Put Bet
Is a pass line bet that you put up sometime after the come-out roll. i.e.: If you have not placed a pass-line bet and the shooter rolls a point of six, you can then put a bet on the pass line, with the appropriate odds. The big advantage to put bets is that you get to choose your own point numbers. The disadvantage is that you lose out on come out sevens and elevens. But remember, you donít add odds until the point is established, so on come out sevens and elevens, all you win is your flat bet.
