Lakers vs. Rockets Prediction

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets 4/10/16 NBA Predictions

Did oddsmakers over-inflate the over/under for today's Lakers-Rockets matchup at 3:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Rockets are now 13.5-point home favorites over the Lakers after the number opened at Houston -14. The total has also dropped from 212 down to 211.5.

Bet Today's Lakers vs. Rockets Game

Los Angeles enters play having lost eight of its last 10 and is just 4-6 against the spread during that stretch, while Houston has dropped seven of 10 and is also just 4-6 ATS in those games.

The Lakers aren't scoring. They only racked up 81 points in a 103-81 loss to the Clippers on April 5 and then matched their offensive total in a 91-81 loss to those same Clippers a night later. They did register 102 points in a 110-102 loss to the Pelicans on Friday night, but it's unlikely that they're going to contribute enough to push the combined score over the total today.
