Don’t Come Lay Odds

Lay Odds for a Don’t Come work the same way as Lay Odds on the Don’t Pass. You add them to your Don’t Come Bet after it has moved behind a Point and it’s also betting that a 7 will be rolled before the Point. If the 7 rolls your Don’t Come Bet and its Lay Odds will win. If the Point is rolled the Don’t Come Bet and its Lay Odds lose. You can add Lay Odds at any time a Don’t Come Bet as long as it is behind a Point and they are not Contract bets so you can take them back at any time. Lay Odds are always working and you cannot turn them “Off”. They must be returned to you.

Placement of Don't Come Lay Odds

When you want to add Lay Odds to your Don’t Come bet you must give the bet to the dealer. Place the money in the Come area and tell the dealer you want to Lay Odds to whichever Don’t Come Bet you have behind a Point. The dealer will take that money and heel it next to your Don’t Come Bet.

What do Lay Odds Pay for a Don't Come

Lay Odds for a Don’t Come Bet work the same way as Lay Odds for the Don’t Pass. They pay differently depending on what Point you are Laying Odds behind and therefore must make the bets in certain increments. When your Don’t Come and its Lay Odds win, the dealer will pay each bet and then stack all the money into one stack, move it through the Don’t Come area and hand it off to you.

Laying Odds on the Don't Come - 6 or 8

Like the Lay Odds on the Don’t Pass, when the Point is 6 or 8 you get paid 5:6 or “5 for every 6”. This means that you must bet in increments of $6 and for every $6 you get paid $5.

Laying Odds on the Don't Come - 5 or 9

When you’re Laying Odds for a Don’t Come on the 5 and 9 you get paid 2:3 or “2 for every 3” so you must bet the Lay Odds in increments of $3 and for every $3 you get paid $2.

Laying Odds on the Don't Come - 4 or 10

Laying Odds for a Don’t Come on the 4 and 10 is as easy as it gets. They get paid 1:2 or “$1 for every $2”. This means that you must make the Lay Odds in increments of $2 and get paid $1. All you have to do is make the Lay Odds even and you’ll be fine.

Max Lay Odds for a Don't Come

The maximum Lay Odds you can add to a Don’t Come bet are the same as for the Don’t Pass. It doesn’t matter which number you are behind, the maximum Lay Odds you can add are six times the Don’t Come Bet. Since the casino has no advantage on this bet they put a limit on it.

Betting Don't Come Lay Odds for the Dealers

If you make a Don’t Come Bet for the dealers and their bet gets put behind a Point, you can add Lay Odds to it. There is a maximum you are allowed to bet for the dealers just like for yourself, six times the Don’t Come Bet.
