The next important consideration when making an odds bet is the betting range. The casino determines the monetary amounts that it accepts as bets. A standard craps game allows the player to take double odds. This means that an odds bet can be twice as large as the pass line bet. For example, a $10 pass line bet can be saddled with a $20 odds bet.
The double odds game is a typical venue, but in Las Vegas where casinos compete like Latin American soccer teams, other options exist. You will see signs and advertisements proclaiming 10x odds! Instead of being restricted to the lowly level of mere double odds, players at such a casino can place odds bets ten times the amount of their line bets. Variations on this theme, such as triple odds and 5x odds, also exist. A few casinos even boast games that allow tremendous 100x odds.
If your budget allows or you are simply wired with that gene that gives you a propensity for risk-taking behavior, go ahead and take all the odds that you can. Getting paid odds is a good feeling, and the pleasure increases proportionately with the size of your bet.
However, if you are more comfortable with double odds, you can play that way without shame no matter what range the casino offers. I have heard of the existence of single odds, but it sounds pretty lame. If you are getting single odds, I hope you are only in your basement playing dice with your buddies from work.
An interesting and useful variation on the double odds rule occurs when the six or eight is the point number. As you remember, you want to use $5 units for your odds bets. But what if you are at table with a low limit and you have a $2 pass line bet and the point is six or eight? You do not want to make a $4 odds bet. Casinos, being magnanimous institutions, allow players to place a $5 odds bet with a $2 pass line bet.
Wonderful! You are saved.
But wait a minute. The Earth would stop spinning if a little guy got a break when a big guy did not. In general, higher pass line bets can boost up the odds on a point of six or eight. For example, a $10 pass line bet is usually allowed to place $25 odds. You may want to ask before assuming that this option is available.
