60 degree horizontal for me. Line thru is also nice, like you see on Jig X (Tournament Edge) jigs

I prefer vertical for flipping and horizontal for football jigs.

Vertical vs Horizontal can be interpreted as position of the eye on the nose vs top of the jig head and also as in line with the hook vs perpendicular to the hook.

Regardless, this is what I prefer

(eye on top of jig head) --Falls more vertically. Typically will stand up better and can be dragged along rocks with less damage to the line.
