College Basketball moves a week closer to the ultimate time of year. March Madness will be arriving before you know it.

Top College Basketball Betting Picks of the Week – January 23

Kansas Jayhawks over Oklahoma Sooners – Tuesday

What a monster Big 12 game on Tuesday. If the Jayhawks are going to get knocked off their perch at the top of the Big 12 standings, this is a game Oklahoma needs to win. Trae Young is outstanding for the Sooners, but teams are figuring out how to beat the Sooners despite Young scoring a ton of points.

Look for Kansas to give the Sooners their third straight loss and essentially knocking them out of the race for the conference title.

Xavier Musketeers over Marquette Golden Eagles – Wednesday

The Musketeers come into the new polls ranked within the Top 10. Chris Mack’s team continues to win games, and are a threat out of the Big East. Marquette is coming off a win, but their 13-6 record has them looking at the bubble for the NCAA Tournament.

Look for the Musketeers to use their solid defense to put the Golden Eagles away early in this game on Wednesday.

Purdue Boilermakers over Michigan Wolverines – Thursday

Matt Painter and his Purdue Boilermakers come into this game ranked third in the nation. The Boilermakers lead the Big Ten and have yet to lose a conference game. They have won 15 straight games. Using their ability to pound the basketball inside, and their solid defense.

This should be another chance to grab a win. The Boilermakers make it 16 straight on Thursday over Michigan.

Duke Blue Devils over Virginia Cavaliers – Saturday

What a game. The biggest game in the ACC so far this season. Two teams ranked inside the Top 5 coming into the week. The game is at Duke, and the ability to score and athleticism is going to put them apart from the Cavaliers.

Once again, the Blue Devils should be one of your College Basketball Betting Picks

While Virginia is really good, they are not good enough to win at Duke on Saturday. Duke beats Virginia by 10+ points at Coach K court.

West Virginia Mountaineers over Kentucky Wildcats – Saturday

As a pair of the Big 12/SEC challenge, this is the premiere matchup. The Wildcats have not been themselves, as they come into the new week unranked. The Mountaineers are still fighting for a Big 12 title, with their 16-3 record overall. Kentucky has issues to take care of, and until they do so, no way can they win in Morgantown.

The Mountaineers nearly took down Kansas at home, but this time they are going to get Kentucky.
