In recent years, the sport of snooker has enjoyed a big surge in popularity, with Barry Hearn chiefly responsible for raising the profile and also creating a series of big money tournaments played all over the world.

The biggest snooker tournament of them all is the World Snooker Championship, held at The Crucible in Sheffield in April. The world’s top sixteen players along with sixteen qualifiers compete over a longer frame format to determine who will be crowned world champion. The other two major tournaments that currently make up the Triple Crown are the UK Championship held at the Barbican in York and the Masters, a prestigious non-ranking event held at the Alexandra Palace in London.

What makes snooker a good betting sport?

When each tournament comes around, you can get on which player you think will win the competition. You can often profit by backing several players to win, especially if you are betting at bigger prices and opposing some of the favourites. Alternatively, there’s the chance to bet on outright markets such as Winner of Each Quarter, Highest Break or Winner without Mark Selby.

When it comes to the matches for each tournament, you can often place an accumulator bet on several players. Mark Selby, Judd Trump and Ding Junhui are often trading at short odds to win early round matches at tournaments, although they can be combined in a multiple bet and you can enjoy a profitable accumulator.

Other betting customers choose to bet on one match at a time. In addition to betting on Match Winner, you can also back a player on the handicap market. Mark Selby might be 1.33 to win a match for a first-to-ten-frames match, although you might get 1.91 that he wins with a -2.5 frames handicap which would mean he’d have to win 10-7 or better.

Can you bet on snooker In-Play?

Yes and there is often snooker live streaming available with betting companies such as bet365 and Paddy Power . The bookies regularly offer customers the chance to bet In-Play and the range of markets are staggering, with Match Winner, Handicap and Correct Frame Score among the options available.

In addition, you can choose to bet frame-to-frame on In-Play snooker markets such as Winner of Next Frame, Race to 30 Points, First Colour Potted and A Century to Be Scored. Betting on each frame can add a lot of excitement although it’s wise to be selective when it comes to the betting odds you select.

The chance to watch live streaming of the major snooker tournaments is a massive bonus to betting customers, especially as the matches often last several hours and it’s always good to be able to bet on this sport while being able to watch the action.

There are many shorter-frame formats in snooker tournaments and the Snooker Shootout has become a popular punting event due to the fact that each match is a race to one frame.
