World Snooker Championship 2022 odds: Who are the bookies’ favourites to win? Top ten betting options detailed

Mark Selby will be back to defend his 2021 title at the World Snooker Championship this week in Sheffield at The Crucible Theatre.

The World Snooker Championship is back this weekend with last year’s winner Mark Selby and Snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan both kick starting their campaign on Saturday 16 April 2022.

Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre will once again play host to the World Championship and the winner of the competition will be crowned on 2 May 2022.

Selby won his fourth world title last year and will be the top seed going into this year’s tournament while the six-time champion O’Sullivan enters the championship as the world number one.

The first round of the tournament will consist of the best of 19 frames, the second round and quarter-finals are the best of 25 while the semi-finals are the best of 33 and the final is the best of 35.

The winner is set to receive £500,000 in prize money while the runner-up will take home £200,000.

The full list of those competing has not yet been announced due to players still going through the qualification process but Selby and O’Sullivan will be joined by China’s Zhao Xintong as well as fellow Englishmen Shaun Murphy and Barry Hawkins and Scotsman Anthony McGill. Wales’ Mark Williams will also be in attendance and the Championship.

Let’s take a look at what the odds are saying about who could take home the grand prize of £500,000.
