On Tuesday, there are a handful of games on the college basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NCAA basketball picks for Tuesday!

College Basketball Matchup: Ohio State Buckeyes @ Minnesota Golden Gophers
Date: Tuesday, February 14th, 9:00 ET
Location: Williams Arena, Minneapolis, MN
College Basketball Odds: Ohio State -8
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Ohio State might have had some troubles in this game if the Golden Gophers were at full strength, but missing out on Trevor Mbakwe is going to hurt. There just isn’t a man out there that can guard Jared Sullinger. The favorite is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 games in this series, which means that OSU is going to get the edge in this one, but we just aren’t sure about this point spread. The Golden Gophers need a win like this one in a big time way to lock down a spot in the NCAA Tournament, something that they are trying to snare like the rest of the teams in the middle of the Big Ten.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Minnesota +8

College Basketball Matchup: Florida Gators @ Alabama Crimson Tide
Date: Tuesday, February 14th, 7:00 ET
Location: Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, AL
College Basketball Odds: Florida -5
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

The Gators have lost back to back games, but they are getting the Crimson Tide at just the right time. Alabama still won’t have its top two scorers, JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell. If the bad loss at LSU was any indication over the course of the weekend, the Tide are in a heck of a lot of trouble, especially if the UF guards can get up and running in a hurry. The depth is going to be the difference here for the Gators. They are clearly the better side, even when Alabama is playing totally at full strength, but without two of their top scorers, the Tide are as good as dead.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Florida -5

College Basketball Matchup: Texas A&M Aggies @ Texas Tech Red Raiders
Date: Tuesday, February 14th, 7:00 ET
Location: United Spirit Arena, Lubbock, TX
College Basketball Odds: Texas A&M -4
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

It hasn’t been a fantastic season for either of these teams. What we know we are going to see is plenty of defense and a lot of possessions that take quite a long time to get through. A&M is going to slow it down to a snail’s pace, while T-Tech just doesn’t have the offense to be able to get through this sticky Aggies’ ‘D’. Don’t be all that shocked though, if the Red Raiders are able to pull off the upset in this one. We know that this is the best chance that A&M is going to have all season long to win a true road game, but we have a really hard time laying points with a team that is 0-6 SU away from home this year and has looked so bad in so many games in this situation.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Texas Tech +4
