What does Lisa Randall mean by "I've even bet chocolate based on those odds"? Can somebody explain it to me?

It means she has said to someone "I'll bet you this bar of chocolate that the Higgs boson is light". Considering the current economic situation and its resultant cuts to science funding, she obviously can't afford to bet money, so she gambles with the next most important thing, chocolate.
