If the payout for a Do not Pass Odds bet equals the amt. of the Flat wager, then the Odds wager is bridged. The part of your Odds bet that’s equal to the Flat bet is positioned exactly beside to the Flat wager. Then, the remainder of the Odds wager is put on top "bridging" them. As an example, suppose you make a 5 dollar Don’t Pass bet and the shooter tosses a point of eight. Knowing the true odds for the eight are six:five (i.e., 6 ways to roll a 7, and five ways to make an eight), you then place 6 dollars in Odds with the expectation of winning $5. In this instance, if you win the $6 Odds bet, you win five dollars, which exactly equals the amount you earn with your 5 dollar Flat wager. Therefore, since your Flat bet and Odds bet win the same amt. ($5 each), you bridge your $6 Odds bet by laying a $5 chip exactly beside to your $5 Flat wager, and then putting the $1 chip so it bridges the two $5 chips.

If the payout for a Don’t Pass Odds bet doesn’t equal the amount of the Flat wager, then the Odds wager is heeled. This basically means you position the bottom chip of your Odds bet chip stack exactly beside to your Flat wager. Then, put all remaining Odds bet chips on top of that single chip but to the side and leaning on that first chip (your Odds bet chip stack is crooked because it is angled on the bottom chip).

Befuddled? That is ok, do not get nervous. The dealer is always ready to help if you don’t remember. After a few times, it all makes sense. It won’t take too long before you are a master. If you’re not sure what to do the first instance you try it, simply say to the dealer, "I would like to lay some Odds but I don’t comprehend if it really should be bridged or heeled." The croupier asks, "How much do you want to place?" Let’s assume you say, "Fifteen dollars to win 10." The dealer will request that you place your chips on the craps table (croupiers are not permitted to accept anything, above all chips, directly from a gambler), and then he correctly heels or bridges them based on the amount of your Flat bet. You’ll quickly get the hang of it. Just don’t be scared to ask the dealer questions. His job is just to deal, but also to be friendly and assist the competitors.
