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.

Hawks (38-36 SU, 33-41 ATS) At 76ers (28-46 SU, 47-26-1 ATS)
  • Philadelphia is 25-9 ATS in their last 34 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Philadelphia is 15-2 ATS in their last 17 home games.
  • Philadelphia is 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as a home underdog of 0.5-4.5.
  • Philadelphia is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days’ rest.
  • Atlanta is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games.
  • Atlanta is 0-6 ATS in their last six games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400.
  • Atlanta is -10 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.
  • Atlanta is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Sixers may own an underwhelming record this season, but since Dec. 30 this team has delivered mightily for all those backing them in their NBA picks with a stellar 74.4 percent cover rate. They did it again Tuesday night with a 106-101 road win over Brooklyn as 4½-point road dogs. And don’t fret that they are playing the second leg of back-to-back games as they are 7-1 ATS over their last eight when playing in such a scenario. Their opponent tonight is also playing with no rest as the Hawks snapped their seven-game losing streak and defeated the Suns 95-91 but failed to cover the 9½-point impost.Take the small number with the home dog here.

Wizards (46-28 SU, 39-34-1 ATS) At Clippers (44-31 SU, 36-39)
  • LA Clippers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.
  • LA Clippers are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.
  • LA Clippers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • LA Clippers are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games vs. a team with a non-winning road record.
  • Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.
  • Washington is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.
  • Washington is 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 games following an ATS win.
  • Washington is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on zero days’ rest.

The Wizards have won four straight and covered the NBA odds in three of those victories, including their 119-108 thrashing of the Lakers in LA last night. The other good news is that Washington is 6-1 ATS in the second leg of back-to-back games, and the Wiz didn’t even have to get in a plane to play this road contest as both the Lakers and Clippers share space at the Staples Center. The Clips, meanwhile, are coming off a poor performance in their 98-97 loss Sunday to the Kings as 12½-point home chalk. Grab the points.
