Craps Odds
There are many bets you can place in Craps but they generally
fall into three groups.

Basic Bets These
are the most basic and popular of the betting options and the
easiest to understand.

Odds Bets (Free Odds
Bets) These are additional bets that cane be made after the shooter
establishes a Point. Odds bets are excellent bets for the player.
You can lose more, but you can also increase your winnings. By
taking or laying these odds the player reduces the casino's advantage.

One Roll Bets These
wagers are decided on one roll of the dice. One roll, the next
roll, will decide if you win or lose.
The table below shows the number of ways any given value 2 
12 can be achieved with two dice, it is easy to see when displayed
in this way that you are more likely to roll a 7 than a 4, this
is because there are 6 possible combinations tha produce 7 as
against 3 that can produce a 4.
From the information above it is quite easy to work
out the probability of a specific number being rolled, for example
the odds on rolling a 7 are 30:6 or 5:1. To calculate the percentage
in favour of the casino on the next roll being a 7 is quite easy
the real odds are 5:1 most casinos pay 4:1 which means for a $1
the casino pays $5 ($4 plus your $1 bet) instead of $6, the casino
take is therefore $1 in $6 or 16.67%. The list below shows the odds
on throwing any single number in the next roll, remember the dice
don't have memories.
The odds of throwing a 2 or 12 are 1 in 36 or 2.8%
The odds of throwing a 4 or 10 are 3 in 36 or 8.3%
The odds of throwing a 5 or 9 are 4 in 36 or 11.1%
The odds of throwing a 6 or 8 are 5 in 36 or 13.9%
The odds of throwing a 7 are 6 in 36 or 16.7%
The table below shows typical payouts for basic bets.

The best bets can be made in casinos that allow
the greatest multiple of your original bet as a 'free odds' bet
(sometimes called odds bet). For example if you place a $10 bet
on Pass, then, depending on the casino's rules, you will be able
to place a further bet for some multiple of the original bet at
the corredt odds. The further bet doesn't affect the casino's
take on the original bet (about 1.41%) but it does reduce the
overall percentage take on th money you have staked.
