Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Mark Selby
The main draw for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 starts on April 15th and runs through to the Final on May 1st. This famous tournament is once again being staged at the equally famous Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. This is the final ranking event of the 2016/17 snooker season and going back into action as the defending champion this year is Mark Selby. Selby is trading as 4/1 joint-favourite with online betting site Coral for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017. He will be running in some confidence as well after claiming the China Open title recently, after edging out Mark Williams 10-8 in the final. That result incidentally, left Williams needing to go through qualifying for the World Championships 2017. That was a big result for the form of Selby, particularly because Judd Trump had crashed against the Iranian World Number 76 Hossein Vafaei in the quarter-finals. Selby has won the World Championships twice in the last three seasons now so is definitely going to take some good backing in his one. Judd Trump is still on the hunt for his first World Championship title. At last year’s event, Trump was stopped in the second round by Ding Junhui. But overall he has had a pretty decent season and punters have backed him into that 4/1 joint-favourite position in Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds alongside Selby. Selby is the number one seed for the tournament, with Judd Trump running as the second seed so they would be kept apart until the final. There is a price of 12/1 at Coral on a Mark Selby/Judd Trump Final at the Crucible this year. During qualifying, Reanne Evans was looking to become the first ever women to make it through to the main draw of the World Championship. She found herself embroiled in a marathon duel with Welshman Lee Walker though and despite fighting back from 6-1 down to 9-6 in the match and looking in control for most of it, she couldn’t finish the job. So while it is Trump and Selby trading at the head of the market, the field is stacked with potential in the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Mark Selby - it has been a big season from Selby, who completed his second Triple Crown, and the jester from Lester is tracking along to finish off the season in some style. He has bagged himself four ranking titles this season already and for many, he will be the frontrunner for the action at The Crucible, especially after his recent win in China. There is no-one can touch his form or success on the snooker circuit this season. Judd Trump - If success is measured only in titles, the Trump’s season has not been right up there. He has claimed the European Masters and the Players Championship titles this season, but his tally for the seasons could have been so much bigger because he has been to at least the semi-finals in six other tournaments this season. So he has been there or thereabouts but he hasn’t been able to convert often enough when the pressure has been at its highest. Perhaps the only thing working in his favour is that after his shock loss in the quarter-final in China recently, he will want to come back with something to prove. Ronnie O’Sullivan - You just never know what you are going to get from the Rocket. He emphatically won the Masters this season but that has been it from him. He really hasn’t had the greatest of seasons by any stretch of the imagination and in turning up at the Shanghai Masters recently, that was his first tournament appearance for five months. He is just a wild dark horse in the tournament and he is up in Selby’s half of the draw. He is a five-time World Champion, but he hasn’t quite been on his game this season. Ding Junhui - He was the runner-up to Selby in last season’s World Championship. Going off of his break-building performance at the Crucible last year he is going to be good outside bet. Ding was running pretty hot through the first half of the season, but he hasn’t been back to a final since losing to Mark Selby at the International Championship back in October last year. Neil Robertson - The Australian has had a disappointingly quiet season. He is a former World Champion but has been well short of that kind of quality this season. He is nothing more than an outsider at the moment for this one as he has suffered some strange setbacks such as his loss against Peter Lines in the UK Championship and getting whitewashed by Ronnie O’Sullivan in the European Masters. It hasn’t happened for him this season.

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Predictions

We are going on the basis of elimination in this one. Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson are better players than their current form is showing so they aren’t likely to make a huge impact, particularly in the crowded top half of the draw. The same can be said of Ronnie O’Sullivan who is going to have to pull out all of the stops and then some to work his way through a tough draw to get to the final alone. So that boils down to Trump and Selby. Of the two, Trump having been the nearly-man of the season, actually has a much easier path to the final than Selby does and that has to count for something. For that reason, simply because there are bigger hurdles in the way of Selby, we are going with Trump to show his mettle and respond to that shock defeat in China. Our dark horse each way bets for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 will be Marco Fu who had that great run at last season’s championships and who recently went to the final of the Players Championship and who won the Scottish Open this season, to have a good run. The other has to be third seed Stuart Bingham who could benefit hugely from the being in the easiest quarter of the draw.

