Snooker players hoping to get through to the final stages of this years International Championship, do of course first have to qualify, and today there are plenty of qualifier matches up and running starting at half past nine in the morning, all of which you can bet on of course.
However, as that snooker tournaments really does attract some of the very best players from around the world, one downside of betting on the qualifier matches, is that the favourites to win each match will not be on offer with huge odds attached to them!
However, by making the sensible decision to betting with Ladbrokes you will at the very least find some slightly better odds on offer on bot only the favourites to win each qualifying snooker match but on the underdogs to win too, and some of those underdogs may just go on to win by the way!
One of the very first matches that will be broadcast live on TV this morning is the Ken Doherty v Chris Totten match, and the smart money is being lumped on Ken Doherty to win that match and his odds of 2/7 do enlighten you on his winning chances, the odds on Chris Totten by the way are high at 13/5!
Mark Davis v Elliot Slessor
It is fair to say that Ladbrokes are not offering terribly low odds on the Mark Davis v Elliot Slessor match, and with that in mind if you do think that Mark Davis is going to win, and let’s face it he does have a terrific chance of winning that match, you can bag odds of 4/9 on him doing so.
