For the fun of the game:
Why not put money on every place number: 4,5,6,8,9,10, now you have 24 combinations that will will you money on the next roll, against a 6 combinations that will lose it all. So, 67% chance of winning some money, 13% push, and only 13% loss it all.
I’ve seen people call all the bet off, after a 4,5,6,8,9,10 hits, and wait until the next come out. Now the only way you will lose it all is when someone roll a 7 before any of those number after the come out.
And if you catch a luck streak, you can have all the bets turned on and enjoy it.
More importantly, it is much more fun than to lay the 4, 10, and wait for someone to roll a 7. Which could be extremely boring on a “hot” table.
Best bet on the table is the odds.
The best bet on the table depends on what your goal is. The odds bet is traditionally cited as the best bet because it is a fair bet (i.e. the house has no advantage on it). If all you want to do is win enough for a trip to the all-you-can-eat buffet, however, laying no-4 or no-10 offers the best chance to win.
