Raps and Suns Have Been OVER Machines

Coming off their worst beating of the season, the 28-15 Raptors will look to get back in the saddle against the 14-29 Phoenix Suns in a late afternoon matchup at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The Raps were upset as 8.5-point favorites in their first meeting against the Suns this season and things have looked out of sorts for the Dino’s ever since their loss to the 76ers earlier this week.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Raptor’s last 16 games at home.
  • The Raptors are 15-6 at home this season.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Suns’ last 6 games.

What do you get when you combine the league’s second-worst scoring defense and the league’s third-best scoring offense? Lots of points probably. Bookmakers opened this game with a total of 222 and the with Raptors likely trying to jump start their offense after an ugly 78-point performance on Friday – I like the OVER here.

Both teams have been OVER machines this season and when you consider we’ve seen a few totals reach 130 and higher before closing in the last week, you may want to hop on this wager before it loses its luster.
