NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Georgetown Hoyas (18-4, 11-7 ATS)
We can't forget about Georgetown, after a slow start to the season, the Hoyas are making some noise winning six in a row. Three of those victories came against top 25 teams (Louisville, Notre Dame & Marquette). Georgetown backers have been lining their pockets during a very profitable 9-2 ATS run by the Hoyas.
The schedule doesn't get any easier for Georgetown, traveling to Cincy to take on the Bearcats on Friday. They will close out February with a pair of tough games on the road against Syracuse and Connecticut. They are currently just a half game back of the Orange in the Big East, and they face Syracuse twice before season's end.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Creighton Blue Jays (20-5, 13-9 ATS)
The Blue Jays were a popular team with the betting public early in the year, as they were an impressive 10-2 ATS at the beginning of January. Creighton is now coming off back to back losses, and the Blue Jays have dropped four of their last seven. They have only covered the spread once in their past eight games, costing their backers a good chunk of coin.
The Blue Jays are locked in a three way tie for the lead in the MVC, with Wichita State and Indiana State. They have shot the ball well all year, and they rank first in the country hitting 51 percent from the field. They haven't been hitting their shots in recent games, losing to Illinois State and Indiana State, and falling well short of their season average in both of those contests.
Their next game isn't going to be an easy one, as they go out on the road to face Northern Iowa, a team coming off three straight wins. The Panthers have already upset Wichita State at home earlier this month.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked – Wichita State Shockers (20-5, 11-10-1 ATS)
Surely if Creighton can remain in the rankings, then the Shockers should be there as well. After all, Wichita State has an identical record, playing in the same conference against all the same opponents, but when these teams faced each other, it was the Shockers that shocked the Blue Jays, winning by a score of 67-64.
Both teams have tough games upcoming, and they will face each other in a rematch in Omaha on the 2nd of March. Wichita will play three of five at home prior to facing the Jays in the final game of the season, while Creighton plays four of five on the road. Needless to say, it wouldn't be much of a shocker to see the Shockers come out on top in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Angels avoided a sweep with a win over Oakland on Wednesday and they bring in a 4-2 road record in their three-game set at Detroit. They have won nine straight meetings against the Tigers and I expect that to continue with a big advantage in the starting pitching matchup. It is rare getting Jered Weaver as an underdog but when we do, we have to take advantage. He has not gotten off to a very good start this season but that only helps us here as he is coming off consecutive non-quality starts after opening the season with a quality outing against the Mariners. He has posted three straight quality starts against the Tigers and all of those have come in Detroit. The Tigers won yesterday against the Indians in their rain shortened series but after a 4-0 start to the season, they are just 3-5 over their last eight games. They send Drew Smyly to the hill tonight for his first start of the season and his first start since 2012. He was awesome last season out of the bullpen but his starting record has not been very good and he will be limited tonight as he has pitched only six innings the entire season. Only two of his last 12 starts have been quality performances and the Angels are hitting .284 on the road against left-handed pitching this season. Play (915) Los Angeles Angels
