Normally I'm a come better, however I've been thinking about this. If at a $5 table with 2x odds and I have a come bet on the 4, I will have $15 on it ($5 bet plus $10 odds). If the 4 hits, I will win $25. If I were to just place a bet on the 4 for $15 and it hits, I would win $27. This is the case for all points, where the payout would be higher for place bets than for come bets. My question is what is the advantage, if any of making come bets? I realize that if you put enough odds down on the come bets you would get a bigger payout than betting the same amount as a place bet, but that doesn't happen until you put down about 10x odds, which strip tables usually don't offer. I also realize that with come bets you have the opportunity to win on a 7 or 11, but you also can lose with a craps. Sorry if this doesn't make sense, let me know if you need me to clarify anything. It just seems logically that placing bets on points nets you slightly higher wins than come bets, even with odds.
