On Wednesday, 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 Wednesday!

College Basketball Matchup: Missouri Tigers @ Oklahoma State Cowboys
Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 7:30 ET
Location: Gallagher Iba Arena, Stillwater, OK
College Basketball Odds: Missouri -8.5
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

Many recognize that Missouri is a tremendous team this year, but there has to be a real question as to whether it is really good enough to be considered the No. 2 team in the nation. Asking to lay double digits on the road in the Big XII is generally death, but in this case, we just don’t trust the Cowboys. Okie State is clearly one of the two worst teams in this conference along with Texas Tech, and the rest of the field is just head and shoulders ahead of it.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Missouri -8.5

College Basketball Matchup: Duke Blue Devils @ Maryland Terrapins
Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 9:00 ET
Location: Comcast Center, College Park, MD
College Basketball Odds: Duke -11
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Poor Maryland. The team had to take on Florida State right after it beat North Carolina, so the team was on a tremendous high, and now, it has to take on Duke right after losing to that same FSU team. The Terrapins can take over a game with Terrell Stoglin though, and he is going to be the most prolific scorer on the court. The Terps have had a good history of playing with the Dookies, and we tend to think that they are going to get the job done in this one and stick within double digits, though we just don’t see Duke losing two straight games SU at this point.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Maryland +11

College Basketball Matchup: Villanova Wildcats @ Louisville Cardinals
Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 7:00 ET
Location: KFC Yum! Arena, Louisville, KY
College Basketball Odds: Louisville -8
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

We must apologize to Villanova in this one. The team has all of the talent in the world, but perhaps it is time for Head Coach Jay Wright to go. The Wildcats aren’t all that special, though they have won two in a row, and we think that they will fall right back towards the bottom of the conference when they take on a Louisville team that is badly trying to get back on track in conference play.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Louisville -8
