Betting the hardways Prop bets are stupid bets right ? Well how comes you can have some stupid player making hardway bets and they walk away a winner? It's very simple, they are betting on what is being rolled, they are not going by the math of the game, and that is one thing a lot of players will never understand. Just because the math of the game says something is a bad bet if the shooter is rolling them they can be the best bet on the table at the time! I've heard it plenty of times when some player is talking to their buddy about how stupid a player is for making the hardway bets! They will still be talking about the hardway bet player, even after they walked away a winner by betting on them. One of the ways you can take advantage of the hardways is by having more chips on the soft way placed bet. Sure you are taking a bigger risk, but your reward will be there if the shooter does roll a hardway. The first thing I tell anybody that is betting the prop bets, is to make sure the shooter is actually rolling what you are betting on! If nobody is rolling the hardways, you shouldn't bet them! Craps is a game that is all about the timing! If your 15 minutes late, the old story is you should have been here 15 minutes ago. There is one hell of a roll going on then! If you do catch a roll where the shooter is rolling a lot of hardways you need to get some of your chips on the hardways. You have to start out knowing that any prop bet is a bad bet, if you are just going by the math of the game. You shouldn't be making hardway bets if they are not being rolled. But there are days when someone is rolling so many hardways you just can't ignore them! This is where you turn a bad bet into a good bet,if you are paying attention to what is happening on the table! Of course I'm going to put a disclaimer in here, there is no guarantee that you will win anytime you do this, as with any other bet that you make on a craps table. It always helps to have a lot of table time, when you're making judgment calls on prop bets. Your experience will tell you if you got a shot at winning those bets. Your bankroll will decide for you how much you can risk when making these hardway bets. If you start off small, and the hardways are hitting, you should always parlay your first bet when it hits, you are actually gambling, when looking at the hard way bets out a way to make money. So why not gamble big, and parlay your hit. If you hear my stickman calling: http://s63.photobucket.com/user/seas3to5/media/comingout.mp4.html It just might be time to bet the hard-eight!
