The winner of the World Series is the first team to win four games, so the maximum number of games that could be played is 7. You want to place a $100 bet (even money) on your team to win the whole series. A bookie says he will not take bets on the whole series, but would be willing to let you bet on each individual game. Is there a betting strategy you could put in place to replicate your $100 bet?
