If you knew you were not going to get hit, you would go 7/2, 7/1 since is much smoother for the long run.

While you don't want to get hit, it is not like the game is over .... so I would stuff it in there. 7/2, 7/1

I was inclined to play safe. I suppose the 7/2 7/1 is slightly superior because of the increase in gammons.
