It has to do with shooting craps (dice)

IIRC, it was a call by a non-shooter that the "shooter" (dice thrower) would not make a 7 or 11 throwing the dice. HTH, Joel. (Edited for spelling)

It means, roll the dice your bet is covered.

Faded refers to the bet being covered.

Slang can be such a head-scratcher at times

Why not just say 'Shoot, you're covered'?
