I HATE HATE HATE when people say the odds bet is the best bet on the table. The best bet on the table is the bet that is most likely to win. The odds bet might have no house advantage but is is not the most likely to win when the point is 4 or 10.

The best bet on the table is the bet most likely to win.

So odds on the don't is the best bet by probability, pass odds on six or eight would be next best.
Name another bet in the casino that has no edge and can be revoked at will.

You can't really believe this?
Simple example----
A. I'll give you 1000-1 odds on one roll of the dice for you to roll a seven.
B. I'll give you even money on one roll for black on roulette.

A is a better bet, by far, but B is more likely to win.

So the best bet would be making a Don't Pass after the point has been established...let me try that one next time I'm at the table.

you tested it on 20 sessions? Oh yes, o great one. If it worked 19/20 sessions, it must be full proof...

lol. well if you one 19 sessions in a row at \$800, that's a \$15,000 profit and if you just loss the once for \$4500 that makes your total gain \$12,000 so it certainly wouldn't hurt to continue with that strategy for at least a little longer.

You should put that statement in your tagline.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
