X has 3 inner points, can make the fourth and O is on the bar. I think the chance of winning a gammon is 25-30 percent. All this is enough to double the cube.
From O’s point of view: the distribution of X in the outfield isn't perfect. His homeboard is more powerful than X has and these two factors may be a valid reason to accept the cube. I am not sure.
But if my opponent is better than me, I wouldn't hesitate to take it OTB. Because there is a very volatile position.

X has ten checkers in the zone and has escaped both of his back
checkers. He has a huge 30-pip lead. I would have dropped this
for money, and at 3-away/3-away the drop seemed even clearer.
But XG takes this! I was amazed. It seems that O's strong board
gives her just enough counterchances. X might not clean up his
blot on the 4pt, and even if he does, he'll be a bit cautious of
hitting loose because a return hit could turn the game around.
