TAKING ODDS

Taking Odds is a bet that is placed in conjunction with a Pass Line, Don�t Pass Line, Come or Don�t Come bet. If one of those bets has been placed and a point is established on the next roll, an Odds bet can be placed. Placing an Odds bet is the best bet on the Craps table because the House Advantage is 0%. You will not see any mention of an Odds bet on the craps table layout for this reason.

The maximum amount of an Odds bet is a multiple of the original bet placed and varies from casino to casino. �1x odds� means the maximum is equal to your original bet, �2x odds� means the maximum is equal to double your original bet , and so on. If there is not a sign at the table listing the maximum Odds bet ask one of the table crew. Since this bet has no House Advantage it is to the player�s advantage to make the maximum Odds bet, bankroll permitting.

Odds bets have no House Advantage because they pay even or �true odds�. The tables below display the probability and payoff for all Odds bets.


PASS LINE OR COME ODDS
POINT PROBABILITY PAYOUT
4 OR 10 1 IN 3 2 TO 1
5 OR 9 2 IN 5 3 TO 2
6 OR 8 5 IN 11 6 TO 5

The table below shows the House Advantage for Pass Line, Don�t Pass Line, Come and Don�t Come bets backed up with Odds bets at different levels. The House Advantage reflects the total amount bet. Remember that an Odds bet can only be placed after a Point is established so the following table does not factor in wins and loses on the initial roll.
