First I'm a newbe at the dark side.....but I have often wondered that If your paid even money on your don't come bet and your lay bet pays less then even money why not put all your money on your don't pass or don't come on the come out roll ?? I would like a number cruncher chime in and show me..I'm guessing it has to do with your chances on the come out roll ?? Six combos of 7's that can beat you,... 1 combo (either 2 or 12 depending on the house rules) that pushes..... 3 combos that win even money (1-2, 2-1, 6-6, (or 1-1 depending on house rules again)) and 24 point numbers, so it looks like to me that I have a 27-6 chance of keeping my money in play and 24-6 (or 4-1) chance of getting on a point, it just doesn't make sense to me to lay odds when I can get even money for the same amount, what am I missing ???
