What is a Street Bet?

The Street Bet is an Inside Bet on 3 numbers which pays out 11 to 1 if you win (you also get your original bet back). It’s also called Transversale Plein in French roulette. This is a so called “Inside Bet” (like the Split Bet and the Corner Bet) because you place your chips “inside” the number zone on a roulette table.

Well, it’s on the edge really, but it is categorised as an Inside Bet.

It’s also known as a Row Bet or a Line Bet (but not to be confused with the Six Line Bet). A “street” is a line of 3 numbers on roulette tables.

An example would be a bet on 10,11,12 or 28,29,30. To place a Street Bet, place your chip at the end of a row of 3 numbers as shown above. You can use these kinds of bets in the 3 Quadrant Strategy.

Street Bet Tip

Bet on multiple streets to cover more table. This will allow you to mix it up a bit, rather than always betting on larger outside bets like Red or Black. If you bet on 6 streets, you will cover just under 50% of the table (remember there is also a zero pocket), and this will allow you to mix things up spin to spin.

Win Probability

If you place a Street Bet on a European Wheel, you have a 3:37 chance of winning (8.1%) or 1:12.3
On an American Wheel, your odds are 3:38 for each Street Bet (7.9%) or 1:12.7.

The difference between the odds and the payout is the house edge.

If you want to cover more numbers, but don’t want to go up to a six-line bet, you can cover 4 with the Finales en Plein bets. or make a Corner Bet.

Street Bet House Advantage

The House Advantage on the Streetbet is equal to the House Edge you get on the other main roulette bets: 5.26% for American Roulette (2 zero pockets) and 2.63% in a single zero European Roulette Wheel. The only exception to this House Edge rule, is the 5 Number Bet which is a bet you can only make in Double Zero Roulette (American).


Pros and Cons

  • A fast way of covering 3 numbers
  • Make Multiple Split Bets to cover more table and mix it up
  • Standard house edge applies
  • A single Split Bet doesn’t cover much table (only around 8%)

FAQs

Q&A

  • What is another name of the Street Bet?
    Also know as a Triple Bet, Trio, Side Bet or the Transversal on a French table. I have also heard it called a Row Bet
  • Is the Street Bet a high variance bet?
    If you only bet on one street, then yes, its pretty volatile. that’s to say, there will be substantial gaps between wins, but it does pay out at 11-1 (plus you get your original bet back). You can always bet on multiple streets.
