Lay-Bet Strategies

Lay-Bet strategies are another tool in your toolbox of Craps Play. When I see a cold or choppy table, I change the direction of my play by looking at the Dark Side and Lay-Bets.

A table is considered Choppy when the shooter cannot make his/her point number. The shooter may be hitting numbers and not making their point number.

A couple of things I consider when going to Lay-Bets:

       - On any roll, I have a 22.22% chance of a 7 or 11 being rolled.

       - On a cold table, - I personally prefer to do Lay Bets and pay the 5% vig.(paid up front in  
          most casinos)

      - I avoid placing the Don't Pass and Don't Come bets - the potential for the 7 or 11 to roll
          make these bets suspect plays. (7 or 11 loses on these plays)

      - Once the shooter establishes their point, I will then "Lay the point". When the result is a
         PSO (point-7-out) it is a wonderful thing. 

The Laying-Across Strategy is another option - by Laying-Across; you can win all your bets on one roll of the dice when a 7 shows. If by chance a box number rolls, you will only lose the bet on that number - the rest stay alive. With this Strategy:

     - If I lose two Lay-Bets, I take the rest down.

     - I never replace a Lay-Bet that I have lost due to repeating numbers.

     - I only "Lay the point" on a choppy table.

     - I like to see Horn numbers rolled in between box numbers.
