There are some things people Do like to do, and other things people Don't like to do. For most, having sex can probably be put into the Do column and paying taxes into the Don't. Of course there are exceptions to all things, and we might hear about some of these. At craps, players like the Do mostly because, when they win, they win more wagering less. The fact that 90 something percent of players at the "typical table" are playing the Do bears this out. On the Do, the player is NEVER the favorite if he avoids the contract bets. Depending on house rules concerning payment of vig on buy bets, the place bettor who also dabbles in the field and other mid table finds himself fighting a large house edge with his play. Even the contract bettor is the favorite for only one roll. If his wager doesn't win immediately, it either loses immediately or converts to a 1:2, 2:3 or 5:6 underdog. Further hindering the Do player is that fact that when playing multiple wagers, they can be and often are all lost on one roll of the dice. On the Don't, the player finds himself heavy underdog on that first roll, but on that first roll only. Getting through the one roll risk establishes him now as the 2:1, 3:2 or 6:5 favorite over the house. If he wants to get out behind a second number, he has the same one roll disadvantage before possessing another favored bet. Having favored wagers is no guarantee of success, because numbers do come back, and when this happens the favored bet is a loser. Because getting behind any number makes the player favored, odds to be laid to provide for a bigger win must be more than the amount to be won. Skilled Don't players are not afraid to lay odds. They know some bets will be lost, some days will be losers, and that overall, just like the Do player, they are underdog. This is the design of the game. Even so, it seems as if the Don't player has a better chance of winning. If for no other reason, he will be less likely to have a s many bets in action as the typical Do player.
