THE UNITED STATES BEAT Ghana on Monday. The Portugal game is still a few days away. If you're looking to add a little spice to the World Cup experience in the meantime, so why not throw down a few bones on a fantasy World Cup game?

In regular fantasy sports, you miss a few days and you get way behind. Luckily, DraftStreet has it all figured out.

If Stuart Holden likes DraftStreet, you should too.

DraftStreet is hosting one-day fantasy contests where you can win cash on every match day during the tournament. The entry fees range from completely free to hundreds of dollars and you can play in head-to-head leagues or up against thousands of other World Cup fans. You can also play in Salary Cap style leagues, or Pick 'em leagues.

It’s all leading up to their massive $100,000 contest June 26th, where the winner will take home the $20,000 first place prize. You can learn more about that here.

To help you get started in on today's matches, we've put together a few recommendations for you.

  • At goalkeeper, Costa Rica's Keylor Navas had a standout showing against Uruguay, and is a bargain at $17,000 compared to a few thousand more for the Italian keepers. Plus, there’s the added bonus of knowing Navas will play.

  • With Honduras unlikely to score, Ecuador defender Jorge Guagua could be a wise buy at a relatively low price. Pair him with Patrice Evra, who could be good for a bevy of points off assists and also might be able to get a boost with France’s defensive performance.

  • In DraftStreet's tiered game, steer away from Wilson Palacios in Tier 4. The Honduran is suspended after his red card in the opener, and probably isn’t that savvy of a pick even were the Stoke City man in action.

  • Consider the dynamic Jefferson Montero, who is up against a weak-looking Catracho back line.

  • In the next level, Costa Rica’s Marco Ureña scored the most points last week, but he probably didn’t earn a starting a role. You might want to take a chance on Italy’s Marco Verratti, as the Hondurans haven’t scored since the 1980s at the World Cup.

    For complete rules and scoring details, head on over to DraftStreet. As an added perk, if you sign up through any of the American Soccer Now links and are a first-time depositor, you’ll receive a 100% bonus, up to $200.

    What are you waiting for? Over $100,000 has been won playing daily fantasy World Cup on DraftStreet so far. Sign up now and see if you can beat Jon Arnold's team this weekend and take home your piece of the prize pool.
