5) The Odds Rules: When to pass and come and when not to
The rule of thumb is as follows: Put the smallest amount on the “don’t pass” or the “don’t come” and the largest amount behind it. Why? Simple. The house edge is on the don’t pass/don’t come bets but the player has the advantage on the odds bets. Next, the second rule of thumb also applied to this type of common craps bet. The house edge is on the pass line and the come line but the player again, has the advantage on the odds portion of the bets.
