Snooker Betting at William Hill
When the players head out onto the green baize, a large number of snooker betting opportunities arise.
Whether it’s any of the Triple Crown events – the World Championship, UK Championship and the Masters – or any of the lesser events that feature on the annual calendar, a variety of snooker odds can be taken advantage of for them all.
These betting markets will feature all of the household names of the snooker landscape, including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby and Neil Robertson, alongside the likes of Judd Trump and Kyren Wilson, who are beginning to fulfil their potential in the sport.
Getting the latest snooker odds is essential
One of the unique selling points when it comes to snooker betting is the immediacy at which odds are available once a match is in progress.
Numerous betting markets are available throughout every frame, ranging from the colour of the first ball to be potted, whether a particular player will make a century break and which player will eventually win the frame.
Obviously with these in-play markets, the live snooker odds change after every ball is potted.
The issue to be aware of from a betting perspective, particularly for those following the action on TV, is that the coverage will not be completely live. Instead, there will be a time delay of a few seconds.
When looking to place a snooker bet, this should be taken into consideration. For example, if a player is eyeing up a long-range pot, this shot may have already been missed and the market updated in real time, although the footage shows the same player preparing to play the shot.
How to win betting on snooker?
In any walk of life, people have off days. This is no different, even for snooker players positioned towards the top of the world rankings.
Therefore, with in-play snooker betting odds, there’s no substitute for a player passing the eye test.
Give it a frame or two to see if their safety play is up to scratch in terms of the cue ball nestling near to the top cushion and assess whether their positional play is on point when amongst the balls, boosting their chances of winning a frame in a single visit.
If a player keeps running out of position and is fighting hard to make a break of 30, it may not be their day.
Use the snooker scoreboard
Anyone looking at the William Hill snooker betting will see the live in-play scorecard, once the break off shot has been played for the opening frame.
This is a valuable resource for in-match statistics, regardless of whether the live game is being watched or not.
Among the information available is how many shots each player has taken in the match, how many balls they’ve both potted, their time at the table as a percentage, the colours of the balls potted and the match situation.
Such data could prove an invaluable source of betting advice if assessed correctly.
More snooker betting tips
There’s no substitute for conducting research before placing a snooker bet.
Has a player enjoyed some time off to recharge their batteries or is there a risk of burn out after spending the last few months travelled around the world chasing rankings points and prize money?
Is a player struggling mentally with their game after a run of early eliminations or are they riding the crest of a wave after a stream of positive performances?
As with every sport, a useful betting tip is to locate the head-to-head record of the two players preparing to face off, as one may have a track record of holding the upper hand over another.
Another is to check the match facts of any recent game the players have been involved in, particularly if they took place earlier in the same tournament.
If a player whitewashed an opponent and scored multiple centuries in the process, this is a clear indication of good form. Alternatively, if they scrambled to a narrow win in a long match without making a break above 50, this level of form isn’t so attractive from a snooker betting perspective.
Check all of the Snooker World Championships odds
In terms of the biggest events on the annual snooker calendar, none rank above the World Championship, played each year at The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
The tournament runs for just over two weeks, typically beginning in mid-to-late April and the final played over two days in May.
Given that all matches are played over a longer format, with first-round matches being over a best-of-19 frames, strong mental resolve is required to perform well.
Analysing the draw is also pivotal when looking into any Snooker World Championship odds, as undoubtedly one section of the draw will be loaded with a greater number of perceived stronger players than another.
With a session at the Crucible lasting eight frames, it often requires multiple sessions to find a winner, especially as the event reaches its latter stages. Between sessions is a good time to place any match bets.
Masters snooker odds and more
As previously mentioned, there are two other big events throughout the snooker season which help make up the sport’s Triple Crown.
The Masters is the first to kick off a calendar year, as it’s played in January, although the UK Championship comes first in a season around the November/December period.
Among the more interesting and diverse events on the calendar is the Snooker Shoot-Out. Each match is settled over a single frame, the draw is random after each round and each match lasts 10 minutes.
Players are only allowed 15 seconds per shot for the first half of the frame, at which point this is reduced to just 10 seconds for the remainder.
How does each-way snooker betting work?
Each-way snooker betting is available when placing a bet on the tournament winner. Each-way bets are paid out on the two tournament finalists, at 1/2 of the original odds.
For example, a £10 each-way bet on Mark Selby winning the World Championship at 8/1 would cost £20 - £10 on him winning and £10 on him placing.
Should Selby lose in the final, the win portion of the each-way bet would be a loser. However, the place part would be a winner and paid out at 4/1 (1/2 of the original odds).
That means the payout would be £50 - £40 in profit and the original £10 from the place part of the snooker bet.
