Final Jeopardy! wagering analysis:
Tuesday, September 27, 2016

previous week same week following week
19 20 21 22 23 26 27 28 29 30 3 4 5 6 7

Thanks to my wagering sentries, I was well prepared for Tuesday’s results.

Seth is in control heading into Final, but both of his opponents can dethrone him.

Seth

Wilson (6x)

Miranda

Prince

Bing

Kao

15,800 9,100 6,800

Both Miranda and Bing should go for broke, since Seth has them each in a “crush” situation; the only way either can win is with a correct answer.

Bing’s Penultimate Wager (1,200 out of 8,000) was ok – he would have been in second place with a correct response, but here, he’s still alive. (I would have preferred he gone for everything, but that would not have worked out too well for him.)

For my thoughts, please watch the end of my video.

Seth is the main beneficiary of this, bringing his 7-day total up to $166,500. The biggest losers are his challengers in the next game, who I’m sure were not very pleased with Miranda.
