In the electoral college handicap -24.5 market there are two selections, Trump +24.5 and Clinton -24.5

Assuming no one else takes a seat does that mean to win she needs 282 (with trump on 266 for a gap of more than 24.5) or does it mean she needs 294 (with Trump on 244 so her score minus 24.5 is still higher than his score plus 24.5)?

The layer is guessing that the gap will be 24.5, so the weightings (the + and -) puts them level in his head.

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President.

So assuming nobody else interferes* then:
- 282 for Hillary wins a Hillary bet (Trump would have 256, gap = 26) and 280 for Hillary loses a Hillary bet (Trump would have 258, gap = 22).
- 282 for Hillary loses a Trump bet (Trump would have 256, gap = 26) and 280 for Hillary wins a Trump bet (Trump would have 258, gap = 22).

* It is not guaranteed that there are only 2 runners in this race. Utah (for example) could be won by some independant guy and bounce Trump out of those college votes.
