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.

This is a 1* Free Play on the Duke/Army Over.
Last week was an almost unprecedented week where the under came in 45 of 57 lined games in college football and that has affected the totals for many of this week's games, especially for those teams that are on under runs. We will be using both of these to our advantage for this game. Duke is off to a 3-2 start this season as the offense has been inconsistent but the defense has picked up the slack by allowing just 269.8 ypg and 10.6 ppg, good for 9th and 5th in the country respectively. Because of the stop unit, the Blue Devils have stayed below the total in all five of their games this season. This is not a particularly good matchup however for another low scoring game as the offense should have no problem scoring a bunch here. The offense was held to 10 points three games back against Northwestern and nine points against Boston College last time out and those are two of the top three scoring defenses in the country. In comparison, Army is ranked 82nd in scoring defense so Duke can get back to normal here. The Black Knights have had a tough luck season as they are 1-4 with the four losses coming by 2, 5, 3 and 6 points with the last coming against Penn St. Even though the schedule has been pretty difficult, they are averaging a solid 27.6 ppg so even coming close to that here will push this one way over as we can expect Duke to get its fair share of points. The over is 7-2-1 in the Blue Devils last 10 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game while the over is 11-5 in the Black Knights last 16 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.
