It might make sense if the dealer's upcard is 2-T.

Keep BJ, Dealer gets 10 (result: push)

Vs.

Double down on BJ:

9/13 * 2 bets won when dealer gets non-10 = +1.38461538

4/13 * 2 bets lost when dealer gets 10 = -0.615384615

= +0.769230765

Conclusion: When playing against European No Hole Card, Double

If you know you'll get a 10 because it has been exposed and the** dealer says that the 10 will be the next card**, you're sitting at 3rd base with a blackjack. Is it better to double down your blackjack and take the 10? Or should you just take the automatic 3:2 payoff? Let's assume that you can't get that 10 on the next hand.

2 * 0.88 + 0 * 0.12 = 1.76

A 1.76 return is better than a 1.5 return, so the mathematically correct play is to double. There are other non-mathematical factors to consider before making the play.
