Blue on roll, cube action?

Too good to double?

If cubed, White can use his free drop (which looks like a good idea here). Little is gained for Blue, therefore, when he doubles. Blue will still have to win two games in a row to win the match.

That train of thought leads me to wonder whether Blue is too good to double here. White has three blots scattered about, and there should be some gammons in the offing. I think I would roll.
