Snooker Betting Guide
Snooker betting is similar in many ways to darts betting in that there are 3 types of betting, tournament betting, pre-match betting and in-play betting. All 3 are offered on all TV tournaments while tournament and match betting are offered on non televised events. Eurosport and BBC cover every ranking event in the snooker season so there is ample opportunity for snooker enthusiasts to have a bet, with a lot of the tournaments sponsored by bookmakers themselves. Barry Hearn has made a lot more tournaments available since taking over the world of snooker but the season still revolves around the World Championship at the Crucible Theatre at the end of April/beginning of May.
We supply you all year round with great snooker tips.
In major ranking events there is the usual tournament outright betting and then the quarter betting. You can also get a bet on who will make the highest break and if there will be a 147 in the tournament. Other markets offered outright are the name the finalists market and the nationality of the winner market.
Match betting is quite popular in snooker with matches generally short so value quite easy to find. If match betting isn’t your thing however then don’t worry. You can bet on a match with a handicap as well as the correct score betting for the more daring punter. Other bets include the total amount of frames, total amount of 50+ breaks and even the total amount of century breaks there will be. You can also bet on which player will make the highest break and even what that break will be.
Again the most popular form of in-play betting is the match winner market. As always odds can change quite quickly as each shot has such an impact on the match. Along with that you can also bet on who will win the next frame, how many points will be scored in each frame and even which colour will be potted first in each frame.
