Snooker Betting Odds

Betting on Snooker in 2023 is typically split into two different categories, outright competition betting and match betting. For example, if you were looking for Snooker World Championship Odds, this would be an outright bet as your backing an individual to win a tournament. Meanwhile, you'll be able to find Snooker odds in two formats, either pre-match odds or in-play live betting odds in both regards you'll find the latest snooker odds but in an in-play match, live betting provides extensive opportunities that you won't find with outright odds.

Snooker Betting Markets

When looking to bet on Snooker, you'll find a wide-range of betting markets for each game. Outright bets allow you to place a bet on the winner of each competition, for example betting on Ronnie O'Sullivan to win the World Championship. However, for an individual game, you'll be able to bet on the following markets:

Match Winner: Bet on the player that will win a match.

Correct Score: Bet on the final score in the match, this includes picking a winner.

Frame Handicap: One player will be given a Handicap for example if Kyren Wilson took on Robert Milkins in the German Masters and you picked Wilson +2.5, Kyren Wilson would then have to win the match by 3 frames.

Total Frames: In this bet you could bet on the total number of frames in a game.

Mid-game scores: Here you would bet on the score after a certain point in the game, such as a 4-game score result.

Century Breaks: With this bet, you would back whether or not there would be a century break in the match and if there is, how many times will be see a century break? Also includes half-century breaks.

Highest Break: Betting on the player who will score the highest break or the score of the highest break.

Combination Bets: Much like the bet builder in football, you can combine a number of bets in place, if you have the best players in the world against smaller players, these bets are particularly useful.

Frame Bets: Bet on individual actions in a frame, from the first ball to be potted. Which person will win the first frame and what events will happen in the frame.

Best snooker tournaments for Betting

The snooker season runs from July to June each year and takes in tournaments such as the Masters, Champions League, Shanghai Masters and the World Snooker Championship.

These tournaments are highly contested as the world’s elite compete for huge prize money. It’s where you’re likely to find the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, John Higgins, Judd Trump and Ding Junhui reaching the final rounds.

Often these tournaments feature one-sided matches in the early rounds, which gives snooker betting fans the perfect opportunity to create accumulator bets featuring a string of high-ranking players. Accumulators are a great way to back favourites and boost your odds at the same time!

How to win a snooker bet

Winning a snooker bet requires you to back the right outcomes in a match or tournament. The most common and best snooker odds usually centre around who will win a specific match. In this scenario, you simply back a player you think will win their contest. The shorter the odds, the smaller your likely profit and the greater chance that player is to win!

Snooker can often pit players of varying abilities against each other, which means the ‘match result’ odds can be heavily weighted. Because of this, many punters wager on other markets such as Correct Score, Handicaps or even Frame betting.

These markets offer the potential of winning snooker bets at better odds, so that you make more profit. For example, backing a favourite to win with a -3.5 frame handicap means they need to win the match by four or more frames for you to win your bet. The up side of this is your odds are far better because of the handicap.

There is, of course, no guarantee you will win a snooker bet. But research, planning and reading the odds will certainly generate smarter decisions. Those seeking low-risk bets are more likely to back heavy favourites, while players who are chasing high profits will back underdogs.

Form, head-to-head records and updated stats are freely available online. What’s more, the snooker odds will give you a clear indication of who is the favourite and who is the underdog in any match.

Snooker Betting FAQs

What is the Difference between betting on snooker and pool

The difference between snooker and pool is fairly straightforward. While both games are played on a table with six pockets, in snooker the idea is to pot balls with numerical values and score the most points in a match. In pool, the aim is to pot all the balls and whoever sinks the final black is the victor.

Snooker is primarily played in the UK, Australia and China, while pool’s heartland is in the US and Canada.

Of course, there are other differences such as the colour and size of the table, the size of the balls, tournament structures and the popularity of each sport in different parts of the world. But the basics remain the same: strike the white ball with the cue and pot those balls!
