Today’s Top Monkey Knife Fight MLB Player Prop Picks 

Tigers vs. Rangers ‘Rapidfire’ Contest (3x Buy-In)

Monkey Knife Fight MLB fantasy baseball picks rankings expert las vegas betting odds predictions props Rangers Tigers Joey Gallo Jonathan Schoop Adolis Garcia Major League Baseball

In the first head-to-head matchup of this contest, Joey Gallo is laying half a fantasy point to Jonathan Schoop. Gallo entered the weekend riding a hot streak but failed to register a hit in either of the two games he played. Meanwhile, Schoop has notched four multi-hit games during his ongoing five-game hitting streak. He has 12 total knocks in his last nine starts. While one might consider power to be a big advantage for Gallo in this matchup, he only has four more home runs than Schoop on the season. Schoop also holds a narrow lead in RBIs. The Awesemo MLB DFS projections favor Gallo by about 0.8 fantasy points in this matchup. Once adjusted for Monkey Knife Fight MLB scoring, however, Schoop plus a half point stands out as the best option.

The second matchup in this Monkey Knife Fight MLB contest features a pair of Rangers teammates. Both players have been swinging a hot bat coming into tonight’s game. After a multi-hit effort yesterday, Nate Lowe now has nine total hits in the past seven games. He also has recorded four separate multi-hit games over his last 10 starts. While it makes sense as to why he is a half-point favorite in this head-to-head, users should not sleep on Adolis Garcia when making MLB picks either. Garcia carries a four-game hitting streak into tonight’s contest and has totaled nine hits over his last eight games. With both players swinging a hot bat, taking Garcia plus the points seems ideal. The Awesemo MLB DFS projections rate him slightly higher than Lowe for tonight’s game as well.

Phillies vs. Cubs ‘More or Less’ Contest (5x Buy-In)

The first leg of this contest requires users to correctly predict total strikeouts for Zach Davies. Despite only pitching through four innings in his most recent outing, Davies still fanned six batters. In fact, he has exceeded the Monkey Knife Fight line of 3.5 strikeouts in five of his last six starts. Add in the fact that the Phillies strike out the seventh most per game as a team, and one has to like the over for Davies on this prop.

Bryce Harper has an over/under 1.5 total hits and walks tonight. One encouraging sign comes from his history against Davies. In 12 prior plate appearances Harper has recorded three of hits and one walk. Unfortunately, it is hard to get excited about the over when one considers Harper’s recent stat lines: He has only exceeded this total once in the last 10 games. Users should follow this trend and play under for tonight’s game.

Javier Baez’s over/under of 1.5 total bases rounds out this contest. It has largely been a struggle at the plate this season for Baez. That said, he did record a pair of hits yesterday. He also has at least one hit in seven of the last 10 games. Baez has also mashed two home runs over that stretch. He has two hits in eight prior at-bats against Matt Moore, one of which cleared the yard. While he may not take Moore deep tonight, one has to like his chances of doing some damage.
