Back Line

Home » Back Line

The term “Back Line” in craps refers to a bet against the shooter. This bet is more commonly known as “Don’t Pass Line.” In this wager, you’re essentially betting that the shooter will roll a 2, 3, or 12 on the come-out roll, or that they will fail to make their point before rolling a 7 in subsequent throws.

It’s the opposite of the more commonly placed “Pass Line” bet, where players bet in favor of the shooter. The Back Line bet is one of the fundamental wagers in craps and offers a low house edge, making it a popular choice for many players. It’s a part of the game’s core dynamics, reflecting the betting flexibility and excitement craps is known for.
