I will take your word for it, and did not bother to do the calculations only because it is a bet I would personally not make. Most players like to get out on the cloth. For many, the more bets the merrier. I will play an occasional (more like rare) $5 hard six & hard eight. When they lose, maybe one more of each. If they hit, the winner is always pressed heavily. Even another time if lucky enough to see a second winner. When ahead and making larger bets, I'll almost always toss $6 or maybe $15 out on the reds at come out. Since my regular play typically involves one bet with odds, maybe two when feeling a little more frisky, this is about the only "extra" excitement I get when at the table. I see no reason to greatly alter my method play. Exciting it usually is not, but I never get crushed and on occasion am on the table for a very nice winner.
