I’m still not fully clear on the advantages/disadvantages of Placing a # or Buying a #.
This is my understanding so far, plz correct this if I’m wrong:
-Buying #‘s means you get True Odds but pay a 5% vig to the house.
-Placing #‘s means u don’t pay a vig but the Payout is Worse.
So what I notice, is that its best to “Place” the 6 n’ 8. And “Buy” the 4 n’ 10. 5 n’ 9 is a small difference in favor of Buying.
So when I get to the tables I will always BUY the 4 or 10 and PLACE the 6or8. Is this the best way to go?
E.g. Placing 10or4 pays 9/5. So $10 hit will be paid $28
Buying 10or4 pays 2/1 -%5 vig. So $10 hit will be paid $29
That’s a $1 dollar difference. All of us could find a way to use an extra buck.
The advantage of Placing the 6n’8 rather than Buying them is there but it harder to explain.
