Don't Come Lay Odds

Lay Odds for a Don’t Come work the same way as Lay Odds on the Don’t Pass. You add them to your Don’t Come Bet after it has moved behind a Point and is also betting that a 7 will be rolled before the Point. If the 7 rolls your Don’t Come Bet and its Lay Odds win. If the Point is rolled the Don’t Come Bet and its Lay Odds lose.

  • Lay Odds are NOT contract bets

  • You cannot turn OFF Lay Odds

What do Lay Odds Pay for a Don't Come

Lay Odds for a Don’t Come Bet work the same way as Lay Odds for the Don’t Pass. They pay differently depending on the Point and you must make them in certain increments. When your Don’t Come and its Lay Odds win, the dealer will pay each bet and then stack all the money into one stack, move it through the DC and hand it off to you.

Lay Odds Payment - 6 or 8

Like the Lay Odds on the Don’t Pass, when the Point is 6 or 8 you get paid 5:6, said as “5 to 6”. This means that you must bet in increments of $6 and get paid $5 for every $6.

Lay Odds Payment - 5 or 9

When you’re Laying Odds for a Don’t Come on the 5 and 9 you get paid 2:3 , said as “2 to 3”so you must bet the Lay Odds in increments of $3 and get paid $2 for every $3.

$5 with $6 lay odds behind point nine paid $5 and $4 respectively. Sign says DC wins even money and $6 lay wins $4.

Lay Odds Payment - 4 or 10

When you’re Laying Odds for a Don’t Come on the 4 and 10 you get paid 1:2 , said as “1 to 2” so you must bet the Lay Odds in increments of $2 and you get paid $1 for every $2.

$15 with $60 lay odds behind point four paid $15 and $30 respectively. Sign says DC wins even and $60 lay wins $30.

 Max Lay Odds for a Don't Come 

Since the casino has no advantage on this bet they put a limit on it. The maximum Lay Odds you can add to a Don’t Come bet are the same as for the Don’t Pass. No matter the number, the maximum Lay Odds you can add are six times the Don’t Come bet.

$25 with $150 lay odds behind point eight. Sign says 6 x don’t pass bet: 6 x $25 = $150 max lay.

Betting Don't Come Lay Odds for the Dealers

If you make a Don’t Come bet for the dealers and their bet gets put behind a Point, you can add Lay Odds to it. Max for the dealers is still six times.
