Betting Odds for a Come Bet

Odds for a Come bet work the same way as the Odds for a Pass Line bet. Just like the Come bet, Odds are also betting the Point will be rolled before a 7. If the Point is rolled, the Come bet and its' Odds win. If 7 rolls, your Come bet and its Odds lose. Odds can be less than table minimum.

  • Odds are not contract bets

  • You can add Odds to your Come Bet at any time

  • Odds are OFF during the Comeout Roll

How Do You Bet Odds for a Come Bet in Craps?

 Where Are Your Odds for Your Come Bet? 

The Odds for a Come bet are placed on top of the Come bet but are offset. They are offset so you could distinguish the Come bet from the Odds.

Odds Are OFF During the Comeout Roll

During the Comeout Roll the Odds on all Come Bets do not work, although the Come bet itself is always working. If a seven is rolled during the Comeout Roll you will lose all your Come Bets and all the Odds on those Come Bets will be returned to you. If the next Point that is rolled is one that you have a Come bet on then the Come Bet itself will get paid even money and its Odds will just be given back.

You can turn your Odds ON during the Comeout Roll and if the seven rolled you would lose both the Come Bet and its Odds. If that Point rolled during the Comeout Roll then you would get paid for both the Come Bet and its' Odds.

What Do Your Odds Pay on a Come Bet in Craps?

Odds on a Come bet work the same way as Odds on the Pass Line. You bet them in the same increments and they pay the same amounts. When Come bet Odds win the dealer will add the payout for the Come bet + the payout for its Odds to get one total. The total is what you are given because they both won at the same time.

Pays 6:5 on the 6 and 8

Odds on the 6 or 8 must be bet in increments of $5. Every $5 you bet as Odds for a Come Bet on the 6 or 8 gets paid $6. Otherwise known as 6:5 which is read "6 to 5" or you can think of it as you win "$6 for every $5". When the Point is rolled, the dealer will add together the payment of the Come Bet and it’s Odds and pay you the total.

You must add an even number as Odds on the 5 and 9. Every $2 you bet as Odds gets paid $3. This is known as 3:2 which is read "3 to 2" or you win "$3 for every $2".

This is giving money to the casino and not recommended.
