How To Bet On Suns Raptors – Raptors Host Suns In Clash Of Struggling Franchises

Posted by Craig Parsons on 11/29/2012 6:32:30 PM

The Phoenix Suns knew that they were going to lose big when two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash left town this past summer. While the Toronto Raptors hoped at the time that the Suns’ loss would be their gain, the Canadian kid ended up in Hollywood and both teams are worse off because of it. The Raptors have lost six-straight heading in to this Friday’s contest against a Phoenix team that hasn’t been much better despite winning three of its last five sports betting contests.

NBA Sportsbook Line: Phoenix Suns – 1.5

Phoenix is once again not expected to contend for a playoff spot this season, with a defense that has struggled for quite some time left that much more exposed by its lack of offense. The Suns have lost six of their eight road games earlier on, so perhaps Toronto does have a chance to end its awful slide.

Phoenix is ranked dead-last in the NBA in points allowed this season, and while it has done a decent job making up for the loss of Nash at the other end, it has nowhere near the level of talent it would need to be a playoff team based on the offense alone. Nash’s replacement Goran Dragic leads the Suns in points, assists, and steals even though he doesn’t have the same flash to his game as a star like Nash, and the lack of a true pure scorer has hurt as well. Phoenix has eight players that have averaged between eight and 16 points per game, but none of them stands out as a true potential superstar.

One of the most incredible things about the Raptors’ season so far isn’t that they have lost games it’s the way they have found ways to lose them even when it looks like they are going to win. Toronto dropped back-to-back games to the Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons by one point each then dropped another key home date to the San Antonio Spurs at home. The Raptors are in a similar boat to the Suns in that their defensive inefficiencies have been exposed by an inability to go shot-for-shot with teams at the offensive end of the floor. There is some solid young talent in place for Toronto’s future, but there are too many concerns so far this season, and they keep on losing close games.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Raptors’ online betting losing streak simply has to come to an end sooner or later, and the Suns certainly won’t scare anyone away from betting on Toronto to snap the skid in this game. The Raptors are due for a win after losing a lot of close games they could and probably should have won, and will come out on top in a battle of two teams with very similar problems.
