Wednesday 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: Oklahoma State Cowboys @ Missouri Tigers
Date: Wednesday, February 15th, 9:00 ET
Location: Mizzou Arena, Columbia, MO
College Basketball Odds: Missouri -15
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

Okie State has been playing well lately, going 2-2 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in its last four games. We just don’t know if the oddsmakers have given the Pokes enough of a head start in this one, though. Head Coach Frank Haith and his Tigers are really playing well this year, and they are well on their way to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament if they can keep this one. Oklahoma State just doesn’t have the offensive firepower to be able to keep up with the ‘Zou, and in the end, this one probably won’t end up being all that close unless Keiton Page goes on an absolute tear for the Cowboys.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Missouri -15

College Basketball Matchup: North Carolina Tar Heels @ Miami Hurricanes
Date: Wednesday, February 15th, 8:00 ET
Location: Bank United Center, Coral Gables, FL
College Basketball Odds: North Carolina -5.5
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Carolina needs to be really careful in this game. The Hurricanes badly need a resume building upset like this one to feel good about their chances of being in the NCAA Tournament, and without a win like this one, they are probably going to go into the ACC Tournament still searching for that elusive win. The talent is there for the Hurricanes if they can knock down some three point baskets, and we have seen what can happen to these Tar Heels when teams just start to get rolling on them. They don’t tend to have a lot of fight in them when teams go on big time runs. We saw it against Duke. We definitely saw it against Florida State. And we very well could see it against Miami at some point on Wednesday night. An upset is brewing in South Florida on Wednesday.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Miami +5.5

College Basketball Matchup: Villanova Wildcats @ South Florida Bulls
Date: Wednesday, February 15th, 7:00 ET
Location: USF Arena, Tampa Bay, FL
College Basketball Odds: South Florida -3
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

Everyone needs to start to catch on to the fact that South Florida isn’t nearly as bad as its name suggests. Sure, the team is only really beating the squads in the Big East that aren’t really all that great, but Villanova is one of those teams that isn’t that great! The Wildcats have just one win on the road all season long, and Maalik Wayns is going to be playing on a bum ankle, which could really limit his abilities. Things aren’t always pretty for the Bulls, but they find ways to get the job done. Their only loss this year at USF Arena came against a UConn team that is a heck of a lot better than Villanova is, and even on that day, the Bulls only lost by three as touchdown underdogs. The choice in this one is relatively easy on Wednesday night, as the hosts are clearly the better of these two teams by a comfortable margin.

NCAA Basketball Pick: South Florida -3
