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.

This is the Sunday night ESPN game and I believe this one sets up as a classic pitchers duel. The Orioles will send Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3, 7.31 ERA) to the hill to face the Red Sox. Jimenez has had a poor start to the season but this is the perfect opponent for the struggling starter to get untracked against; the Red Sox have been inconsistent at the plate this season, so this is Jimenez’s moment to start turning things around. Boston's Jake Peavy (0-0, 1.93) is unbeaten in his last 10 regular-season starts, going 3-0 with a 3.17 ERA. He struck out eight and gave up one run in six innings in Tuesday’s 2-1 road loss to the Chicago White Sox. Peavey has pitched well against the Orioles with 3.15 ERA and 2-0 record. Baltimore’s best hitter in Chris Davis is 2 for 17 with eight strikeouts against Boston this year and hitless in five at-bats versus Peavy. Keep in mind that the lower number is 3-1 in Boston games when the total number is set at either 9 or 9.5. Also, the Red Sox have seen the total go “under” the number in six of nine vs. divisional opponents this year. Four of five games between these two teams this season (including last night’s game) saw the lower number hit. I believe the stage is once again set for a lower-scoring affair. How about you? Pitchers duel or slugfest?
