Exposing the Top 25: Where the NCAAB polls went wrong
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most overrated Top-25 team: Wisconsin Badgers

Wisconsin has been one of the more inconsistent teams when it comes to perimeter shooting. The Badgers look like world beaters one night and then go ice cold from the outside on another.

Wisconsin misses the outside shooting of Jon Leuer, with no one stepping up to take his place. The Badgers are still one of the best teams in the nation on the defensive end, but you have to think that when they're challenged by athletic and quick teams in March, their stingy defense won't be enough.

Wisconsin does play in the difficult Big Ten, but it’s just 8-5 SU in its last 13 games and it has suffered some ugly losses, including those to Michigan State, Michigan, and Iowa. The Badgers must stay focused on Iowa Thursday and not look ahead to Sunday's game at Ohio State or they could get swept by the Hawkeyes.

Most underrated Top-25 team: Notre Dame Fighting Irish

After posting Notre Dame as an unranked team that deserved to be ranked on a couple of occasions, the Fighting Irish are currently in the Top 25 but not ranked high enough, in my opinion.

Since Mike Brey tweaked the Irish attack and lineup, they have done nothing but win. The Irish have won eight in a road SU, while going 7-1 ATS. Notre Dame has beaten Syracuse and won on the road over West Virginia, Seton Hall, UConn, and Villanova, while whipping Marquette by 17 points in South Bend.

The Irish have held their last eight opponents to 55.9 ppg on 38.3 percent shooting. They have been getting stingier on the deep perimeter, holding their last five foes to 16-of-79 3-point shooting - a connection rate of just 20.3 percent.

Notre Dame is playing as well as anyone in the polls right now, but must be cautious when it hosts West Virginia Wednesday.

Unranked team that should be ranked: St. Louis Billikens

Rick Majerus' squad crushed Richmond and Fordham this past week and, while we expected the Billikens to make it past those two teams without much resistance, we still feel they deserve a few more votes.

The Billikens, at 22-5 SU, are just a handful of plays from a 26-1 SU mark. And all five losses came against teams that will be playing in postseason tournaments. Rick Majerus has always produced Billikens teams that were stingy on defensive, but it was usually due to the fact that they had to play a deliberate offensive pace because of a lack of scorers. This year's version can score points. St. Louis averages nearly 70 points per game on 45.7 percent shooting.

St. Louis has a great shot to finish the season with three more wins, facing Rhode Island on the road, hosting Xavier, then playing at Duquesne. I believe by the time the regular season is finished, SLU will be ranked in the Top 25.

West Virginia Mountaineers at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-3, 125)

Riding an eight-game win streak all the way to a No. 18 national ranking, Notre Dame takes aim at a season sweep of West Virginia after rallying for a 55-51 victory in Morgantown, W.Va., on Feb. 8.

The Fighting Irish had made just two of their 18 3-point shots in the game before hitting three straight during a late 11-0 run to seize control of the contest.

Since losing star forward Tim Abromaitis to a season-ending injury in November, the red-hot Fighting Irish have found surprising success by slowing the pace of the game.

Their 61.1 possessions per contest in conference action are the second fewest among Big East teams, and they are allowing a league-best 58.7 points against conference opponents.

Eric Atkins is putting up 13 points per game and just dropped 17 points and five assists in Notre Dame’s 74-70 overtime win at Villanova.

Pick: Irish


Michigan State Spartans at Minnesota Golden Gophers (6, 128)

After a stretch in which No. 6 Michigan State dropped three of five games to end January, it has not lost since.

The Spartans, who lost those three contests on the road by a combined nine points, have rolled to five straight double-digit victories in February – including three against ranked teams – by getting back to coach Tom Izzo’s usual trademarks, rebounding and defense.

During their five-game winning streak, the Spartans are enjoying a plus-11 advantage in rebounding and holding their opponents to 34.3 percent shooting from the field.

In Sunday’s road win at Purdue, Michigan State forced the Boilermakers to miss 22 of their first 23 field-goal attempts in the second half after allowing Purdue to shoot 46.7 percent in the first half.

