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 Sunday and cash in our NBA picks.

Spurs (41-12 SU, 31-21-1 ATS) vs. Knicks (22-33 SU, 29-26 ATS)

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

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

* New York is 0-5 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

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

* San Antonio is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

* San Antonio is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.

* San Antonio is 17-7 ATS in their last 24 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

* San Antonio is 19-9 ATS in their last 28 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Knicks have lost and failed to cover the NBA odds in six of their last seven games while the Spurs have won five of their last six and covered the number as 4 ½ point road chalk against the Pistons Friday night in a 103-92 decision. The last time these clubs met at MSG the Spurs cashed as 7 ½ point visiting favorites in a 94-84 San Antonio victory back in November of '15. In addition, the Knicks will be without the services of their leading rebounder in Joakim Noah for the fourth consecutive game.

 Pistons (25-29 SU, 25-29 ATS) vs. Raptors (32-22 SU, 31-22-1 ATS)

* Toronto is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.

* Toronto is 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

* Toronto is 1-3 ATS in their last four meetings versus the Pistons.

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

* Detroit is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games.

* Detroit is 5-1 ATS in their last six games playing on one day's rest.

* Detroit is 4-1 ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.

The Pistons may not be turning many heads but they are proving to be a solid play for those who have recently seen an uptick in their play and have backed them in their NBA picks over the last seven contests. Detroit has covered in five of those games and should be able to stay close in what should be an up-tempo game. Speaking of which, the Pistons are 7-1 ATS over their last eight in games where the total is equal to or greater than 210 as it is in today's matchup.
