    I like to make a one roll only lay bet on the comeout. Odds aside, which lay bet have you had the best results with?

    If I'm on I'll lay no-5 and no-9 on the comeout, setting 4-3 on the axes. PL for enough to cover the vig and a whirl for half the PL. I rarely do this, for as I said I have to feel I'm in the zone, but when I have done it I have done very well. Of course there are those other times I've done it as well.

    I'm normally not a Don't player, but for a one roll bet on the come out, you would think the no 4 or ten with a hardway hedge ( have it working on the East coast) would be good bet. Remove all bets after the come out roll. Only 2 ways can beat you.

    So you Fellows are talking about a one time Lay.


    Im thinking if I get only one shot, its either Ann-Margaret or Jane Russell.


    Your thoughts.............

    Just remember.......it's not what you got, but what you do with what you got.

    If I had to pick just one it would be Jane.

    I can't believe I am going down this road but my one time lay would have to be Bette Midler. I am like half her age but there is just something about her...

    Seriously though, Grafsteins advice is to lay the 6 or 8 for one roll. Is that the be all and end all of lays?

    That would be referred to as, an all day lay.

    Since all Lay bets pay TRUE odds with a house vig. 5% of winnings, it would not matter what number you choose "Odds".

    The question needs to be decided by what it is you are looking for in the bet:
    1. Most likely bet to win........ Lay the 4 or the 10. These numbers have a 3 out of 36 chance of hitting and therefore are the least likely to lose.
    2. Win the most money..........Lay the 6 or the 8. These numbers hit more often, but they pay a lot better than 1 to 2.
    3. Something in the middle.....Lay the 5 or the 9. These numbers hit in between the 4/10 and 6/8 and the pay is in the middle as well.

    When you make a Lay bet as a single bet, you must consider your Risk tollerance (how often hit) and your amount/win ratio (how much you win for your bet).

    A. Low risk, low reward 4 or 10
    B. Medium risk, medium reward 5 or 9
    C. Higher risk, higher reward 6 or 8

    Experimenting with Heavy's bullfrog. After a bullfrog I will move my lay over to it. Double bullfrogs seem like a rare event. I will test it.
