World Series

Why wouldn't you just bet $10k on the first game and be done with it?

I think the puzzle is to come out with per-game bets that work out to the same result as a bet on the overall series.

Betting everything on the first game isn't the same as betting on the series, since a team can win the first game and go on to lose the series...

Hi,
Can someone explain to me the logic behind choosing the pile matrix entries to be the averages of the right and bottom entries? (I am referring to the solution)
