Snooker Championships League betting tips favor biggest stars to win the tournament
Online sportsbooks in the UK are giving the smallest odds for the victory of reigning world champion and world No1 Judd Trump. He has the odds of 3.00 at the 1xBet Sportsbook to win it. In the 2019/20 season Trump has already won six ranking tournaments, which is an all-time record. He was in top form before the break and looks like he can continue in the same level. He has already won his group on Monday and reached the last 16.
There he can meet one of the sport’s biggest figures, Ronnie O’Sullivan who has the odds of 5.00 to win the tournament. The five-time World Champion is only 7th in the world ranking at the moment. He has won just one non-ranking event, the Shanghai Masters this season. O’Sullivan reached the final of the Championship League last time in 2016, but he hasn’t taken part in it since. He will play in Group 10 on Friday, when we can see how much he has been affected by the break.
Other favorites who can win the event
Australian Neil Robertson, the current world No2 is also in the favorites in the Snooker Championship League betting tips. He has the odds of 5.00. on 1xBet Sportsbook. The World Champion from 2010 has a bad start in the beginning of the season. But it all changed after this year’s Masters. Since then he has won the European Masters and the World Grand Prix. He also reached the final of the German Masters. Robertson will only play on Sunday, in the last group. So had a few more days to get used to the atmosphere and the new special conditions.
Online gambling sites in the UK are also mentioning another English favorite, Mark Selby with a chance to win the event. He has the odds of 9.00. Selby was leading the world ranking for more than four years between 2014 and 2019. Currently he is in 4th place. In the 2019/20 season he is not doing so great. Although he managed to win the English and Scottish Open last year, in 2020 he hasn’t achieved any remarkable results. But the three-time World Champion has a table at home, so he could practice in the last few weeks as well unlike most of the field.