Snooker Players Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Snooker Betting
The top sixteen snooker players in the world will be descending on the Venue Cymru in Llandudno for the March 6th start of the Snooker Players Championship 2017. The tournament was only started in 2011 when Shaun Murphy collected the inaugural title and it is Mark Allen who is the reigning champion but he is out of contention for qualification. The top 16 players on this season's one-year list will scrap it out to become the champion as well as landing the nice purse of the £125,000 top prize. Ronnie O’Sullivan headlines the opening night of action in Wales and he has never won this one. In fact no player has ever won the tournament more than once and Neil Robertson is the only man to have made it to two event finals, but he lost both of those. So who will come out on top in this year’s big clash which is the 16th ranking event of the 2016/17 snooker season? It is Mark Selby and Ronnie O’Sullivan who are early 9/2 joint favourites to go out and land themselves the title. Like O’Sullivan, this is a title which has eluded Selby. Selby has collected the UK Championship, the International Championship and the Paul Hunter Classic this season as well as having collected a couple of runners up places in ranking tournaments a well. As for O’Sullivan, he bust out that great win at the Masters for his only ranking success this season. Prior to that he had been stopped in the final of the Champion of Champions by John Higgins and in the final of the UK Championship by Selby. Interestingly you can’t look at last season’s form because neither were in the draw, with Selby withdrawing and O’Sullivan not in the top 32 in the Order of Merit.

Snooker Players Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds

Mark Selby 9/2, Ronnie o’Sullivan 9/2, Judd Trump 11/2, Ding Junhui 11/1, John Higgins 12/1, Neil Robertson 12/1, Barry Hawkins 16/1, Shaun Murphy 16/1, Marco Fu 20/1, Stuart Bingham 20/1, Alli Carter 25/1, bar 33/1.

Snooker Players Championship Betting 2017 Predictions

With limited history to look back at, including format chances, it’s hard to get a read on this one overall in terms of picking the outright winner. You would therefore have to look at the head of the market just to start digging into something. As well all know, O’Sullivan is capable of pulling out a great tournament, but his recent misfire in Germany will cast some doubts for punters and he hasn’t been to the final since his Master's success. So he is probably worth skipping over for this one. Selby is definitely the man of the season overall and looks the better value of the two really. But then at such a lean price and in such an open field in an unpredictable tournament, there’s nothing wrong will looking at bigger priced options in this one and that should lead you to Judd Trump who frankly should have won more tournaments this season than he has. He misfired in a second round exit in this one last season but he recently ran to the final of the Welsh Open in Cardiff and should be there or thereabouts in the final four for this go around. Digging down the field, Shaun Murphy looks a big value each way punt at 16/1 with William Hill. He was the inaugural winner of the tournament, back when it was called the Players Tour Championship Grand Finals in 2011 and he had a pretty decent run to the semi finals of last season’s edition. He has done nothing in terms of getting close to a title this season but may not make a bad shot in the each way market or just to Reach the Final. Ding Junhui is always a dangerous floater running at a price of 11/1. Then there is 12/1 on two-time losing finalist Neil Robertson as well. But overall our picks for the Snooker Players Championship Betting 2017 would be Selby as the strongest outright contender with a nice each way price sitting on Murphy.

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Prediction

Snooker Betting
It is off to Preston this week for the Snooker World Grand Prix and after his recent Masters triumph, it is Ronnie O'Sullivan who is rocketing ahead of the rest of the field to lead the betting at a price of 4/1 with bookmaker Ladbrokes. The action will go through to February 12th and the winner will be walking away with £100,000 in his pocket. This is a 32-man competition for the top 32 players on the one-year ranking list who get a precious spot in the tournament. The defending champion up is Shaun Murphy who edged out Stuart Bingham in last year’s epic final, claiming the title in a deciding frame. O’Sullivan was beaten by Michael Holt in the first round of last season’s action and with the Rocket surprisingly going out of the German Masters in the first round against Mark King last week, it may just send punters in the direction of opposing the favourite, which would make some sense for value here. Basically you never know how interesting O’Sullivan is going to be in a tournament. The interesting thing about this tournament at the Preston Guild Hall, is that there have only been the two previous editions and it only became a ranking tournament for the first time last year. The previous 2015 final saw Judd Trump taking out O’Sullivan in a thrilling final at Llandudno, Wales. So in this busy period of top action on the snooker circuit, who is the one who is most likely going to really oppose O’Sullivan in the betting market? Will it be 17/2 shot Judd Trump who becomes the first man to ever win the tournament twice or will it be the always-threatening Mark Selby who is the closest man to O’Sullivan in the Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds?

