Four-fifths for first place

Joel: You ought to try wagering between $701 and $4,800. This will top a $0 wager by Betty while still beating Maribeth and Betty on the Triple Stumper (should Maribeth wager to cover Betty's doubled score and Betty wager to cover your doubled score).

Betty: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Joel, hoping that you give the correct response and Maribeth doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $5,501 to cover Joel's doubled score, but no more than $6,300 if you want to top Maribeth on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $699 and win if both Maribeth and Joel miss Final.

Maribeth: Wager $6,601 to cover Betty.
