The answer "Tomorrow will be better" should be accepted.

Based on other uses of 更 here, i don't think this is a comparison, but rather a quality statement that explicitly didn't compare. Think, "tomorrow will be quite nice". It doesn't compare to today, nor even leave you wondering, "Why are you saying tomorrow will be good? Wasn't today good?"

P.S. I asked a Chinese friend of mine, and he said that he would take this as an implied comparison with today.

"Tomorrow will be even better" should be accepted as well

I agree; the Chinese sentence implies that today was good. It makes sense to say "Tomorrow will be even better."

I feel that should be the main answer, because geng, to my recollection, implies it's good already.

"Tomorrow will be better" should be accepted as well.

Better entails that it is "more good" than today. Even if today was good, tomorrow will be better.

The dictionary hints on hover say 更好 is "better", but it should be "even better", shouldn't it?

Didn't we learn to use abstract comparison as "比较好"?

This was the title of a song written in 1985 to raise funds for aid to Africa.

Better than what? Better than tomorrow was going to be? Why so?
