DraftStreet is hosting one-day fantasy contests where you can win cash
on every match day during the tournament. The entry fees range from
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.

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.
