5/5 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $27,800)
1/2 in Final Jeopardy
Average Coryat: $11,500
Sam Kavanaugh, to win:
3 games: 72.282%
Avg. streak: 4.608 games.
- Steven should have limited his Final Jeopardy! bet to no more than $8,800. Any bet between $8,000 and $8,800 here gives Steven the best chance of winning.
- The prediction model is probably going to upset people even further, but Sam is actively trying to find Daily Doubles and is making the most of them. 5/5 is no fluke; I’m OK with the prediction model being northward of 70% for him.
