Following his win in the 2014 World Championship at the Crucible, Boylesports can report that already Mark Selby has seen support to retain the title in 2015.
Selby, who is known as the Jester from Leicester, was initially installed at 8/1 to repeat his World Championship success in 2015 but following support has been clipped into 13/2 on Tuesday morning.
Ronnie O’Sullivan who missed out on landing a sixth World Championship title currently heads the betting at 9/4 to win back the crown, whilst Neil Robertson who was knocked out in the semi-finals is priced at 8/1 to win a second World Championship title.
Ding Junhui suffered a shock first round defeat in this year’s tournament and is priced at 9/1 for 2015 World Championship success, whilst Judd Trump, who was defeated in the 2011 World Championship Final, is 10/1 to bounce back to winning ways.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Already we have laid Mark Selby at 8/1 to retain his World Championship crown in 2015 and our traders have had to clip the Leicester native into 13/2 as a result.”
He added “As a result, we have eased Ronnie O’Sullivan out to 9/4 from 2/1 to win a 6th World Championship title in 2015.”
