    I take it that this is not a question as regards the EV comparison of the two bets, right?

    I would think a third choice would be appropriate....."or Both". :)

    Correct. We will leave it up to the individual to make their decision for any reason they like. EV. Personal choice.

    So, Butter Cup you come up with a new question on the come bet but just word it differently. You just made my day and gave me one more laugh!

    I like it this way because it is clear. One is a contract one is not.

    It just depends on my game plan for that session, sometimes the come bet is the basis of my strategy....used with a negative progression, and some positive regression.

    Other times I might use the place bets, on those occasions, I am usually very aggressive, I call it my lotto craps play. A committed press for a certain number of hits.

    The first strategy, come bets, is a very low risk to reward play, many small winning sessions, with an occasional larger losing session.

    The second one, place bet pressing, is a very volatile play with many smaller losing sessions, with an occasional "Barn Burning" win. :)

    So...."both", are better bets for me....at different times.

    I like to keep come odds and place bets working so I find place bets compliment come bet play. When I enjoy really place / buy bets most is when the Come Bet has max odds and I’m still below table max.

    Pressing a yo win and hitting it again is a barn burner to me... Collect and walk away. Just used up a weeks luck.
