The House Edge / Craps

Dear Mark,
What is the specific house edge when taking odds on a crap game? Tom S.

Here are the percentages in favor of the house for pass line and come bettors when you take full advantage of various odds bets.


Pass line (Come) no odds 1.41%
Single odds 0.85%
Double odds 0.61%
Triple odds 0.47%
Five times odds 0.32%
10 times odds 0.18%

Minus being a sophisticated card counter, taking odds on a pass line bet is the absolute “best bet” in the house. The odds themselves have a casino advantage of zero. A highly recommended wager.

Dear Mark,
Playing craps with a pass line bet and a point of 9, I asked the dealer what were my chances of winning. He said 40%. Was he right? Janice G.

Janice, the dealer was correct when he told you 40% with this simple formula illustrating it. There are six ways a 7 will appear (3-4, 4-3, 5-2, 2-5, 6-1, 1-6), and four ways a 9 can show (5-4, 4-5, 6-3, 3-6). Obviously, one of these ten combinations must happen for your bet to be decided. So, because, on average, you’ll make the point of 9 four of ten times, there’s your 40%
