What are the odds if you play 0,00,1,2,10,27,28. This is the numbers to the left and right of 0/00 and 10 which is close and comes up a lot. I have good success with this. Thoughts ?

94.72%, or -5.28%. No thoughts, just facts.

In other words, the odds are the same as if you play any other seven numbers.
7/38 of the time, you win one bet, and lose the other 6.
31/38 of the time, you lose all 7.

31/38 chance that you lose 7.
7/38 chance that you win 29.

And yeah, it adds up to the same house edge as just about any roulette bet.

It's the exact same odds as playing 21,22,23,24,25,26,27 or 1,3,5,7,9,11,13, or any other 7 single numbers.

If the wheel is fair, the odds are the same playing these numbers as any seven others.
May the cards fall in your favor.

For every \$100 you bet, expect to keep \$94.72; your "profit" is -5.28.
