The Lay Bet
An unusual and uncommon fellow, the lay bet resembles the don't
pass and don't come bets in that you are playing against the dice.
The lay bet can be made at any time. In essence it's the opposite
of the buy bet, and the same as the don't come bet, but with different
odds. The lay bets may be placed on 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. The bet
is on the fact that a seven will be rolled before your number. 7
is more likely to come up than any other number so the casino requires
you to wager more than you could win. This bet also requires a commission
of 5% on average. If the bet is on 4 or 10 you get 1:2 odds, on
5 or 9 2:3 odds, on six or 8 5:6 odds. Lay bets are usually only
made by people who think they understand more about what's going
on that is probably possible. I would be surprised if anyone were
ever in a position where a lay bet is the best option, I recommend
sticking to the basic bets if your not an expert already.
