Basic don't come Bet Method

admincraps, craps strategy, craps systems4 Comments

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.

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.

      It is just a reprint from another site…. I should probably just delete it 🙂 In the meantime, you can check out the Crapspit preferred strategy!
