Pssst...Wanna know another secret?
How about secrets of grinding out a profit?
The term "grinding" means making a small amount of money on a consistent basis. Many dealers look at grinders with derision because they make bets and then take them down after each one hits, which means constant work for poor dealers. These dealers can spot a grinder right away because they never press bets and are satisfied with one small profit on each shooter. But can you really make a consistent profit with grinding?
Let's find out!
One way to grind out profits is to bet don't-come and make a corresponding place bet on same number. If you have a $10 don't-come that goes to six or eight, you can place same number for $6. If seven rolls (which is favored) you'll win $10 (and lose $6), but if six rolls you'll only lose $3 instead of $10.
If point is four or ten, you can place either number for $5 to balance out your $10 don't-come. If seven rolls now you'll win $5 ($10 - $5), but if four/ten rolls you only lose $1 ($9 - $10) instead of $10.
Finally, with a five or nine point, you can also place either number for $5 to balance out your $10 don't come. If seven rolls you'll win $5 ($10 -$5), but if 5/9 rolls you only lose $3 ($7 - $10) instead of $10.
If you bet at a higher level, you can make bets that will win if either point or seven rolls. For example, if you have a $25 don't-come that goes to six or eight, you can place either number for $24. If seven rolls you win $25 and lose $24, giving you a $1 profit. And, if 6/8 rolls, you win $28 and lose $25, which still gives you a profit of $3.
