The house likes that I put 30 on my odds bets that pay 35. They pay 7 to 6 on the 6&8. I like to play the 6&8 even if the point is not a 6 or 8. That has been my style. The pass line only pays even.
Even if the point is established on a 4, a $25 pass line bet only pays $25 if a 4 comes in. If I put a $25 bet on the number 4 it pays $50 minus the vig ($47).
I'll try the wizards trainer to see how it is different if I don't play the numbers and play the come line to see how that pays out.
So you've got the PL bet that only has odds if the point is 6 or 8, and if it isn't, you make a Come bet and hope that point becomes 6 or 8 and if it is you put odds on it. I kind of like this for some reason, but not your reason. I'd likely use it at a $5 table with 5X odds, though I might be allowed up to 10X odds..
PS: $25 odds on the 6 or 8 pays $30, and $30 odds pays $36. Odds bets are in multiples of $5, except on Bubble Craps.
$30 PB 6 or 8 pays $35. PB 6 or 8's are bet in multiples of $6, except on Bubble Craps.

The table minimum I play is usually 15. What do you mean by 5X odds, though you may be allowed up to 10X ? They let me play the numbers 6&8 even if they do not become the point. We must be talking different places with different rules and I've never heard of Bubble Craps.
I have found I can hit the 6 or 8 multiple times before a 7out but it sometimes happens after a point is made and my bets are off.
Its that simple to me. The terminology mixes me all up...
