A player has more betting options in craps than any other common casino game. With all these bets it can be confusing where to put your money down. The best thing to remember is that craps is all about two little dice. Because of this the game becomes a simple matter of probability. This course will break down craps odds for you to help you make an educated decision on how to play the game. Basically craps odds come down to the probability of rolling one number before rolling another number.
The table below displays the craps odds for craps play in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and most American casinos.
The table below shows odds that are different in British casinos. British casinos are tightly regulated and pay better craps odds for some bets.
|Craps Bet||True Odds||Pay-off||House Edge %|
|6 or 8||10 to 1||19 to 2||4.55|
|4 or 10||8 to 1||15 to 2||5.56|
|Place Bets – 4 or 10||2 to 1||19 to 10||3.33|
|2 craps or 12 craps||35 to 1||33 to 1||–|
Avoid craps tables that bar 1-2 and not 1-1 or 6-6. This gives the casino a greater edge on Don’t Pass/Don’t Come bets. The house edge becomes 4.40% instead of 1.402%.
