As Neil said, "BG can be simple" sometimes. Review all plays and count the ways each gives you to complete a six prime. That's gold here. Count the ways each gives you to make a 5 point board. Notice that if you don't make the bar point now, you have few ways to make it later. And finally notice that your back checkers are not seriously blocked, but on the 21 point, with the 7 point made, are blocking a safe entering play if Opponent enters with 1-5, 3-5 or 2-5.