While Minnesota is fourth in the Big Ten in field goal percentage, the Spartans’ hard-nosed defensive approach figures to rattle the turnover-prone Golden Gophers, who commit a conference-worst 14.3 turnovers per game.

Pick: Spartans

Dallas at LA Lakers Wednesday Preview
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The last time we saw the Los Angeles Lakers in Dallas, it resulted in what looks like a sizable shift in the Laker franchise’s direction.

The date was May 8, 2011, and it was Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals. The Lakers entered the playoffs as the huge favorites in the West to reach their fourth straight NBA Finals, but they were pushed by the New Orleans Hornets and Chris Paul in the first round. Still, not many gave the Mavericks much of a chance in the semis.

By now we all know what happened, as the Mavs finished their stunning sweep on that May 8 afternoon, a 122-86 embarrassment, sending Lakers coach Phil Jackson off to Montana (or wherever the Zen Master is nowadays). It was the largest margin of victory in a game that ended a four-game playoff sweep in NBA history. Dallas would go on to upset the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, while the Lakers started asking questions that still haven’t been answered this season.

L.A. knew it needed to get some offseason help to get through the West and figured it had the answer in landing Chris Paul – for about 30 minutes until NBA Commissioner David Stern put the kibosh on the deal. Then the Lakers shockingly traded star sixth man Lamar Odom to these Mavericks for essentially a trade exception, something the team still hasn’t used. Clearly the Lakers (19-13) remain flawed, and this week Kobe Bryant vented about whether the team would trade Pau Gasol or not (he was in the Paul three-way trade). Kobe’s point: either do something now or say Gasol is staying put.

This is the start of an incredibly tough back-to-back as L.A. visits Oklahoma City on Thursday night in the teams’ last game before the all-star break. Think there will be any Dwight Howard-to-L.A. rumors at All-Star Weekend in Orlando? This is the Mavs’ final game before the break.


How the Teams Enter

L.A. enters off one of its most impressive games of the season, beating Portland, 103-92, at Staples Center on Monday. The game wasn’t remotely that close. The Blazers took a 3-0 lead and then all the Lakers did was go on a 37-4 run. One night after giving up a season-high 63 points in the first half of a loss at Phoenix, the Lakers yielded a season-low 30 to Portland. Bryant had 28 points to lead the Lakers. It was only the fifth time this season the Lakers reached triple digits in points.

Dallas (21-12), which had a six-game winning streak stopped Sunday in New York, had little trouble with visiting Boston on Monday night, winning 89-73 to improve to 13-5 at home. Dirk Nowitzki, as usual, led Dallas with 26 points and a season-high 16 boards, while Boston was playing without suspended point guard Rajon Rondo and injured Kevin Garnett. Since getting a four-game break to strengthen his sore right knee and improve his game conditioning, Nowitzki is averaging 21.7 points the last 13 games. The Mavs are 9-4 in that stretch.


Betting Story Lines

Kobe says he thinks the trade rumors are affecting Gasol’s game, but the Spaniard has 10 straight double-doubles – his longest streak as a Laker -- after putting up 16 points and 12 boards against the Blazers. GM Mitch Kupchak wouldn’t commit to talking Gasol’s name out of trade talks with the standard “I will do whatever makes the team better” cliché. The Lakers held a players-only meeting after Monday’s win to stress togetherness in the wake of Bryant’s public outburst and some complaining about Coach Mike Brown’s practice schedule -- the players were not happy that after beating Phoenix at home Friday night and flying to Phoenix on Saturday afternoon, they had to get up for a 10 a.m. shootaround Sunday morning (and went on to lose that night’s game handily).

Dallas has found some guard help off the bench in Dominque Jones. He had seven points, five assists and one turnover in 25 minutes against Boston. And perhaps more importantly he played well enough that starter Jason Kidd spent the last 15 minutes on the bench.

