Thunder vs. Pistons Prediction
Will the Thunder rebound from their loss to the Magic last night when they visit the Pistons at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Pistons are 3-point home favorites versus the Thunder while the over/under currentlys its at 202.5 points. While the point spread hasn't moved off the number of 3, the total has climbed from 200 up to 202.5.
THUNDER KEY TRENDS: The Thunder lost to the Magic last night, which might be a good thing for their backers. That's because OKC is 8-3 against the spread in its last 11 games following defeat and is 9-4 against the number in its last 13 games following an ATS loss. That said, the Thunder have struggled on the road and against Eastern Conference competition, going 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against non-conference foes.
PISTONS KEY TRENDS: The Pistons have been an excellent home buy over their last 55 games, going 36-17-2 at the betting window in their last 55 games in Auburn Hills. They're also 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 home games versus a team with a winning road record and are a perfect 4-0 against the number in their last four games versus opponents from the Northwest Division.
OUR PREDICTION: This looks like a great spot to grab Detroit at a low number. First and foremost, the Pistons have home court advantage versus a Thunder team that is playing on back-to-back nights and had to travel last night following a home loss. Plus, the Thunder are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games versus the Pistons, who are a perfect 4-0 at the betting window this season as a home favorite (winning by an average margin of 17.8 and covering by an average margin of 12.8). If you look around the NBA tonight, you might not find a better value than the Pistons as a slight home favorite.
