Can anybody give me advice on what to do if you have genuinely found hidden knowledge like this: a flat bet "system" that dents the house edge? An obvious idea would be to keep playing with it to try to find a way to actually overcome the edge. Another idea would be to turn over the information to the CIA or something, because it is not supposed to be done and could be very valuable for other things besides gambling.

If the CIA is watching you play, maybe you'll hear some gambling songs on the car radio when you drive home from the casino. But I usually hear Smoke On The Water as soon as I start the car to go the store so I never get near the gambling house.

Contact a mathematician because it's absolutely certain you've made a mistake in you calculations or thinking.

I would call the CEO or General Manager of one of the large casino companies. Ceasars, Stations, Wynn, etc. Let them know what you've stumbled upon. They will probably be willing to offer you a large sum of money on the spot for a non-disclosure deal. That's nothing for them and will keep them in business in the long run.

This is a really great idea. It is some of the best insight I've ever heard in all the years I've been coming to wizardofvegas. Las Vegas odds that often imply big road underdogs in MLB have a 20% of scoring first and losing the game, when the true odds are closer to 30%, is definitely very valuable information the CIA could be using.
