Casinos allow a player to place "odds" on pass, don't pass, come, and
don't come bets after a "point" has been established. If the bet on
which odds are placed wins, the odds bet is paid fairly. This means the
odds on pass and come bets are paid 2-1 for the 4 and 10, 3-2 for the 5
and 9, and 6-5 for the 6 and 8. The odds for don't pass and don't come
bets are paid 1-2 for the 4 and 10, 2-3 for the 5 and 9, and 5-6 for the
6 and 8 (this is called "laying" odds).
The player should make odds bets that can be paid exactly, or the dealer
will pay off by rounding down. Odds on the pass line and come bets
should be a multiple 5 if the point is 6 or 8 and a multiple of 2 if
it's a 5 or 9. (Don't betters can figure this out themselves.)
Casinos advertise the maximum odds bets they allow as the maximum amount
"times" the original bet the odds bet may be (for don't pass and don't
come bets, it's the maximum amount "times" the expected win). You can
increase your odds bet over this advertised maximum only enough to allow
you to make an odds bet that can be paid exactly.
A player can modify his odds bets at any time.
