It isn’t going to be until next January that the World Open Singles Bowls Tournament will be in play, however ever eager to get punters betting on that event sites like William Hill have already made live their futures betting markets on that event.
They are offering all punters the chance of securing some decent outright winner odds however they do also let punters place each way bets on that event too and as for the terms they are offering they are paying out to two places and giving one half of the win odds to the placed bet.
As for whether there is any current red-hot favourite to win the World Open Single Bowls tournament in 2020, well the one entrant that is listed as the current favourite, but by no stretch of the imagination is he what you could call a red hot favourite is Nick Brent whose odds of winning this event are Nick Brett.
Next in the betting are the second favourite who if you do get your skates on you are going to be able to back them at odds of 7/1 and they are Paul Foster and Stewart Anderson and both of them it does have to be said based on their current form could win that event next year.
Next Bowlers in the Betting
At 8/1 there are bound to be a few punters of there that will be of the mind that Greg Harlow is a rock solid each-way bet and if you do so try and back him as soon as you can for any continued support will see his odds dropping,
The 9/1 odds on offer on Alex Marshall may attract a few punters to back him and who isn’t going to be tempted to back the likes of Mark Dawes and Robert Paxton each-way at their current odds of 12/1
Outsiders to Win
There are some 14/1 shots that if everything does fall their way may just come out on top and they are David Gourlay and Jamie Chestney and then next in the betting are of course the 16/1 and they include currently Darren Burnett, Mervyn King and Michael Stepney.
As for whether it is likely that a bowler on offer at this stage on the early betting is going to end up winning this event at odds of 20/1 or greater, well that does remain to be seen, but some 20/1 shots include Simon Skelton, Les Gillett, Scott Edwards and Wayne Willgress.
You can also back the likes of Jason Greenslade and Mark Royal if you do think they have any chance of winning and by doing so right now using the futures betting market at William Hill the odd you can secure are decent enough given those bowlers chances at 25/1.
The only other bowler that is taking part in this event is of course Andy Thomson, but where he is going to win it or not, well I will let his current betting odds help you decide, and those odds are 33/1!
