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 Tuesday evening and cash in our NBA picks.

Knicks (21-28 SU, 28-21 ATS) At Wizards (27-20 SU, 28-19 ATS)
  • Washington is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400.
  • Washington is 0-8 ATS in their last 28 home games.
  • Washington is 7-0 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up win.
  • Washington is 20-7 ATS in their last 27 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5
  • Washington is 17-8 ATS at home this season.
  • New York is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win.
  • New York is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games.

A doff of the cap to those who have been riding the Wizards in their NBA picks because this Washington crew has been positively smoking in  winning and covering the NBA odds in 11 of their last 13 contests. In addition, the Wizards have won and covered in the last four meetings against the Knicks, including two this season. The number may be a bit on the high side, but we cannot ignore the trends going into this one.

Pelicans (19-29 SU, 23-24-1 ATS) At Raptors (29-19 SU, 28-19-1 ATS)
  • Toronto is 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a favorite.
  • Toronto is 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
  • Toronto is 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing on one day’s rest.
  • New Orleans is 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss.
  • New Orleans is 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS loss.
  • New Orleans is 4-0 ATS in their last four Tuesday games.
  • New Orleans is 4-1 ATS in their last five when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Raptors have been floundering recently, losing six of their last seven and covering the point spread in only two of those games. These clubs have not met this season, but the Pelicans have upset two of the very best the league has to offer in Cleveland and San Antonio over the past week. New Orleans is 13-8 ATS against non-conference opponents and should stay competitive in this one against a free-falling Toronto team.

NBA Free Pick: Pelicans +8Best Line Offered: JustBet

Nuggets (21-25 SU, 24-20-2 ATS) At Lakers (16-34 SU, 22-27-1 ATS)
  • Los Angeles is 9-23-1 ATS in their last 33 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
  • Los Angeles is 2-5 ATS in their last seven when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Los Angeles is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog.
  • Los Angeles is 8-19-1 ATS in their last 28 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Denver is 6-1 ATS in their last seven after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Denver is 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a favorite.
  • Denver is 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS win.
  • Denver is 5-0 ATS in their last five after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

No one will ever accuse the Nuggets of being a superior basketball team, but one thing they do well is put the rock in the hole and crash the boards. Their 3rd-ranked offense should be more than enough to overwhelm the lackluster Lakers as evidenced by their last three straight up wins and covers over the dismal crew from LA.

NBA Free Pick: Nuggets -3Best Line Offered: 5Dimes
