If you got into a situation where you had all the numbers covered with pass/come with max odds but haven't gotten any hits yet, would you:

A. Continue putting come bets/max odds
B. Let then come down after each hit

C. Switch to the Dark Side on the theory that IF I encounter that dreaded "7" at least I'll make something back and that it is more likely that as my numbers start to hit they will hit only once and I will profit from the bet having hit and from the subsequent, eventual 7 which will take place with no repeats that would knock down my new Don't Come Bets.

I just toss out another come bet in that situation--7/11, I win; 2/3/12, I lose...if a 4,5,6,8,9,10 is rolled, I am "off and on" that number.

You could also skip the come bet and see if a couple of numbers hit to collect something before betting again, but I don't usually have that much control since my playing time is limited.

This situation is the easiest. The only way you lose your come bet is with 2/3/12, so put another one out there.

If the concern is that you have too much out there, you should have asked that question back when you had 3-4 come bets out without hitting one.


If you miss that come bet and REALLY REALLY want to be on that number, just go with a place bet. Yes it is worse odds, but you will never play long enough for those %s to matter enough. Always doing place I think you would notice, 1 in 20 or 30 times wouldn't matter.

They are just like PassLine Bets. What bets would you make at craps if not a Come Bet?

All the numbers? Something tells me you mean you've gotten hits along the way but now you are in this situation having built up to it. In any case, personally I think you are dangerously over-exposed. I would take down all my odds bets, maybe keeping max odds on a favorite number. If you are lucky enough to find the situation improving to having 3-4 numbers going [at most] then you could go back to putting up some odds.

About the only time I would find myself close to trying to attain the condition you describe is betting with a shooter that can seem to do no wrong. Even then, it's hard to keep 6 numbers covered without placing some. Numbers hit, you replace the same number; come-out 7s are rolled, too, typically, returning your odds. So even a shooter that is on a monster roll seldom gets you to 6 numbers to try to hit [assuming you arent placing any]. But if you get there, protect yourself [I suppose going down to single odds is another way]

Pass Line bets, Odds. Maybe a buck on the Fire Bet, but don't tell The Wizard!
