My standard opening is betting the pass line and once a number is rolled I take full odds and then place the 6 and/or 8. Is there any good reason not to place the 6 and 8 on the come-out roll along with my pass line bet? I know a seven wipes them out, but also does on every subsequent roll. I know the odds and house edge doesn't change, but it seems like if you're betting the 6/8 (or any other number for that matter) you might as well bet it all the time. Thoughts?

Because the more often you dont have them on the less money you lose. You are avoiding the HE on the rolls when they are off.

Completely understand, but I am there to gamble! I fully accept the HE and know there's no point in trying to "time" the dice. Also, it kind of feels like an advantage for the player, because the casinos automatically turn the bets off during the come-out roll. Don't they stand to make more money whenever money is in play?

I turn off place bets. I work odds about half the time. Nothing behind the latter, just sometimes I decide I would be happy getting all those odds back if a seven winner comes.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

In a way they dont want to make more money. That would eliminate big wins and make bigger loses. A game like that people would not play. It already is crazy volatile.

They make more money by keeping the game going rather than have delays over place bets being taken down and then restored. the casino's house edge applies only when the dice are being rolled' so efficiency helps the casino.

I think that most people leave the place bets off out of habit, or tradition, and not HE. The rest of the players just go with the flow, especially the less experienced players.

The part that always gives them a pause is why I win all my odds bets on a 7 come out roll because I'm on the darkside of the force.

I wait to make the place bet because coming out, the seven, the most common single roll, is a winner for you. Why place another bet that will lose when it comes? There's plenty of time to make the place bet after a point is established.
