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.

<h2><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/new-york-knicks-vs-milwaukee-bucks-3068687/#matchup"><strong>Knicks (26-38 SU, 34-30 ATS) At Bucks (29-33 SU, 26-36 ATS)</strong></a></h2><ul> <li>Milwaukee is 0-7 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games.</li> <li>Milwaukee is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite.</li> <li>Milwaukee is 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400.</li> <li>Milwaukee is  3-10 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.</li> <li>Milwaukee is 1-8 ATS in their last nine games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5.</li> <li>New York is 4-0 ATS in their last four games as an underdog.</li> <li>New York is 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.</li></ul><p>Although the Knicks do not give me a great sense of security whenever I include them in my <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/">NBA picks</a>, I have to say that they match up well against the Bucks. If we look at their last three meetings, we find that the Knickerbockers have won two and covered the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/">NBA odds </a>in all three. In addition, it appears as though New York will welcome team captain Carmelo Anthony and his 23.2 points per game average back after a one-game absence due to a bothersome knee. That means we will get a well-rested Carmelo and a Knicks team that is playing competitive ball recently.</p><h2 style="text-align:center">NBA Free Pick: Knicks +5</h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=5003&amp;book=Skybook" rel="nofollow">Skybook</a></h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3068687, "sportsbooksIds":[274,19,169,1275,93], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p><h2 style="text-align:center"> </h2><h2><a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/boston-celtics-vs-golden-state-warriors-3068699/#matchup"><strong>Celtics (40-24 SU, 32-30-2 ATS) At Warriors (52-11 SU, 29-32-2 ATS)</strong></a></h2><ul> <li>Golden State is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite.</li> <li>Golden State is 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a straight up win.</li> <li>Golden State is 0-5 ATS in their last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.</li> <li>Golden State is 0-6 ATS in their last six when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.</li> <li>Boston is 9-4-2 ATS in their last 15 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.</li> <li>Boston is 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600.</li> <li>Boston is 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.</li> <li>Boston is 13-6-2 ATS in their last 21 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.</li></ul><p>The last time the Celtics stepped foot in the Oracle Arena, they dribbled out with a 109-106 victory as 11½-point road dogs to end Golden State's NBA-record 54-game home winning streak. While I admit the Green have not impressed over their last pair of games, both straight up and ATS road losses to Phoenix and the LA Clippers, they are still an upper-echelon team and the Warriors have not been blowing teams out with regularity as evidenced by their 29-32-2 ATS record. Furthermore, the Warriors no longer enjoy the services of Kevin Durant, who is out for the remainder of the regular season.</p><h2 style="text-align:center">NBA Free Pick: Celtics +8.5</h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4981&amp;book=Betmania" rel="nofollow">Betmania</a></h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3068699, "sportsbooksIds":[1252,19,274,93,1096], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p>
