    I was just doodling up a new strategy for the local 3x-4x-5x odds $10 tables around here.

    I'd have a PL Progression of 6 wins in a row that resets on 6th win or 1st PL loss (come-out rolls included). $10, $12, $15, $18, $21, $25 = $101 = 10X my minimum PL bet.

    Separately I'd have an odds progression that increased after each point is won, up to 6 in a turn then resets.
    1) 15,20,25 pays 30
    2) 18,24,30 pays 36
    3) 21,28,35 pays 42
    4) 24,32,40 pays 48
    5) 27,36,45 pays 54
    6) 30,40,50 pays 60

    Total win is $270 from odds bets with a streak of 6 wins.
    My minimum passline bet supports my highest odds wagers, so that's why I can run two de-linked progressions.

    Keep in mind that, when you increase your flat bet, you pay "tax" on the increased amount, whereas when you increase you odds bet, you do not.

    It's not clear to me how the two progressions interact. When would you ever take 30, 40, 50 on a $10 flat bet?

    I could throw four 7-winners before I establish a point. Hit my point. Throw 1 more 7-winner then reset my PL progression up $101 because I've won 6X PL bets in a row. Then I establish point #2 & win it. Hit 7-winner 4 more times because I'm sick lucky like that and the pit gets nervous. Establish point #3 and win it and reset my PL progression again and set aside a second $101 as winnings. Next come out, I establish a point on a $10 PL and taking the 4th item down on my odds list (24,32,40, pays 48), win that. Win point #5. Get a come-out 7-loser and reset my PL progression to $10, establish a point and put (30,40,50, pays 60) odds on it and win. Sock away $270 from odds bets wins. Reset odds progression for next point at (15,20,25, pays 30), PL progression continues on to $12.

    I reset progressions because it is likely I will complete a 6 win PL progression within an hour or two, whereas if I make it an 8 win progression it could take much longer than that. My odds bets are not similar to a fire bet because I don't need DIFFERENT point numbers to rack them up. Hopefully setting the dice for 6's & 8's on the come-out roll can speed up winning the odds bets, but that'd be like pulling a rabbit out of my hat or hitting four 7's in a row on two adjacent come-out rolls. I could start my turn concentrating on 7-winners & finish it concentrating on making my 6-8 come-out/point wins with odds.
