Snooker: Bet Type FAQ

As a sport without much of a betting tradition, available snooker markets are often quite limited, even from the very best online bookmakers. When one of the sport’s biggest tournaments rolls around, however, matches do often benefit from a handful of different available types of bet. To get you prepared and ready for when that does happen, we’re going to quickly define and explain a few of the most popular types of snooker bet below.

Match Result – The bread and butter of snooker betting, match result markets are generally available for all tournaments and events which are priced up by a bookmaker. As their name reveals, they are markets through which punters can simply bet on which player they believe will win a given match.

Frame Betting – Similar to correct score betting markets in football, frame betting markets allow snooker punters to bet on the exact final score of a given match. In longer format matches such as those in the World Championships, therefore, there can be a large range of scoreline alternatives available.

Player to Pot First Red – A prop bet offered for each frame of a given match, when available, this market simply offers each player as an alternative and pays out if a punter’s chosen player pots the first legal red in a given frame.

Century Breaks – For matches where a decent range of betting markets are available, there can be a few different century breaks markets amongst them. Generally, a market asking whether a century will be scored can be provided, as can a similar market for just one specific player and a market asking you to predict the number of centuries scored through the duration of a match.

Total Points – A type of market that can be offered for each frame of a match or for the match as a whole, a total points bet asks punters to predict how many points will be scored in combination by both players. Generally speaking, these are presented as over/under markets with the points total for the over/under being different for each individual match.
