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.
Rapidfire — Pick Winner of Two Matchup Categories | Prize: 3x
In this Monkey Knife Fight game type, you are picking which of two players will score higher in a stat category. One player gets a handicap, much like the spread in a typical NBA game bet. If you pick both matchups correctly, you win three times your entry fee.
Points: Luka Doncic (+0.5) vs. Kawhi Leonard
Rebounds: Clint Capela vs. Ben Simmons (+3.5)
It is win our go home for both Doncic and Leonard. For Doncic, the defense knows they only need to stop him. For Leonard, he has Paul George to take pressure off of him. Last game, with his back up against the wall, Leonard scored 45 points in a terrific performance. He should win this matchup.
This rebounding matchup is a point guard against a center. However, it is much closer than that makes it seem. Simmons has had back-to-back games with double-digit rebounds, and he has totaled at least nine in four of his last five games. This means Capela needs to grab at least 13 rebounds to have a chance to win this matchup. He has back-to-back 15-rebound games. With the question mark of the Philadelphia frontcourt, Capela should have a solid day.
MKF NBA DFS Pick: Kawhi Leonard, Clint Capela
4 Point Play — Goal: 74.5 Points + 3’s | Prize: 1.5x
In this Monkey Knife Fight NBA fantasy contest, we are picking two players to combine for at least 75 points plus 3-pointers made. Users can also increase the goal to raise the payout, but picking at 74.5 gives a payout of 1.5 times the entry fee.
Gamers don’t need to think too hard about this pick. In a Game 7, Leonard and George are expected to be the highest scorers of the day. The two combined for 74 points and seven 3-pointers in Game 6, leading to a total of 81 for this contest type.

More or Less — Pick 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. The stat categories for these players differ, so make sure to pay attention when making picks. The nice thing about this contest is that only two of the three picks need to be correct to earn 1.7 times the entry fee back.
Luka Doncic: Less than 33.5 Points
Clint Capela: More than 12.5 Rebounds
Trae Young: More than 9.5 Assists
While Doncic can combine with Leonard to win the previous contest, he still scores 33 points or less. He has scored under 30 in two of the past three games, including 29 last game. While he should have a great game, the defense’s attention will be on him, and Doncic will look to make the play for others often.
Capela’s ability to grab rebounds still holds true for this contest, whether Joel Embiid plays or not.
Trae Young has shown this postseason that he can also thrive will creating plays for others. In this Round 2 series, the 76ers will likely play tight defense on Young, forcing the role players of Atlanta to defeat them. This should lead to plenty of assists for Young, who averaged 9.8 last series.
More or Less — Pick 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; the payout is too sweet not to.
Luka Doncic: More than 57.5 Fantasy Points
Kawhi Leonard: More than 53.5 Fantasy Points
Trae Young: Less than 47.5 Fantasy Points
Paul George: More than 43.5 Fantasy Points
