The Toronto Raptors have breezed through the competition so far in 2022, as they have yet to lose a game in the new year. While Fred VanVleet has been playing at an All-Star level to start the season, the latest Raptors odds are suggesting that they will finally taste defeat.
Toronto will welcome Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and the reigning Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns to Canada. The Suns proved that last year was no fluke, as they are tied with Golden State for possession of the best record in the league at 30-9. Given their star power, it’s easy to see why.
While the Raptors have been a bit lucky in that they have avoided some star players lately, the trio of Paul, Booker, and Deandre Ayton all look ready to suit up. This presents a major challenge for a Toronto team that has won six straight.
Will Nick Nurse and his team defy the odds and take home their seventh consecutive win? Are the Suns going to finally hand the Raptors a loss in 2022?
Phoenix Suns vs Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under
The latest odds from WynnBET have Phoenix as -4.0 favorites against the spread, with this squad -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Phoenix is -190 on the moneyline, while Toronto checks at +155 (bet $100 to win $155).
The over-under in this contest is 224, with the under coming in at -110 and the over listed at -110. Most of the big offensive names should be active in this game, and Toronto’s inconsistent defense could help the over cash.

Toronto Raptors vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
This could be a more even game than the records suggest, as Toronto will be buoyed by the performance of stars like VanVleet and Pascal Siakam. Unfortunately, they may not have the horses to run with Phoenix for 48 minutes on the perimeter and in the paint.
Booker is an automatic 20 points a night, Paul is going to bring his usual turnover-free brand of basketball to the part, and Ayton could feast in the paint. The Raptors will need to start hot and maintain that mojo for long stretches to take down the Suns.
Suns 115, Raptors 112
