By the Numbers is a daily column featuring Swinger’s top selections according to historical trends and game time matchups. Let’s review the top picks for Saturday’s slate and cash in our NBA picks.

Wizards (42-26 SU, 36-31-1 ATS) vs. Hornets (29-39 SU, 28-37-3 ATS)

* Charlotte is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 Saturday games.

* Charlotte is 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games following an ATS loss.

* Charlotte is 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite.

* Charlotte is  2-8 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite.

* Washington is 5-0 ATS in their last five Saturday games.

* Washington is 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5.

* Washington is  8-0 ATS in their last eight road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

* Washington is 5-0 ATS in their last five games playing on zero day's rest.

The oddsmakers have the Charlotte Hornets favored in this one and my only question is - why? Perhaps the uncertain status of Washington's 6'10" power forward Markieff Morris (illness) has something to do with it but even then, it makes no sense to me. Those who will fade the Wizards in their NBA picks because they are playing on the second night of back-to-back games do so at their own peril. Washington is 5-0 ATS when playing on zero day's rest and has had recent success against Charlotte, winning and covering in their last three meetings with the Hornets.

Bucks (34-34 SU, 30-38 ATS) vs. Warriors (54-14 SU, 30-36-2 ATS)

* Golden State is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.

* Golden State is 1-4 ATS in their last five home games

* Golden State is 1-8 ATS in their last nine when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Golden State is 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a favorite of 11.0 or greater.

* Milwaukee is 4-0 ATS in their last four Saturday games.

* Milwaukee is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games as an underdog of 11.0 or greater.

* Milwaukee is 7-1 ATS in their last eight when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Milwaukee is 5-0 ATS in their last five games playing on zero day's rest.

The Bucks have covered the number in six of their last eight contests while the Warriors have cashed in just two of their last 10. Milwaukee is 4-1 ATS against Golden State over their last five matchups, including their only meeting this season in which the Warriors held on for a 124-121 win as nine-point road chalk back in November. Let's watch the Bucks hang tough again tonight!
