Yes, you can and you should. The concept you're describing is called implied odds (the estimated profit you'll make if you make your hand). Notice is a much less concrete value as it is an estimation of whether your opponent will call when the draw comes and the amount he'll be willing to pay. There's also the concept of reverse implied odds which are the ...

I decided to have a go at answering this myself. The situation is you against one other player who has a made hand, and you have N outs.

I only read a part of your question but you can indeed call when odds are not in favor. Implied pot odds is what it's called. Basically you calculate that what you payed too much, you will receive back at the next street(s). An example: Hero and Villain play a pot. On the turn you have a flush draw (giving you 9 outs). This is more or less 19% chance of ...
