Frame Betting Tips
You will notice that different tournaments have different amounts of frames in every match. Even though, for most games, frame betting will be available with the majority of the bookmakers. Punters are therefore able to predict the frame score of each game. Our snooker tipsters will be providing suggestions and tips also in this exciting betting market.
Match Betting Tips
Most snooker televised matches and even some non televised ones will have odds available for each player to win their respective games each round. If you like more than one player, you can also consider placing a snooker accumulator bet or any other type of multiple bets.
Handicap Betting Tips
Handicap betting has been growing in popularity in recent times with snooker betting. As in other sports, handicap betting will allow punters to get decent odds even on those matches that might not be perceived as close ones. The way it works is that a player will start with some frames in advantage (called handicap allowance). This will generally be in the region of +1.5 or +2.5 frames etc.
Let’s do an example
To make things easier, let’s do an example. Let’s say John Higgings is the top favourite to beat Matthew Stevens. To make things more balanced, a bookmaker might give Matthew Stevens a handicap start of let’s say +1.5 frames. If Matthew Stevens wins the match of if John Higgins wins by only one frame, then the bet on Matthew Stevens +1.5 would be a winning one. If you believe the snooker match will be close, then backing the underdog on the handicap can be the right decision.
Highest Break Tips
Our experts are also providing tips and predictions on those snooker players that are likely to make the highest break in a tournament. Not only that, we do even predict how big that break is going to be. This is getting more and more popular with snooker punters as it does enhance the viewing pleasure. There are great opportunities to be also found in those betting markets.
In Running Snooker Markets
You can also bet in-play on snooker. Most matches are televised, and others can be watched in live streaming directly on most bookmakers sites. Betting live on snooker can be an entertaining and rewarding experience. Always remember that odds are going to move at every shot. To be successful, you would need to read the situation just a bit before it happens to gain an edge on the odds compilers. There are several in running markets available, especially in major snooker tournaments like next frame, highest brake in next frame and so on.
Live Snooker Match Betting
If you want to bet on the winner of a snooker match, you don’t have to limit yourself on when the game starts. Odds for a player to win a match will be presented live with one player that is going to shorten and the other that is going to increase as the game progresses. A good strategy is to look out for slow starters and back them before during the match instead than before. In this way, you will be able to secure better odds, especially if you are placing the bet when they are a few frames behind.
Live Frame Betting
Another exciting way to bet is to back the winner of each frame while in-play. If a player is known to be a quick or a slow starter, you can take advantage of many in running wagering opportunities. It happens rather frequently that the underdogs are winning the first frame, and this would be a value bet. Another interesting opportunity is when players are building a substantial lead. Some of them tend to become complacent so that they might give away some frames.
Outright Winners Predictions
It might seem that in snooker there are only a few dominant players, but in reality, surprises do also happen on outright winners markets. One thing to look out is that there is always a slight advantage to any home town players that have the crowd supporting them.
Why is it important to take note of snooker match lengths?
The number of frames will change depending on the tournaments. Smaller events will have only a maximum of nine frames, and this facilitates upsets, especially when favourite players are slow starters. In the World Championships and similar major snooker events, there are a maximum of nineteen frames which makes an upset rather unlikely.
Other Snooker Formats
The snooker Premier League has a different set up compared with regular tournaments. It is initially as a league table where draws are possible. Two points are assigned for a win while 1 point is given for a tie. Quicker players have an advantage as there is a shot clock of 25 seconds.
