How Daily Fantasy Sports Work

SPORT.Guru offers daily fantasy sport contests for professional football leagues and tournaments. Similar to traditional football manager or tipping games, you draft your own team of real players and compete against others for cash prizes.

Our Games Lobby shows all contests and the corresponding parameters, for example “Round 15 Matchday”, “Saturday Kickoff at 3:30pm” and much more. You must be 18+ to participate and abide by our Terms of Service.

  • Enter a Contest and Draft Your Team

    Go to the Games Lobby to challenge your friends or join an existing league or tournament. You can set filters for entry fee, number of participants, and start date.

    SPORT.Guru offers contests in 8 European football leagues (Bundesliga, Serie A, Englische Premier League, UEFA Champions League, etc.). There’s something for everyone!

    Choose your players from at least two teams competing in the matches of your contest. Your team needs to stay under the salary cap, so chose your players wisely!

    Good to know: On SPORT.Guru you get unlimited, free transfers right up until the first game begins.

Player Draft – create your own team and score points based on your players’ real-life performance

Pick ‘Em – predict the winning teams on particular matchdays

Pick ’Em / Tie Breaker – in this game format you predict the winning teams on your selected matchday(s). Additionally you have to predict the total number of goals scored during the last game in your contest. In case of a tie, the user whose predictions was closest to the number of goals scored, wins the contest.

Ultimate Pick ‘Em – a tricky game contest letting you predict which teams will win, whether they will cover the spread, and the over/under of the total goals scored. Each correct prediction earns you points; highest number of points wins the contest!

  • Sit Back and Watch the Action!

    Let your team do the heavy lifting and prove your football expertise. Your players’ real-life performance on matchday earns points for your team. The better they play, the more points you score.

For football manager contests, points are scored as follows:

Goals = 10.00
Assists = 4.00
Clean Sheet = 4.00
Penalty Score = 3.00
Saves = 2.00
Shots = 1.00
60 Minutes Played = 1.00
Shots On Goal = 1.00
Fouls Drawn = 1.00
Yellow Cards = -1.50
Offsides = -1.50
Goals Conceded = -2.00
Red Cards = -4.00
Own Goal = -4.00
Penalty Miss = -5.00

  • Collect Your Winnings

    If your fantasy team earned the most points in the contest, your winnings will automatically be deposited to your SPORT.Guru balance. We offer the following prize structures:

    TOP 3 contests have payouts for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
    In a 50/50 contest, you win if your team places in the top 50% of users,
    and a Double OR Nothing contest pays double your entry fee if you score enough points.