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 4/1, Mark Selby 9/2, Judd Trump 17/2, John Higgins 11/1, Ding Junhui 12/1, Neil Robertson 12/1, Marco Fu 18/1, Shaun Murphy 18/1, Barry Hawkins 20/1, 25/1 bar

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Prediction

So how do we break all of this one down? O’Sullivan was immense at the Masters, no-one looked close to touching and it was a fantastic sight seeing him control the baize so well and looking focused-in on his game. The Essex-born legend heads up to Lancashire though as a puzzle for punters. When he is on his game there is still no-one in the world who can get close to standing up to him, but then again, as he showed in his slump in the first round at the German Masters, he is liable to come unstuck. So that is probably the indicator which will send punters away from him and Mark Selby makes the most sense of all the chasing pack to be the one to lift the trophy. He is going into the tournament with more ranking points (actually more than double the amount of any other player) this season than any other competitor. He has won three ranking tournaments this season, so he has been carrying the form and should find himself in the quarter finals easily. Interestingly though, Selby, O'Sullivan and Judd Trump, along with Neil Robertson, are all lumped together inside the top half of the draw. So that makes things hit and miss completely. If you look at the other half of the Snooker World Grand Prix 2017 draw then you will see that Ding Junhui and Marco Fu both have good runs through to what would be a semi final clash between them. Taking our snooker betting fancy this week is Fu who has claimed the Scottish Open title this season and he went to the semifinals at the Masters recently. He is a big enough price to split each way in opposition to either O’Sullivan or Selby from the top half. The cluster of talent in the top half of the table is going to make for an exhausting run for one of those. Our tip would be just to run with the form, the consistent form that is, of Selby to edge his way through the mix from there.

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting
Arguably one of the most famous snooker tournaments in the world, The Masters, the biggest non-ranking tournament that is on the top of every player’s list, swings back into action this month. The action from the Alexandra Palace gets underway on January 15th and runs through to January 22nd. This is a relatively small tournament with just the sixteen players competing for the big prize, which is more about prestige and honour and being able to join that Masters winners club than it is about the money. Ronnie O’Sullivan goes back to the tournament as defending champion and is therefore top seed, while World Number One Mark Selby is second seed. The rest of the places in the Snooker Masters 2017 were then filled with the top sixteen in the world. Snooker Masters 2017 Infographic There is just the one player making his Masters debut this season and that is Kyren Wilson. The winner of the tournament will walk away with a cool £200,000 in prize money. Last season it was Ronnie O’Sullivan who landed the prize money as he smashed Barry Hawkins 10-1 in a bit of a non-contest in the final. That was O'Sullivan's first tournament back after eight months away from the game and he still destroyed the field. O’Sullivan is 11/8 at Coral to go out and sweep the Ally Pally field again. Will the Rocket be able to hold on to his title? Last season we also saw arguably the greatest ever Masters match up in the quarter final between Judd Trump and Neil Robertson, with six 100+ breaks in the 11-frame match. For the last decade the winners circle hasn’t been attended by a wide variety of players as seven of the last ten editions have been won by either Mark Selby or Ronnie O’Sullivan. Will the Rocket be able to set a new record of seven Masters titles won during his career? He currently sits level on six titles with Stephen Hendry.

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Draw

You have to look at the draw of course for some betting planning because if there are big early clashes between two contenders, then you have to put some further consideration in. Obviously the top two seeds, O’Sullivan and Selby are on opposite sides of the draw so they could only meet up in the final. They have met three times before in the final of the Masters and Selby holds a 2-1 head to head lead from those clashes. Selby has a little bit of an easier route to the final than O’Sullivan does in this one. Selby opens against 15th seed Mark Williams and then would face either Shaun Murphy or last year’s losing finalist Barry Hawkins in the second road. The highest seed that Selby would have to get past on the way to the final is third seed Stuart Bingham, although Ding Junhui remains a dangerous floater in the half. As for O’Sullivan he could meet up with Neil Robertson in the quarter final sand then have to go through either Judd Trump or John Higgins in the semi finals. The Rocket opens against 12th seed Liang Wenbo. So O’Sullivan could be facing tougher games down the line than what Shelby is going to have to do. It’s a tougher run for O’Sullivan that what it was last year, that's for sure, despite beating Selby in the quarter finals. First Round Masters 2017 Draw Ronnie O’Sullivan v Liang Wenbo Neil Robertson v Ali Carter Judd Trump v Marco Fu John Higgins v Mark Allen Stuart Bingham v Joe Perry Ding Junhui v Kyren Wilson Shaun Murphy v Barry Hawkins Mark Selby v Mark Williams

Snooker Masters 2017 To Reach Final Betting Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 5/4, Mark Selby 7/4, John Higgins 3/1, Judd Trump 3/1, Ding Junhui 9/2, Neil Robertson 5/1, Shaun Murphy 7/1, Stuart Bingham 10/1, Barry Kiwanis 14/1, Mark Allen 14/1, Marco Fu 14/1, 20/1 bar

