I posted this question on Facebook and thought I met have better luck getting an answer here Why do some craps bettors insist on placing bets "late" (when the shooter already has the dice)? I see this frequently - usually self-placing a field bet. But also throwing in a center bet I know it is rude and against etiquette and some dealers may call a "no bet". But still, people do it regularly. Why? I'd love be to hear from these folks to understand their thought process. Or others’ theories as to why this is done.
