NCAAF - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Baylor Bears (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS)
The Bears haven't yet faced a quality opponent, but they sure have beaten up on the opposition so far. Last week they defeated the ULM Warhawks by a score of 70-7. Success on offense is nothing new for Baylor, as the Bears were the highest scoring team in the country last year. Their defense couldn't stop anybody though, including the Warhawks, who came close to pulling off the upset in a 47-42 defeat last September. It looks like this year's team has vastly improved on the defensive side of the ball, and that's going to make them tough to beat.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Notre Dame (3-1 SU, 0-3-1 ATS)
Tommy Rees isn't having a lot of success at quarterback for the Irish, and he had a particularly tough game last week. Rees completed 14-of-34 attempts for 141 yards, as the Irish hung on to win 17-13 over Michigan State. The Oklahoma Sooners come to town this weekend, and if they hand the Irish a second loss, expect to see Notre Dame fall out of the rankings.
Unranked team that should be ranked: Missouri (3-0 SU, 2-0-1 ATS)
The Tigers moved to 3-0 with a convincing road win over Indiana, but they have yet to face an SEC team. Missouri will host Arkansas State this week, then the schedule gets a lot tougher in October, with games against Vanderbilt, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. A win over Arkansas State will likely propel Missouri into the top 25, but it could be short-lived unless they can get an upset over Vanderbilt on the road.

BURNS FREE NHL 1/17
A SWEET 6-1 MLK Day showing included a pair of NEVER-IN-DOUBT WINNERS in the pros, the Wizards & Warriors. That brings Ben Burns to a RIDICULOUS 16-2 his L18 NBA, a SICK 8-1 his last nine. For 2017, he's an INSANE 22-4 ATS. No surprise there, as Ben's NBA has been M-O-N-E-Y for years and also WON HUGE in 2016.
Both these teams are off high-scoring games and games here have been pretty high-scoring all season. That said, an O/U line of six gives us a lot of room to work with. Keep in mind that the Stars average only 2.5 goals per road game.
When these teams met a little over a month ago, at Dallas, the O/U line was 5.5. (It opened at 5.5u125 and closed at 5.5u15.) The result? A 2-0 final score. Nine of the Stars' last 13 visits to MSG have also fallen below the number.
The Stars, who have seen seven of 11 "non-conference" games stay below the total, will be playing a road game with an O/U line of six for just the second time. The first? A 2-1 final at Nashville. Don't be surprised if this one also proves a little lower-scoring than expected.
Ben Burns was 6-1 on Monday, including a PERFECT 3-0 on the ice. Through the first 16 days of 2017, he's now 62-34 overall, good for 18.8 net units of profit. Over the past few seasons, Burns has delivered more than 57 net winners of pure NHL profit. His latest "Personal Favorite" goes today!
