If you're playing at a standard American table, with the 0 and 00 and no surrender, then all your bets will give the house the same advantage of 5.26%. That is, except for the five-number wager (0, 00, 1, 2 and 3) which we don't advise making.

The higher the odds, the less likely you'll win. The lower the odds, the more often you'll have wins. Thus, if you bet only on single numbers as straight-up bets, you'll get 35-1 for a win, but the odds are 37-1 against this happening.

On the other hand, if you bet on the even-money choices, the odds against winning on these are only 20-18 against. You have 18 numbers working for you, but 20 against you, including the 0 and 00. Obviously you will theoretically win 18 out of 38 times, much better than 1 out of 37 times when betting a straight-up number.

However, the payoff is much less, only even-money. Therefore, you must use your discretion when making bets. Are you the type that wants to take a shot at a big payoff, or do you want to conserve your betting capital and hope to get a little ahead? It's your choice; the odds are the same as far as a house percentage goes.

There are ways to compromise. You can make six-number bets and cover a large variety of numbers and still get a good payoff. You can bet a key number, and bet it straight up, surrounding it with corner and trio bets. All kind of possibilities are available at the roulette table. Again, the choice is yours.

When playing at a table that allows surrender, then by all means concentrate on the even-money betting propositions. They cut the house edge in half, and why not take advantage of this? The same holds true when betting in a European game. Bet on the even-money choices. You get a second chance at winning back your bet when a 0 shows. And the house edge on this bet is down to 1.35%.
