2021 Cazoo World Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions (December 13-19)
The 2021 Snooker season continues with the 2021 Cazoo World Grand Prix, slated to take place on December 13-19, where some of the best snooker players will compete for the lion’s share of the £380,000 prize pool.

The World Grand Prix is a ranking snooker tournament featuring only the top 32 players on the one-year ranking list and marks one of the most significant snooker competitions of the year. This year will mark the 8th edition of the event, and the 7th year it will be held as a ranking event.
The inaugural World Grand Prix in 2015 was held as a non-ranking event, but it has since changed its format and became an integral part of the World Snooker Tour.
In 2019, the tournament was included in the Coral Cup series, also branded as the Coral World Grand Prix, and has since held the name of Matchroom World Grand Prix in 2020 and Cazoo World Grand Prix for 2021.
Judd Trump, who won the inaugural World Grand Prix, has since collected 2 more titles in 2019 and 2020 and is the winningest snooker player of the tournament. He is also the only player to win it more than once, while Neil Robertson is the only non-English player to hoist the trophy.
2021 Snooker World Grand Prix Odds – Bookies’ Favourites
The outcome of Sunday’s Scottish Open final match between Luca Brecel and John Higgins had quite significant ramifications on the World Grand Prix draw, forcing the best bookies to adjust the outright odds. Still, they have made it very clear which players should be considered the favourites with the offered Cazoo World Grand Prix 2021 odds on snooker markets.
Judd Trump (7/2)
The 3-time World Grand Prix champion is billed as the main favourite to go all the way and cement himself as the most successful player of the tournament. It’s hard not to mention Trump as a part of our 2021 Cazoo World Grand Prix betting tips, but it rarely pays off backing the favourite.
He might be the best player ever to attend the event, but there’s enough talent in the field for Trump to slip, and one mistake is all it takes to miss out on lifting the trophy.
Ronnie O’Sullivan (9/2)
Ronnie O’Sullivan might not be as successful as Trump, but he has made 2 World Grand Prix finals appearances and has one title from 2018 when he won against Ding Junhui (10-3). His other finals appearance happened in 2015 when O’Sullivan lost against Trump with 7-10.
As the current no.3 in the world, O’Sullivan has had quite an impressive season. But while he has been relatively consistent in making deep runs in most tournaments O’Sullivan has attended, he seems to always fall flat in the latter stages.
The Rocket has enough talent to deserve respect. Still, based on his recent showings, it’s hard to imagine O’Sullivan emerging as the winner, and he is not someone we would consider adding to our list of predictions.
Neil Robertson (6/1)
Priced at almost double the odds of Trump, Neil Robertson is also the only of 3 players in the field who the bookies have not priced at double digits. The current no.4 in the world has been out of action since late November, when he crashed out of the UK Championship in the 1/64 finals, marking his second uninspiring result following a QF exit from the Champion of Champions.
Regardless, Robertson has won here in 2020 and has been in exceptional form prior to his recent slump. Before losing his recent 2 outings, Robertson has lost only one match since October 2021 (11-1).
The 2019 Snooker world champion, Judd Trump, is the most successful player of the World Grand Prix. The 32-year-old won the title 3 times in his career in 2015, 2019, and the second event of the 2020 season.
Besides “Haircut 100“, 4 other players won the title, but no one managed to do it more than once.

2021 Cazoo World Grand Prix Predictions
The snooker World GP odds for 2021 show Judd Trump as the man to watch, which seems fair, but there is rarely any value in betting on the favourite. Admittedly, he has the stats to justify his tag as the top dog, but it’s hard to recommend him as our main prediction at the offered price.
Neil Robertson to Win (6/1)
Neil Robertson seems a bit overpriced at 6/1, and while he hasn’t achieved much in recent weeks, he is still one of the few players in the field who can match Trump and O’Sullivan. You could question Robertson’s form since he has not attended the Scottish Open, but he has shown enough this season to warrant a bet at the offered price.
Luca Brecel to Win (14/1)
Luca Brecel won the Scottish Open with a commanding 9-5 final score against John Higgins and seemed to be in the form of his life. Admittedly, he is ranked only number 15 in the world; however, he has suffered only 2 losses since the Northern Ireland Open in October and has been one of the most consistent players globally.
Anyone placing in-play bets should also consider betting on Brecel to win individual matches. The odds offered on him likely won’t be high, but he should be able to go on a flawless run given the quarter he has been placed in.
