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 Dallas in the NBA for Friday
The Spurs have bounced back from their loss in Cleveland with a pair of home wins over New Orleans and Orlando and now hit the road where they have dropped two straight. Overall, San Antonio is 14-8 on the road which is tied for the second best road record in the NBA and while they have been solid as a road favorite, they are facing a team with a similar home record. The Mavericks are riding a two-game losing skid with a road loss at Atlanta followed by a home loss against Miami two days later. The Mavericks are 14-7 over their last 21 home games and none of those seven losses have bee by more than seven points with six of those defeats coming by four points or less. They have covered five of seven games as home underdogs and motivation will not be an issue as they will be out to avenge a 29-point loss in San Antonio last month. Dallas gets Deron Williams back tonight who has been out the last two games while the Spurs will again be without Tim Duncan and are now without Manu Ginobili for an extended time. The Mavericks are 6-1 ATS this season as single-digit underdogs of six or more points and they are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games against teams with a winning road record.
