Snooker World Championship Betting
Snooker's most anticipated tournament comes with an extensive range of betting odds for outright and in-play betting markets.
From 1969 onwards, the Snooker World Championship has taken on a knockout format, where 32 players go head-to-head in the hopes of progressing towards the final.
To qualify for the Snooker World Championship, 16 players must win their places by going through a qualification tournament. The other 16 places are awarded to the top 16 players in the Snooker world rankings.
As Snooker's most grand tournament, the competition lasts over a period of 17 days, with the first rounds beginning on 19 frames and slowly increasing to the penultimate final of 35 frames. To win the tournament, players do not need to complete all 35 frames. Instead, they only need to win more than half.

In-Play Snooker World Championship Odds
The World Championship offers a great selection of in-play bets, given the frequency at which the Snooker odds are updated on the markets. During the first round of the competition, games are played over 19 frames which is the lowest amount in the competition. Due to the high amount of frames, there are more varying possibilities for in-play betting options.
Over/Under - For each new frame, you can predict whether a player will score over or under a set amount of points.
Winner of a frame - Throughout the game, there are bets that allow you to predict who will win the upcoming frame. Many punters opt for live betting as it offers the chance to see how the game is progressing before predicting who will win upcoming frames.
Next colour to pot - For each shot that is taken, you can predict which colour ball will be potted next by the player. This is one of the more random bet selections in the live betting market, with little information to back the decision-making.