The Mavs are carefully monitoring Kidd’s minutes, which has become especially vital with backup point guard Delonte West out 3-5 weeks with a fractured ring finger and fellow guard Rodrigue Beaubois having missed the last three games because of his father's death. He won’t play tonight and reportedly is on the trade market. The 38-year-old Kidd already has missed 10 games this year. The Mavs’ bench has been a problem otherwise of late. In the past two games, Vince Carter has averaged 6.5 points on 31.2 percent shooting and grabbed only four rebounds in 53 minutes. And Odom, a huge disappointment, is 3-for-14 from the field (0-for-9 from long range) in the past two games for six points.

The Lakers and Mavs played one of the season’s ugliest games in L.A. back on Jan. 16, a Lakers 73-70 victory with L.A. a 3.5-point favorite. Derek Fisher hit a tiebreaking three-pointer with 3.1 seconds to play, while the Mavs’ Carter missed a tying three-pointer at the buzzer. Kobe entered that game having scored at least 40 points in four in a row but was held to 14. Bryant was 0-for-10 from the field when guarded by Shawn Marion. Dirk had 21 but a crucial turnover late. The Mavs shot 35 percent from the field and the Lakers 38.2. They were a combined 5-for-36 from three-point range, with the Lakers’ lone three-point of the night being Fisher’s.

The Lakers were 1-1 in Big D during last regular season before losing both playoff games.


Betting Odds and Key Trends

The Mavericks opened as 4.5-point favorites with the total at 179.5 on NBA odds. L.A. is 15-17 ATS overall and 4-12 ATS on road. Dallas is 20-13 ATS overall and 11-7 at home. ‘Over/under’ records: LAL 14-17-1, DAL 13-20.

The Lakers are 1-6 ATS in past seven on the road. The Mavs are 12-3 ATS in their past 15 at home vs. teams with losing road record. The over is 4-1 in Lakers’ past five. The under is 4-1 in Mavs’ past five. The Lakers are 0-5 ATS in past five meetings and 1-4 ATS in past five in Big D.


Predictions

The Mavericks know they have nearly a week off after this one so they can go all out, while the Lakers have to travel to Oklahoma City right after this one. I have no reason to trust the Lakers when they are 5-12 on the road. Take the Mavs and give the points.

Game of the day: Atlanta Hawks at New York Knicks
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Atlanta Hawks at New York Knicks (-5, 187)

THE STORY: Jeremy Lin and Carmelo Anthony finally got on the court together on Monday. The results weren’t so great. The New York Knicks have some hope for the future with Lin directing the offense, but they still need some work on the defensive end. Lin was torched by Deron Williams in the loss to New Jersey on Monday. The Atlanta Hawks are having the opposite problem, with the offense consistently unable to keep pace. The stumbling Hawks have dropped seven of 10 this month while putting up 86.2 points.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, SSO (Atlanta), MSG (New York)

ABOUT THE HAWKS (19-13): Atlanta could use the All-Star break to get its shooting back together. The Hawks have gone over 90 points twice in the last 10 games and have been held under 80 in dropping each of the last two. Atlanta came back from a 20-point deficit in Chicago on Monday to cut the lead to five but then went the final 3:24 without a point in the 90-79 setback. Joe Johnson was injured late on Monday and will miss the final two games before the break. No one on the team needs a rest more than the All-Star guard, who is shooting 17.2 percent (5 for 29) from 3-point range in the last five games.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (16-17): New York dropped below .500 again with the 100-92 loss to the Nets and have a trip to Miami looming on Thursday. The star has dimmed around “Linsanity” a bit with losses in two of the last three but the early returns with Anthony are good. The All-Star forward returned to the lineup and had no trouble deferring and distributing, finishing with six assists. The Knicks are also attempting to integrate Baron Davis and J.R. Smith into the rotation.

TRENDS:

- New York is 7-2 against the spread in its last nine home games.
- The under is 9-3 in Atlanta's last 12.
- New York is 8-3 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between the two teams.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The teams split four meetings last season, with New York taking the final two.

2. Knicks G Iman Shumpert (knee) sat out Monday and is day-to-day.
