One way is to use two separate decks, thus there is no effect of removal. This is because the player is still betting the odds and it still counts as a bet even if it is returned as a push. Finally, the expected return is the expected win divided by the expected bet: 0.

The first card drawn can never be the double card. This is the probability that by looking back at old rolls you will find a 4 before a 7. That is a good question. Another way is to have a 7-card deck, featuring the numbers 1 to 6, plus a seventh "double" card. So the house edge is However you have to compare that to the probability of rolling a losing combination. Thanks for your kind words. It is obviously more fun to go with the crowd than against it. However if you define the house edge as expected loss to bets resolved then turning the odds off on a come out roll does indeed increase the house edge. You will always have a bet on the pass or come. So, I'm afraid I wouldn't be gracing Atlantic City with my presence much any longer. The average number of rolls per shooter is 8.
