There was a point of discussion on another thread concerning multiple odds in craps, and the seeming difficulty of winning money with mere double odds. http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88987 Not to criticize anyone’s method of play, but is 10X odds really such an advantage over double odds that they can’t be recommended? Let’s think for a minute: House advantage – combined pass line bet w/ double odds: .61% House advantage – combined pass line bet with 10X odds: .18% So, the posters are suggesting that it’s a wise decision to have to bet FIVE TIMES the bankroll to reduce the house edge by less than one half of one percent? Really? Might it not be more prudent to take double odds and be at the table five times longer in order to be around with money in play when a hot shoot does show? Just sayin’. I realize it's a matter of each player's individual style, bankroll, and comfort level, but I don't think that the player who consistently takes double odds is in any way deficient in his or her play. Now, here’s something that all crapshooters ought to be able agree on: Sam Grafstein points out in his classic The Dice Doctor, that multiple odds are a definite advantage to the COME bettor, because they are OFF on the come out roll and can’t be lost! (Have you ever seen this point in any other book on craps? Me neither!) I know that if I were a 10X odds bettor, I’d certainly take that advice to heart. BTW: The Dice Doctor is available at amazon.com or the Gambler’s Book Club and has simply the best advice possible of all crapshooters.
