According to oddsmakers from oddsmakers at RealBets, Houston is favored on the road, as the Rockets are getting odds of -6 points against the Lakers. The over/under total for the game has been set at 213.5 points.

Los Angeles is 4-21 on the season, 2-6 at home and 9-16 against the spread. Houston is 12-14 overall, 5-7 on the road and 9-17 against the spread. Houston has won and covered the spread in six of the last seven in this series, but the Rockets have lost two straight while the Lakers have covered in their last two home games.

Dwight Howard wants to be trade as the dysfunction continues in Houston. Since he's talked about being dealt, the Rockets have lost to Sacramento and Denver on the road. The Lakers beat Milwaukee on Tuesday and should have some momentum to carry over for this game.
