Pairs appear with a high frequency. Does that mean it will happen every shoe? No! But if I know where they happen with great frequency it is certainly better then guessing. 50% of the time it will be Banker pair. 45% of the time it will be Player Pairs and 5 % of the time it will be both. There are 14 hand that I bet Pairs. Even if it calls for a Banker or Player I still bet both most of the time. At 12 to 1 odds how can I go wrong. Now you my not agree with me and that is ok. I just know after 900 live baccarat shoes of documentation, it a lot better than guessing.
