These two met on November 2nd in Phoenix, a game where Raps Kawhi Leonard and Isaiah Canaan had 19 points to lead all scorers. Kyle Lowry had a great game for Toronto as well, playing a productive 32 minutes that saw him score 11 points, pulled down 6 boards, had 2 steals with double the assists of anyone else on the court that night with 12.
At the time, the Raptors win put them at 8-1, on their way to a 12-1 start to the season. They are currently tied with the Bucks for top spot in the East while the Suns are dead last in the ultra-competitive West, sitting 20 games back of the Warriors.
The Suns are 2-8 in their last 10, which included a 6-game losing streak before they alternated wins and losses in their last 4. One of those wins was a big 102-93 win against the front-running Nuggets.
Although the Suns are among the worst in the league this season, they have done well against the Raptors in the past. The Suns are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 against the Raptors and 17-8 SU in the last 25 times these two have played.
The line is moving quickly with the new that Leonard and Lowry will be rested for this one, so jump on it now before the line moves too far out of our favor to consider this a value bet.

I hit the second part of a double down on Bryson DeChambeau to beat Wyndham Clark last week in their 4th round matchup at the 3M Open. If it weren’t for a miraculous eagle putt on 18 by Matthew Wolff, we would have hit the double down, and a huge payday at +1150 plus the Read More…
