February 10 NBA DFS Picks on Monkey Knife Fight: Monkey Knife Fight (MKF) combines elements of daily fantasy sports and traditional prop betting to offer a unique array of contests daily for a multitude of sports, including 2/10/21 NBA DFS Plays.

With NBA season in full swing, MKF enhances the enjoyment of the hardwood with exciting opportunities each night to win cash based on your knowledge of some of the league’s top players.

The Game Day breaks down two MKF contests daily that we feel have profit potential. With Wednesday’s slate featuring plenty of big names, here’s a closer look at some opportunities involving some of the most offensively explosive players in action:

February 10 DFS Picks

Atlanta Hawks at Dallas Mavericks

MKF Contest: More or Less- Fantasy Points (Pick 2/2 correctly to win 2.5x your Buy-in)

MKF NBA Fantasy Points Scoring System:

  • Point= +1 point
  • Assist= +1.5 points
  • Rebound= +1.2 points
  • Steal= +3 points
  • Block= +3 points
  • Turnover= -1 point

Clint Capela, C, Atlanta Hawks: More Than 41.5 Fantasy Points

The Mavericks check in ranked in the bottom 10 in offensive efficiency (33.1 percent), points (23.6), rebounds (14.8), assists (4.0) and steals (1.9) allowed to centers, while Capela comes into Wednesday’s matchup having eclipsed 41.5 MKF points in nine of 20 games. The veteran big man is also averaging career highs in rebounds (14.6) and blocks (2.4), and it’s worth noting that eight of the aforementioned times he’s exceeded this contest’s statistical benchmark have come in the last 11 games.

Kristaps Porzingis, PF, Dallas Mavericks: Less Than 39.5 Fantasy Points

Porzingis is coming off a prolific performance versus the Timberwolves on Monday night, but that was partly fueled by six blocks and a co-season-high 27 points. The defensive challenge is much stiffer Wednesday, as the Hawks are ranked in the top half of the league with 111.1 points per game allowed and are surrendering the sixth-lowest shooting percentage (44.7) as well.

With Capela down low, Atlanta has also been tough on centers, giving up just 30.1 MKF points per game and the 11th-lowest offensive efficiency (30.0 percent) to the position. Porzingis has fallen short of the 39.5 benchmark in half of his 14 games thus far, and I’m envisioning this game being the eighth.

Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns

MKF Contest: More or Less- Fantasy Points (Pick 2/2 correctly to win 2.5x your Buy-in)

MKF NBA Fantasy Points Scoring System:

  • Point= +1 point
  • Assist= +1.5 points
  • Rebound= +1.2 points
  • Steal= +3 points
  • Block= +3 points
  • Turnover= -1 point

Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks: More Than 54.5 Fantasy Points

Antetokounmpo has cleared this statistical benchmark in 11 of 23 games this season, a testament to the massive fantasy ceiling he brings each time he takes the floor. Giannis also boasts a 32.1 percent usage rate and averages 1.63 MKF points per minute without Jrue Holiday on the floor, and the veteran guard is expected to miss Wednesday’s game due to health and safety protocols.

Antetokounmpo should have the ball in his hands even more than usual and could frequently have his way with a Suns squad that could be missing Chris Paul (hamstring) and is allowing the second-most rebounds (11.6) to power forwards.

Devin Booker, SG, Phoenix Suns: More Than 36.5 Fantasy Points

With Holiday likely out for the Bucks, Milwaukee will be without a key defender to throw against Booker, who’ll enter the game shooting an impressive 49.6 percent over his last six contests. Booker has scored 45.9 and 50.0 MKF points in his last two contests, and he’s eclipsed Wednesday’s benchmark in seven of 19 games thus far. He also boasts a 32.9 percent usage rate and averages 1.14 MKF points per minute with Paul off the floor this season, and it’s also worth noting the Bucks are allowing the second-highest three-point shooting percentage (40.6) on the road.
