NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Arizona Wildcats (12-0, 7-3-0 ATS)
The Wildcats remained undefeated, with a win by the narrowest of margins on Christmas Day, defeating San Diego State by a score of 68-67. The victory marked the second time this season the Wildcats have beaten a ranked opponent. They knocked off Florida earlier this month in another close game, winning 65-64. Arizona failed to cover the spread against the Aztecs, but they have been very profitable so far this year, covering the points 70 percent of the time with an ATS record of 7-3.
The Wildcats will host the 9-2 Colorado Buffaloes on January 3, and the Buffaloes already have a victory over a ranked opponent under their belts, defeating Baylor 60-58 on November 16. Arizona doesn't have an easy schedule, with plenty of games coming up against quality opponents, but they don't play another ranked team for the remainder of the season.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Michigan State Spartans (11-2, 3-7 ATS)
The Spartans have won six straight since losing to the Miami Hurricanes in Miami on November 11. While they have a record of 11-2 SU, the Spartans have burned their backers, failing to cover the spread 70 percent of the time this season with an ATS record of 3-7.
When they take on the Golden Gophers in Minnesota on New Years Eve, it will be their third game against a ranked opponent. They are 1-1 in such games so far, losing their season opener to UCONN and then defeating the Kansas Jayhawks just four days later by a score of 67-64.
Michigan State has a tough road ahead in the second half of the season, with eight of their final 15 games coming against ranked opponents.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked - UConn Huskies (9-2, 2-7 ATS)
The Huskies have won three straight games since their loss to N.C. State at the beginning of the month. They failed to cover the points in each of those three victories, despite the fact none of those games were close, including an 88-73 win over Fordham, winning by 15 as a 15.5-point favorite.
UConn will host the other Huskies of Washington this Saturday, and then travel to Milwaukee to take on the Marquette Golden Eagles on Tuesday. While neither of those matchups are easy, back-to-back wins against unranked teams could put Connecticut back in the rankings.

The Rockets have lost two straight games and will be out to snap that tonight as they host the fading Pistons. Houston lost at Atlanta without James Harden in the lineup because of his suspension and it followed that up with a home loss on Wednesday against Memphis. It was a rare second straight loss as the Rockets have been an outstanding bounce back team this season, going 14-5 straight up and against the number following a loss. They have dropped back-to-back games only four times and avoided a three-game skid each time by winning those follow up games by an average of 14.8 ppg. The Pistons are riding a four-game losing streak and going back, they are 6-11 over their last 17 games to fall three and half games back in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. After winning seven straight games on the road starting late December, the Pistons have dropped seven of their last eight on the highway. They were able to cover the first two of this roadtrip but they head to Houston at a bad time as the Rockets will also be out for revenge following a 13-point loss in Detroit just over a month ago.
