"Place the six and the eight for $12 each."  My total investment: $24.  If either number is rolled before the next seven, I win $14.  If a seven is rolled first, I lose both bets.  If I hit a couple of my numbers, I deploy some of those profits as bets on the five and the nine.  Then I have five, six, eight and nine covered.  A seven still means I lose all of my chips on the table.
