World Snooker Championships


Snooker is a fast moving game and 2013 World Snooker Championships are proving to be no exception. The tournament's in full swing now and there’s already been plenty of opportunities to win big with the snooker betting offers that online bookies have been giving away.

We’ve had ten days of exciting snooker action at the Crucible Theatre so far and now only eight players remain. Most punters want to know how to use free bets in the World Snooker Championship final next Monday. So far the tournament hasn’t been short of surprises.

The early elimination of world ranked Mark Selby, 2010 champion Neil Robertson and the four time winner John Higgins has made it an even more interesting. But there are still plenty of ways for you to make the most of the free bets that are out there.

Word Snooker Championship Favourites

At this stage of the 2013 World Snooker Championships, Ronnie O'Sullivan is still the bookies favourite. He’s played great snooker so far and has easily overcome the nervousness he showed in his opening match against Glasgow's Marcus Campbell. O’Sullivan has come a long way, and if you decide to use a free bet on Ronnie then you're in with a pretty good chance.

He’s next up against Basildon's Stuart Bingham, the reigning Premier League champion. O'Sullivan seems to have the edge against Bingham with four wins to one from their previous five meetings. Betfair offers betting odds of 2/1 for O’Sullivan to win the tournament.

Bingham's snooker has come on in leaps and bounds since winning the Australian Open almost two years ago. Maybe you think he has what it takes to reach his maiden Crucible semi final?

It’s certainly worth comparing bookies free bet offers and have a punt or two as bookies offer odds of up to 20/1 for Bingham to win the 2013 World Snooker Championships.

Perhaps Judd Trump can win his quarter final tussle with Shaun Murphy. It’s certainly worth a punt. Trump is currently in there with Bet365 offering odds of 10/3 at the time of writing.

Shaun Murphy is always in with a chance, so how about using some free bet offers on him to win? Currently Betfred offers punters odds of 10/1 for Murphy to win the tournament.

And what about China's Ding Junhui? This is Ding's seventh consecutive appearance, but he has only reached the semi finals once before, in 2011. With both Trump and O'Sullivan in the opposite half of the draw you might want to use snooker betting offers on Ding as currently Ladbrokes offer odds of 7/2 for him to win the 2013 World Snooker Championships.

Of course it won’t be easy for Ding. His opponent Barry Hawkins is no pushover and he’ll be out to prove his worth as he’ll be competing in the last eight for the first time since turning professional. If you fancy a flutter on Hawkins, SkyBet offers odds of 18/1.

‘Marathon Man’ Ricky Walden might take your fancy, and with some bookies offering odds of 18/1 why not give him a go? Walden's challenger in the quarters is Michael White. Not only in this his first Crucible quarter final, but his first ever quarter final in a full ranking event.

He’s definitely a free bets long-shot as bookies offer odds of up to 20/1 for him to win the tournament, but could be a massive earner if he does manage to go all the way.

We’ll soon know the outcome but there’s still plenty of time to make use of those snooker betting offers. Why not try to name the finalists, predict the highest break, or of course decide who is going to win the World Championship Snooker Tournament for 2013.
