During the Intermediate Roll you can add and extra bet called Odds directly behind your Pass Line bet. They are paid True Odds and are also betting that the Point will be rolled before the 7. The wonderful thing about the Odds bet is THE CASINO HAS ZERO ADVANTAGE so you should always want to make this bet.
If you don't plan on adding Odds then you probably shouldn't bet the Pass Line.
|Pass Line Odds|
|Point 6 or 8||6:5||When point Rolls||7|
|Point 5 or 9||3:2|
|Point 4 or 10||2:1|
Odds for the Pass Line are put directly behind the Pass Line bet. You should leave a couple inches between the two bets but at the very least you need to leave enough room for one die to land between each bet.
Odds for the Pass Line pay differently depending on what the Point is. They pay what are called True Odds. True Odds are different for each Point which is why you must bet Odds differently for each of those Points.
When you add Odds to a Place Bet on the 6 or 8, you must bet in increments of $5. $5, $10, $15, etc. Every $5 you bet as Odds for a Pass Line 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 6 for every 5.
If you bet an improper amount such as $6 Odds, the dealer will hand back the extra dollar and tell you it must be in increments of $5.
If you make a Pass Line bet for the dealers you can also add Odds to it. Just like a players Pass Line bet, there is also a maximum amount of Odds you can add to a dealers Pass Line bet that is determined by each casino. The Pass Line bet gets paid even money and the Odds accordingly.
