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

Pistons (29-32 SU, 29-32 ATS) vs. 76'ers (23-38 SU, 38-22-1 ATS)

* Philadelphia is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Philadelphia is 5-0 ATS in their last five home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400.

* Philadelphia is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS win.

* Philadelphia is 4-0 ATS in their last four games as a home underdog of 5.0-10.5.

* Philadelphia is 5-0 ATS in their last five games playing on zero day's rest.

* Detroit is 0-6 ATS in their last six Saturday games.

* Detroit is 1-4 ATS in their last five road games vs. a team with a losing home record.

* Detroit is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.

The Sixers defeated the Knicks last night by the score of 105-102 and covered the odds as 1 ½ point home dogs. Philadelphia may not be a playoff contender but they have done nothing but make money for those backing them in their NBA picks. The Sixers have covered the number almost 63 percent of the time on the season and at home, that rate of return soars to nearly 75 percent with a 23-8 ATS mark at the Wells Fargo Center. Many will fade the Sixers because they played last night but we know this club is 5-0 ATS over their last five when playing on no rest. Let's grab the points and keep making money with the 76'ers at home.

Clippers (36-25 SU, 30-31 ATS) vs. Bulls (31-30 SU, 31-30 ATS)

* Chicago is  9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog.

* Chicago is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS win.

* Chicago is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

* Chicago is 5-0 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Los Angeles is 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss.

* Los Angeles is 0-4 ATS in their last four after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Los Angeles is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as a road favorite.

* Los Angeles is 0-5 ATS in their last five games playing on zero day's rest.

The Clippers have now failed to cover the number in four straight, including last night's 112-101 road loss to the Bucks, and must now face a surging Bulls team that has won and covered in five of their last six contests. In addition, the road-weary Clippers have not fared well in the second leg of back-to-backs with a 0-5 ATS mark over their last five when playing on no rest. Let's grab the home pup here.

 Free NBA Pick: Bulls +2 Best Line Offered: at JustBet
