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 progress 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!
