NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Florida Gators (16-2, 11-4 ATS)
The Gators have quietly won eight straight games overall, and they have covered the spread in the last seven of those victories. Florida is shooting 49.3 percent from the field, good enough to rank in the top 10 in the nation, but they are also getting it done on the defensive side of the ball. The Gators have held opponents to fewer than 50 points in three of their last four games, and they haven't allowed 60 points in any of their last seven games.
Florida will face Ole Miss this Saturday, and they have taken the last three meetings with the Rebels. The only other ranked opponent they will face this season will be Missouri, who they have already blown out at home by a score of 83-52.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Arizona Wildcats (17-2, 9-8 ATS)
The Wildcats are very fortunate to have a record of 17-2, they have gotten lucky more than once in recent games. Arizona has faced two top 25 teams this season, and they won each of those games by a single point, defeating Florida 65-64, and sneaking by San Diego State 68-67. They lost outright to Oregon on the road, and UCLA at home.
Arizona has failed to cover the points in seven of their last 10 games overall, despite winning eight of 10. They have a couple of tough games coming up against Pac-12 rivals Washington and Stanford, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them lose at least one of those two games.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked – Notre Dame Fighting Irish (16-4, 9-8 ATS)
After losing three of their last five, the Irish have fallen out of the rankings, but two of those three losses were close games against tough teams. Admittedly they looked terrible getting blown out by the Hoyas at home, losing 63-47, but they bounced back with a solid road win over South Florida their last time out.
Notre Dame is one of the best shooting teams in the country, hitting 50% from the field this season. The Irish are 4-3 in Big East play, tied with #24 Cincinnati, who they have already beaten earlier in the year.
Notre Dame will host Villanova Wednesday night, and the Wildcats have just knocked of two of the nation's top 5 teams. If the Irish can get the win at home tonight, you can expect to see them back in the rankings next week.

The Royals got back on track yesterday, earning a much-needed 6-1 victory in their series finale vs. Houston. They should carry some positive momentum into this evening's opener vs. the Cards.
Duffy doesn't genreally go deep into games and he isn't about to win any Cy Young awards. All the same, he's been pretty solid. In eight starts, he's 2-1 with a 3.54 ERA and 1.082 WHIP, striking out 50, while walking only 11, in just over 40 innings. In 13 career appearances against the NL, he's got a 3.13 ERA.
Note that the Royals bullpen, which has been pretty good overall, got a bit of a break yesterday, also much-needed, as Kennedy went seven complete.
Wainwright has certainly been a lot better of late. However, he's still got a 4.73 ERA on the season, including an ugly 5.74 mark in eight road starts.
Duffy last faced the Cards back in 2014. He tossed six shutout innings, allowing only a single hit, en route to a 6-0 victory. With the Royals an outstanding 49-18 (+28.4) their past 67 home games when the line ranged from +100 to -125, take a second look at KC in this one.
