Usually, one would have to flip the anode reaction! That is because the anode side is always an oxidation reaction where electrons are always on the products side being given off. The cathode/reduction reaction should have electrons on the reactants side. Then, you will have electrons on either side, cancelling each other out.

How do you exactly figure out the lowest reduction potential?
