I don't think paying now and getting away with it gets you home safe often enough. His position is also quite strong with easy potential to make the bar quickly and get extremely strong. I'm playing safe and hoping for the best later. You also still have 2 spares in the outfield so you should have several rolls to try to find doubles.
