Why Odds Bets are Good for You

The greatest advantage for free odds is that the house does not have an edge over you for this bet, meaning the casino doesn't make any profit over you for this bet. If the casinos had only odds bets, they would quickly run out of profits and go broke. Odds bets are one of the biggest advantages of online Craps.

This bet is the only bet, not only for craps but for all casino games, there the odds of winning the bet equal to the payoff. The more money you place on odds bets, the better your chances of gaining a larger profit.

How Much to Wager in Odds Bets

Always make sure you place the right amount of odds bet. It is extremely important that your bet is calculated so the payoff is even. If the point is set on the 5, and the odds are 3 to 2 against you, your bet should be a multiple of 2.

For example, if you place 10$ you will get 15$, but if you bet 5$ you will not get 7.5$, the house only pays you in even numbers. Instead you will get 7$.

Double Odds and Three Unit Bets

Sometime online craps casinos offer you the chance to place a double odds bet after the pass line. If for example you placed a 10$ bet and the point is 6, you can place a double odds bet of 20$.

Another option casinos sometimes allow is the three unit bet. This means that if you bet in three-unit increments (15$, 30$...), you can place odds bets larger than your pass line bet.
