How to Play Craps : How to Back Up the House in Craps


Hi, I’m Joseph Hickerson, pit manager in a
local casino and on behalf of Expert Village,
I’m going to give the introduction on how
to play casino style craps. In this clip we’re
going to talk about laying odds. Just as the
don’t pass is the opposite of pass line and
the don’t come is the opposite of the come
line, laying odds is the opposite of taking
odds. Let’s take a look. We had already established
a don’t pass bet. Eight became the number.
Now of course we don’t want eight to roll
and we can back up our bet just as we backed
up the pass line by taking odds, we’re going
to back up the don’t pass by laying odds.
Now again, they’re the opposite so on the
pass line, every nickel I bet on the six and
eight, I got paid six dollars for. Because
it’s opposite, I have to bet six dollars to
win five when I lay my odds. The five and
the nine pay the same as a black jack if you’re
taking odds and you win. So therefore, you
have to bet the bet plus half the bet to win.
Example there would be
fifteen dollars to win ten dollars. Now, you
don’t just back up your don’t pass. You can
also back up your don’t come bets. Bets that
are established behind the numbers can be
backed up with those same laying of the odds.
So just remember, just as the don’t come is
opposite of the come, don’t pass is opposite
of the pass, laying odds is just the opposite
of taking odds.
