Beating the Lucky Pairs Baccarat Side Bet: Update #2

In this post I described beating the Lucky Pairs (LP) baccarat side bet. The method I described was called “Targets and Weights.” In that post, I considered the case when a pair pays 11-to-1, with a baseline house edge about 10.36%.  For many ordinary players, that edge is too high for them to be interested in playing LP. As a result, the wager is underutilized. One option to get more action is to increase the payout to 12-to-1.
