Great question.

The higher the odds and the greater the number of permutations, the greater the likelihood of PUBLIC ERROR - which is what fuels overlay.

But there is a point where the complexity of the permutations overcomes the ABILITY TO COMPUTE/RECOGNIZE those overlays.

Also, as the perms increase, other issues arise such as...
** Lower hit rates
** Less consistency
** Bigger bankroll needs
** more along these lines.

Balancing all of that, led me to EXACTAS from a practical POV.
