## Does the way you throw dice in craps change the outcome?

At the casino table game of Craps, does the way you throw matter?

Of course, I wouldn't mind winning some money, too. I'm hoping someone here can give me some strategy tips based on these odds. A friend has suggested placing 12 exacta bets on Zenyatta to win and each of the others to place. The assumption I'm making is that she will indeed win.
