How do the casino workers explain this? When a bettor puts down a $1 bet on 8 for 1 and is expecting to get $8 back and instead gets $7? My friends don't know how to play and could think I'm trying to juice them.

They get $8 back. But you keep their $1 bet. They get $8 “for” $1.

Or do $8 to $1 if you want. Nothing wrong with running a zero house edge home game.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Here is a question.

Does the home team have any advantage at all is USFL games? My assumption would be that they do not but I am also not familiar with all of their rules.

Sorry. I saw home game listed and thought it was the sports thread.

I've seen some creative dealer responses to this, particularly when it's not busy.

The best was, after the player complained, the dealer said, "Oh, OK. Put the $7 back down."

The dealer then takes the $7 back, adds $1 from the bank, and pushes the $8 to the player who picks it up. Then the dealer takes the $1 bet and puts it into the bank. "Yep. That's $8 won FOR the $1 bet."

Then he says to the player, "Did you want that bet again?" Player nods yes. "OK, drop $1." Dealer takes the $1 and puts the bet back up.

"OK, you're back to $7. (Pause for it to sink in.) And since most people do want the bet back up, we just do it automatically. And don't feel bad. Lots of players have to have that explained to them the first time."
