Unfortunately, by poker standards, every craps pot is too small to justify a "call." A player never has an advantage, so he should "fold" every hand and never make a bet.
Sounds grim, huh? Take heart. Everything changes when you're setting dice. A player who sets dice can alter the probability of rolling particular numbers and make some craps bets worth the risk. For more on setting dice, check out ReadyBetGo's dice setting section or Chapter 7 of The Smarter Bet Guide to Craps.
Is there any strategic reason to play craps if you're not setting dice? Absolutely, yes. If you play the game properly, it costs almost nothing, and it's fun. That is a positive return right there. Sometimes the value in a game is in the pleasure of the experience, and not only in the pot. Think of all the things you do in life just to have fun.
And if you're setting dice, then the casino is paying you to have fun.
