NBA Weekends - League Options
Scoring options affect how many points are awarded for a correct pick for players in the league. Other options affect how the league works.
For the NBA Weekends 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.
Weekly player matchups determine the league winner:
Match Play
With this option ON, players are matched up against another league member each week, similar to NFL fantasy football. The player with the most points wins the match. The best W/L record at the end of the season wins the league.
With this option OFF, the player with the most total points at the end of the season wins the league.
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.
Include the bonus game:
Weekly Bonus Game
Each week, one game (preselected by poolsbyround) will have it's point values doubled.
Allow the opportunity for league members to risk extra points on each game's pick:
Risk extra points on each game's pick option
When the 'risk' choice is selected for a pick, you win extra points for a correct pick or lose points for an incorrect pick.
When 'risk' is not selected, you do not lose points for an incorrect pick.
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 points for correct over/under picks. Lose 5 points for wrong ones. League players don't have to make over/under selections.
See other league members' picks before the pick deadlines:

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.