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Predictions

It has pretty much been Selby and O’Sullivan dominating this for some time. Only Shaun Murphy in 2015, Neil Robertson in 2012 and Ding Junhui in 2011 have managed to break them up. However, this year we are going to go outside of the box and suggest that there is some massive dark horse value running in Judd Trump at 3/1 with Coral. Well, he’s not exactly a dark horse, but he was in cracking form in last year’s Masters, but that epic quarter final took something out of him and then he went down to Barry Hawkins surprisingly in the semi’s. He should be back stronger for that experience this year and even though he is lumped in the congested top half, with eyes and pressure on others, he could slide through. Look for Selby to still dominate the bottom half of the draw as there’s no clash with Ronnie O’Sullivan until the final potentially for him this season. This is likely to be a wide open tournament and ultimately it may just boil down to whether or not O'Sullivan is in the mood. But the Rocket is too short of a price in the outright, so look for Trump or Selby to rule.

Snooker Betway UK Championship 2016 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting
One of the biggest dates on the calendar year for snooker is with us in mid November. The UK Championship 2016 will bring a high quality, high intensity tournament to the season and the big guns will be pushing to land the prestigious tournament. The tournament generally throws up some cracking snooker and Australia's Neil Robertson will head back to the Barbican Centre in York, to defend the title that he picked up last year in beating out Liang Wenbo 10-5 in the final. Robertson is a 10/1 shot to win the title again this year with online betting site Bet Victor. The winner of the UK Championship 2016 will walk away with a £170,000 prize in his pocket and this is the 10th ranking tournament of the season. This is an enormous tournament with 128 players scrapping it out in the first round of the tournament. So there is a very long road to the final in this one and it’s not usually until the round of 64 that things really start getting interesting in the tournament. But the more predictable match ups in the first round of action can actually lead to some great in-play betting opportunities. Heading up the outright winner market in UK Championship 2016 Betting is Ronnie O’Sullivan at a price of 7/2 and that's not a price that will particularly attract a lot of punters. O’Sullivan hasn’t been hanging around the winner's circle of tournaments like he used to when he was dominating the game. He’s more around when the interest in the game is there as opposed to having the mentality of going out and having to win everything. O’Sullivan, should he win this year, would land his sixth title after having won the title on each of his five previous appearances in the final. Former Champion Mark Selby is a price of 13/2 to land the win, with Judd Trump at 6/1 and Ding Junhui at 7/1. Those are the main contenders, but this is such a long grind that you can start looking at the outside chances of the likes of John Higgins, who is carrying some form and Shaun Murphy at 14/1. The rest of the field then are running at a price of 28/1 or bigger to come through the pack for the victory. But this generally a tournament where the top seeds come through with Trump, Selby, Robertson and O'Sullivan having shared the last five titles between them. It's not often at all that an underdog come through.

Snooker Betway UK Championship 2016 Betting Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 4/1, Mark Selby 5/1, Judd Trump 13/2, Ding Junhui 7/1, Neil Robertson 10/1, Shaun Murphy 18/1, John Higgins 20/1, Stuart Bingham 22/1, 33/1 bar

Snooker Betway UK Championship 2016 Draw

So there is a massive field here at the Barbican Centre and you can break your betting down into sections. You will find a high seed in each of the eight sections and top seed Neil Robertson is the big gun in the first section. Ronnie O’Sullivan goes in the second section which means that down the line, there could be a quarter final clash between Robertson and O’Sullivan. From section three and four respectively you would have Ding Junhui and Judd Trump on a quarter final collision course and then the winner of that would square off against the winner of the potential, Robertson v O’Sullivan match up in final four. So there is no easy path to the final that’s for sure from the key players in the top half of the draw, although it would be a big surprise if they weren’t all there at that quarter final stage. Stuart Bingham heads up the fifth section and Shaun Murphy in section 6 in the top part of the bottom half of the draw. Those actually look very wide opens sections of the draw really with some notable contenders floating around like Barry Hawkins, last year’s losing finalist Liang Wenbo and Graeme Dott. That is the area of the draw which looks like a bit of a crap shoot, which is good news for the bottom section of the bottom half of the draw. John Higgins is top seed in the seventh section, opposing Mark Selby in the eighth section. So those two could potentially clash up in the quarter finals, which may well lead to the winner of that having a relatively comfortable semi final opponent from the weaker top half of the bottom half of the draw. The first four rounds of the Snooker Betway UK Championship 2016 is all over 11 frames. That continues then through the quarter finals and the semi finals, but the final itself steps up to the best of 19 frames. The Final will be contested on December 4th and split between and afternoon and evening session.

