Craps Field Bet The House Edge

Dear Mark,
On a Field bet on a crap table, some casinos pay 2-1 if a 12 rolls,
others pay 3-1. How much of a difference is there in the house edge
between the two? James D.

A Field bet is a wager that the next roll of the dice would turn up a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or a 12. This one-roller pays even money for 3, 4, 9, 10, and 11, and usually pays 2:1 for either 2 or 12. Some casinos pay 3:1 for either the 2 or 12, but not both.

When the casino pays 2-1 on the 12, the house edge is 5.56 percent. If they pay 3-1, the casino advantage is reduced to 2.78 percent. Either way, both advantage levels are far higher than the 1.41 percent edge on a pass line wager or 1.4 percent on the Don't pass, so, James, I'm recommending neither.
