I think you are heading to Vegas soon. Allow me to share lessons from my glorious 10 year run at craps. This is "Czaban eyes only" information---we can't risk it falling into the wrong hands:
1. There is no such thing as a good strategy or bad strategy. Like a lottery ticket, a dumb bet is dumb until it hits...then it's smart. Still, I prefer the pass line with max odds. It's the lowest house edge you'll find in Vegas. I'll also place the 6&8 if the table seems warm. Also, for 5&9, I've had surprising good luck placing the number opposite the point (if point is 9, place 5 and vice versa). I'll toss in a hard way for luck or entertainment, but I don't expect to win those. One thing I would suggest is pick a strategy for a session (or weekend) and stick with it --- for example, you don't want to flip from the pass line to the don't pass, because you will almost certainly lose both ways and feel like the biggest loser in Vegas.
2. Most important: If possible, find that guy or girl. They are rare and very difficult to locate, but some people are just plain lucky. You will know them when you see them. There is just something about how they act/talk/smile. These people cannot lose. I cross paths with one about every third trip. The one lucky guy or girl will pay for all the other losers that week. Keep your eye out for them. It's the most important lesson here. And, when they tell you how to bet, don't think, just do what they tell you.
3. If you are fortunate enough to play along with them, when Lucky Guy or Lucky Girl leaves the table, walk away. I have considered doing this every time, but have NEVER done it, and ALWAYS regretted it. Luck follows these rare people, and so when they leave, your table will turn to ice. Guaranteed. But, it's very hard to leave because it is so much fun winning money and laughing with Lucky Guy, you just don't want the fun to end. You will tell yourself that maybe it was the table and not Lucky Guy --- but you'll be wrong. You won't want to leave, but walk away.
4. PBL (“Proper Beer Level”) is just as important in craps as it is in golf. Everyone has their own level, but try to find yours and stick with it.
5. Trying to use sheer will to turn a cold table warm does not work, except when it does. I have had success by not giving up too soon, but it's hard to know when to give up on a bad table. Oh, if you do walk away, keep walking. Don't hover just to see how the table gets....it's bad luck and nothing good happens (if the table heats up you are pissed for leaving, and if the table remains cold you feel glad seeing other people lose...which is not what Vegas is about).
6. The second hottest chick at the table will do better than the hottest chick. Seen it a million times. Everybody wants the hot chick to throw a hot roll and they load up, but she will go point seven. The next chick, however, will quietly hit a few points and put some money in your pocket.
Good Luck and Godspeed
