Snooker Betting

Snooker is a cue sport that was invented in the second part of the nineteenth century by British Army soldiers stationed in India. It’s an intriguing and sophisticated game requiring strategy and skill.


There are a good variety of betting options when it comes to betting on snooker. Whether it’s one of the Triple Crown events – World Championship, UK Championships, and Masters – or a smaller event on the annual snooker calendar, there will be a range of snooker betting markets for them all.

Household names like Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, and Neil Robertson (pictured) are usually among the favourites to win the big snooker tournaments, as well as other big names such as Judd Trump and Kyren Wilson, looking to achieve their full potential.

World Snooker 2021 Predictions and Betting TipsTo start with, you can bet on who will win each snooker tournament (also known as outright winner betting odds). You can place your snooker bets before the competition begins, or you can bet on the winner as the tournament progresses. Indeed, it can often be advantageous to wait until an event has begun before attempting to predict the winner.

Then there is individual match betting for a particular snooker match. The options go way behind just predicting the winner – major snooker matches have betting odds on things like handicap betting (where one player receives a virtual head start), or which player will record the ‘Highest Break’ or ‘How many century breaks?’ among many other options.

You can even bet on the winner of each frame if quick fire betting is more your thing. Some World Championship snooker matches can sometimes take 3 days to complete!
