    Pallets are better, but right on the slab is OK if it stays dry.

    Pallets will allow more air to circulate, which will hasten drying.

    Pallets would be a PITA to walk on compared to a nice smooth concrete slab. I usually have some low grade wood that I put down for the first course so I don't care that it isn't quite as dry as the stuff above it. The bottom course also tends to keep the insects happy.
