NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Georgetown Hoyas (21-4 SU, 14-7 ATS)
Georgetown is the hottest team in the country, without a doubt. They have won nine straight, covering the points in all of those victories. It's even more impressive than it sounds though, when you look at who they are beating.
The went to South Bend and defeated the #24 Notre Dame Fighting Irish by a score of 63-47, and then followed that up with a home win over #5 Louisville. It was their latest victory that is the most impressive however, winning on the road against Syracuse in a convincing 57-46 win at the Carrier Dome.
They have a big game coming up on Wednesday in Connecticut, it isn't going to be easy against the Huskies, but Georgetown hasn't had any troubles winning on the road lately. They finish the season with a home meeting versus Syracuse, and you know the Orange will have revenge on their minds.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Wisconsin Badgers (19-8 SU, 10-14-1 ATS)
I had the Badger pegged as the most overrated team in the nation last week, and a win over Northwestern has done nothing to change my mind since then. Last week I said: "The Badgers have the lowest winning percentage of any of the ranked teams, yet they find themselves ranked No. 17 overall. Wisconsin has been a losing bet this year, with a terrible 9-14-1 ATS record. The Badgers are only averaging 67 points per game and they are just shooting 42.6 percent from the field."
While they did manage to cover in their win over a weak Northwestern team, they haven't improved their shooting percentage, and they only matched their season average of 67 points. The Badgers play Nebraska at home Tuesday, and they will be a 16 point favorite in that game. They face a much tougher test when they take on Michigan State in East Lansing next Thursday.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked – Connecticut Huskies (19-7 SU, 12-10 ATS)
The Huskies have put together back to back wins, and they are now ahead of #23 Pittsburgh, and just one game back of #21 Notre Dame in the Big East standings. Connecticut's 19-7 record is better than Wisconsin's 19-8 record, yet the Badgers find themselves in the #16 slot.
Connecticut has victories over Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Michigan State. Their next game is at home against Georgetown, and it is going to be a tough one, but if the Huskies can get past the Hoyas, you have to like their chances of sneaking into the top 25 next week.

This is a 1* Free Play on the Duke/Army Over.
Last week was an almost unprecedented week where the under came in 45 of 57 lined games in college football and that has affected the totals for many of this week's games, especially for those teams that are on under runs. We will be using both of these to our advantage for this game. Duke is off to a 3-2 start this season as the offense has been inconsistent but the defense has picked up the slack by allowing just 269.8 ypg and 10.6 ppg, good for 9th and 5th in the country respectively. Because of the stop unit, the Blue Devils have stayed below the total in all five of their games this season. This is not a particularly good matchup however for another low scoring game as the offense should have no problem scoring a bunch here. The offense was held to 10 points three games back against Northwestern and nine points against Boston College last time out and those are two of the top three scoring defenses in the country. In comparison, Army is ranked 82nd in scoring defense so Duke can get back to normal here. The Black Knights have had a tough luck season as they are 1-4 with the four losses coming by 2, 5, 3 and 6 points with the last coming against Penn St. Even though the schedule has been pretty difficult, they are averaging a solid 27.6 ppg so even coming close to that here will push this one way over as we can expect Duke to get its fair share of points. The over is 7-2-1 in the Blue Devils last 10 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game while the over is 11-5 in the Black Knights last 16 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.
