The defending champion is Ding Junhui, who defeated Stephen Maguire 10-6 in the final last year. This is a massive event, featuring all the big name players. Read on as we take a closer look at some of the favourites in our UK Snooker Championship betting tips and bring you the current odds for 2020 UK Snooker Championship.
1. The Favourites of UK Championship 2020
The betting odds for UK Championship 2020 winner with Bet365 has Judd Trump as the favourite to come out on top. Interestingly, the Englishman has only twice reached the final of the competition and will be aiming to win it for the second time. You must go back to 2014 to find the last time Trump reached the final of the UK Snooker Championship and 2011 for his only victory in the tournament.
Trump has won one tournament this year, picking up the trophy at the English Open. He recently reached the semi-final of the 2020 Champion of Champions, losing 6-1 to Mark Allen, who went on to win the competition. Trump has also reached the final of the European Masters and the final of the Championship League. Having won the world championship in 2019, Trump failed to defend his title in 2020, losing to Kyren Wilson in the quarter-final.
However, Trump finished the 2019/20 season with the highest number of ranking events won in a single season and the most century breaks made by any player in the 2019/20 campaign. Therefore, it is easy to see why Trump leads the way in many punters UK Snooker Championship 2020 predictions.
It is what it is, but at some point you want the fans to come back because without the fans it is hard. Listen, you feed off them sometimes and it is nice to come out and play in front of a crowd.
Continuing our look at the favourites and next in our betting predictions for UK Championship we come to Ronnie O'Sullivan. The current world champion claimed his sixth title at the Crucible this year, defeating first-time finalist Kyren Wilson 18-8. It was a comfortable victory for The Rocket and he has won the UK Snooker Championship a record seven times.
O'Sullivan has played only a handful of tournaments in 2020 and was eliminated from the Championship League in June by Stuart Bingham. It was the first tournament O'Sullivan had played since February but it did not prevent him from going on to lift the world title in August. It is easy to see why so many 2020 UK Snooker Championship tips and predictions will be backing O'Sullivan to win the 2020 UK Snooker Championship. If he turns up to the competition playing his best snooker, the odds with Bet365 will look big.

2. UK Snooker Championship - Other Contenders
Neil Robertson is the most successful player from outside the United Kingdom and recently reached the final of the Champion of Champions event. The Australian lost to Mark Allen but it was his second final of the year following the English Open. Robertson has twice won the UK Snooker Championship, with his most recent victory coming in 2015. He will be hoping to improve on recent performances in the tournament which has seen him fail to progress beyond the fourth round since his victory in 2015. However, progressing to the final of the Champion of Champions will give Robertson plenty of confidence going into this event and he is available at a tempting price with Bet365 to win the 2020 UK Snooker Championship.
One of the more interesting 2020 UK Championship snooker betting picks is Mark Allen. As highlighted above, The Northern Irishman defeated Robertson in the final of the Champion of Champions recently to claim his sixth professional snooker title. Allen was extremely disappointed to go out in the first round of the World Championship this year and will be hoping to make amends by going deep in this competition. Allen reached the semi-final of the UK Championship last season and finished runner up in 2018, so he knows what it takes to get to the latter stages of this tournament.
