Just like the Pass Line, after the Point has been established, you are allowed to make an Odds bet but there is a big difference between the two. On the Pass Line you “Take Odds”, and you bet them to win more. On the Don’t Pass you “Lay Odds” and bet more to win less because you’re more likely to win. You cannot Lay Odds unless you have a Don’t Pass bet. Lay Odds have zero advantage for the casino.
Lay Odds for the Don’t Pass have zero advantage for the casino. Even though this bet has zero advantage for the casino, many people don’t like to bet it because you have to bet more in order to win less. After a Point has been made the Don’t Pass and its Lay Odds are more likely to win than the Point because it wins on a 7 and a 7 is more likely to roll than any other number. This is why you have to bet more to win less.
