Hi Stone Lees,

The idea needed here is to express that it isn't possible to imagine and that's why I can't imagine is best here. I will not imagine doesn't convey the same idea.

If you place a bet, you make a wager. Here, it is being used very informally as a way of saying, "I will wager that you do not know". It's a commonplace phrase, and does not indicate a true wager here.
