With plenty of major snooker tournaments scheduled throughout the year, what you do tend to find when it is the turn of the UK Championship Snooker Tournament to start, is that there will be a couple of players that have been playing well during the year, and they tend to be the favourites to win that event.
That is certainly the case this year, and as such what I am going to be doing today is taking a look at some of the snooker players that are bang in form, and have a much greater chance of winning the UK Championship this year.
It is over at the William Hill betting site that you are going to have access to the following odds, so if any of the players mentioned and their respective odds do strike a chord with you then make sure that is where you choose to place your bets.
In fact, as this snooker tournament isn’t scheduled to start until the 27th of November 2018, then there could be some value to be had by backing a player each-way, much more so at Ladbrokes as they are paying one half the win odds on the place part of any each-way bets you place with them on their UK Championship betting market if your chosen players finishes in first or second place.
Ronnie O’Sullivan Current Favourite
There is not that much money currently being placed on the UK Championship snooker tournament, however the money that is being placed does appear to be going on Ronnie O’Sullivan.
To be fair though he has been playing right up to his very best form recently, and as such if you do fancy his chances, as quite a lot of punters do, then you can bag odds of 3/1 over at William Hill, but do be quick as those odds may drop in value if more punters do latch onto him.
Consider Backing Anyone Bar O’Sullivan
If you are prepared to take a few chances, in the hope that O’Sullivan doesn’t win the 2018 UK Champions snooker tournament, then you are certainly going to be rewarded with some high odds.
Take for example Mark Selby who is the current second favourite to win this snooker tournament, it will certainly be worth backing him to win and even back him each-way given as his odds are currently 6/1.
A few other players to consider backing at some even higher odds is the current third favourite John Higgins whose odds are 7/1, and he certainly has an excellent chance of reaching one of the top two positions of this tournament.
Judd Trump is another fairly reasonable bet 10/1 and at odds of 12/1 it could be the case that you fancy taking your chances on the likes of Ding Junhui or Mark Williams or even on Barry Hawkins or Neil Robertson who look fair bets too at odds of 16/1, much more so if you choose to back them each-way at William Hill thanks to those very favourable each-way terms!
