Now I do know that the number of punters out there who do regularly place bets and wagers on pool matches and pool tournaments are not as high as bet on other sporting events, but it is always worth at least checking out some of the live and ante post betting markets on some of the major pool tournaments.
I say that for currently over at the MobileBet betting site, that are one of our most recently approved betting site, you are going to find on offer a fairly generous ante post betting market on this year’s China Championship Pool Tournament.
You still do however have a couple of days to place your bets and wagers on that event, but when you tap or click through to their betting site using our links, if you are not yet a customer of theirs and sign up there and then an extra special sign up welcome bonus will then be coming your way, the details of which can be found on their website by the way.
I would also like to point out that when betting with MobileBet on their ante post outright winner betting market you do have the choice of betting to win or you can back any pool player each-way too, and I doubt you are going to find better each-way terms than those that are available at their site!
John Higgins Favourite to Win
As for just where the supposed smart money is going on that early betting market, well it does appear that it is John Higgins who is attracting the earliest support, and you only have to look at the way he has been playing recently to realise why that is.
As for the best odds available on him winning the 2018 China Championship pool tournament, those odds are decent at 9/2, so if you do fancy his chances then just now is the right time to do so.
Other Pool Players in with a Chance
It is the nature of the game of Pool and the favourite that any playing mistakes can cost a player very dear that does make it a great spectator sport, and this year I am having a hard time of picking out just which player I think does have the very best chances of winning and coming out on top.
There is always the chance that Mark Selby could win and that is something that a lot of punters do feel could happen for his win odds are not that much higher than those of the favourite mentioned up above and those odds for reference are currently 6/1.
There is of course the very real chance that this year could be the turn of players such as Judd Trump at 7/1, Mark Williams at 8/1 and both Ding Junhui and Kyren Wilson should never be written off and as far as their win odds go, they are both on offer and trading at some decent odds of 11/1 too.
