There isn't really a clear consensus on this point. I would argue that the best predictor is an average of your most recent NBME exams, but even that can have some error. People seem to forget the standard error in the 3 digit scores; even according to the NBME's published data, 2 scores must differ by more than 16 points in order for the difference to be statistically significant! Because of this inherent variability, you're going to find quite a bit of variability and that's exactly what you'll see if you look around this forum and others like it.

I guess after you get your score report we can tell you what the most predictive one WAS, but we can't do it the other way around

I took 4 different forms in a week period before my exam and my scores were all within 10 points from each other so I think they are all very well.
