Did someone really just say that place bets are better than come bets because you have to hit the come bet twice? Lol.
Yup, a sock puppet from another dice board did!
In Craps, if you state it that way, it usually means you have an 8:4 advantage [2 to 1 that is]. Out of 12 possible outcomes, 8 of them favor the player in that claim.Quote: klimate10
For those not in the know, a put bet is effectively a come bet + odds, but you give up the advantage of coming out, where you have 8 ways to win and 4 ways to lose.
You're not using weighted outcomes. You can't just go by the outcome alone, if you could, the 12 would be the smartest bet on the table since $1 pays $30 on a win.Quote:
Win on a put bet where the point is 6 is $143.
Win on a 6 place bet is $140.
So a put bet, which is effectively a late come bet, whereyou give up the +ev of a come out roll, has a $3 greater pay off than a place bet (on a $120 total).
Buying the 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, and 12 for $35 with vig on a win are your best bets. Beats the pass line for sure. But the pass line beats every other place bet there is. Period!Quote: WatchMeWin
Pass line is the worst bet in my opinion.
If anyone says they would rather bet $120 on a place 6 rather than $5 come + $115 odds, they don't know what the hell they're talking about.
I love craps players.
I'll exit this argument, and let others, who have more time and inclination, take over.
