If the pay out for a Do not Pass Odds bet is the same as the amt. of the Flat wager, then the Odds wager is bridged. The section of your Odds bet that is equal to the Flat wager is arranged exactly beside to the Flat wager. Then, the rest of the Odds wager is put on top "bridging" them. As an example, consider you place a $5 Do not Pass bet and the shooter throws a point of 8. Knowing the true odds for the eight are six to five (for example., six ways to roll a seven, and five ways to make an eight), you then place 6 dollars in Odds with the expectation of winning 5 dollars. In this example, if you win the $6 Odds wager, you earn five dollars, which exactly equals the amt. you win with your $5 Flat bet. Therefore, since your Flat bet and Odds bet earn the same amt. (5 dollars each), you bridge your 6 dollars Odds bet by making a 5 dollar chip immediately beside to your 5 dollar Flat wager, and then laying the one dollar chip so it bridges the 2 5 dollar chips.

If the payout for a Do not Pass Odds bet doesn’t equal the amt. of the Flat bet, then the Odds wager is heeled. This alludes to the fact that you lay the bottom chip of your Odds wager chip stack directly next to your Flat bet. Then, place all remaining Odds bet chips on top of that first chip but offset and leaning on that first chip (your Odds wager chip stack is crooked because it’s leaning on the bottom chip).

Perturbed? That’s alright, don’t get agitated. The croupier is always ready to help if you don’t remember. After a few instances, it all makes sense. It will not take too much time before you’re a pro. If you’re not sure what to do the initial time you try it, simply say to the croupier, "I would like to put some Odds but I don’t comprehend if it should be bridged or heeled." The croupier asks, "How much do you wish to put?" Let’s assume you indicate, "$15 to win 10." The croupier asks you to place your chips on the table (dealers are not allowed to collect anything, especially chips, right from a gambler), and then the croupier correctly heels or bridges them based on the amount of your Flat bet. You’ll quickly get the hang of it. Just do not be scared to ask the croupier inquiries. His or Her job is not only to deal, but also to be friendly and help the gamblers.
