Betting the Don't Pass in Craps
For the most part, the Don’t Pass is the complete opposite of the Pass Line. Where the Pass Line wins, the Don’t Pass loses and vice versa. You can only bet the Don’t Pass during the Comeout Roll because after the Comeout Roll the Don’t Pass is most likely to win and the casinos would never give you that advantage.

What Are the Two Stages of the Don't Pass in a Craps Game?
Stage 1 - The Comeout Roll
Stage one is the Comeout Roll, before the Point is established. During the Comeout Roll the Don’t Pass Line wins when 2 or 3 are rolled. It loses if a 7 or Eleven are rolled, and if the 12 rolls it’s a push, it doesn’t win or lose. The Comeout Roll is where the casino makes its money on the Don’t Pass because once a Point is established the Don’t Pass has advantage over the house.
Stage 2 - Intermediate Roll
The second stage is the Intermediate Roll, after the Point is established. During the Intermediate Roll the Don’t Pass is betting that the 7 will roll before the Point is rolled. If the 7 rolls before the Point the Don’t Pass wins. If the Point rolls before the 7 the Don’t Pass loses.
