NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Syracuse Orange (8-0, 5-0 ATS)
It might seem strange to say that a team ranked in the top five is underrated, but the Orange are the only team in the country with a perfect record SU as well as ATS. They haven't faced a ranked opponent since they opened the season with a win in the Carrier Classic over San Diego State, but that game was not close. They own the longest running home winning streak at 28 games, and with five of their next six games coming against unranked opponents at home, you can expect the Orange to remain undefeated for the foreseeable future.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Kansas Jayhawks (8-1, 3-5 ATS)
Kansas has won eight of nine, but they are the only team ranked in the top 10 with a losing record ATS. They have only faced one ranked team, and they lost that game 67-64 to Michigan State. They had their hands full when they faced Oregon State last week, just sneaking by the Beavers 84-78. The Beavers were without their starting center in that game, as Angus Brandt saw his season come to an end with a knee injury. The Jayhawks didn't have much trouble with Colorado on Saturday, blowing out the Buffaloes by a score of 90-54. We will see how good they really are when they face the Buckeyes on December 22.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked - NC State Wolfpack (6-2, 4-3 ATS)
The Wolfpack have just two losses on the season, and one of those was a very close game against #2 Michigan, losing 79-72. They bounced right back defeating the UCONN Huskies at Madison Square Garden in a very close contest by a score of 69-65. They followed that up by cruising to an easy victory over Cleveland State, shooting 55% from the field and winning 80-63. C.J. Leslie was 7 of 8 shooting with 19 points and eight boards in that game. Their next five games are at home against unranked opponents, and a few more wins should get them back into the top 25 where they belong.

HE DID IT AGAIN!
The Iceman cashed in his GAME of the WEEK on the SPUR$ last night, putting him at a PERFECT 10-0 with his last 10 NBA plays. He's delivered 11-STRAIGHT WINNING CARDS, showing a profit of +$15,952.
This is a Free #NHL play on the Calgary #Flames.
The Isles lost in overtime in Edmonton last night, just two days after beating the Jets in overtime. They play on back to back nights, as well as their third game in four nights at Calgary Friday.
The Flames are coming off a 4-1 home victory over the Sens on Wednesday, with rookie goaltender Joni Ortio stopping 30-of-31 shots. Ortio has been impressive in each of his first two starts for the Flames, and we should see him back between the pipes versus the Isles.
After opening up a 2-0 lead in the first two periods of last night's game, the Isles ran out of steam in the third, allowing the Oilers to force OT, and eventually win on a Taylor Hall goal. It appears that fatigue has finally set in.
The Flames 20 year old Finnish prospect Markus Granlund scored his first NHL goal in the win over Ottawa, and he's getting a chance to play here as the season winds down, making the most of it.
There isn't much incentive for the Isles to play with any intensity here tonight, so don't expect them to be battling hard for loose pucks in the corner. Calgary should be able to out-work the visitors, giving the home crowd something to cheer about.
Take the Flames.
