Congratulations to our User Max for a terrific score of 80% when predicting the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards winners on Sunday. He is actually tied with SimonJupiter but has a better point score total of 22,109 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 300 people worldwide predicted these ACM champs for the ceremony hosted by Reba McEntire. Our top scorer got 8 out of 10 slots correct, including Entertainer of the Year (Keith Urban) and Female Artist (Kacey Musgraves). His only two misses were for Male Artist (choosing Chris Stapleton over Thomas Rhett) and Musical Event (choosing “Drowns the Whiskey” over “Burning Man”).
