However, that would be too high, since we surely don't want a 0 EV." Do you mean if a bet size is too high, it would not be called, therefore the final value would be zero?

But when you are value betting you should be sure you have the best hand in play. Then the size of the bet is the maximum amount you think your opponent will call.

EV = (F% * P\$) + (1 - F%) * ((W% * (P\$ + S\$)) - ((1 - W%) * S\$)) this formulae is correct only when P\$+S\$ = W\$, where W\$ is the amount earned at showdown. So this formulae as it is only applies at situations where villain open raises and we shove. As this is not always the case(not always W\$ = P\$+S\$), a more general form of this formulae would be by ...
