If looking to get the weekend off to a great start, consider checking out the slew of Monkey Knife Fight MLB contests on the board for tonight. This is the final weekend of games before baseball’s All-Star break. The teams and players would love to close out the first half of the season on a high note, and you can too with some winning MLB fantasy picks. As always, we have a couple of plays below to get you started including analysis and MLB picks for Jose Altuve.
Today’s Top Monkey Knife Fight MLB Player Prop Picks
Blue Jays vs. Rays ‘More or Less’ Contest (3x Buy-In)
First up is Tampa Bay Rays catcher Austin Meadows. Meadows has been swinging a hot bat recently, amassing 12 total hits over his last nine games. This includes a three-hit, two-RBI game in the Rays’ last contest against these same Blue Jays earlier this week. One concern, however, is that the stat in question is total bases. Meadows has 16 home runs on the season but none recently. With speed also not being his forte, legging out a double is not as automatic as it might be for other players. The under is the play here.
In the second leg of this contest, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has a line of 1.5 total hits and walks. Although the Awesemo MLB DFS projections are not nearly as high on the 22-year-old as they were during this week’s series against the Baltimore Orioles, it’s really hard to go against Guerrero based on his recent stat lines. He has four multi-hit games in his last nine and has also drawn four walks over that same span. Guerrero also has one prior double and walk drawn in five at-bats against Rays starter Shane McClanahan. Guerrero’s ability to draw walks is underrated. Look to roll with the over here.

Yankees vs. Astros ‘More or Less’ Contest (5x Buy-In)
For this Monkey Knife Fight MLB contest, users must predict over/under on three different player statistics. The first leg features Jake Odorizzi with a total strikeouts line of 5.5. While he has had a couple of better outings in his two most recent starts, this is a strikeout number that Odorizzi has only exceeded twice in his last seven games. The Awesemo MLB Plyer Props Tool likes the under on this line quite a bit despite the need to lay juice in the betting market.
The play for the second leg is D.J. LeMahieu going under 11.5 hits/walks. After a hot couple of weeks, LeMahieu has fallen off a bit recently. He has a stellar three-hit effort against the Mariners on Tuesday, but those are three of his five total hits in the last six games. He does have 38 walks on the season, so the plate discipline is there. But in terms of his history against Odorizzi, he has only reached base twice in nine prior plate appearances.
The final leg to round out this Monkey Knife Fight MLB contest plays Jose Altuve to go over/under 1.5 total bases. Yesterday saw Altuve’s six-game hitting streak come to an end. Nonetheless, he is still swinging the bat extremely well and also has a pair of home runs in the last six games. With Nestor Cortes drawing the start for the Yankees, this very well could be a bullpen game. New York’s pitching has been suspect in general this season. In addition, the Awesemo MLB DFS projections hold Altuve in high regard for tonight’s slate. With the home ballpark as his backdrop, look for Altuve to hit this over.
