Lakers vs. Rockets Prediction:
The Lakers have three rotation players questionable and another two in Gabe Vincent and Jared Vanderbilt out injured. These are the types of games young teams can pounce on. A fourth game in a row at home for Houston, expect them to be comfortable and ready. If Houston makes it an up and down game a big lead will happen at some point. Expect them to cover.
NBA Betting Prediction: HOUSTON ROCKETS +4.5
