Women's Olympic Basketball Group Phase - 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 Olympic Basketball Group Phase pools, with the Underdog option set to None, all correct picks are worth 10 points.
You can try different league options here and then see the resulting team point values on the picks page. 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.

With this option, instead of a pick being worth 10 points, an underdog's pick will be worth 11, 12, 13, etc points.

Points values are based on the point spread of the game. Point values may change as the spread changes.
