Now that I think about it though, I guess your odds would be returned if they were off during the middle of a roll and someone sevened-out. But I never turn off bets during the point stage though.
It's one thing I like about the dark side. Always on!
The convention is that place bets and come point odds are off on the come-out roll, - as that is where crap players hope and expect to see the sevens occuring.
People believe that on a hot streak, the 7's do appear, it's just that the timing of them occurs during the come-out rolls (the belief being "use 'em up then!" is the hope...)
Plus, you never know if someone's trying to roll a 7 (although I am on the fence about dice control/setting and all that). At the very least, people are rooting for a 7 on the come out roll (why not root for an 11?), which creates a conflict of interest.
If you don't believe in dice setting / controlled shooting, then is there any realy difference between trying to roll a come out 7 and merely rooting for it?
There is no difference in trying to roll a 7 than in rooting for it or in rooting for someone else to roll a 7. Your whooping, hollering, and incantations will have no effect on whatever number you or anyone else rolls. None whatsoever. Your holding your hands in some special way will have no effect on what number is rolled, irrespective of whether it is you or someone else holding the dice.Quote: DJTeddyBear

Nothing is sweeter than a hit on one of your working bets on the come out roll, and nothing is more painful than a winner seven :) :(
1) it's easier: no instructions to the dealers, so less for them to do on a busy game; and
2) many shooters seem to roll a natural seven in a subsequent come out roll as part of a long string of rolls.
The one common exception I will make is I will put the 6/8 odd ON and the rest off. Some dealers will allow this, some won't. You could pick any number you wanted, I just happen to like 6 and 8.
Unlike Come bettors, Place bettors don't lose any portion of their bets if a 7 is thrown on the come out.
