For this discussion lets assume we know 4# that will come out in next game. What is the best way to play? we could play all possible combinations. 24x.5=$12.00 payout $2500
we could play $12.50 in box picks and not worry about order for $2500. so Which is the better play?
if you play box you won't get a tax form. you are free to pay the tax of course, but if you don't you are $750 ahead (30% tax rate assumed).
of course you could take your best shot for a straight, but if you wanted to be sure how would you play?
if you don't pay the $750 in taxes how many times can you be wrong. $750/12.5=60 so this tax could finance 60 plays at $12.5.
unless i'm playing several #'s why would I play straight?
I've been thinking about this for a few days. The logic sounds right but i keep thinking i'm missing something.
