Backing the Odds on the Pass Line Wager

If you play Craps, there's a good chance you know what the best bets on the Craps table are. Craps can be so intimidating to the onlooker who is unfamiliar with all the rules that most people wouldn't even dare attempt to place a bet unknowingly. Then the real question is whether you know what the best bet at the craps table is?

This is somewhat of a tricky question, because the best bet is actually not even displayed on the craps table. It is called the free odds bet, and in order to even make it, you first place the next best bet on the table - the Pass Line bet.

After making the pass line wager, if the point number gets established (meaning it did not win on lose on the come out roll), you are then permitted to make the free odds bet, also known as "backing the odds". All online casinos allow bettors to make a free odds wager up to twice the amount of the original pass liner wager.

Of course, the more you lay down on free odds, the better your return. Just be sure your bankroll is padded enough to get you through the high's and low's (and that your stakes are chosen accordingly). In other words, don't place $5 bets if this is all you can afford to get you through fifteen minutes of gambling. Remember, if your playing with optimized strategy and making free odds bets, you'll be staking $10 bets when the opportunity to back the odds arises, which it inevitably will.

And just in case you're wondering, if you back full odds on a pass line bet (after having it's point number established), you will lower the Casinos Edge from .85% down to .61%.
