I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the whole game of Craps. I think I've made progress but still have some questions. Question #1. Should you or should you not take odds on the Don't Pass line? I can see taking the odds when you play the Pass Line as you are getting back more than you bet. (Well, if you win!) But for the Don't Pass - you have to bet more money than what you will win. So if I'm going to play Don't Pass, wouldn't I be better off to just up my regular bet and forget about the odds? Question #2. I see that most players at the Craps table are actually players in that they shoot the dice. But recently while in Granville PA, I noticed quite a few people who refused to shoot and didn't play the Pass or Don't Pass. They waited until a point was established, and then they started to put down place bets. I can see their stance - instead of wasting money on Pass or Don't Pass (and risk losing it), they just make place bets and when they feel the luck of the Shooter is about up, they call in their bets. (I have to say, some of them seemed to do pretty good.) Usually when I walk up to a Craps table, I buy my Chips and usually watch each player throw before I actually start betting. I'm a believer in that you can do better if you attempt to control the dice rather than just pick them up, shake them up in your hand and throw. Once I've seen how everyone throws, I start betting. If they seem to take their time and set the dice - I usually play the Pass Line. If they just grab the dice and throw, or grab them and kiss them and throw, or grab them and roll them around in their hand before throwing I usually play the Don't Pass line. Looking forward to some input. Thanks!
