That's a horrible plan. You should pick black.

If you want a real plan, put it all on green. You can take pay your 2L and 3L plus a 10 year vacation. Thank me later!

Indeed!
It appears I've gaffed and posted a picture of an American wheel, but you're right, the odds of red on a European wheel are marginally better.

Yes, but the color you pick is immaterial. Red or Black, your chances of winning are 18/38 in American roulette, 18/37 in European Roulette.
Either way, your color hits, and you walk away doubled up. Promptly, go to a bank and settle up with Uncle Sam, then pay your tuition before the deadline and enjoy your just rewards.

Actually, If you bet red on a Euro wheel, your odds are marginally better (1.352% house edge vs. approx 1.4% house edge in craps).
Not gonna argue with the wheels in Vegas though.

You gotta take the odds along with that pass line bet. It reduces the house edge even further since the odds bet actually has no house advantage (only place in a casino where the payout is 100% equal to the odds of it happening). With 2X odds the combined house advantage is 0.606%. With 3X odds it drops to 0.417%.

Stay away from the middle of the table though.... that's where the sucker bets are.

Actually that is not true. In PaiGow poker if you bank you get the house's odds on the hands you bank. So your odds are better than the house because you win copy hands. However you have to pay 5% commission on the winnings. But If we are talking about odds only then PaiGow is great. Tiles too.

I will admit that I didn't know that. I've never played pai gow because I learned at a young age that if you don't REALLY understand all the rules to a game, you don't play it for money :)

In my book though, if you have to pay a 5% commission on your winnings then that needs to be factored into the odds.

Absolutely, but since you only pay the commission when you win it needs to be calculated seperately. I think you can find promotional no-commission tables in off-strip casinos. It is also the least volatile game in the casino. It pushes more than any other game. Really enjoyable way to kill some time over some free drinks. Craps is too volatile and fast paced. Plus you have to stand (I have bad knees).
