Phoenix Suns vs Toronto Raptors 3/26/2021 Betting Odds
Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns are still the second-best team in the NBA Western Conference standings even with the loss during their last game against the Orlando Magic with the score at 111-112. Devin Booker led the team with 25 points along with seven rebounds and seven assists while Chris Paul had similar numbers of 23 points, seven dimes and six boards. DeAndre Ayton also had a good night posting 21 points, nine rebounds. Jae Crowder had 17 points but what was lacking for this team was the bench production. The Suns would most likely change that when they face the Raptors for their next match.

Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors managed to make a few moves during the trade deadline. They managed to trade Norman Powell to the Portland Trail Blazers and got Gary Trent Jr. in return. This team also attempted to find a good deal for NBA All-Star Kyle Lowry but didn’t find the perfect situation. Fred VanVleet has stepped up for the Raptors this season as the team’s best scoring option while Pascal Siakam has his usual numbers as well. Trent will not be joining the team yet but should be glad to field Lowry with a Raptors jersey for the rest of the season and try to earn a good playoff spot.
Players to Watch: F. VanVleet SG 39 GP 39 GS 36.8 MIN 20.1 PTS 0.6 OR 3.6 DR 4.3 REB 6.4 AST 1.8 STL 0.7 BLK 1.9 TO 2.5 PF 3.3 AST/TO 17.43 PER
