The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Thursday, Nov. 17 with another slate of games, including a Myrtle Beach Invitational matchup between the Murray State Racers and No. 24 Texas A&M Aggies.
Murray State picked up its first win of the season Saturday with a 90-53 victory against Lindsey Wilson College. Meanwhile, Texas A&M's undefeated campaign continued with a 77-58 win against Abilene Christian just one day before that.
Can Murray State pull off the huge Myrtle Beach Invitational upset? Or will Texas A&M stay right on track with its third straight win to begin the year?

Murray State vs Texas A&M Prediction & Pick
There isn't much of a reason to doubt Texas A&M heading into this matchup. The Aggies made a name for themselves last season by having one of the better defenses and that's continued this season, holding opponents to 56.0 PPG (T-No. 26) thus far.
While Murray State did score 90 points in its last game, it came against Lindsey Wilson College — a Mid-South opponent. Texas A&M will pose a much harder test, especially with the Racers losing each of their last eight games against the SEC.
Look for Texas A&M to continue its perfect start with a lopsided victory.
Final Score Prediction: Texas A&M: 87 | Murray State: 72

Murray State vs Texas A&M Best Bet
Even though being a 12.5-point favorite brings pressure, Texas A&M can handle it. The Aggies are 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games, whereas the Races are 0-5 ATS in their last five. With Murray State also dropping eight straight games to the SEC, I see Texas A&M covering the spread without an issue.
