For someone who is a complete noob to the game, knows only the basics and is just getting started learning the complex strategies - do you think the odds of them making money in Roulette are better than in a game like Blackjack?

I think that if you are a newbie and just learning the basic strategies then you shouldn't be thinking about trying to make money yet. This is the time for you to polish your strategy first.

I think that roulette is more of a chance or luck game and if you want to make serious money then it's not where you should be looking. Of course I'm no expert so I may be wrong...

I'd heard blackjack had the best odds of any game in the casino, while roulette isn't as good. The Wizard of Odds quotes roulette's house edge as 2.7% to 5.36% against the player, while blackjack is at 0.28% to 1.5% depending on version and player's skill. If you want a game where your skill affects the outcome, blackjack is probably better.

Play French 'en prison' rules or English 'surrender rules. On the even chances the casino advantage is only 1.35%.
From "The Roulette Winner" by Lee Tutor where he describes the Casino Advantage:

"Incidentally, the casino games with the lowest house
advantage ( also called : “vig”, or “juice”), are:
Baccarat, where the banker bet carries a 1.06%
advantage to the house, and in Craps, where the “pass /
don’t pass” bets have a house edge of 1.4%. Single-zero
roulette usually gives the house an advantage of
2.7%, unless there are the “surrender”, or “en prison”
rules in force on the Even chance bets, in which case
the house advantage is only 1.35% for these bets,
which isn’t bad at all.
On a US double zero’ wheel the house edge is twice as
high as that of the single zero wheel (5.26% or more),
so avoid it!
