You only have a couple days left to bet on the UK Snooker Championship, so let’s take a look at all the betting odds set by NetBet!
One of the biggest snooker tournaments in the UK is just a couple of days away, and now is a better time than ever to place your bet on the winner. The odds are already set, so let’s take a look at the betting favorite, and some promising underdogs.
As usual, a number of seasoned veterans will be taking part in the UK championship. Fan-favorite Ronnie O’Sullivan hopes to make UK gambling news by becoming just the second man in history to win the tournament 6 times. He is widely considered to be the best Snooker player alive, and is the NetBet betting favorite with odds of 33/10.
Australian player Neil Robertson is another snooker betting favorite with odds of 13/2. Robertson is the UK Championship’s reigning champion, and also took first place in 2013. Robertson is the top snooker player in Australia, and would join a group of just 4 other players to have won the UK Championship more than 2 times.
Underdogs to keep an eye on
There are over 50 players taking part in the 2016 UK Championship, and a number of interesting underdogs have emerged. Mark Selby is a player that many analysts and fans of online sports betting in the UK through sites like NetBet are picking as the dark horse of the tournament. The Leicester native became a professional in 1999, and fifteen years later became just the ninth player in history to win all three of the Snooker Triple Crown Events. His odds to win are 6/1.
Another great option for a bet on the UK Snooker Championship is Ali Carter. He is considered by some to be the least-likeliest champion in British snooker history, but over the years has been ranked as high as second in the World Rankings. Carter’s odds to win are 45/1.
The final snooker betting underdog we will look at is the 2011 UK Championship runner-up, Mark Allen. The 11-year professional is ranked number eight in the world, and recently became the first Northern Irish player to win a ranking event in the UK since Dennis Taylor won the World Title in 1985. A betting website in Ireland might tell you Allen will win this year, but he remains a heavy underdog with odds of 25/1.
