By my calculations, if Michael is willing to take this wager, he
*should* be thinking that the Blue Jays have a .5 chance of winning both
games, which is equivalent to the Blue Jays having a .707 chance of
winning either game. Now, a .707 chance of winning one game would give
a line close to about 12-5, meaning that if the Blue Jays win, Michael
would win $5, but if they lose, he would lose $12. I don't think I've
ever seen a baseball line this close. The highest I can recall is 11-5,
although there may have been higher, I don't know. Anybody know?
