Suns vs. Raptors Prediction & Pick

The Suns are starting to find their groove with veteran point guard Chris Paul guiding the offense once again. The 12-time All-star is averaging 22.3 points, 10.8 assists and 6.0 rebounds in the four games he has played since returning from his hip injury. He has brought a spark to Phoenix's offense.

That does not bode well for the Raptors on Monday as they allow an opponent shooting percentage of 49.3% in road games this season (No. 26 in NBA). The Suns should be able to score early here and pull away from a Toronto offense that shoots only 45.4% during away showdowns (No. 24 in NBA).

Phoenix has also won 12 of its last 18 games against an Atlantic Division foe, so give me the Suns here.

Final Score Prediction: Suns: 114 | Raptors: 109

Suns vs. Raptors Best Bet

As mentioned above, Phoenix heads into Monday night on a hot streak. The Suns are a reliable 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five games at the Footprint Center. They are also 14-5 ATS in their last 19 head-to-head matchups against the Raptors.

Toronto's greatest strength is taking care of the basketball, but Phoenix forces 14.9 turnovers per game (No. 12 in NBA) and features some of the best on-ball defenders in the NBA. Mikal Bridges is a first-team All-Defense player and is going to wreak havoc on the Raptors' inconsistent backcourt.

Bet: Phoenix Suns -1.5 (-112)
