Who the Trends Like: Oklahoma City is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings in Detroit. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Detroit and 7-0 in the last seven meetings overall.
Who We Like: The Pistons not only have a six-game losing streak, but four of them have been at home. Although he might not be the full solution, Detroit desperately needs Jackson back in the lineup. On a sidenote, he always seems to miss games against OKC as he's only played his former team once since he was traded to the Pistons. With the Thunder having blown a double-digit second half lead when the Pistons stunned them 99-98 in Oklahoma City back on Nov. 24, look for some revenge to happen here.
