The Detroit Pistons are off to a surprising start through 3 games, but it's going to take a larger sample size before I start to show them serious attention. The Oklahoma City Thunder are on the end of a back to back, but it's fair to say there's a clear difference in talent and depth. The Pistons still have issues offensively, as there's not much past Cade Cunningham in terms of consistency. OKC is simply the better team across the board, and it's at home. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Thunder.
