Go Snooker Loopy With Betfred

| September 17, 2010 | Reply

What a sickener.

At half-time on Tuesday our bet on over 23.5 Champions League goals was going great guns with 15 already in the bag.

Two minutes into the second half it was looking even better as the Bremen Spurs game produced a fourth.

And then it all went quiet.

The goals dried up, defences suddenly learned how to defend and our bet fell agonizingly short at 22.

Fortunately for those of you that took up Sporting Bet’s free bet offer, nothing was lost.

That’s the beauty of free bets…

They give you the chance to win big without risking a penny.

So how about another?

This offer is from BETFRED and while the free bet is good (£50) they don’t stop there…

You can also get a £500 casino bonus…

A £400 poker bonus…

And a £30 bingo bonus.

Now that really is something for everyone!

Win big on the baize

I’m afraid I can’t give you any tips on how best to use your casino or bingo bonus…

And I can do without the extra competition on the poker tables…

But a £50 free bet, that I can help you with.

Now, this Saturday sees the World Open get underway…

For those of you that don’t know your snooker, it’s the first major tournament of the snooker season and was formerly known as the Grand Prix.

This year it’s had a bit of a rejig, with more competitors, shorter matches and a random draw.

Not only does this make it all the more exciting for viewers but it also means a set of very tasty odds from the bookmakers.

Quite frankly, they haven’t got a clue who’s going to win the event, which means that we can take full advantage.

First, back world champion and last year’s Grand Prix winner Neil Robertson at a staggering 16/1…

Then have a bit of each-way action on form men Matthew Stevens (28/1) and Martin Gould (40/1).

Big guns at bigger prices

There’s no two ways about it, some of the prices being offered up on this tournament are a little bit mental.

Even perennial favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan is being offered up at 7/1 with one bookmaker…

He’s not been that big a price to win a major event this century.

But Ronnie (as ever) is not where the real value lies.

You see, in snooker O’Sullivan is about as reliable as a bloke selling cheap DVD’s at your local pub…

You may think you’re onto a winner but even if the quality is ok, chances are you’ll be nicked for handling stolen goods.

Instead, take Betfred’s best price 16/1 on Neil Robertson.

The Aussie is the current World champion and has a good record in shorter frame matches, winning the Grand Prix in 2006 and 2009.

This year the matches are even briefer (best of five until the final) but that should suit the aggressive Aussie just fine.

By my reckoning Robertson should really be in the top two in the betting and Totesport have got it about right, pricing him at 9/1.

Should he get through a tricky first round against Graeme Dott, even those odds are likely to half.

So get on the 16/1 now – it may just be the best bet you make this year.

Now, because this event looks pretty unpredictable and because the prices are so good, it makes sense to side with a couple of each-way shots in addition to our main bet.

Of the players that fit the bill, the best look to be two time world finalist Matthew Stevens and the emerging Martin Gould.

Since his last final appearance in 2005, Stevens has had a tough time of it and endured a couple of seasons in the snooker wilderness.

However, the Welshman has been slowly finding his form again and is up to 19 in the world rankings.

He has also had a good few weeks, reaching the semi-finals of the previous tournament in Shanghai.

Due to the slightly bizarre structure of the new World Open, Stevens has already qualified for the second round, leaving him with one less game to play than a lot of the favourites.

28/1 each-way with BETFRED or 33/1 with Sporting Bet both look to be great prices here.

Finally, have a small stake on Martin Gould.

Gould went full-time as recently as last year, giving up a part-time job as a croupier in the process.

This career move has worked wonders and Martin came within a deciding frame of beating eventual champion Neil Robertson at the World Championship.

Like Stevens, he is another player already in the second round and another player in fine form – he beat Steven Hendry at Shanghai and took favourite Mark Selby to a decider.

At 40-1 each-way with BETFRED and 50/1 with Sporting Bet, Gould looks another player to side with.

So there you have it, a great free bet offer and a real chance to turn that free £50 into a very large amount of money…

Back Neil Robertson to win the World Open at 16/1 with BETFRED

Back Matthew Stevens each-way with BETFRED at 28/1 or Sporting Bet at 33/1…

And back Martin Gould each-way with BETFRED at 40/1 or Sporting Bet at 50/1.
