Craps Betting Tips

Pass Line

This is the standard bet in the game of craps, and with a 1.41 percent house edge, it is considered by most players as one the best bets on the Crap’s layout. If you prefer a simple and easy game on the craps table, then this is the bet that you should go for and ignore the other types of bets, although you may have to learn and understand the other bet types if you want to improve your winning odds.

Field Bet

This is the ideal wager in a single roll of the craps dice at any given time. The craps player walks away with a win when the dice roll comes up with a three, four, nine, ten or eleven. Most craps tables pay double on a 2-dice roll and triple on a 12-dice roll. The craps player can make a place bet anytime.  This means that a craps player is making a wager that the Placed number will come out ahead of the 7 dice roll. A craps player loses when the dice roll comes up with five, six, seven or eight. This type of bet has a 2.77 percent house advantage and there are better as well as worse craps bets than the field bets.

Come Bet

The come bet has features that are somewhat similar to the features of a pass line craps bet, which is the wager that is placed following a come out dice roll. The dice roll that immediately follows after wagering the come bet will determine the actual value of the point that is used for the said come bet. Just like in the case of the pass line bet, a player is wagering that such point will come out before a 7 dice roll comes out. In addition to this, you have to remember that odds can also be placed on the come bets.

There is one particular point that craps players have to take into account as far as come bets are concerned. Most of the craps tables are more concerned with the point of the pass line bet. This means that in cases where the number comes out in a dice roll ahead of the point for the come bet, then that particular round will end and the crap dice is passed. However, you don’t really have to worry since the come bet will remain active and it will still apply on the succeeding dice roll.
