In this edition of Southern Gaming’s Best Bet, we go to the felt of the craps table in an area marked as FIELD in all capital letters. While the Field Bet doesn’t hold the lowest odds in the casino, it is fun to play and you will find that the odds are pretty fair too.
You are basically betting that the next roll of the die will be one of seven numbers: 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12. Any win will pay even money, except 2 or 12, which usually pay double. If you happen to roll a 5, 6, 7 or 8, you lose. But…what’s the best strategy?
