When the electrons are both on the reactant side, you flip the reaction that has the lowest cell potential, and make the cell potential negative. from this point you can balance the half reactions and write the full cell reaction.
We should flip the half equation that has lower standard electric potential and if the reaction is favorable, the standard electric potential of the cell should be positive and the standard Gibbs free energy should be negative.
