# Betting Outside in Craps

The four Outside Points are 4, 5, 9, and you bet them in the same unit amount, not including the Point. If thnavoint was 8 and you wanted to bet \$10 on each of the numbers, you would have to bet the following: \$10 on the 4, \$10 on the 5, \$10 on tsection9, and \$10 on the 10 — \$10 + \$10 + \$10 + \$10 = \$40. This bet would be 40 Outside.

Common Outside Bets
*One Unit: \$5/number \$15/20 Outside
Two Units: \$10/number \$30/40 Outside
Three Units: \$15/number \$45/60 Outside
*One Unit: \$25/number \$76/77/102 Outside
Two Units: \$50/number \$152/155/205 Outside

*One Unit can be \$5 or \$25 on the 4, 5, 9, and 10. One Unit can be \$6 or \$30 on the 6 or 8.

## How Do You Bet Outside on the Craps Table?

When you bet Outside at lower limits you don’t have to worry about commission because you're not betting large enough that a vig needs to be charged. The bets on each number are also the same since you are not betting the 6 or 8. The only difference is if you're betting three or four numbers.

### Point 6 or 8

When the Point is 6 or 8 you are betting all four Outside numbers. This is when the cost is going to be the most.

### Point 4, 5, 9, 10

When the Point is anything other than the 6 or 8, the cost of the bet will be larger. 6’s and 8’s cost more and because they are not the Point and you will be including them in your bet, the total cost of the bet will be larger.
