There are some interesting promotions around too and over at BetFred, customers can claim free bets for the length of the tournament. Simply bet on your player in the outright winner market and every time he makes a century break, the bookmaker will add a £2.00 token to your account.

Significant Terms

Between now and 11am UK time on Saturday April 21, head to BetFred’s outright winner betting for the 2018 World Snooker Championships. Make your selection from the runners and riders and every time that player makes a century break in the tournament, the bookmaker will issue you with a free bet token worth £2.00.

BetFred’s usual free bet terms apply so you should expect to see that token arrive within 24 hours of settlement and you will then have 7 days in which to use this before it expires. You are free to check all terms and conditions but It’s a very simple promo and the only tricky part lies in picking a winner.

Ahead of The Pack

Ronnie O’Sullivan

Ronnie O’Sullivan is the man in form and he is favourite across the sportsbooks to win his first world title since 2013 and his sixth overall. The rocket is quoted by BetFred at 9/4 for the outright win while defending champion Mark Selby follows at 4/1.

There is some interest in Judd Trump at 15/2 while last year’s beaten finalist John Higgins is at 11/1. Ding Junhui is quoted by BetFred at 14/1 while Mark Williams is a recent ranking tournament winner and available at an excellent 20/1.

Moving further through the list, reigning Masters Champion Mark Allen is quoted at 33/1 while other longer range prices include Shaun Murphy at 25/1 and Ryan Day at 40/1. There are plenty of other contenders and the choice is yours but the following numbers might just help.

Last Year’s Stats

In the 2017 Snooker World Championships, 74 century breaks were struck and that total was slightly down on the record of 86 which was set in 2015 and again in 2016. Of that total, Ronnie O’Sullivan hit six tons while the finalists Mark Selby and John Higgins hit eight centuries apiece.

The standout player last year was, however, Ding Junhui who was some way ahead of the rest with an impressive 13 century breaks. Those numbers aren’t going to be guarantees of what will happen moving forward but they may offer some pointers as you look to make your choice.

In summary, it’s a simple promo from BetFred that could lead to quick and easy £2.00 free bet tokens while you’re enjoying the greatest snooker show of all over the next two weeks.
