NBA Playoff 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. Most options can be changed anytime during the pool.
For the NBA Playoff Games pool, 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.

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.
