### Basic Regressions in Craps

4 August 2003

A regression system is one that usually can provide you with a profit after just one win at the tables.

One of the most popular regression systems begins by betting \$30 six and eight. You just place \$30 each on both the six and eight, so you have \$60 in play. When either number hits, you win \$35 (at 7:6 odds). You then regress both bets down to \$18 each. Now you have \$35 in profit and \$36 on the table, so you are only risking \$1 to win \$21.

If either number hits and you win the \$21, regress both numbers down to \$12. You have won \$56 (\$35 + \$21) and on the third hit will win another \$14, for a total of \$70. After this third hit, you should regress down to \$6 each, and if you win, you'll have a total of \$77 in profit for any four hits on the six and eight.

An alternative to regressing both numbers is to regress only the number that is hit. For example, if the \$30 six hits, you'll regress just the six down to \$24 and leave \$30 on the eight. If the six hits again, you go to an \$18 six and \$30 eight. After any four hits you should take everything down and wait for the next shooter.

If you're a red chip player, you could begin by placing the six and eight for \$12 each. If either hits, regress it down to \$6 and leave the other number up at \$12. If it hits again, just leave it at \$6 while you wait for the other number to hit. As with the previous system, you are looking for any four hits before you take your remaining bets down.

The whole point of regression systems is to place your biggest bets at the beginning of a shooter's roll, and your smallest bets at the end. Sometimes the shooter will keep on rolling, and you will regret your bet. But most of the time you will lock up your profit and have your bets at the table minimum (or off completely) when he sevens out.

As I said before, the most popular regression system is for placing the six and eight. We'll take a closer look at these two numbers in next month's article.
