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 Tuesday's slate and cash in our NBA picks.

Warriors (50-9 SU, 28-29-2 ATS) vs. Wizards (34-23 SU, 32-25 ATS)

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

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

* Washington is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games.

* Washington is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Golden State is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games.

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

* Golden State is 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a straight up win.

* Golden State is 2-7 ATS in their last nine games playing on zero day's rest.

The last time these teams met was in March of last season when the Warriors dribbled to a 102-94 victory but failed to cover the NBA odds as 13 point favorites. Though the Wizards have not played particularly well in their last two games, with losses to Philadelphia and Utah, we see a silver lining with their 24-8 straight up and 20-12 ATS home record. This is the second leg of back-to-back contests for Golden State and their 2-7 ATS mark on zero day's rest also gives us just another reason to back the home dog in our NBA picks tonight.

Trail Blazers (24-34 SU, 23-35 ATS) vs. Pistons (28-31 SU, 28-31 ATS)

* Detroit is 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss.

* Detroit is 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS loss.

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

* Detroit is 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games as a home favorite of 0.5-4.5.

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

* Portland is 1-6 ATS in their last seven after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Portland is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5.

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

The numbers are begging you to bet the Pistons tonight and who are we to disagree? The Blazers have been hot as a snow cone lately and are frankly not a good team. What's even worse is that this club is not just losing but burning money at an alarming rate for all those who dare back them, having failed to cover the number in seven of their last eight games. Conversely, the Pistons have covered in a respectable eight of their last 12 contests. These teams met six weeks ago when the Pistons edged the Trail Blazers 125-124 as 3 ½ point road dogs. This one won't be nearly as close.

Free NBA Pick: Pistons -4 ½ Best Line Offered: at Betmania
