How is it possible to both win and lose my wager at the same time?

Did this happen? I recommend posting this in troubleshooting, and you're more likely to get a response.

If your wager is in a quantum superposition, going to the store and observing it ought to collapse the wavefunction.

I personally don't mess with the wagers anymore because it gains you nothing. I have lost so many gems with it because i could never keep a streak but then I realized........you are paying 50 gems......to get 50 gems. Like bruh, DO I LOOK STUPID TO YOU!!

(Well... uhh..actually I guess I am because...I uhhh....look who lost hundreds of gems to it......me) :/

Has anyone else noticed this?

That's not how it works... Although I use lingots instead of gems, I think it works the same way. You pay 5 lingots and get 10 lingots if you make it for a week, so your net profit is 5 lingots.

Yes but don't you get the 50 gems/5 lingots at the end of the week anyways? I'm not sure. But it says, pay 50 gems/5 lingots now and if you get a 7 day streak it will double your 50 gem/5 lingot wager.

You don't get 50 gems at the end of the week on mobile. The devs replaced that with the treasure chests.

Ohh, wait now I get it. They are doubling your wager which is what you paid them. I'm sorry, you are right. Guess I am stupid lol ;)
