The Don't Come Bet

The Don't Come Bet is one of the basic bets in craps. This wager is the opposite of the Come Bet, meaning you are betting against the shooter. The Don't Come Bet is made after the point is set on the come-out roll. It is a wager against the point, so you are hoping the shooter rolls a seven before he or she rolls the point again. The house edge is 1.35%, making it the best bet in craps.

New players might wonder what a Don't Come Bet is like. Let's say that the shooter rolls a "6" on the come-out roll. Six becomes the point. If you then make a Don't Come Bet, then you hope the shooter rolls a 7 before he or she rolls a 6 again.

The Don't Come Bet is quite similar to the Don't Pass Bet. The only difference is the Don't Pass Bet is made before the come-out roll, while the Don't Come Bet is made after the come-out roll.

Players who make this bet are called "wrong bettors", because they are betting against the dice shooter.
