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 Friday’s slate and cash in our NBA picks.

Nets (15-56 SU, 33-36-2 ATS) vs. Wizards (43-28 SU, 36-34-1 ATS)
  • Washington is 0-5 ATS in their last five after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Washington is 0-4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games.

  • Washington is 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a favorite of 11.0 or greater.

  • Washington is 0-5 ATS in their last five after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Brooklyn is 4-1 ATS in their last five road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.

  • Brooklyn is 5-1 ATS in their last six when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Brooklyn is 6-1 ATS in their last seven after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Brooklyn is 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.

Those who love underdogs and have targeted Brooklyn in their NBA picks have been cashing in bunches recently. The lowly Nets have been a veritable ATM with eight ATS covers over their last 10 games. Last night they blasted the Suns 126-98 and now look to take the magic right out of the hands of the Wizards in DC. This is the fourth and final meeting between these clubs with Brooklyn covering the NBA odds in two of the previous three contests. Washington is tailspinning for their backers, failing to cash in six consecutive games. Let’s grab the points with the Nets who covered the number in their last four road contests.

Pistons (34-38 SU, 33-39 ATS) vs. Magic (26-46 SU, 29-42-1 ATS)
  • Orlando is 1-5 ATS in their last six after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

  • Orlando 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss.

  • Orlando is 9-24-1 ATS in their last 34 home games.

  • Orlando is 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

  • Detroit is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss.

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

  • Detroit is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite.

  • Detroit is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.

The Pistons are 7-2 ATS over their last nine meetings with the Magic and 3-0 ATS in their last three trips to Orlando. Neither team has been doing their backers any favors at the windows recently but Detroit has a tendency to beat up the weak clubs as evidenced by their 6-2 ATS mark over their last eight against teams with a winning percentage less .400. It appears as though the Pistons will play the role of the road bully once again.
