First game: Bet 50 on team A
Second game: Bet 50 on team A

if team A wins 2, you win 100
if team A looses 2, you win 100
otherwise you're at 0 for the third game, so

Third game: Bet 100 on either team

-Rob

Bet 100 (to win) on any one game, and zero on the others.

Two teams play a best of three series. You bet on each game. How
should you bet so that at the end of the series, regardless of the
outcome, your total winnings is $100 or your total loss is $100. Each
bet is 1:1, that is, for example, if you bet $20, you either win extra
$20 or you lose your $20.
