Playing the game from either direction on the line surrenders 0.014xyz (1.4xyz%) to the other side. This is the basis of MINIMAL casino expectations of success. I have two questions regarding this fact of life at the craps table. Obviously, these numerical expectations go WAY up when other of our "favorite wagers" are factored into the calculation. Only odds reduce the 1.4%, and there are only four bets on the table that allow them. Does the difference in calculated probability for success for the Do (0.49292929...) and the Don’t (0.493181818...) make any difference to the player? In Percentage against this is 50.707 % vs. 50.682%. Doesn’t seem like much, but it is something. Secondly, concerning making points. We all know the 6:5, 6:4 and 6:3 probabilities of rolling the seven before any of the paired point numbers. They are based on simple math and on the construction of the dice. Even though we often state otherwise, we know that the dice have memory – this is the basis of the game. Sevens roll the most and 2’s and 12’s the least. When the seven hasn’t come up in a long while, we know it is overdue. Nevertheless, I’m betting bigger and bigger as the seven stays away, as long as I’m connecting on come numbers, if not the pass. Nothing wrong with a seven at the right time either. I never let cumulative probability expectations affect my bets – they are always working, unless I’ve got more than one come bet working and the pass has just been made. What do you guys who regress in order to protect winnings think about the cumulative calculations? Do they have any effect on your play, or is your play a fall-back to the often heard, “every rol is a 1 in 36 affair”?
