The Pistons are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Pistons last 7 overall. The over is 7-2 in Thunder last 9 home games. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Oklahoma City and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

The Detroit Pistons don't find themselves in the favorite role often, as this is just the fourth time they've been favored all season. However, the Thunder are a complete mess right now thanks to injuries, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 22.6 points while shooting 41.5 percent from the field. In those three games as a favorite, the Pistons win by an average of 6.3 points. It's hard to get behind the Thunder with any confidence. I'll lay the bucket with the Pistons.
