The Pistons are 9-0 ATS in their last 9 road games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Thunder are 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Pistons last 6 overall. The over is 15-5-1 in Thunder last 21 overall. The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

There's some concern about a letdown with the Detroit Pistons, as they're a young team that got a big upset win last night over the 76ers. It's easy for the Pistons to come out sluggish here. However, the Oklahoma City Thunder aren't a team I want to back unless I'm getting a decent sized number, as they even lose at home by an average of 7.3 points. This line feels a bit soft if we're being honest. I'll take my chances with the Pistons here.
