The Secret of Field/Place Betting
Pssst... Wanna know a secret?
How about the secret of profiting with field/place combination bets?
The field bet, when used by itself, is not a good bet. It must be used with other bets or in a progression to make it profitable for the experienced crapshooter. These seven different field numbers (2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and 12) can be made a total of only 16 times, leaving 20 for the other numbers. If a 5, 6, 7, or 8 rolls you lose. So if you place a field bet by itself, you'll win 16 times and lose 20 times (in 36 theoretical rolls). And, the field only pays off 1:1 - that is, if you bet $5, you win $5. For example, if you bet $5 on the field and the 4 rolls, you'll win just $5 (at 1:1) instead of the $9 (at 9:5) you would win if you placed the 4.
Wanna know the secrets that craps pros use to make money from field/place betting?
Let's find out!
The seven field numbers can be made a total of 16 times. The 6 and 8 can be rolled ten times, the 5 four times, and the 7 six times. So if you bet on the 5, 6 and 8 in addition to the field, you can win 30 times (16 + 10 + 4) and lose only to the 7, which rolls six times.
You can place $25 on the 5, $30 on the 6 and 8, and $20 on the field. If the 5, 6 or 8 roll, you win $35 and lose $20, giving you a $15 profit. If the 2 or 12 roll, you win $40 (field pays double on 2 and 12). And if the 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 roll, you win $20.
The trick to this, of course, is not leaving everything up so it can get whacked by the 7. You should wait for a come-out 7 before you make this bet, leave all your bets up for one roll only, and then take everything down. Then wait for another come-out 7 before you start betting again.
For smaller bankrolls, try placing the 5 for $5, the 6 and 8 for $6 each, and $2 on the field. Again wait for a come-out 7 first, and leave your bets up for one roll only. You'll win $2 on the 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11, $5 ($7 - $2) on the 5, 6 or 8, and, $4 on the 2 or 12.
The next time you want to bet inside, try betting the field also - but just for one roll!
Pssst... Now you know the secrets of field/place betting!
