# Basic don't come Bet Method

The Basic don’t come Bet Method uses flat bets with no added odds, except on the don’t pass when you are making a don’t come bet.

Are you ready to play craps online? I can recommend 2 casinos to play at. Once is Miami Club and the other is Casino Max. Visit both and check them out, I am loving them both, no reason why you would not!

Here’s how it works. You put \$5 on the don’t pass line, and the point is 6. You lay \$5 on the odds and place \$5 in the don’t come box. If the next roll is a 7, you would lose the \$5 don’t come, but win \$10 on the don’t pass. A profit of \$5. The next roll is 10. You now have \$5 plus \$5 odds on the don’t pass and \$5 on the don’t come 10. You would now remove the odds bet on the don’t pass.

By adding the odds bet to the don’t pass when making a don’t come bet, you are insuring a win if a 7 is thrown, instead of just breaking even.

Can someone explain something about this to me? If your don’t pass was \$30 instead of \$5 and you wanted to bring a don’t come bet through safely, wouldn’t you have to put more than \$30 behind the don’t pass because of the odds for that number? is it because of the smaller amount(\$5) or can you actually place \$30 behind to win \$30 straight up?

So,if the don’t pass was\$30 instead of \$5 as above and you wanted to bring a \$30 don’t come bet through safely,wouldn’t you have to make it more than \$30? Can you just increase the original bet by \$30 and have it pay even money? That’s the way it sounds to me, you lay \$5 (or in my example, \$30) on the odds and it would pay \$30 plus your \$30 don’t pass?

I don’t think that’s right. the don’t pass/odds wouldn’t win \$10.
