In snooker, a match is usually a ‘best of’ a particular amount of frames. A game – from a starting position with all the balls on the spots to the time when enough balls have been potted to determine a winner on points – is called a frame. The frame one winner bet therefore is a prediction of which of the players will win the opening frame.
The frame one winner bet is popular as the successful player is not necessarily the one who will go on to win the match. Even the very best players can lose an opening frame but value in the odds may be found with this type of bet.
How is Frame One Winner used in Sports Betting?
Although snooker experienced a heyday in the 1980s when it first took off as a television sport, there has been a revival in its popularity over the past few years with more international tournaments – and the increased ability to watch them – as well as innovations in the game itself.
Betting on snooker has become more popular as well and the frame one winner selection gives bettors a chance of winning with attractive odds even when one of the top players is involved. Every snooker player has their own style and if that style is starting off at a fast pace, then that could be someone to look out for when it comes to the frame one winner bet.
With some players able to dominate the play at a table it may even be that one player hardly gets a go in an opening frame so this bet can cause some surprises.
The famous 1985 World Snooker Championship final between Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor went down to the very last ball – and was watched by 18.5 million people in the UK even though it finished in the early hours of Monday morning.