Snooker Betway UK Championship 2016 Betting Prediction

It is worth a look at the previous nine ranking tournaments across the season to see where the titles have gone to. Of the main contenders for the UK Championship 2016, you have Neil Robertson, Mark Selby, Judd Trump, Ding Junhui all having won a ranking even this season. Of them, Selby is the only one to have claimed two this season with the title in the recent International Championship to add to his Paul Hunter Classic win back in August. So you would be leaning towards Selby with form and perhaps Ding Junhui, who ranking win came at the end of September at the Shanghai Masters and that followed a win at the Six-Red World Championship. You have had an English or Chinese winner in eight of the last nine tournament (ranking and unranking) this season. So there is that to look at and of course, the history of the UK Championship itself. This is where O’Sullivan comes into play a little but but he's been to the final just once in the last eight seasons so is worth skipping over. Mark Selby has been to two of the last four finals and Judd Trump has been to two of the last five finals. Australia’s Neil Robertson has been to two of the last three. So again, going back to something we mentioned earlier, you are leaning towards the top ranking players in the game. Now to break it down further and we would be looking at Mark Selby to come through the field. He has one of the more comfortable draws and looks as solid wager as he is a steady performer in the UK Championship. His confidence should be high as well after his recent win at the International Championship. Mark Selby 6/1 outright at Bet Victor is our tip.

Snooker World Championship 2016 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting
The final ranking tournament of the snooker season gets underway on April 16th. The Snooker World Championship 2016 is the crowning jewel of the season and one of the most prestigious and famous titles that can be won in the sport. The hype in last season’s tournament was all about Ronnie O’Sullivan but he was dumped out of the competition from eventual winner Stuart Bingham. So Bingham will be the one out for a title defence at the Crucible in the Snooker World Championship 2016. He showed a bit of from in going to the final of the World Grand Prix in March, but he missed out there to Shaun Murphy and hasn’t followed up his World Championship title from last season with a ranking event win this term. So that has left Stuart Bingham down the pecking order when it comes to the outright winner market for Snooker World Championship 2016 betting at a price of 28/1. Heading up the market is Ronnie O’Sullivan who is looking for his sixth World Championship title and he is off at a price o f7/4 with online betting site Bet365 for the event. Neil Robertson and Judd Trump are back at a price of 6/1, Robertson looking to add to his 2010 title while Trump is still looking for his first but goes into the tournament in form after winning the China Open. So Trump has a little bit of form going for him with that China Open win, which came after a Championship League title in March. Ronnie O’Sullivan won the Welsh Open in February while as for Neil Robertson, he has won two titles this season, the ranking UK Championship as well as the Champion of Champions tournament. They are the heavyweights, while Shaun Murphy will be a dangerous floater in the field at 12/1 while Ding Junhui is talking a big game who had to come through qualifiers (and do so in fantastic form) to get back to the Crucible.

Snooker World Championship 2016 Draw

The qualifiers took place from April 6th through 13th and Ding Junhui was the highest profile player through there. He dropped only seven games in his three qualifying rounds to make it back to the Crucible after dropping down the world rankings to have to go through qualifying to get back to the Crucible. What makes things interesting about Ding is that he will be eligible to face any of the top sixteen players in the first round and no-one will be wanting that. Shaun Murphy was the last winner of the Snooker World Championship as a qualifier. The 32 players (the top sixteen in the world automatically qualify) will be joined by the sixteen qualifiers who have made it to the crucible. The top seed is reigning champion Stuart Bingham after his victory last season. The first round of the Snooker World Championship 2016 is over 19 frames while the second round and the quarter finals are both over the best of 25 frames. The semi finals go over the best of 33 frames and the final goes a little longer being the best of 35 frames. The final of the Snooker World Championship 2016 will be played over May 1st and 2nd.

Snooker World Championship History and Stats

This is the 40th season that the Snooker World Championship will be held at the Crucible so there is a long history between the event and the Sheffield arena. The most number of titles won at the world Championship has long been held by the great Joe Davis who claimed 15 titles in his career (all consecutive too!). None of the modern day greats can even get close to that with the retired Stephen Hendry at seven titles though his illustrious career including a five-year winning streak at the Crucible. Along with Joe Davis, the only ones ahead of Hendry’s tally of World Titles are Fred Davis and John Pulman with 8 each. Ronnie O’Sullivan is on five titles and recently Stuart Bingham said that while O'Sullivan is the best player in the game at the moment, he’s not the greatest, that honour falling to Hendy because of his number of titles. Ronnie O’Sullivan has been in three of the last four finals, winning two of them. England have produced the highest amount of World Champions as well as the highest tally of titles. There have been twelve English winners of the World Championship Snooker, combining for a total of 51 titles.

