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 Sunday's slate and cash in our NBA picks.

Jazz (36-22 SU, 25-31 ATS) vs. Wizards (34-22 SU, 32-24 ATS)

* Washington is 7-1 ATS in their last eight Sunday games.

* Washington is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite.

* Washington is 8-0 ATS in their last eight games as a favorite of 0.5-4.5.

* Washington is 17-5 ATS in their last 22 home games.

* Utah is 5-16 ATS in their last 21 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.

* Utah is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5.

* Utah is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5.

* Utah is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Wizards had been one of the hottest teams in the league, winning 18 of 21 straight up and covering the NBA odds in 15 of those contests, until they laid in egg in Philadelphia on Friday night and came out flat as a board in a 120-112 defeat as nine-point road chalk.

However, they are back on their home court where they have amassed a 24-7 straight up record and a 20-11 ATS mark. The addition of small forward Bojan Bogdanovic at the trade deadline and his 14 points per game average should bolster Washington's scoring attack and we like their chances here against a Utah team that was blown out in their last trip to the Verizon Center by the score of 103-89.

Hornets (25-33 SU, 24-32-2 ATS) vs. Los Angeles (35-23 SU, 30-28 ATS)

* LA is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss.

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

* LA is 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on one day's rest.

* LA is 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

* Charlotte is 0-5-1 ATS in their last six Sunday games.

* Charlotte is 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog.

* Charlotte is 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall.

* Charlotte is 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games playing on zero day's rest.

Charlotte is playing their fourth game of a seven-game road trip, dropping their first two to Toronto and Detroit before beating up the lowly Kings last night 99-85. However tonight they will face their sternest test so far as the Clippers are coming off losses to two of the best in Golden State and San Antonio. The Clips have dominated this series recently winning five straight over the Hornets and covering the number in four of those contests. Look for the Clips to gain some redemption tonight and back LA in your NBA picks.
