    You can't pick a number already taken and each guess must be rounded to 1000's. (ex: +201,000, -14,000, +195,000, +176,000, -5,000, etc. - no 100's)

    There's a travel mug up for grabs for the closest pick.



    If the winner also guesses the unemployment number correctly, they can upgrade to the stainless mug if they'd like (so predict both)!



    We'll take predictions until 8:15 AM ET Friday morning, July 8


    Thanks, and good luck!

    Briefing.com's consensus estimates are looking for +170,000 and 4.8%.

    Congratulations, Pocono!!
    Isn't TSPtalk the greatest site ever?!?
    Where else can you miss a guess by over 100,000 and STILL WIN a prize?!?
    (Well, I was off by almost 200,000, so I don't really have a leg to stand on. )
