    I do this all the time betting all kinds of things. Bet both sides, guarantee myself some cash no matter what.

    I live in a giant mansion and own 25 sports cars too. Floyd Mayweather is jealous of the number of 0's on my bank acct balance.

    How is it a win-win if there's a chance you come out with less money?

    I think what you need to do is make a parlay, one bet on jones and one bet on cormier, then it would work.
