The Field Bet

The Field Bet is a wager on a range of the numbers which are hardest to roll: the 2,3,4,9,10,11,12. Ranged against these field bet numbers are the more likely numbers: 5,6,7, and 8. This one-bet roll is easy to make, because the craps table has the word "Field" among its proposition bets.

The house edge on a Field Bet is 5.55%. The payouts typically are 1 to 1 for the 3,4,5,10, and 11. The 2 and the 12 receive higher payouts. Some casinos make these payouts 2:1 and others make them 3:1. The Field Bet has a house edge similar to American Roulette, so it is not a great wager. It is better than many of the other sucker bets described on this website.