Snooker World Championship 2016 Prediction

The draw makes things a little interesting here because you have Neil Robertson and Judd Trump together in the second quarter. So one of the big guns will be missing out on the semi finals. So that makes things a little unpredictable in backing either of them because of a huge hurdle that they could both face, as they would be on course for a quarter final clash. There's a similar story in the third quarter with Shaun Murphy and Ronnie O’Sullivan set for a quarter final showdown, although The Rocket would be heavy favourite to win that matchup. So down in the bottom quarter of the draw is where we are going to find our prediction for the Snooker World Championship 2016 and that is Mark Selby. The 2014 champion has a quarter that he could navigate his way through pretty comfortably. That would put him on course for a semi final against the winner of O’Sullivan’s quarter but Selby took O'Sullivan down at the Circle in the 2014 final and that may be a guide.

Snooker Players Championship 2016 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting
The 2015/16 snooker season is drawing to a close. There is just the China Open and the then World Snooker Championship to follow for the season after the Snooker Players Championship has had its run over the next week. This is a ranking snooker event (the eighth of the season) as well and it runs from March 22nd through to the 27th up in Manchester. The event this year has an unfamiliar scenario where the reigning champion isn’t back to defend his title. That is because last year’s winner Joe Perry failed to qualify back for the Finals. There is a whole of qualifying to be done to get to the finals because the Players Tour Championship is a series of snooker events, held across two continents Europe and Asia. Prize money earned from appearances in the European Tour Events on the Players Tour Championship calendar all go towards an Order Of Merit and the top 24 from that get to make it to the finals from the European side of things and they are joint from the top two coming from the Asian Tour of Merit. Yes, that’s only 26 players and so there is a mix of another six players coming in from both Orders Of Merit as qualifiers too, rounding out to 32 players. That having all been settled, it is Judd Trump who is running as 4/1 outright favourite for the Finals. There is no Ronnie O’Sullivan because he doesn’t bother competing in the PTC events, or at least hasn’t done this season. Because it is just a European and Asian event as well, there are other notable absentees like Australia’s Neil Robertson. So it’s not the most talented of line ups, not like one you will see at the World Championships later in the year, but it’s still some good competitive action on the cards. Following Judd Trump in the outright betting market is Shaun Murphy at 5/1 and then Mark Allen and Ding Junhui coming in at 9/1, the only other two players under double figures.

Snooker Players Championship 2016 Draw

So there is a long process to get to the Snooker Players Championship 2016 that the players have to go through, having to roll through seven minor-ranking events in order to pick up the points to make it high enough into the Order of Merit. In this season’s Snooker Players Championship 2016 draw it does get interesting because outright favourite to win the title Judd Trump is actually only seeded 24th in the draw and leading the way is second seed Barry Hawkins, who is the highest ranked player in the draw because Mark Selby, the overall top seed in the Order Of Merit, withdrew. The event is a straight knockout tournament with the first round going over just the best of seven games. It stays that way through the last sixteen and the quarter finals as well, so it is quite a rapid-fire type of tournament. Things get extended out to the best of 11 frames in the semifinals and then the Final itself is a full on affair of the best of 19 frames.

Snooker Players Championship History and Stats

There’s not a lot of history to go by on this one as it is a fairly never event. The first Snooker Players Championship held in 2010 when Shaun Murphy went to the final and beat Martin Gould 4-0. The previous finals have only been over the best of seven frames until things got tweaked this season. Actually three of the four previous Snooker Players Championship finals have been won by a 4-0 scoreline. Stephen Lee won it in 2012 with a victory over Neil Robertson and again Neil Robertson was thwarted at the final hurdle a year later when he was beaten by Ding Junhui in the final. Barry Hawkins claimed the 2014 title before Joe Perry took down Mark Williams in last season’s final which was held in Bangkok. Because it is a fairly new event there has been significant changes in its format down the few years that it has been running, with changes to the Order Of Merit and who it accommodates in the tournament. It is an event which looks as if it is still finding its feet.

