Rockets vs. Lakers NBA prediction:
The two teams met two weeks ago on November 19 in Los Angeles. The Lakers led by 6 points and won that game 105-104. did not cover This has been a trend for Los Angeles this season as the Lakers are just 8-12 ATS overall. which is in the bottom third of the NBA this season. Since 2022, Los Angeles is 19-20 ATS as a home favorite and 10-18-1 ATS when playing against other underdogs.
The Rockets have struggled against a lot of recent releases. Houston is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games and they are 9-3-2 ATS in conference games this year. The Rockets have also been profitable on moderate rest, as they are 2-1 ATS this season when playing on 2 or 3 days rest. I like the Rockets to maintain their ATS momentum on Saturday and I believe they will cover that number against the Lakers on the road.
