This week will see the calendar flip over to February, which means we are one step closer to March Madness.

There are a lot of big games on tap for the coming week, but we have tried to narrow them down to a few that might well be worth for the NCAA Basketball betting enthusiasts. As always, we are going to focus as much as possible on the seeded teams, so let’s check the top College Basketball betting picks of the Week.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (13-8) vs. Duke Blue Devils (18-3)

  • When: Monday, January 29, 7 PM EST
  • TV: ESPN
It was a rough ending to last week for the Blue Devils, going down by a single point to Virginia. That loss has seen Duke fall to the #4 seed, and they have now lost real ground in the ACC standings. 2 of the 3 losses that Duke has taken this season have been at the hands of unranked opponents, so you can bet that they will not be taking the Fighting Irish lightly, even though Notre Dame has struggled in conference play thus far, going just 3-5. I like Duke to roll to a comfortable win on home court.NCAA Basketball Betting Pick: Notre Dame Fighting Irish 64 – Duke Blue Devils 76

North Carolina Tar Heels (16-6) vs. Clemson Tigers (17-4)

  • When: Tuesday, January 30, 7 PM EST
  • TV: ESPN
It’s a clash of the ACC titans on Tuesday night, with the North Carolina Tar Heels going on the road to face the Clemson Tigers. The poor play of late has meant that the stock has fallen a little on both of these teams, with UNC, in particular, coming off a rough week that featured back to back losses.Clemson has been struggling to stay consistent of late, going 3-3 in their last 6. UNC won the previous meeting this season 87-79 on home court, so the Tigers will be out for revenge here. I think we could be in for a battle here, but I like UNC to get back on track with a road win.NCAA Basketball Betting Pick: North Carolina Tar Heels 77 – Clemson Tigers 67

Louisville Cardinals (16-5) vs. Virginia Cavaliers (20-1)

  • When: Wednesday, January 31, 7 PM EST
  • TV: ESPN 2
If you are looking for a team that is going to potentially make a lot of noise in March Madness, then you might want to pay attention to the Virginia Cavaliers. They are on a 12-game winning streak that includes going 9 games unbeaten in conference play.Virginia should come on top against Louisville, no matter what the College Basketball Betting Odds might say.They are coming off a stellar week where they beat a couple of ranked opponents in Clemson and Duke and are now considered to be one of the favorites to win it all. This game on Wednesday night is a potential trip-up game, as this is a very talented Louisville team. I like Virginia to keep the good times rolling in a close one.NCAA Basketball Betting Pick: Louisville Cardinals 64 – Virginia Cavaliers 70

Creighton Bluejays (17-5) vs. Villanova Wildcats (20-1)

  • When: Thursday, February 1, 6:30 PM EST
  • TV: FS1
The Villanova Wildcats are the #1 ranked team in the nation right now, which is hard to argue against. They are in front of the Big East Conference with a 7-1 record but have the Creighton Bluejays breathing right down their neck.The visitors here would love nothing more than a win that would help tighten things up in the conference, but they are seriously up against it here. Surprises have been the order of the day this season, although I’m not so sure we will see one here.NCAA Basketball Betting Pick: Creighton Bluejays 75 – Villanova Wildcats 81
