Lesson 4 - The House Advantage

Why have a table of a good many bets and their corresponding house advantage? 

 

The answer is easy, it will help you develop clearer and more intelligent betting choices.  I've heard it said many times, "in the short term, the vig has no bearing on craps wagering because anything can happen in the short term..."  

 

Well, how you wager your money is your business, this table is here to lay out in black and white, the facts.

Of course, the one addendum I must add here is that if you are wagering on a precision shooter (either yourself or someone else), this table is to be thrown out the window. 

Find the signature trend of the shooter and EXPLOIT IT regardless of the house advantage!
