The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Suns are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Raptors are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Suns are unbackable without their top two players and now have coaching issues. The Raptors will also be eager to bounce back from a brutal Monday loss to the Nuggets. I like the Raptors by double digits.
