Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets CashBet Wagering Analysis

These are two teams that are having a tough season and even with the Los Angeles Lakers struggling to find wins, they have enough firepower to overcome the lowly Houston Rockets in this matchup.

Lakers Still Looking for that Momentum

LeBron James gave the Los Angeles Lakers fans a glimmer of hope on their disappointment for this season with a 56-point performance over the Golden State Warriors. In effect, James did not play their next game against the San Antonio Spurs and the team had to rely on the struggling Russell Westbrook to lead. That match resulted in a loss with the Lakers still nine games behind a winning record. It seems that the Lakers are still waiting for that spark but as the days go by, the possibility has become more unlikely. James is still questionable to play but do expect him to suit up.

Rockets Positioning for the Upcoming Draft Lottery

The Houston Rockets were not really expecting to be in the same situation from last year. Jalen Green came in the city with the hopes of improving their standing but that may not happen as the Rockets will be looking for another piece through the NBA draft lottery. Green has been playing well for the past games but even with that, the Rockets are still struggling to pick up some victories. There is still too much drama happening inside the Rockets’ locker room including players disputing the coach and vice-versa. There are a lot of things to tweak and the Rockets should be busy moving pieces aside from picking high in the draft. Green will also have to learn to trust his teammates more moving forward.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets Head-to-Head with Spread

The Los Angeles Lakers have Russell Westbrook and that is still an edge over the much more disorganized Houston Rockets. Both teams may go under the total in the NBA betting spreads with the ATS should be covered as well.
