Default Beating the Pair Square side bet.

Is it possible to beat the Pair Square side bet with a regular counting strategy?

(any pair pays 10:1, suited pair pays 15:1)

from other sources it looks like the house edge is around 6-10%

I was wondering if at a particularly high count (or low count) would this bet become advantageous? Or would the count at which this side-bet become worthwhile be unobtainable.... The reason I ask is because at several high counts i have received pairs of 10s Faces or As, but don't know if this can be exploited. My feelings are that such a huge edge is not going to be overcome with a straight count... but what do i know!

thoughts/inklinks? thanks!

Sorry to resurrect a very, very old thread like this--but I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on software that would be useful for examining these type of problems? Doing hand calculations it looks like there is a point where it is advantageous, but I was hoping there would be something where I could see what % of the time you actually have an advantage at each count. Anyone know of anything that could aid in this?
