I was told that the odds of making your pass line bet after the come out roll is only 60%. Maybe one of the math Gurus on this site can shed some light on that number.



Whoever 'told' you that knows nothing about odds. Try not to speak with that person again.
There are 3 types of points possible.
A. 4 or 10
B. 5 or 9
C. 6 or 8
You will make a 4 or a 10 3 out of 36 a 7 6 out of 36
So either point 4 or 10 is 33.33%
Without showing you the math---
Point 5 or 9 is 40%
Point 6 or 8 is 45.45%

4 or 10 is the point 25% of the time
5 or 9 is the point 33.33% of the time
6 or 8 is the point 41.67% of the time So....

25 x 33.33= 8.33%
33.33 x 40 = 13.33%
41.67 x 45.45 = 18.94%
Add em up= 40.6% (not exact due to rounding)
So... you will make a point 40.6% of the time.
Maybe your friend said the odds of NOT making the bet...
