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.

Yeah, yo bets are the key to making money at craps.

What's your 3 team teaser for tonight?

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.

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!

Either or, I like to lay all the numbers on come out roll then take them down. If seven comes, I get paid.

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.

Yeah, and if there is no seven and you come down you've lost the vig you pay ever attempt.

Not a smart play.

It is certainly true that you can bet whatever you want that entertains you. If anybody here doesn't like it they can lump it.

However, it has to be said that much of the advice given in this thread is completely out of step with what this site is all about, IMO. I say that is opinion because the closest thing to a mission statement is "The goal of the site is to be an informative travel guide about Las Vegas" ... see the home page.

Nonetheless it was founded by someone who preaches daily about better gambling. Furthermore the members here *who last* already were on the same wavelength as that or got educated largely thanks to the site. Bad gambling ideas get shot down usually, and some idiot posting about typical foolish baccarat notions gets exposed right away. When it comes to Craps, however, those that might do the same sort of debunking seem resigned.

I can only hope that a true newbie doesn't get too misled by some of the drivel recently posted in this thread.

The best bet for craps is:
5.00 on firebet

It got rolled just the other day 6 numbers paid out to 14 shooters over 70,000.00 the craps table was naked in between the 500 chips stacks.

Before you ask, NO I was not one of them.
