The World Snooker Championship Betting Tips

The U.K. Snooker Championship is just days away and following a thrilling Belfast Open, it’s all set to be a cracker.

The tournament is the second biggest after the World Championship and takes place each year at the splendid York Barbican.

There’s been rumours five-time winner Ronnie O’Sullivan won’t make it this year, instead pursuing his other business ventures. That of course would be a huge loss to the tournament, but there are plenty of others desperate to beat the U.K. Snooker Championship odds and claim victory.

Ronnie O’Sullivan

The World Number Four goes into the tournament as the favourite to win the UK Snooker Championship following two ranking title wins and finishing runner up in the Hong Kong Masters.

This year he scored his 30th ranking title and will go level with Steve Davis if he can claim a sixth title.

He’s 7/2 to win the title with Ladbrokes after starting the year with the Masters. Can he end it with the UK Championship?

Mark Selby

The Leicester man is ranked number one in the world and will be desperate to retain the championship for the first time in over 20 years.

Selby won the World Championship back in May, defending his title, so he’s got form.

4/1 says he can defend another title and claim two of the Triple Crown trophies.

Judd Trump

Trump is ranked number two in the world and won the European Masters earlier in the year.

The 28-year-old also reached the Final of the Shanghai Masters and was a Semi Finalist in the inaugural Hong Kong Masters.

Trump is 11/2 to win the title and could be well worth a free bet or two for the title.

John Higgins

John Higgins is no stranger to the UK Snooker Championship final and is 9/1 to claim the title again.

The Scot has won twice before but hasn’t been in the final since 2010.

Now ranked fifth in the world, Higgins started the year well picking up the Indian Open, while he also reached the Quarter Final in the Champion of Champions and Hong Kong Masters.

It would signify a real return to form for Higgins, although his recent knockout in the Northern Ireland Open may suggest this title could be one step too far.

Ding Junhui

Ding Junhui hasn’t won the UK Snooker Championship since 2009 and the Chinese star hasn’t had huge things to shout home about this year.

He’s at 10/1 to pinch the title this year having won the World Open although he has been suffering with his eyesight. He’s hoping to be fit for November 28th but it’ll be touch and go for the World Number Three.
