You cut the cards to make sure the dealer isn’t cheating you. At this point Walt feels he has nothing to lose
Interesting that he asks if Walt wants to cut the cards after asking if Walt would believe him. It would seem that Walt is saying that he would believe him, since Walt trusts him to cut the cards. I suppose he’d believe anything at this point with nothing left to live for.
