Bowl Games - League Options
Scoring options determine how many points are awarded for a correct pick for players in a league. Other options determine how the league works.
For the Bowl Games, without any scoring options turned on, all correct picks are worth 10 points each.
The point value for each pick, along with other team info, is shown on the picks page once picks are available. Hover over the points shown there for more scoring info for each team. You can try different league options here and then see the resulting point values on the picks page.
Play Beat the Spread instead of Pick the Winners:
Pick which teams will beat the spread instead of picking which teams will win the game.
This option uses the point spreads displayed on the picks page to determine the correct pick.
Both teams' picks in each game are worth the same number of points.
Underdogs are worth more points:
Underdogs are worth more points
With this option, instead of a pick being worth 10 points, an underdog's pick will be worth 11, 12, 13, etc points.
Conversely, a favorite's pick will be worth 9, 8, 7, etc points.
Points values are based on the point spread of the game. Point values may change as the spread changes.
Bigger bowl games are worth more points:
Bigger bowl games are worth more points
With this option, game points increase with a game's significance, which is based on team rankings, bowl payout and bowl tradition.
Points are multiplied by a factor of your choosing (1, 3, 6, 9, 12).
For example, with the default medium setting, games are multiplied by a factor of 1 to 6, based on it's significance, e.g., the CFP National Championship Game is worth 6 times as much as the smaller early bowls.
Using this option along with the underdog option is recommended for a more challenging game experience.
Include Over/Under Picks:  
Over/Under
Players pick whether the total points scored in a game will be OVER or UNDER the posted number.
Win 5 or 10 points for correct over/under picks. Lose 5 or 10 points for wrong ones. League players don't have to make over/under selections. Players who make over/under picks do not necessarily have an advantage since there is a 50/50 chance to win or lose points.

Typically you can only see other league members' picks after a game begins.
With this option, players can always see league competitors' picks.
Players can change their picks until a game begins.
Options can only be changed by the league commissioner.
League options do not affect players' points on the All Players leaderboard on the home page. Depending on the league options selected, your league points may be different from your All Players leaderboard points.
