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 Monday.

Spurs (34-9 SU, 26-16-1 ATS) vs. Nets (9-34 SU, 19-22-2 ATS)

Brooklyn is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up loss.

* Brooklyn is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Brooklyn is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

* Brooklyn is 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games as a home underdog of 11.0 or greater.

* San Antonio is 6-1 ATS in their last seven after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* San Antonio is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite.

* San Antonio is 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

* San Antonio is 6-1 ATS in their last seven games playing on one day's rest.

The Spurs have defeated the Nets by an average of 28 points over their last three meetings. This is a case of the haves versus the have-nots which is why San Antonio is included as one of my NBA picks tonight.

 Rockets (34-13 SU, 29-18 ATS) vs. Bucks (20-23 SU, 18-25 ATS)

* Milwaukee is 0-5 ATS in their last five after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Milwaukee is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Monday games.

* Milwaukee is 1-5 ATS in their last six when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Milwaukee is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games playing on one day's rest.

* Houston is 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

* Houston is 5-2 ATS in their last seven Monday games.

* Houston is 6-1 ATS after three or more consecutive unders.

The Rockets are bona fide road warriors this season, boasting a record of 18-7 ATS on the highway and destroyed the Bucks last week by the score of 111-92. Although the venue has shifted to Milwaukee, that will present no problems for a team that has thrived away from home.

Cavaliers (30-12 SU, 18-22-2 ATS) vs. Pelicans (17-27 SU, 21-22-1 ATS)

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

* New Orleans is 4-0 ATS in their last four Monday games.

* New Orleans is 24-6 ATS in their last 30 games as a home underdog of 5.0-10.5.

* New Orleans is 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games as a home underdog.

* Cleveland is 2-7 ATS in their last nine after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Cleveland is 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS loss.

* Cleveland is 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

* Cleveland is 5-16-2 ATS in their last 23 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.

* Cleveland is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games playing on one day's rest.

The Pelicans have matched up well against the Cavs recently, winning and covering the NBA odds in their last two meetings down on the Bayou. New Orleans has had two days of rest to prepare for King James and his court while the Cavs are a dismal 2-8 ATS this month. Back the home pup here.
