Snooker fans waste very little time reminding anyone who’ll listen that their premier league was around well before the other premiership arrived on the scene.
The tournament was first introduced in 1987 and premier league snooker betting has expanded steadily ever since. The round-robin format, fixtures and UK-wide coverage means it’s an extremely popular even, one which is packed with highlights, shock results and the type of steadily-fluctuating odds which can convince punters to take the plunge and back their man.
It follows that betting on premier league snooker has become an integral part of the action for many of the game’s ardent followers.
Live premier league snooker betting in particular has, over the past few years, come into its own. With most matches broadcast live on TV, the propensity for punters to wager on the size of real-time breaks has expanded at a phenomenal rate.
“Online premier league snooker betting has transformed the game,” reckons one high-profile online bookmaker. “The competition’s format also helps maintain interest in premier league snooker betting all the way to the final.
In contrast to other snooker events, a draw is a possible premiership result, which adds even greater variety to the number of premier league snooker betting markets. The premier league snooker bet must not only take previous results and form into account, but the very real possibility of a stalemate. For many punters, this is one of the league’s highlights and for many players it offers a lifeline as the competition proceeds.
At the end of the competition’s round robin fixtures, the top four players go into two semi finals, a stage which appeals to lovers of the dramatic and to punters who delay their premier snooker league betting to this point. With the final looming, the semis can yield some of the competition’s most compelling action and predictions of foregone conclusions rarely prove accurate.
Online bookmakers, mindful of the tournament’s increased popularity, often pepper the semis with offers of free bets – usually available to those who have internet accounts with them. But from this stage, a bet on premier league snooker is effectively backing one man to keep his nerve better than the rest. All four semi finalists are good players, so is snooker premier league betting simply a case of focusing exclusively on the players who have performed well previously?
On punter maintains that “Successful premier league snooker bets require a lot of pre-tournament research. Who is playing well? Who do the odds favour? How has the guy been performing? Premier league snooker bets should be made only after this data has been processed and, if the canny predictor can snaffle a free bet with which to support or hedge his wager, then only a fool would fail to take advantage.”
Wise words, so does this mean that the premier league snooker bet should only be staked after the bettor has undertaken hours of research?
“You get out of Premier snooker league betting what you put into it,” comments one snooker writer. If you’re content to have a bit of fun while you’re watching a match, then go with what you fancy on the spot. If you’re more focused on making a profit from your wagering, then football, rugby or snooker premier league betting is best undertaken once you’re reasonably confident of the outcome.”
