Welcome to the NBA DFS 12-30-20 DraftKings Value Picks article!
We've got a six-game slate with some great opportunities to earn some money and some great pairing to help earn that money.
NBA DFS 12-30-20 DraftKings Value Picks
Hawks @ Nets (-6.5) - 240 over/under
Lakers (-6) @ Spurs - 228
Bucks (-6) @ Heat - 227.5 o/u
Blazers @ Clippers (-4) - 225.5 o/u
Hornets @ Mavs (-7.5) - 224.5 o/u
Grizzlies @ Celtics (-5) - 216.5 o/u
Devonte' Graham, Charlotte Hornets $6,600
Graham has been an assist machine in the Hornets' first few games of the season; he had 10 assists in two games out of his previous three games.
He has attempted seven or more three-pointers in each game but hasn't been consistently making them like he did last year. But, Graham will have to step up his three-point shooting against the Mavericks if they want to stay competitive. It helps that Dallas is allowing point guards to shoot 41 percent from three-point range, so Graham has the chance to get out of his funk.
Dillon Brooks, Memphis Grizzlies $6,200

Ja Morant is dealing with an ankle injury and could be out of tonight's game, which means the Memphis guards will have to fill in the scoring gap left behind with Morant being out.
Brooks is the prime candidate to be the scoring replacement for Morant. He scored 24 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and dished out four assists in the Grizzlies last game when Morant was injured.
The stars are aligned for Brooks to be the Grizzlies' top scorer against the Celtics.
DeMar DeRozan, San Antonio Spurs $6,900
DeRozan is a triple-double waiting to happen. He is averaging 21 points, nine assists, and 5.7 rebounds so far this season.
Against LeBron James, DeRozan averages 21.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists.
Against Anthony Davis, DeRozan averages 22.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists.
John Collins, Atlanta Hawks $7,100

Collins is one of my favorite targets in Fantasy Basketball, ride or die baby. So, any chance I can suggest him as a value option, I'm pulling that trigger.
He could walk away with a double-double in his pocket almost every night, and he is Trae Young's first look in the Hawks' offense.
Collins should have a fantastic night since he'll match up against Taurean Prince. Collins averages 20.5 points, nine rebounds, and 2.5 assists when facing Prince.
Serge Ibaka, Los Angeles Clippers $5,400
Ibaka is one of the most solid centers in the league and is always undervalued. Right now, he is averaging 14.3 points, 5.7 assists, and one assist this season.
Tonight, he has a matchup against a Portland defense that struggles to stop centers in the paint. The Trail Blazers allow 22.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game to centers this season, according to FantasyPros DvP.
As I previously mentioned, the Clippers are a slow pace offensive team because they look for easy points rather than rely on three-point shooting and Ibaka is their primary option in the post if George and Leonard can't force it to the basket themselves.
