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.

- williamhill @ -3.5 -110 Memphis
This is a 1-Star Free Play on Memphis.
After cleaning up in January & February, Ben Burns has taken it to whole new level in March.
Ben has won nine of 10 days this month & is not slowing down.
On a 35-13 streak in the NBA, he won w/ Portland last game after successfully playing against in the previous one.
Here, he looks at today's game @ Memphis.
I won with the Blazers last game. Despite losing in OT, they eked out a cover at Houston. Their previous game also resulted in a close loss. In that game (at Dallas) I'd successfully played against the Blazers.
Off those back-to-back difficult SU losses, I believe the Blazers may struggle here.
The well-rested Grizzlies, who are 8-4 ATS when playing with two day's rest, have won four of their last five games, covering five of their last six.
Going back a little further finds Memphis at 9-3 SU its last 12 games; all nine victories came by a minimum of five points.
The Grizzlies have also beaten the Blazers four straight times. This season's lone previous meeting resulted in a 17-point Memphis win, at Portland.
While the Blazers are now 3-6 ATS (1-8 SU!) their last nine against teams with a winning record, the Grizzlies are 7-2 ATS (6-3 SU) their last nine against winning teams. If the line stays at -4 or less, consider laying the points with Memphis.
WHITE HOT Ben Burns WON AGAIN Monday. He'd finish the day at 4-1, highlighted by a PERFECT 4-0 SWEEP on the hardwood. That brings Burns to a BLISTERING 19-8 the past five days, in all sports. No surprise there. Through the first 10 days of March, Ben is now 35-18 (+$12,810), producing profits on nine of those days. Since early Feb, he's now 84-48 (+26.7K) and since mid-January, he's now an EPIC 127-73 ( $37,867) over his last 200 picks. HUGE Tuesday card. Hop on board!
