Final Jeopardy! wagering analyses – Season 31

For each game in Season 31, I’ll break down the Final Jeopardy! situation and look at how each player can optimize his or her chances of winning.

Here are my analyses from Season 30 and Season 32.

Games in red represent games with “wager-to-tie” scenarios. Numbers next to a player’s name refer to their appearance numbers, e.g., “4-6” means fourth through sixth appearances, with the last probably a loss.
