That's a slow table especially with open spots but there are slow tables. If that's accurate and this means you're playing with 2 or 3 other people it comes down to their betting patterns and how many spins you have to cover how much basically. 5 people playing the outside or only a few numbers is better than 2 or 3 doing the same thing you plan on doing (covering every number w/ a qualifier). Are they covering every number/how many numbers are they covering? What's the table minimum? Can you reliably bet less than $1/# on certain spins? Do you think the jackpot comes up about once an hour?
You've just got to accurately fill in the variables. Once you do that it's just action you put in *-.027 and then adding in your expected share of the jackpot (you basically just need jackpot size, chance of hitting it...which is 1/37 if they're not cheating you, and expected percentage...which you can get pretty close pretty quickly just by filling in how many numbers they usually cover).
