Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder dropped their last two-games and need a win badly. Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander spearhead the Thunder offensive anew as the team tries to get back on track. OKC averages 110.8 points offensively and limit opponents to 108.5 points per game. The last thing OKC wants is to play relaxed basketball. The Pistons remain dangerous even if they are out of the NBA playoff picture.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The woes continue for the Detroit Pistons with a lot of players in sick bay. The latest name in the sidelines is Derrick Rose who is dealing with an ankle injury. Head coach Dwane Casey will have to dig deep if the Pistons are to pull this one off. Leading the way will be Christian Wood. Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard will provide help for Detroit who is good for 107.7 points offensively. Detroit allows opponents only 110.8 points per contest but face heavy odds against a rolling Thunder five.
