Snooker was never amongst the most popular betting sports. Probably because it’s not a popular sport among the general public, at least not as much as soccer, basketball, hockey… Despite that, the popularity of betting on snooker continues to grow, with numerous snooker tournaments taking place all around the globe. For an “outsider”, that is someone who does not bet, it would seem there is not a lot of opportunities to bet on snooker. The fact that it’s a turn-based game it would seem so, but it’s far from the truth. We will touch that topic later and explain all the different bets you can choose when betting on snooker.
Despite the lack of popularity of snooker as a sport, there is another issue why some do not choose to bet on it. Betting on snooker has somewhat a negative sound to it, mostly due to numerous match-fixing scandals that happened. The match-fixing seems like a reason enough to avoid betting on snooker altogether. However, the necessary steps have been taken to avoid such scandals in the future. To be fair, most if not all others sports have been involved in match-fixing scandals. For example, soccer has seen its fair share of match-fixing, but that doesn’t stop people from betting on it, so why would it stop you from betting on snooker? You can find good value bets, if done right and with patience, same as with all other sports.
In recent years Snooker has become popular around the world, so it’s not a “British sport” anymore, but rather an international sport with events taking place all over the globe. For that reason, we have a lot more snooker events throughout the year.
As with other sports, if you wish to be successful with snooker betting, you should have knowledge of the game as well as tournament formats. In addition, knowing the player’s form, H2H results, players statistics, and injuries are all crucial information for a punter when backing up their selection. Becoming familiar with the types of bets that you can choose from has its weight as well. Knowing the types of bets and how to use them, in conjunction with each other will help you with your profits or reducing your losses. There is of course also the deciding on the right bookmaker for your bets.
We highly suggest using Pinnacle(Money Line) and Dafabet(Handicap). This is extremely important, because at the end of the day bookmakers will pay (or won’t pay) your winnings, so picking an unreliable one or those who offer lower odds will result in lower profits.
