By the Numbers is a daily NBA column featuring Swinger’s top selections according to historical trends and game-time matchups. Let’s review the top picks for Tuesday.

 

Thunder (37-29 SU, 36-29-1 ATS) At Nets (12-53 SU, 29-34-2 ATS)

  • Brooklyn is 4-0 ATS in their last four after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Brooklyn is 15-6-1 ATS in their last 22 Tuesday games.
  • Brooklyn is 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games following a straight up win.
  • Brooklyn is 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on one day's rest.
  • Oklahoma City is 1-4 ATS in their last five after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Oklahoma City is 0-4 ATS in their last four games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
  • Oklahoma City is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of less than .400.
  • Oklahoma City is 0-4 ATS in their last four road games.

The Nets are playing better now than at any point of the season. I know that's not saying much, but consider that they have covered the number in four straight and six of their last eight. In addition, Brooklyn is 4-1 ATS vs. OKC over their last five meetings and actually straight-up beat the pants off the Thunder 116-106 as 13½-point home dogs the last time these two teams squared up in Brooklyn. Grab the points with the home pup here.

Free NBA Pick: Nets +6

76ers (24-42 SU, 41-24-1 ATS) At Warriors (52-14 SU, 29-35-2 ATS)

  • Golden State is 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a straight up loss.
  • Golden State is 1-5 ATS in their last six after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Golden State is 1-8 ATS in their last nine games as a favorite.
  • Golden State is 0-8 ATS in their last eight when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Philadelphia is 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games.
  • Philadelphia is 5-1 ATS in their last six road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.
  • Philadelphia is -0 ATS in their last six games as an underdog of 11.0 or greater.
  • Philadelphia is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

The Sixers have covered the NBA odds in four of their last five contests vs. the Warriors and here we are again. The public is a virtual lock to swarm the favorite, even at the inflated price of -16½ , because they are still convinced this Golden State club is the same dominating entity as it was last season even without Kevin Durant. It is not and let's also not forget this is a team that has not delivered in anyone's NBA picks in eight of their last nine contests! Conversely, Philadelphia is hanging tough and making money for its backers with a stellar 41-24 ATS record on the season.

Free NBA Pick: 76ers +16.5
