This is for real.
The book is called: Chances: And How To Take Them by Zappa
It was written by Frank's (Frank V. Zappa) dad in 1966 (copyright date) and
is dedicated to his wife Rose-Marie "Whose Kindness, patience and
understanding has guided me through the many years of our married life. She
knows not how to gamble but she does know when and how to take a chance."
One of the freakiest things about this book of gamblings odds is the
illustrations that appear throughout. They are almost identical in style to
the illustrations by A.West in the RFZB.

4) The One-Armed Bandits
6) Dice or Craps
8) Horse Racing and Sports Betting
9) Black Jack or Baccarat
10) Miscellaneuos Dice and Card games
11) Mathematics of Possibilites
