Bet On the World Championship Snooker Tournament

As someone who is an avid snooker fan, you must admire the current form of Ronnie O’Sullivan, in fact it is very true to say he is on the top of his form currently, so much so he is available at some very short odds of just 6/4 to win this year’s World Championship Snooker Tournament.

However, that doesn’t mean that one of the other snooker players won’t win that event, and if the betting markets are any guide, it would appear the player best placed to do so is Judd Trump, no relation to the US President of course, who is currently thee second favourite to win this tournament at odds of 15/2.

In fact, it is also true to say the John Higgins could steal the crown of both above two players, and if you are a fan of his and think he is going to win this tournament, then now is the time you should be placing your bets on him for his odds are currently 8/1.

Many fans of snooker however have a sneaking suspicion that Ding Junhui could be the player that finishes in first position on this event this year, so much so they are beginning to mop up his current outright winner odds which are around the 11/1 mark.

Just keep in mind though that as the betting markets for the Word Championship Snooker tournament are currently live and in-play, as each of the remaining matches are being played off the odds of all players are going to change.

Other Players in With a Chance of Winning

If experience has taught me anything, it is always worth checking out the odds of some of the less fancied players in any tournament, for any of them could suddenly find their very best form and win any tournament they are playing in.

As such, let me know guide you through some of the other players that may tempt you to place a bet on them and I will also give you an indication of their current and readily available odds on each of those players winning this snooker tournament.

Neil Robertson is certainly a player that you should never underestimate, and if he is someone you do fancy betting on then make sure you take advantage of the odds of 14/1 that can be had on him winning.

Both Kyren Wilson and Shaun Murphy are in with a chance of winning and both those two players odds are 16/1 but do also consider Barry Hawkins along with Mark Allen who can be had at odds of 18/1, or even place a bet on Mark Williams at 20/1, as he does have a fair chance of winning too!

Bigger Odds on the Outsiders to Win

Whilst any of the above-named snooker players are all in with a fair and reasonable chance of winning, there will of course be some much better and higher odds available to you if you choose to back some of the outsiders to win this tournament.

Joe Perry may be someone you fancy having a bet on and his current odds of 25/1 are certainly tempting, as are the odds of 40/1 that you will bet on both Ryan Day and on Stuart Bingham.

But at the end of the day keep in mind that all bookmakers and betting sites are not offering you huge odds on any sporting event, player or team due to their generosity, it is due to the fact they do not think those people or teams with huge odds can possibly win the event they are playing in.

As such the chances of Lyu Haotian, Jack Lisowski and Allister Carter are low of them winning his event, and as such their respective odds are 66/1, 801 and also 80/1, so do not go too mad if you do fancy placing a bet on any of them.

If you cannot resist taking advantage of the three-digit odds on offer on some of the last few players in this tournament then let me enlighten you on who those players are and their current odds.

Luca Brecel is 100/1, both Anthony McGill and Xiao Guodong are 125/1, then you have Ricky Walden, at 150/1, Jamie Jones at 200/1, Thepchaiya Un Nooh on offer at odds of 300/1 and four players who are all 400/1 to win this event include Jimmy Robertson, Stuart Carrington, Chris Wakelin and Robert Milkins, but the rank outsider however is Liam Highfield at odds of some 500/1.
