It is clear from the above table that 7 is the maximum rolled combination in craps giving the highest probability, and other numbers that have a high probability are those that are close to 7.

Are you wondering why we need to know the probability of all the combinations? Well, this is what tells you that 2 has a far lesser chance of being rolled than a number like 7, 6 or 8.

There are many odds on the craps table that offer big odds to the players for rolling the numbers with less probability like the 2, like the proposition bets. But the problem with these bets is the house edge, which is quite large. On the face of it, it looks as if a lot of money can be won with the bigger odds, but once you understand these probabilities, your thinking is sure to change.

Understanding the game of craps ensures players don't waste time and money experimenting. This table gives a clear picture of the probability of all combinations.
