By the Numbers is a daily NBA column featuring three top selections according to historical trends and game time matchups. Let’s review the top picks for Sunday and cash in our NBA picks.

Lakers (16-31 SU, 20-26-1 ATS) vs. Mavericks (14-29 SU, 21-22 ATS)

* Dallas is 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up loss.

* Dallas is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Sunday games.

* Dallas is 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite.

* Dallas is 5-1 ATS in their last six when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Dallas is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5.

* LA is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.

* LA is 8-22-1 ATS in their last 31 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

* LA is 1-4 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* LA is 0-5 ATS in their last five games as a road underdog.

The Mavericks have soundly defeated the Lakers twice this season, both in Los Angeles, and now the venue shifts to Dallas. The Lakers snapped a five-game losing streak against the struggling Pacers on Friday night but now embark on a three-game road trip starting tonight. The Mavs will win their third consecutive meeting against the lakers and once again cover the NBA odds as they have in four of their last five outings.

Suns (14-29 SU, 22-20-1 ATS) vs. Raptors (28-15 SU, 26-16-1 ATS)

Toronto is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss.

* Toronto is 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Toronto is 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a favorite.

* Toronto is 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a home favorite of 11.0 or greater.

* Toronto is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

* Phoenix is 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.

* Phoenix is 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a road underdog of 11.0 or greater.

* Phoenix is 15-36 ATS in their last 51 games following an ATS win.

The Raptors were humiliated in their last appearance courtesy of their most lackluster effort of the season in their 113-78 loss to the Hornets on Friday night. After a 1-2 road trip they return home tonight to face a Suns team that played last night and scored a mild upset of the Knicks in New York in their 107-105 victory. The Suns will get a determined Raptors squad that has had major success at home this season (15-6 SU, 14-7 ATS). Let's back the home chalk in our NBA picks here and watch the dinos get back on track.

They have won and covered the number in four of those five contests and are steamrolling into Minnesota. Denver has won and covered in their last three trips to Minnesota and tonight should be no different.
