## craps house edge

I PLAY THE DON'T PASS AND FIELD ON THE COME OUT ROLL. I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH THE HOUSE EDGE IS ON THIS BET. 2 AND TWELVE PAY DOUBLE ON MOST TABLES I PLAY.

The house edge on the don't pass is 1.36%, and the house edge on a short-pay field bet is 5.56%. To figure out your average house edge, do this:

(((average don't pass bet*.0136)+(average field bet*.0556))/average total bet)

Most people will bet more on the line than in the field, so I'd ballpark your house edge at about 2.5-3%.

THANKS. GOING FOR OUR YEARLY TRIP AND HAVE DECIDED THAT THE BEST PLAY FOR ME TO HANG ONTO MY MONEY FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE WOULD BE TO PLAY THE DON'T PASS FOR 25 AND PLACE THE 6 AND 8 FOR 24. PROBABLY BETTER THAN THE DON'T PASS AND FIELD BET. ANY THOUGHTS. NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR DICE CONTROL.

You're looking for statistical analysis to determine a house edge on both bets. I find it odd, that you care so much about the numbers, however you still make field bets. This should be pretty simple to you. The field bet is a bad bet. Don't make it.

There.

Unless you can find a joint (other than some indian casinos) that pays triple on the 2 and triple on the 12 for a Field bet. Then it is a zero house edge bet.
