Stevenson Wins - Get my bet (1k) and my earnings (2k) to have 3k then lose 1k from the bet on Penn, leaving me at +2k from Start.

Am I missing something here, or am I suddenly able to win a lot of credits really quickly? Hopefully I didn't just tell someone else's secret here.

Let it be known that I'm not here to make a bunch of Credits, but moreso to root on and support the fighters that I would like to win.

That being said- please disprove my logic.
yep that's how it works, you gotta bet on both fighters to maximize the odds of you winning.
