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

NBA Preview and NBA DFS Picks

Tonight is Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals and it should be an entertaining game. The only thing that can make it more fun is playing Fantasy Basketball matchups on Monkey Knife Fight and winning some extra cash!

Trae Young, with his career-high 48 points and the Atlanta Hawks stole Game 1 from the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Will the Bucks even up the series or will Trae and the Hawks shimmy and shake their way home with a 2-0 lead?

Check out my top Monkey Knife Fight Picks that I am looking to put my money on tonight:



Trae Young LESS THAN 31.5 POINTS

  • Although he went off in Game 1, The Hawks’ guard has scored less than 31.5 points in 7 of the Hawks’ 13 playoff games. If Mike Budenholzer doesn't gameplan to lock Young down, then they're in serious trouble.

  • Young is producing a career 18.9 points per game against the Bucks so they do have the ability to stop him. In the lone regular-season matchup, Young had just 15 points in a 120-109 loss.

  • He averaged 25.3 PPG in the regular season and is averaging 30.5 points this post-season, but on the road, that average comes in at 32.8 points-per-game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo MORE THAN 33.5 POINTS

  • The Greek Freak dropped 34 points in Game 1 and will be heavily counted on to go off after a disappointing Game 1 loss. 

  • Over his last five games, Giannis has scored more than 33.5 points in four of them with an average of 34.2 points.

  • Antetokounmpo has tallied 10 or more field goals in 9 of 13 playoff games. His postseason high for points is 40 and he drained 2 three-pointers.




Clint Capela MORE THAN 13.5 REBOUNDS

  • Capela has grabbed at least 14 boards in two of the last three playoff games, including a monster Game 1 performance with 19.

  • He averaged 14.3 rebounds in the regular season. In two regular-season games versus the Bucks, he dropped 14 and 16 rebounds, respectively. 

  • The Hawks’ big man has totalled more than 13.5 rebounds in 36 of 63 regular-season matchups.

Jrue Holiday MORE THAN 7.5 ASSISTS

  • Holiday has dished out more than 7.5 dimes in 7 of 12 playoff games.

  • The UCLA product had a fabulous Game 1 and recorded 10 assists with 33 points.

  • He has collected at least 10 helpers in three postseason matchups with 15 assists in one of those games.

  • He did average 7.7 assists in three regular-season matchups against Atlanta, but scored more than 7.5 just once (11, 7 and 5) but did have more in each game as the season progressed.
