Monkey Knife Fight Prop of the Week | American Express 2021

How Does Monkey Knife Fight Work?

If you’re wondering what the hell is a Monkey Knife Fight, you’re not alone! However, we find Monkey Knife Fight to be one of the more unique daily fantasy golf sites. Plus, it’s legal in every state where fantasy sports operators are permitted so you don’t have to wait on your state to legalize more traditional sports betting. 

Monkey Knife Fight offers a player the chance to win real money by choosing from a number of prop type offerings in a given tournament or contest. Unlike DraftKings, you’re not competing against other players or sharps. You’re just picking and choosing your favorite MKF props and hopefully choosing the correct outcome. I started playing late in 2020 and won my golf props around 80% of the time. I don’t anticipate that heater to continue with this writeup in 2021, but I do think MKF offers a market for the educated golf handicapper to take advantage of on a weekly basis.

Monkey Knife Fight is the fastest growing daily fantasy sports site in the world and they're offering Tour Junkies fans a 100% instant deposit match bonus up to $50 when making your first deposit with promo code "TOURJUNKIES".


Every week there’s a PGA TOUR event or worldwide golf tournament offered on Monkey Knife Fight, I’m going to give you my absolute favorite prop of the week. I’d welcome our readers to tail the play and I’ll keep track of our win rate. I’ll wait until Tuesday or Wednesday each week to publish the play so we can determine if there’s a weather advantage for one wave or another, and gather all of our Caddie intel before locking in our play.

There are weeks when my confidence level in the prop will be higher or lower based on the Monkey Knife Fight lines and/or my intel on the tournament. For that reason, I thought I’d provide a rating scale to indicate how confident I’m feeling in the play. Regardless of the rating, the prop I post will by favorite prop offered for the entire event that week. 

$ - Feels like a gamble, but I still like our chances

$$ - Gamblin by definition, but starting to feel like we stealin this one

$$$ - Entering lock territory

$$$$ - An edge has been found. How should we spend our winnings?

The Can't Miss (could maybe miss) MKF Prop of the week

The strong start continues as we hit last week to go 2-0 and we've 6.5x'd our money in 2 weeks. So this week I really had a hard time nailing down a prop to go with on MKF. I spent a lot of time on the More or Less side trying to land on one, but there was always one player that didn't quite trust. I think this year will be interesting due to a round at the very easy La Quinta being exchanged with the more difficult Stadium Course. That will 100% limit the number of birdies and eagles as compared to years past.

That being said, the winning tournament score I've seen on most books is -23.5, so still a ton of birdies and eagles out there. So...I'm going to pivot this week with our first "Rapid Fire" prop of the year at a rating of $$. Basically, you're picking head to head matchups between players, but not worrying about total score or finish position. You're picking birdie or better with 1 player typically getting a tie breaker +0.5 hook. This way, you're not worried about if they hit a birdie or better mark, or finish at a certain spot. You just need them to make more birdies or better than the player they're up against.

Every week of the year, as long as history continues to repeat itself, you would pick Cantlay to score more than Ancer. Regardless of course, history, etc...Cantlay is in a different class of player. Plus, Cantlay gets the +0.5 hook! Both have knocked the rust off in Hawaii already and both had solid performances last time around PGA WEST with Ancer nearly winning and Cantlay finishing 9th in 2019. This is the easiest choice of the prop.

Scheffler over Wolff is also pretty easy for me THIS WEEK, although still scary due to Wolff's ability to get white hot. We haven't seen Wolff since his missed cut at The Masters, while we saw Scottie finish T13 in Kapalua to shake the rust off. In addition to Wolff's poor outing at Augusta, he sucked in the previous 2 non cut events. In terms of experience here, Scheffler finished 3rd last year and Wolff finished T61. In addition to all of that...I didn't love Wolff's press conference yesterday. The short version is, he hasn't practiced or played a ton of golf since Augusta, he wished the break was longer, didn't have a lot of expectations this week and it wouldn't spiral him into depression if he didn't impress this week as he knocked the dust off his clubs. I'll take Scheffler against the +1.5 hook because I'm not even sure Wolff makes the weekend.

Finally, I'm taking the firepower of Finau +0.5 hook over Henley. I may prefer the value Henley brings in DFS, but I like Tony in the prop as long as he makes the weekend. Tony finished 14th here last year, while Henley's played it 5 times with his best finish being T49. Both men played well after the restart in June and while I like Henley's T11 last week better than Finau's T31 at the Sentry, history has proven that doesn't matter much at PGA WEST (ie Landry & Long).


I'm choosing to max out the bet here at $100 to win $400, but MKF offers lower amounts depending on your risk tolerance. I'm not tracking dollars won or lost with this article, rather just tracking how many of these props I get right and how many I get wrong. So far for 2021, I'm 2-0. I'm fairly confident this week and want to max it out given we're off to a hot start. Let's go!
