Crucible World Snooker Championship Betting Tips
The Crucible in Sheffield is the venue once again for the pinnacle of the snooker calendar. Betting this year is a little more open than in previous years as Ronnie O’Sullivan has shown signs of fallability all season, including a first round knockout in the China Open. Genie is here to bring you through the odds and betting tips for the for the outright market of the world snooker championship.
Current Champion, John Higgins is a very close secoond favourite this year to Ronnie O’Sullivan, having had a stellar season of results, without being particularly spectacular.
However Ronnie has proven most dangerous in the past when coming in cold, so to speak. He started the 2007/08 season very well with victories in Nothern Ireland and at the UK Snooker Championship but tailed off in the months leading up to the tournament with early exits in a few tournaments. Unibet famously went 5/1 about O’Sullivan winning the tournament and were made to pay for underestimating the greatest player of all time.
Having watched Ronnie quite a lot this year he seems to be queuing fairly well in general and he does have an appetite for the game, more than last year for sure. He is the most intriguing interviewee and often comments on the Snooker World Championships; saying that his aim for the entire season is only really to win that. Having recently spoken oput in favour of Barry Hearns proposals to sex up the game Ronnie O’Sullivan will be looking to put on a show for his adoring public.
Over the longer matches the cream should rise to the top. 7/2 on Ronnie winning is certainly a massive price. He should really be going off at 6/4, given the obvious class difference between him and the field.
