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 Wednesday’s slate and cash in our NBA picks.

Pacers (31-29 SU, 27-32-1 ATS) vs. Spurs (45-13 SU, 34-23 ATS)
  • San Antonio is 12-4 ATS in their last 16 home games.

  • San Antonio is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a straight up win.

  • San Antonio is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

  • San Antonio is 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5.

  • San Antonio is 5-1 ATS in their last six home games following a road trip of seven or more days.

  • Indiana is 1-4 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Indiana is 1-4 ATS in their last five after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Indiana is 0-4 ATS in their last four games following an ATS win.

The Spurs just completed a successful eight-game road trip in which they won six and have covered the NBA odds in their last three contests. Now they will come home and face a Pacers’ team that is 11-18 ATS on the highway this season. The last time these clubs met at the AT&T Center was in December of ’15 where the Spurs cruised to a 106-92 decision. We anticipate a similar result tonight.

Timberwolves (24-36 SU, 27-33 ATS) vs. Jazz (37-23 SU, 26-32-2 ATS)
  • Utah is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss.

  • Utah is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Utah is 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games.

  • Utah is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.

  • Minnesota is 5-1 ATS in their last six Wednesday games.

  • Minnesota is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600.

  • Minnesota is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games as an underdog.

  • Minnesota is 4-1 ATS in their last five after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

The T-Wolves have won three of their last four and covered the number in all of those games. Now they continue their four-game road swing with a stop in Salt Lake to visit the Jazz. These teams met seven weeks ago where Minnesota was edged 92-94 but covered as a 4 ½ point road dog. We feel the time is right to back this pup in our NBA picks as Utah is coming off a death struggle in which they came up empty against the Thunder 109-106 as 2 ½ point road chalk last night. Oh, and one more thing, Utah is 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero day’s rest.
