  •  Prediction contest scoring clarification... (0+ / 0-)

    I'm confused.  Does the person with the highest score win?  That doesn't make sense.

    The rules say this:

    The contest will be scored as such:
    Senate: [Number of Senate seats guessed] minus [actual results] multiplied by five. (In other words, if you guess 59 Democratic seats and we end up with 60, your score is 5. If you guess 61 and we end up with 58, your score is 15.)

    If it's scored like that, then shouldn't I just enter 71-26 (giving all senate elections, even places like Wyoming and Kansas to the Dems)?  If they end up with 59, then my score is 60.  If you guess 60 and they get 59, then your score is 5.

    Am I missing something?
