Zach Brunner finds the best NBA fantasy Monkey Knife Fight picks and predictions for the NBA Playoffs games today, Friday, June 11, 2021.

There are two games again today, and small NBA fantasy slates will continue the rest of the way, which could turn many away from building lineups. Luckily, there is an NBA DFS picks alternative with Monkey Knife Fight, which has many contests for the Round 2 games today. MKF features props for users to pick fantasy points, actual points, rebounds and more. You will be competing only against yourself. Also, the payout increases with contests that require more picks.

While there are far too many contests to include them all in this article, let’s go through some of the best NBA fantasy Monkey Knife Fight picks to make for our NBA playoff games today.

Monkey Knife Fight NBA Fantasy Picks | NBA Playoffs

It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, contests at MKF are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it’s wise to jump on them quickly.

Double-Doubling — Goal: Over 2.5 | Prize: 2x

For this contest, gamers pick three players in today’s games, with the goal being to select players to finish with a double-double. While one could pick one or two with a smaller payout, picking three players to finish with a double-double doubles the payout.

Rebounds are typically the easiest stat to complete the double-double, and there are four great big men that could all grab at least 10 rebounds tonight. Joel Embiid has averaged 39.5 between the first two games. With the Hawks shooting worse in Game 2, he also grabbed 13 rebounds. While Atlanta will likely shoot better than Game 2, he should still soak up rebounds.

Deandre Ayton has been a strong double-double player all postseason. He finished the first two games of this series with double-doubles, and he should keep it going on the road.

Since Clint Capela’s scoring is inconsistent, Nikola Jokic gets the final nod. Jokic’s rebounding is a little more inconsistent than the previous two MKF picks, but with the Suns doing more of their damage in the paint than the Trail Blazers did, Jokic has played closer to the basket and grabbing more rebounds than last series. In Game 2, he grabbed 13 in 30 minutes. If the Suns shoot a little worse on the road, that only helps Jokic here.

Dropping Dimes — Goal: Over 28.5 | Prize: 1.8x

For this contest, gamers pick three players in today’s games, with the goal being to select players to combine for over 28.5 assists. Doing this will earn 1.8 times your entry as a payout. If you’re feeling confident, you can raise the assist total to earn a payout up to four times.

Picking players for this is easy. The first pick is Chris Paul, who continues to confuse and dismantle the Nuggets defense. It led to assist totals of 11 and 15 in Games 1 and 2, respectively. He has also scored well, meaning Denver must continue stopping him first, leading to Paul finding the open shooter.

Trae Young has also been consistent and solid in the assist category all postseason. Only one time this postseason has Young dished fewer than nine assists. He has 10 and 11 assists in Games 1 and 2 of this series. Ben Simmons continues to make stopping Young from scoring the priority, which leads to more assists.

Speaking of Simmons, he’s the third pick. His job is to play defense and pass on offense. It has led to double-digit assist totals in two of his last three games. He will have every opportunity to get back to double digits today.

More or Less — More/Less for Each Player | Prize: 1.7x

In this Monkey Knife Fight NBA fantasy contest, it is a simple more/less pick for three players. We’re picking a more or less for fantasy points in this contest. The nice thing about this specific contest is that we need only two of our three picks to be correct to win 1.7 times our entry fee.

Joel Embiid: Less than 59.5 Fantasy Points

Nikola Jokic: More than 55.5 Fantasy Points

Trae Young: More than 45.5 Fantasy Points

Embiid has looked unstoppable in this series, but this is still asking him to hit 60 fantasy points. He has needed 15 and 16 free-throw attempts between the two games to hit 63.8 and 64.6 fantasy points, respectively. So a couple fewer trips to the free throw line would mean the under hits, as is the case for a couple missed shots that would normally go in at home.

Jokic has his back up against the wall, heading home to hear thousands call him the MVP in unison. He was on his way to putting up over 55.5 in Game 2, but a blowout limited his minutes. In what should be a closer game, he should score at least 56.

Young’s assists were discussed above. These should continue to stack up in the same way as they have. He scored 54.4 in Game 1 and 40.1 in Game 2. The difference was his poor shooting last time out. Playing in his home venue in front of a rowdy Atlanta crowed, he should shoot better today.

More or Less — More/Less for Each Player | Prize: 125x

This is another More or Less contest, but picking this big contest correctly wins 125 times the entry. It won’t be easy; eight players’ fantasy points need to be correct. However, it’s worth sprinkling a little bit on since the payout is so great.

Joel Embiid: Less than 59.5 Fantasy Points

Nikola Jokic: More than 55.5 Fantasy Points

Trae Young: More than 45.5 Fantasy Points

Chris Paul: More than 40.5 Fantasy Points

Tobias Harris: Less than 40.5 Fantasy Points

Devin Booker: Less than 39.5 Fantasy Points

Ben Simmons: Less than 39.5 Fantasy Points

Deandre Ayton: Less than 34.5 Fantasy Points
