When I began playing craps, I always knew that hardways had a high house advantage, so I avoided them except when I was up a lot and the table was hot.
Then I started to bet the point hard if it was set hard. For example, if the eight was set with a four-four on the come out, I would bet a $5 hard eight or $5 hardways, one each, high on the eight.
Lately I have decided to hop the hardways one each on the come out roll after a front line winner (a made point or a 7 or 11 on the comeout). If I win, I take “$31 and down” and put $5 on each of the hardways, taking $7 Profit. That also allows me to have a progression that—if a hardways hit - I add $5 to each hardway and put the profit in my rack.
Any thoughts on this strategy.
