Below are various styles of play that I personally, am not comfortable
In this case "not for me" means a high level of risk. There is no sure bet in gambling.
All of my comments and ratings are just my personnel opinion. You can bet any way you want.

1. 6 and 8 progressive
When you win a bet you press it. You have to
win each bet at least 3 times before you show a profit. If you keep pressing your bet, you
will have a lot of money on the table and be too exposed to a 7.
The only way you can make any money betting like this is on that rare hot table or if you are lucky and call off your bets just before a 7 is thrown.
Very high risk. An early 7 is a killer.
Good for a hot table.
2. 44 inside, no 4 & 10
You place the 5 and 9 for $10 each, 6 and 8
for $12 each ( $44 inside ) and lay $40 each on the 4 and 10. After any hit on an inside
number you take down the 5 and 9. Now if a 7 shows you win.
If the dice don't land your way you can get killed betting like this. A 4 or 10 showing before a 7 negates any real chance of making money.
For example: You go ahead and make this bet. The shooter throws a 4, 6, 10 and then a 7. Goodbye bucks!
What you are hoping for are a lot of 6 and 8's coming up, without a 4 or 10, before a 7 or a point is made with a 7 thrown on the come-out roll.
Very high risk. You are laying out too much money for a small return.
Good for a choppy table.
