NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Minnesota Golden Gophers (15-2, 11-4 ATS)
The Golden Gophers took an 11 game winning streak into Indiana when they faced the Hoosiers on Saturday, and while the streak came to an end, they did give Indiana a run for their money. The Gophers have been a good bet all year, in fact their record ATS is the best of any team in the top 25.
They have played 5 ranked teams this season and have won three of those five games. Their only two losses came against Duke and Indiana, and both those teams have been ranked in the top spot in the country at some point during the season. Minnesota will be in danger of losing a third consecutive game as they host #3 Michigan on Thursday.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Wichita State Shockers (15-2, 8-6 ATS)
The Shockers have an impressive record at 15-2 to start the season, but when you look at their opponents so far, it soon becomes apparent that they haven't really played anybody. They have taken advantage of an easy schedule, without playing a ranked opponent so far this season. They lost their last game at home to the Evansville Purple Aces by a score of 71-67.
They will take on Illinois State on Wednesday, before playing #12 ranked Creighton this weekend. It will mark the first time that either team has faced a top 25 opponent. It's safe to assume that the loser of this meeting will be dropped from the rankings next week.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked – Oregon Ducks (14-2, 8-6 ATS)
The Ducks recently ended the Arizona Wildcats unbeaten run to start the season, winning 70-66 at home. The victory marked their second win over a top 25 opponent this year, as they beat UNLV by a score of 83-79 in Las Vegas back in November. The Ducks are still unbeaten at home, with a record of 12-0 this season, and winners of 18 in a row dating back to last season.
They head out on the road on Thursday to take on Pac-12 rivals USC, and then they face an even tougher task taking on the Bruins in California over the weekend. While the game against UCLA is their only meeting with a top 25 team for the remainder of the season, it isn't as though their schedule is going to be easy.
The Ducks will play home and home series' against Colorado, Utah, Cal and the Washington Huskies.

Both Cleveland and Pittsburgh are coming off high-scoring series sweeps but I expect that to change tonight. The Indians took all four games in Tampa Bay to open their roadtrip and all four of those games went over the total as well. Pitching was solid but the offense was the difference as Cleveland averaged 6.5 rpg after averaging 2.5 rpg in its previous 11 games. The Pirates are coming off a sweep in Detroit and all three of those games went over the total as well. The offense exploded for 22 runs over the three-game set but this has been a very inconsistent offense on the season. Pittsburgh came into that series scoring three runs or less in nine of their previous 12 games. The pitching matchup should keep this one low scoring. Trevor Bauer takes the hill for the Indians and while he is having a fairly solid season, he has been dominant on the road. He has a 1.69 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in six road starts with five of those being quality and most importantly, all six of those games went under the total. Charlie Morton has been roughed up in his last two starts after posting a 1.62 ERA through his first five starts. This is a great opportunity for a rebound as he has been dominant at home with a 1.98 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in four starts, three of which have stayed below the total. The under is 10-2-1 in the Indians last 13 games as an underdog while the under is 12-5 in the Pirates last 17 games as a home favorite. Play Under (929) Cleveland Indians/(930) Pittsburgh Pirates
