Monkey Knife Fight Picks: More or Less NBA DFS Picks for Tuesday

NBA Preview and NBA DFS Picks

There’s one game on the NBA playoff slate tonight and it's a good one that features a great Fantasy Basketball match-up with two MVPs that you can play on Monkey Knife Fight!

The Milwaukee Bucks successfully defended their home court and now look to take that momentum and win a 3rd straight against the injury-ridden Brooklyn Nets to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

Here are my best Monkey Knife Fight picks for this Eastern Conference tilt and hopefully we win some cash!



Giannis Antetokounmpo LESS THAN 13.5 REBOUNDS

  • The Greek Freak averaged 11.0 rebounds in the regular season and has recorded less than 13.5 rebounds in 3 of 4 playoff tilts against the Nets with an average of 12 rebounds per game.

  • In three regular-season games against the Nets, Giannis went under 13.5 rebounds in each game (12 rebounds, 8 and 12).

  • The two-time MVP tallied 13 or less boards in 46 of 61 contests this season.

Kevin Durant MORE THAN 34.5 POINTS

  • The Nets are without Kyrie Irving, so Durant will be taking the majority of the shots with James Harden coming off an injury.

  • He dropped 34 points in Game 4 and he cashed five free throws, so he should be hovering around this line with no Kyrie and Harden banged up. 

  • The Slim Reaper has contributed at least 10 field goals in five of the Nets’ eight playoff games.

  • During the regular-season, KD went above 34.5 points in one of three games, but that was with more support on the court in Irving and a healthy Harden.


More or Less


Khris Middleton MORE THAN 22.5 POINTS

  • He scored 35 points and recorded eight free throws in Game 3 despite dropping 19 last game.

  • The Bucks’ swingman scored more than 22.5 points in 27 regular-season matchups. In all three regular-season outings, he scored above 22.5 points against Brooklyn (23 points, 26 and 25).

  • Middleton has tallied at least 3 three-pointers in three straight games.


  • Brown was held to one rebound in Game 4.

  • He has collected less than 7.5 boards in six of the Nets’ eight playoff contests and three of the four games against the Bucks, despite having 11 in Game 3. 

  • Brown averaged 5.4 rebounds in the regular season and went under 7.5 rebounds in all three regular-season games (5 rebounds, 1 and 6).
