placing multiple come bets is like playing "speed craps" -- you are getting more pass line bets in at once, instead of one per shooter.


Some golfers do 18 holes each morning: six holes with three golf balls.

A come bet is nothing but an opportunity to keep making new passline bets as if it really was a new shooter.

On-edit: Perhaps the desire to make come bets is an example of "The Buzz" affecting a gambler who might otherwise just wait around for his passline bet to be resolved and then make another one. Gamblers want action. In the days when crap games were in back alleys until a cop came by, it might have made sense to have alot of action.

I personally play the pass line with full odds and I am always on the come with full odds. This is because I crave the action! I estimate that I get the same number of total bets as I would if I play 4 times as long.

I generally play $5 PL + $5-10 odds and place the 6-8 for $6. That's all my bankroll allows. But that's okay for me. It's less things for me to keep track of.

That's a great stategy to keep HE to the minimum!
I used to be an action-junky myself (pass with 3/4/5, Place the 6/8, Buy the 4/10)
However I've learned to keep my action on the LOWEST HE before anything else...
I'll start out with $5 on the pass with 3/4/5, if the shooter makes the point, I'll double it; another point, it goes to $15...
Possiblities:
4/10: $5 + $15 = $35 total --> $10 + $30 = $70 total --> $15 + $45 = $105 total
5/9: $5 + $20 = $35 total --> $10 + $40 = $70 total --> $15 + $60 = $105 total
6/8: $5 + $25 = $35 total --> $10 + $50 = $70 total --> $15 + $75 = $105 total

I'll get a $60 average for this play. Start with a $500 bankroll.

I hate to bring you fella craps players some bad news: It is impossible to have good results with multiple bets per roll whether place betting or come betting, the ole ugly is just too prevalent. Make one good bet(pass-odds is my favorite), design your betting scheme, and stick to it. If you play this game long enough, you will learn the futility of multiple bets, and that is how they get us with all the bets offered which is quite ingenious.
