i would say black jack because - as far as i can tell - gives you a 50/50 chance
Statistically, blackjack and craps give you the best odds to win money. That said, I haven't seen any casino game where the player has even (i.e.: 50/50) chances of winning. The house will always have at least a small built-in advantage, otherwise it's not worth their time to host and operate the table.
Blackjack is probably the most skill-involved game you can pick due to the options you have as a player (doubling down, splitting, etc). Also, if you are a skilled player and understand how card counting works, it's easier to win money in a reliable manner with well-timed big bets as compared to any other given casino game.
