NBA : Bucks vs. Cavaliers on Thursday

NBA Odds: Overvalued Cavs Host Bucks
The Cleveland Cavaliers have the best record in the Eastern Conference, but at 8-3 SU and 3-8 ATS, they're also the least profitable team in the East. They'll be coated in chalk once again this Thursday (8:00 PM ET, TNT) when they host the Milwaukee Bucks, who are off to a bumpy start at 5-6 SU and ATS.

The Cavaliers are starting this season without point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) and shooting guard Iman Shumpert (wrist), and while they're a deeper team this year with the arrival of point guard Mo Williams, this still won't be a complete Eastern contender until Irving and Shumpert make their expected returns in December.

Milwaukee has started the year with some key injuries as well, but there's a chance that small forward Jabari Parker (foot) will make his season debut this Thursday. Parker is one of the future cornerstones of the Bucks, who tanked the 2013-14 season in order to draft Parker second overall out of Duke. Center John Henson is also back in action after missing four games with a sore Achilles tendon; Henson (22.8 PER) is one of the NBA's more underrated players, especially now that he's behind Greg Monroe (23.3 PER) on the depth chart.

NBA Odds: Chalky Cavs Take on Replenished Bucks
The Cleveland Cavaliers (8-3 SU, 3-8 ATS) are in first place in the East, but they're also the most unprofitable team in the conference. They'll host the Milwaukee Bucks (5-6 SU and ATS) this Thursday at 8:00 PM ET in the front end of TNT's weekly doubleheader.

Casual fans may be overlooking the absence of point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) and shooting guard Iman Shumpert (wrist) from the defending Eastern champions. Milwaukee, meanwhile, could have small forward Jabari Parker (foot) back in the lineup this Thursday, and underrated center John Henson has returned after missing four games with a sore Achilles.
