INTERESTING: Final Jeopardy betting strategy?

Watching a recent Jeopardy, I was reminded of my quest for the formula for final jeopardy wagering.

X, Y, and Z are the final amounts of the leader, midfielder, and trailer.

If X > 2Y, then there’s no calculation needed.

If X-2Y > 2Z, then the trailer plays no part in the action.

If X-2Y > Z, then the trailer must play to have any chance to win.

If X-2Y < Z, then the trailer must bet zero and hope they both miss.

Any other strategies?
