Tonight’s Top Monkey Knife Fight MLB Player Prop Picks
Mets vs. Braves ‘Rapidfire’ Contest (3x Buy-In)
This Monkey Knife Fight MLB contest looks at two head-to-head matchups for total fantasy points. Four of the biggest stars in this Mets – Braves showdown are involved. Users are advised to note the differences in Monkey Knife Fight MLB fantasy picks scoring compared to other platforms they might be familiar with.
The first leg sees Ronald Acuna Jr. laying 0.5 fantasy points to Pete Alonso. Both players have been swinging the bat well lately. Alonso went hitless in yesterday’s series opener but had totaled five hits over the preceding two days. Meanwhile, Acuna has four hits and a home run over the last four games. Neither batter has promising history against the respective starting pitchers in this matchup. That said, one has to like Acuna’s chances against David Peterson a whole lot more than Alonso’s going up against an arm like Max Fried. The Awesemo MLB DFS projections rate Acuna second among all batters on Wednesday’s slate. Although Monkey Knife Fight scoring is different than other DFS platforms, Acuna seems to be the way to go.

In the second half of this contest, a pair of Braves are matched up head-to-head. Reigning MVP Freddie Freeman is a 0.5-fantasy-point favorite against Ozzie Albies. Freeman has been the hotter hitter of late. He has totaled 10 hits over the last six games and notched one in yesterday’s series-opener. Albies matched Freeman with one hit yesterday. However, the fact that it was a home run earned him a lot more fantasy points. Once again, neither has had great success in the past against Mets’ southpaw David Peterson. Albies’ ability to switch-hit could very well prove to be the difference maker in this Monkey Knife Fight MLB contest. He will have the better angle against the left-handed Peterson. Look to take Albies plus the points in this matchup.

Among those outings was a seven-strikeout performance over five innings against the Twins back in early May. As a team, Minnesota averaged 8.6 strikeouts per game. While this ranks fairly well compared to the majority of the league, Cease generates a large number of his outs via strikeout. Look to the over for Cease.
