the main thing here is to avoid doubles that force us to crunch. 20/13 means we're in a little bit of trouble if we shake 33 or 11, but unless we roll consecutive crunchers we can easily survive either of these.  20/14, 4/3 is probably almost as good.  The others give us the possibility of nightmare rolls.

All that said, I doubt there's more than ~.03 EMG between the candidate rolls. BUt no need ot give away jokers when we don't have to.  20/13 FTG
