    1) to cast doubt on something to someone: You're casting doubts on Michael's story to me.

    2) to cast doubt to someone on something: You're casting doubts to me on Michael's story.

    Default Re: doubts

    Neither sounds right to me. These work:

    You're casting doubts on Michael's story to me.
    You are making me doubt Michael's story.
    You are giving me doubts about Michael's story.
