If you had a gun to your head and were forced to use a betting system, which one would you pick? Why is this betting system your favorite?

You gotta give us more info. What are my goals with this system? Would I have to use it forever? What is my starting bankroll? Etc.... But- home underdogs in the NFL.

I would bet all of my money on the absolute worst bet on whatever table at which I was playing. That would get that gun away from my head as quickly as possible.

Yes, it was illustrated by Robert Downey, Jr. in Kiss, Kiss, Bang Bang.

System?
Craps: Basic Strategy is PassLine, Two ComeBets... odds on everything as soon as possible usually 2x or 3x, particularly if I am "under the gun" (though that has a different meaning at poker).

Blackjack: Ultimate Simplified Basic Strategy as modified by Stage One Whims unless that cute Tray Lizard has visited too often and my modifications to Basic Strategy get too absurd.

Baccarat: Mr. Banker!!

I'd used the system for roulette as expoused by Mike Caro...
"Then you can admire the real gambler, who has neither eaten, slept, thought nor lived, he has so smarted under the scourge of his martingale, so suffered on the rack of his desire for a coup at trente-et-quarante" - Honore de Balzac, 1829

Craps. I wrote about this system over a year ago.


Wait for a number. Bet 8 unit place bets on the inside numbers. As soon as one of them hit, drop down to 2 units on each inside number. Whenever one hits, press it 1 unit.

I'm actually looking for a casino with $1 craps, so the inside place bet unit is $1.25 and $1.50, and properly pays $1.75 per unit. That way, I can have a bankroll large enough to even try this, and afford a two-roll shooter or two at the start.

I.E. Start with $44 inside, which pays $14 when any hit, then drop down to $11 inside, which pays $3.50 when it hits, then start pressing.

Every shooter that hits at least one inside number is profitable. But you'll get beat badly with those immediate 7-outs.


Will it work? No. After all, no system 'works'. But if I were forced to use a system, that's the one I'd go with.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Perhaps I should edit my original post.

The members of the WoV forum tend to be a very smart group of people who understand the math behind the games and understand that "systems" are not profitable in the long run.

Therefore, my question should be, if you were forced choose a "system" to recommend to a person, which one would you choose and why. If you currently have a certain system that you currently play, why have selected that system?

I think it all depends on what you consider a System and what game you're playing. I would go with whatever betting strategy that statistically is proven to preserve my cash for the longest amount of time.

(Edit) and that's why I play penny slot machines! ;)

You would also need a $1 craps table that had 25 cent checks.
I have never seen one. They must be rare.

The Bonanza Casino in Reno, had, for years up to 2001, a 25 cent game with 25 cent checks.
I would have to call them and see if the table min is still 25 cents. I doubt it.
Sure fun to buy-in for $20. Lots of fire power!

I would follow DJ with his craps betting system, only adjustment, less units on the 5 and 9 and more on the 6&8 place bets since the HA is lower and the 6&8 roll more than the 5&9.
