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.

- pinnacle @ -1.5 -106 Spain
It's true that Spain were the biggest underachievers at last yeas world cup, but with a lot of "the old guard" now retired from International Football we should start to see the new generation gel.
We're playing Spain -1.5 (Asian Handicap) this means we need Spain to win by 2 clear Goals for the bet to pay.
If you look through Ukraine's recent form you may be fooled into think they have a chance in this game, we don't feel that's the case. They've had a string of easy games against the likes of Luxembourg, Belarus, Lithuania and Macedonia.
Today's match-up will be a serious test for Ukraine.
Spain come into this game with a very strong squad featuring some of the best players on the planet.
- GK - De Gea (Arguably the best Keeper in the World)
- Defenders: Pique, Sergio Ramos, Alba, and Carvajal
- Midfield: Busquets, Isco, Iniesta, David Silva, Fabregas and Koke
- Forwards: Morata, Alacer
Key Stat: Spain have won their last 14 Euro qualification games at home, scoring an impressive 39 Goals in the process
Verdict: Against higher ranked teams the Ukraine struggle on the road, expect Spain to dominate this one
