Utah Jazz Player

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 4:04 PM GMT

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 Wednesday evening and cash in our NBA picks.

Cavaliers (35-15 SU, 22-26-2 ATS) vs. Pacers (29-22 SU, 23-27-1 ATS)

* Indiana is 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a home underdog.

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

* Indiana is 4-0-1 ATS in their last five when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Indiana is 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

* Cleveland is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite of 0.5-4.5.

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

* Cleveland is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.

* Cleveland is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Pacers are on a tear, having won seven straight and covering the NBA odds in six of those contests, while the Cavs had to rely on a three-point prayer by LeBron James at the buzzer to send Monday night's game into overtime where the Cavs ultimately notched a 140-135 overtime win in Washington. In addition, the Pacers have been an ATM for all who have backed them in their NBA picks when meeting the Cavs on their own court, covering the number a staggering eight of their last nine games against the Cavaliers when playing in Indiana.

Wizards (30-21 SU, 30-21 ATS) vs. Nets (9-43 SU, 21-29-1 ATS)

* Brooklyn is 1-3-1 ATS in their last five after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Brooklyn is 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.

* Brooklyn is 1-11 ATS in their last 12 home games.

* Brooklyn is 6-17-3 ATS in their last 26 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Washington is  7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a straight up loss.

* Washington is 21-6 ATS in their last 27 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Washington is 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.

* Washington is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

Although it is true that the Wizards have been woeful on the highway this season with an 8-14 straight up road record, their 11-11 ATS record is at least respectable. The Wizards are simply a far better team than Brooklyn (who isn't?) and are catching the Nets on zero days rest where Brooklyn is 3-10-1 this season in the second of back-to-back contests.

Free NBA Pick: Wizards -10 Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

Jazz (33-19 SU, 22-28-2 ATS) vs. Pelicans (20-32 SU, 24-27-1)

* New Orleans is 1-4 ATS in their last five after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

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

* New Orleans is 1-4 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Jazz destroyed the Pelicans 106-94 the last time they visited the Bayou just over a year ago and Utah is 3-1 ATS over their last four trips to Nawlins'. The Pelicans have dropped four of their last five and we look for that streak to continue tonight.
