Theory Behind Optimal Strategy
The theory here is that for a risk free bet you should maximize upside rather than opting for safety. If you bet $100 at -10000 to win $101, your free bet will only net you a positive gain of $1, and if you lose your bet, you get your $100 back. So the binary outcomes are $100 (loss, free bet cost replaced) and $101 (win). However, if you bet $100 at +1000 to win $1,100, your outcomes are $100 (loss, free bet cost replaced) or $1,100 (win).
