Default DEAL or NO DEAL (TV Game Show) How Decide?

DEAL or NO DEAL. USA TV Game Show. Airs Friday nights, 8pm EST on NBC.

What is the correct way to decide whether to accept the bankers offer?

The way I'm figuring it, you add the remaining dollar amounts and divide the total dollars by the number of cases left. That would be your EV.

If the bankers offer is substantially lower, pick more cases. If the bankers offer is close to your EV, either accept it or pick more cases. It doesn't matter. But accepting is lower variance and less risky.

If the bankers offer is higher than EV, accept it. This rarely happens.

Is this correct?
