OK, probably not. It just seems to think I've already voted and so all I see is the current tally - is anyone else experiencing this?

I voted very early.  I saw the %s on both sides change after my vote.

OK - I figured it out. But now I think I've discovered a way to vote more than once??

I don't think so. But, I bet you could probably predict the outcome based on what is the the most popular books. :)

Makes me wonder if FL has an office betting pool. Surprise

It's like watching the national election results. There are only a couple of tight "races" in the early rounds here.

My bracket has Romans and Genesis in the championship round with Romans taking the title.

I'm thinking Romans and Psalms.

Of course it's rigged; Given the makeup of the board, it's Romans. Wink

"Rigged" seems a bit strong.  It does seem like they've placed what you might consider some top seed choices up against what might be bottom seed contenders.  Perhaps that's to make the later rounds more exciting and less predictable?

I am slightly disappointed. Some of the "lesser" books have ZERO CHANCE of leaving the first round.

Poor Habakkuk, 2 & 3 John, Joel, Nahum, and Haggai.

They've always done that sort of thing in MM.

I predict D. A. Carson is going to win.

I probably would too, if I were them.

Vote early and vote often. That's what they say in Chicago, I hear.

(Yes, I'm aware it is unlikely this was spoken by Lenin.)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Yeah. Calling it rigged was shameless clickbait :) 

I do like the fact that they are offering bundles this year and they've revealed what they are upfront. 

And the Psalms/Romans final is the right prediction - hey Logos maybe next year you could do a Buffet and offer a prize for the person who can predict the outcome of each and every bracket??

Naturally it makes sense to "seed" these entries, so something like Psalms doesn't get eliminated in round 1 by something like Romans. I would've loved hearing the discussions about how to seed these. Perhaps using sales stats?

Yes, that's what they do with all the sporting events.
