World Championship Betting
World Championship Snooker Betting Odds
The World Snooker Championship is the oldest and most prestigious professional snooker tournament with the highest prize money. The duration of a snooker game can be quite long as all the red and coloured balls have to go in, leaving enough time between each shot for bettors to place live sports bets.
Betting on Snooker
Snooker has always been a popular sport in the UK. In recent years, however, the identity of the game has begun to change as its popularity has spread to other countries, the main one being China.
Each player's world ranking is based on their performance in designated ranking tournaments over the previous two years.
Betting on the World Snooker Championship
Nine of the last ten winners are English nationals. The reigning world champion, who won the Crucible in Sheffield for the fourth time, is Mark Selby after winning the previous final 18-15 against Shaun Murphy.
However, the world champion and world number 1 is not at his best. Mark Selby recently confessed that he is consulting doctors in his current battle with depression.
Betting on the underdog
Record 38-time title winner Ronnie O'Sullivan is considered one of the most talented snooker players in the world. He has won the world championship six times between 2001 and 2020, 7 snooker masters (all snooker masters bets) plus 7 UK championships.
Rounding out the podium in the world rankings is a third Englishman: Judd Trump. Despite his age, Judd Trump has made his mark on the history of snooker. In the 2019-20 season, he became the first player to win six tournaments in one season. He co-holds with John Higgins the record for the number of centuries entered in the World Championship final.
Australian Neil Robertson has won a professional tournament every year since 2006. The best non-British player of all time has been on a winning streak so far with victories at the English Open, Masters Championship, and Players Championship (all players championship bets). Neil Robertson is famous for his fearsome long rallies and building breaks.
