Casino Craps - Supplemental Bets - Odds Bets
What are Supplmental Bets - Odds Bets?
You have familiarised yourself with the commen betting options at the craps table and now you should consider odds bets. They are to be seen as secondary bets to The Pass Line bets and The Don't Pass Line bets after a winning point has been marked by the dealer.
When betting the odds with your pass line bet, you are taking the odds. When betting the odds on your don’t pass bet, you are laying the odds. Give the odds bet a try the next time you are at a Craps Table in a casino or online playing craps.
Supplemental Bets are also known as Odds bets which in a sense are like back-up bets on an existing Line bets. The odds bets are conditional in the sense that the Point or Come Point must be established. Meaning that you can NOT place the bet during the come out roll by te shooter. Moreover to place the bet you must already have a bet placed as the name states "supplemental Bets"
An odds bet will only be a winner if the corresponding Line bet wins and likewise it looses when the corresponding Line bet loses. Unlike the original Pass and Come bets, all unresolved Odds bets can be removed or modified between rolls.
What are the Supplmental Bets - Odds Bets?
The odds bets are:
Pass Odds and Don't Pass Odds bets are the two odds bets that are always resolved at the end of a round, but Come Odds and Don't Come Odds are only resolved when the Come Point or when a seven (7) is rolled by the craps shooter. As a result of that rule the bets may persist to the end of a round and as a result the bets are active during a Come Out roll.
What are the the Best Odds Bets to Place?
There are those who may disagree but from a mathematically perspective of looking at the betting option, playing the don’t pass and laying the odds will reduce the casino advantage as far as it will possibly go. Yet there are some gamblers that do not bother laying the odds and risking some money.
By laying the odds against the six (6) or eight (8) you will get the best payoff. This is simply true because the six (6) and eight (8) are likeliest to roll after the seven (7) and not before it.
Payout on the Odds Bets to Keep in Mind?
There are some importan tthings to bear in mind. There is a difference between the pay-outs on Pass & Come Odds and Don't Pass & Don't Come Odds.
So for example:
Lets say the point is a Five. A winner that placed 12 dollars pass odds bet will get a payout of 3:2 and he or she will receive 30 dollars (12 bet plus the 18 won)
Lets say the point is a Five. A winner that placed 12 dollars Don't pass odds bet will get a payout of 2:3 and he or she will receive 20 dollars (12 bet plus the 8 won)
