Laying the odds at a craps table means you are betting against the shooter or against a specific number showing before the dreaded seven. A bet against a shooter means the bettor wants a seven to roll before the shooter’s number rolls. This is often referred to as playing the don’t side of the table. A don’t bettor is laying odds against certain numbers being rolled before a seven is rolled. A don’t ten bet would be the original bet plus laying the odds of say $20 to win $10 on the odds bet. The original bet would pay even money.
