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 Monday and cash in our NBA picks.

76'ers (20-34 SU, 32-21-1 ATS) vs. Hornets (24-30 SU, 22-30-2 ATS)

* Charlotte is 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games following a straight up loss.

* Charlotte is 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Charlotte is 0-6 ATS in their last six games as a favorite.

* Charlotte is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 home games.

* Philadelphia is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up win.

* Philadelphia is 13-4 ATS in their last 17 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Philadelphia is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Philadelphia is 17-6 ATS in their last 23 games as an underdog.

As many of you know the Sixers have been without the services of Joel Embiid (knee) for several games now and will miss him tonight as well. However, Philadelphia is also without another big body in Jahlil Okafor, whom the 76'ers are trying to deal and has not made the trek to Charlotte with a trade looming. Nevertheless, we believe former Kentucky star Nerlens Noel, who dropped 19 on the Heat in his start against the Heat Saturday night, will be up to the task again in relief of Okafor.

Clippers (33-21 SU, 27-27 ATS) vs. Jazz (34-21 SU, 23-30-2 ATS)

* Utah is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss.

* Utah is 2-7 ATS in their last nine after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Utah is 1-5 ATS in their last six home games.

* Utah is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

* LA is 4-1 ATS in their last five Monday games.

* LA is 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.

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

* LA is  7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on one day's rest.

This is the last stop of a five-game road swing for the Clippers and they have found their footing in the last two road contests by not only winning but covering the NBA odds against both the Knicks and Hornets. Of course, the Jazz is a step up in class but the Clips have fared well in Utah over the last few seasons, winning four consecutive games and covering the number in three of those straight-up victories. The oddsmakers are giving the Clips too many points here which is why we will back Los Angeles in our NBA picks tonight.
