The Missing Outside Bet
This strategy ignores the green zone, as most strategies do. Look at the end of the table where you see three zones: 1 to 12, 13 to 24, and 25 to 36. These are the outside bets the strategy uses. The idea is to watch the game for a while, recording which 12-number zone the ball lands in. When you get to minimum consecutive number of results that exclude one of the three zones, place you bet in the “missing zone”. The strategy then holds that you should increase your bet each time you lose. If you think this sounds familiar, it is. It’s a variation on the Martingale Strategy.
The missing outside bet strategy is based on the player’s fallacy. The fallacy assumes that random chance favors any result not realized in recent plays. Regardless of what happened on the previous spin of the wheel, the odds on the next spin are exactly the same. On a 37-number wheel, the odds of getting a red result are still 18 out of 37, or about 48.6%. It doesn’t matter if black came up on the ten previous spins or red came up on the ten previous spins.