Snooker World Grand Prix 2016 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting
Another big snooker tournament rolling our way for 2016 and next up on the list of ranking events is the Snooker World Grand Prix 2016. This wasn’t one of the ranking tournaments on last season’s snooker season but it is now. The tournament is being held at Venue Cymru in Llandudno, Wales with a total prize fund of £300,000 up for grabs and a third of that is going to the winner alone. The tournament starts on March 8th and runs through to the 13th. Heading back to the event as the defending champion is Judd Trump. There will be just the three ranking events left for the remainder of the 2015/16 season, the Players Tour Championship Finals, the China Open and the World Snooker Championship to follow. Judd Trump actually carries some nice form into the Snooker World Grand Prix 2016 title defence as he took a win over Ronnie O’Sullivan in the Championship League in early March (a non ranking event). Ronnie O’Sullivan is back in the field and he has taken over the market running at a price of 2/1 outright favourite. After his win at the Welsh Open and his triumph at the Masters on his return there this year, he is probably going to take some stopping. To put his favouritism into context you have Neil Robertson and Mark Selby both around the 7/1 mark to take the title, with Judd Trump at 8/1.

Snooker World Grand Prix 2016 Betting Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 2/1, Neil Robertson 7/1, Mark Selby 7/1, Judd Trump 8/1, John Higgins 18/1, Shuan Murphy 22/1, Mark Allen 25/1, Barry Hawkins 33/1, Ding Junhui 33/1, bar 40/1

Draw Format

This event is for the top 32 ranked players in the world and the seeds come together from the opposite ends to meet up in matches. So for example, number one seed John Higgins faces number thirty two seed Stephen Maguire, number two seed Neil Robertson faces number thirty-one seed Peter Ebdon and so on until you meet in the middle with number sixteen Matthew Selt taking on seventeenth seed Ryan Day. It is a straight knockout format with the best of seven frame matches being played for the first round, the last sixteen and the quarter finals. The semi finals then step it up to the best of 11 frames and then the final of the Snooker World Grand Prix 2016 will be contested over 19 frames.

Snooker World Grand Prix History and Stats

The tournament started back in 1982 and it has gone through some changes since then. Incidentally, Ray Reardon was the inaugural winner of the event and winners following on from him reads as a who’s-who of snooker, with Stephen Hendry, Steve Davis, Jimmy Whites and John Higgins all having lifted the title. Ronnie O'Sullivan is a former winner as well, but his only triumph at the event came back in 2004 when he beat Ian McCulloch 9-5 in the final. he has lost his other four appearances in the final of the event. Here’s a great bit of trivia, the 1985 final contested between Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor has gone down in history as the longest ever one-day final. It took over ten hours for them to settle the score (Davis taking a 10-9 victory). John Higgins scored four consecutive century breaks in the 2005 final. The only players to have won the Snooker World Grand Prix four times is John Higgins and Stephen Hendry. It is a tournament which has gone through a lot of changes when back in the day, the top 32 players entering at the round of 64 meaning that more upsets were caused. Then it was switched to group stages which caused even more random matches and results and it even went to an FA Cup style draw when it went back to a knockout format in 2008.

Snooker World Grand Prix 2016 Predictions

Strangely, for reasons unknown, Ronnie O’Sullivan has failed to deliver when it counts at the Snooker World Grand Prix. Four finals he has lost, which is a pretty poor strike rate from him. He has been on top of his game this year though as his easy win at the Masters and the Welsh Open proves. At such short odds though he really isn’t going to a tremendous amount of value to be throwing wagers at. That having been said, you don’t want to be backing a player who could potentially run into O'Sullivan before the final, so look in the opposite half of the draw. You have Mark Selby, Judd Trump and John Higgins all up there. Trump beat O’Sullivan recently in the Championship League and he is the defending champion of the Snooker World Grand Prix and trading at a chunky 8/1 price to defend his title it’s worth an each way shot on him.

Snooker World Championship 2015 Odds and Predictions

Snooker Betting
The Snooker World Championship 2015 will be taking centre stage from the Crucible in Sheffield once again, and it is the final ranking event in the 2014/15 season. The first round action starts on April 18th and it Ronnie O’Sullivan who is running as 2/1 favorite to walk away with the title. O’Sullivan has won the title five times before in his career and has fired off three 147’s at the tournament as well, his most recent coming in 2008. O’Sullivan has won two of the last three editions of the World Championship and made it back to the final last year in search of three wins on the bounce, but was stopped by Mark Selby 14-18. Selby is running out at 8/1 and he goes as top seed and therefore in the opposite half of the draw to O’Sullivan. It’s actually not too bad of a draw for Selby, who should be a confirmed quarter finalist you would imagine, and then a semi final would likely be against fourth of fifth seed Neil Robertson or Barry Hawkins respectively. With O’Sullivan unlikely to be troubled too much in his fourth quarter, it is the third quarter of the draw which makes the most interesting in Snooker World Championship 2015 betting, because it houses both third seed Ding Junhui and sixth seed Judd Trump. The winner of that quarter would then have to face up to O’Sullivan most likely in the final four. So not an easy path to the final there for Trump, who has held ground at 6/1 in the outright winner market, with Ding Junhui way out at 16/1 with online bookmaker Boylesports.

