    silver, near the end, was calling for like 314 EVs (tho that was a statistical average rather than an actual combination of states).

    wang was calling for 331 IIRC. wang got it almost spot-on.

    both, however, had 330 come up as the most common scenario. nate tends to add a 'fudge factor' to his work as a way of dealing with the possibility of some polls being just total horseshit, whereas wang tends to just aggregate the data alone.
