Posted by Derrick Harper on February 5, 2018 in

College Basketball saw some awesome action last week and some amazing results over the weekend. The Duke Blue Devils, Kansas Jayhawks, and Kentucky Wildcats all lost on the same day. Those are three power programs all going down. As February moves along- this week we see some great games. Let’s take a look at the College Basketball Betting Odds and Top Picks of the Week.

Top College Basketball Betting Picks of the Week – February 5th

Oklahoma Sooners over West Virginia Mountaineers – Monday

A massive Big 12 game. The winner will stay in the mix at the top of the Big 12, a game behind Kansas and Texas Tech. The loser will have a long road to get back to the top of the Big 12 standings. Oklahoma lost to West Virginia earlier in this season, and are coming off a rivalry loss to Texas. Look for Trae Young and the offense to get the best of the Mountaineers and even up the season series between the two ranked team.

Kentucky Wildcats over Tennessee Volunteers – Tuesday

In the SEC – the Kentucky Wildcats are looking to bounce back from their loss at Missouri. The SEC is still up for grabs, with a surprise at the top, the Auburn Tigers. The Wildcats are 17-6 on the season, while Tennessee is 17-5. The Volunteers have won 5 straight games but will be tested in this game. Look for John Calipari and his Wildcats to get back on track for a win in this game at home.

Purdue Boilermakers over Ohio State Buckeyes – Wednesday

The top two teams in the Big Ten will get together in West Lafayette. The Boilermakers have won 19 straight games, and do not appear to be slowing down anytime soon. A win for Purdue in this game would give them great positioning for a Big Ten title. The Buckeyes are coming off a narrow win at home over Illinois. Look for the big guys of Purdue to have a game in the paint, which causes the Buckeyes some problems.

Duke Blue Devils over North Carolina Tar Heels – Thursday

This game used to be for the top of the Atlantic Coast Conference – but this time it’s to see who can stick around for a chance at second place in the conference. The Virginia Cavaliers are running away with the conference.

Once again, Duke is one of the College Basketball Betting favorites of the Week.

This is the best rivalry in College Basketball and two big-time powers. The Tar Heels are looking to avoid their 8th loss already this season. The defending champions are at home, but the talent of Duke wins out in this game on Thursday.

Villanova Wildcats over Butler Bulldogs – Saturday

The only loss of the season for the Villanova Wildcats came to the Butler Bulldogs. Jay Wright and his team have big-time revenge on their minds. Villanova comes into the week as winners of 9 straight games. Look for the guard play of Villanova to completely take over this game and beat the Bulldogs by double digits.