Ronnie O’Sullivan 2/1, Neil Robertson 6/1, Judd Trump 6/1, Mark Selby 8/1, Shaun Murphy 11/1, Ding Junhui 16/1, 25/1 bar Because of the setup of the draw, you can take a nice early look at the Name The Finalists market for your Snooker World champions 2015 betting. If O’Sullivan continues his brilliant form at the Crucible, then you would pair him up with either Neil Robertson at 7/1 or an O’Sullivan/Selby final at 9/1 with Boylesports. Fourth seed Neil Robertson should have full command of the second quarter of the draw and could clash with Selby in the semi finals.

2013 Shanghai Masters Snooker Betting Odds, Tips and Preview

Bet Victor
2013 Shanghai Masters Snooker Betting Info  The third ranking tournament of the 2013 snooker season will be the Shanghai Masters. Betting for the outright winner has already been pretty active and with a massive purse up for grabs for the winning player, the action at the Shanghai Grand Stage should produce plenty of snooker betting value for you.
Latest 2013 Shanghai Masters Snooker Betting Prices at online bookmaker Bet Victor  Neil Robertson 5/1, Judd Trump 6/1, Mark Selby 6/1, John Higgins 7/1, Mark Allen 12/1, Ding Junhui 14/1, Shaun Murphy 14/1, Stephen Maguire 18/1
2013 Shanghai Masters Snooker Betting Favourite  Neil Robertson, out and out takes ascendancy here for your snooker betting. He has been to the final of the two ranking events so far this season, winning the Wuxi Classic against John Higgins and then missing out in the final of the Australian Goldfields Open to Marco Fu. Not only did he go well in China at this season's Wuxi Classic, he won the China Open towards the end of last season as well, so seems to like it out East. Robertson has consistently been one of the best players in the ranking tournaments over the last year or so, and takes an edge in the market at 5/1 with online bookmaker Bet Victor.
2013 Shanghai Masters Snooker Betting Tips  The defending champion taking centre stage will be Scotland's John Higgins, who will be looking forward to a return to China. As the Shanghai Masters is the second ranking event to be held in China this year, Higgins can look back to his run to the final of the Wuxi Classic earlier this year for some confidence. He was beaten in the final there by Neil Robertson, and after not even making it to the second ranking tournament of the year, the Australian Goldfields Open, he'll want to prove himself again. Although on the back of his win at the Shanghai Masters last season, he has reason to be confident.
History won't be on his side though as no player has ever won the Shanghai Masters back to back. So that may give an advantage to someone else. Granted the tournament is still in its relative infancy, only starting back in 2007. So bettors may instead decide to lean towards young Judd Trump instead. Trump was last year's losing finalist of the Shanghai Masters, going down to John Higgins in the final only on a deciding frame. Now, he hasn't won the title there before but he has motivation, because on his earlier visit to China this season in the Wuxi Classic he went out in a first round shock exit against a home grown talent Li Hang. Not only that, Trump didn't get to the second ranking event of the season in Australia either.
While Trump needs to step up his ranking game therefore, Mark Selby may be a more solid bet. He should be up there alongside Trump and favourite Robertson. Unlike Trump, Selby has tasted success at the Shanghai Masters before, wining the title back in 2011 against Mark Williams. Selby did even worse at the Wuxi Classic this season than Trump did, losing in the qualifying round there against Andrew Pagett. He was back in top form though with a run to the semi finals of the Australian Goldfields Open. So being a past winner and decent form, Selby should be a threat for the 2013 Shanghai Masters.
Those are the bulk of the main threats represented in the 2013 Shanghai Masters snooker odds at Bet Victor. Really there are four strong players in Higgins, Selby, Trump and Robertson who you will look for first of all for your snooker betting. But just as Marco Fu took the Goldfields this season, the upsets happen fairly regularly. You can therefore consider longer shots like Ding Junhui on his home soil, Barry Hawkins, Graeme Dott and Shaun Murphy.
