When you bet a guy $5.00 you can knock him down with one punch - if you do, you get his $5.00 + you've still got your $5.00; that's a 1/1 bet. You made $5.00 (course, you could have lost $5.00, but that's always the case when you lose). And that's why you'd make a 1/1 bet - to make the amount you're betting - bet a million and win and you've got an extra million.
