Pass line is not the best bet. This is a fallacy. Yes, the odds are true odds and the best odds in the game, but if the probability of that bet winning is low, then what good is the true odds payout? not very.
If you are just learning the game and want to play it simple with either pass line or don't pass... I would play the dont pass. Im confident you will see more crap outs than points made. Just getting past the initial come out roll is the challenge. You can protect yourself with a small yo bet in case an 11 is thrown.
House edge, easy numbers, hard ways, yo elevens, DI's, it all boils down to preference. what you like to bet/play. Every casino game has a best bet but doesn't mean that people will play it.
Bet minimum on Pass line & minimum on Don't Pass along with 1.00 chip on TWELVE. after a number is established put MAX ODDS behind your pass line bet.
Don't worry about any other bets on the table.
I like to lay all the numbers on come out roll then take them down. If seven comes, I get paid.
Yeah, yo bets are the key to making money at craps.
What's your 3 team teaser for tonight?
Come on, the best bet are the aces and the midnights, especially when the payouts are 30 for 1.
Especially when you know a 2 or 12 are coming!
