      You might want to look at the follwoing forms, and see what their
      density is compared with arbitrary consecutive odds.

      6n+/-1
      30n+/-1
      30n+12+/-1
      30n+18+/-1
      210n+/-1

      You might also want to take a peek at
      http://www.utm.edu/research/primes/notes/Dirichlet.html
      Which covers the density of single primes along a linear polynomial,
      but has an (unproven/statistical) analogue for twin primes.
      http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/page.php/MertensTheorem.html
      also contains some explaination of the densities that are seen.
