Congratulations to our User Max for a terrific score of 76.92% when predicting the 2018 ACM Awards winners on Sunday. He is actually tied with Wesley Perry at that percentage but has the better point score total of 5,841 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Almost 300 people worldwide predicted these Academy of Country Music winners in 13 categories. The awards ceremony was held on April 15 in Las Vegas and was hosted by Reba McEntire. Our top scorer got several top winners correct, including Miranda Lambert (female vocalist), Chris Stapleton (male vocalist) and Brothers Osborne (vocal duo). He only missed three categories, but one of those was the biggest prize of Entertainer of the Year (picking Garth Brooks over champ Jason Aldean).
