Tuesday night’s college hoops schedule is posted at Cappers Info, and we are taking a close look at some of the best games on the slate and making our NCAA basketball picks for the duels ahead.

College Basketball Matchup: Michigan State Spartans @ Illinois Fighting Illini
Date: Tuesday, January 31st, 7:00 ET
Location: Assembly Hall, Champaign, IL
College Basketball Odds: Michigan State -3
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

It has been awhile since the Spartans have been in any real trouble in a game, but this is one of these cases where we can see some issues. Illinois has been great this year at Assembly Hall, losing just once all season. Though we know that the team has some issues, we do think that it is good enough to get the job done in this game, which is suddenly becoming important with a slew of teams sitting on or near the bubble that are trying to get into the dance.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Illinois +3

College Basketball Matchup: Clemson Tigers @ Virginia Cavaliers
Date: Tuesday, January 31st, 7:00 ET
Location: John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA
College Basketball Odds: Virginia -8
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

If you’re looking for the definition of ugly, this is going to be the game of the night for you. Clemson can’t stay out of its own way for the most part, and it is just 2-9 ATS in its last 11 games overall. Still, we think that the time is here to start fading the Cavs. They lost outright to V-Tech a week and a half ago, didn’t cover BC, and really probably should have lost at NC State. The oddsmakers are starting to catch up.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Clemson +8

College Basketball Matchup: Vanderbilt Commodores @ Arkansas Razorbacks
Date: Tuesday, January 31st, 9:00 ET
Location: Bud Walton Arena, Fayetteville, AR
College Basketball Odds: Vanderbilt -2.5
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

The Commodores have been a tremendous squad on the road this year, but the Hogs have been amazing at home. The end result is probably going to be a great game between two solid teams. The difference here is that Vandy knows that it is in great shape and really doesn’t get hurt all that much by a loss. Arkansas though, really needs as many wins as it can get if it wants to get into the March Madness discussions. Though the ‘Dores are the better team, we do think that the Razorbacks are going to eke out a victory.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Arkansas +2.5
