The Toronto Raptors play host to the Phoenix Suns tonight at the Air Canada Center.
The Raptors have really been playing well lately, winning their last four including a thrilling 84-82 win over the Wizards last night. Kyle Lowry led hte scoring with 27 points while DeMar DeRozan added 20 points, but with the game on the line, the ball went to Cory Joseph who knocked down the three at the buzzer to win the game for the Raptors who improve to 11-6 on the season and 7-5 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Suns have lost five of their last six games and their last four straight after falling to the Warriors in a 135-116 rout on Friday. Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight both scored 21 points each while TJ Warren shot 12 of 16 for his 28 points, but it was never going to be enough against a Warriors team that poured in 44 points in the first quarter. The Suns could do little to slow down the Warriors who shot 56.8 percent from the field and 22 of 38 from the three-point line. With the loss, Phoenix drops to 7-9 on the season and 5-5 at home.
In ATS trends, the Suns are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team above .600 and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall, while the Raptors are 6-0 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last four home games.
Head to head, the Suns are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall and 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Toronto.
I know the Raptors played just last night but there are never tired legs coming off a buzzer-beater win, so I'm taking the red-hot Raptors to win and cover against the struggling Suns.
