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.

<h2><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/atlanta-hawks-vs-philadelphia-76ers-3067891/#matchup"><strong>Hawks (38-36 SU, 33-41 ATS) At 76ers (28-46 SU, 47-26-1 ATS)</strong></a></h2><ul> <li>Philadelphia is 25-9 ATS in their last 34 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 15-2 ATS in their last 17 home games.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as a home underdog of 0.5-4.5.</li> <li>Philadelphia is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days’ rest.</li> <li>Atlanta is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games.</li> <li>Atlanta is 0-6 ATS in their last six games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400.</li> <li>Atlanta is -10 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.</li> <li>Atlanta is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.</li></ul><p>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 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/">NBA picks</a> 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.</p><h2 style="text-align:center">Free NBA Pick: 76ers +1½</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":3067891, "sportsbooksIds":[274,19,169,1275,93], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p><p> </p><h2><a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/washington-wizards-vs-la-clippers-3067907/#matchup"><strong>Wizards (46-28 SU, 39-34-1 ATS) At Clippers (44-31 SU, 36-39)</strong></a></h2><ul> <li>LA Clippers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.</li> <li>LA Clippers are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games as a favorite of 5.0-10.5.</li> <li>LA Clippers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.</li> <li>LA Clippers are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games vs. a team with a non-winning road record.</li> <li>Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.</li> <li>Washington is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.</li> <li>Washington is 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 games following an ATS win.</li> <li>Washington is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on zero days’ rest.</li></ul><p>The Wizards have won four straight and covered the<a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/"> NBA odds</a> 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.
