World Snooker Championship Odds: Ronnie O'Sullivan installed as 11/4 favourite for 2025 Crucible crown

The dust has barely settled on Kyren Wilson's World Snooker Championship triumph but we've already priced Ronnie O'Sullivan up as the outright favourite to land a record-breaking eighth Crucible title in 2025.

'The Rocket' was the strong-favourite to go all the way in 2024, only for Stuart Bingham to put pay to his hopes with a sensational 13-10 victory over the seven-time winner in the quarter-finals.

However, with O'Sullivan making no secret of the fact that there is a real desire to add to his trophy haul over the next couple of years, it comes as no surprise to see him at the top of the betting (11/4) for next year's instalment.

Judd Trump is priced up as the 9/2 second-favourite to land a second world crown, with the 2019 Crucible winner likely to still be licking his wounds after succumbing to a shock 13-9 defeat at the hands of surprise finalist Jak Jones in the last eight of this year's event, on the back of a first round elimination 12 months earlier.

Questions continue to surround the future of Mark Selby after the 'Jester from Leicester' revealed that he was contemplating time away from the sport on the back of a hugely disappointing 2023/24 campaign.

The four-time Sheffield champion is 8/1 to rediscover his best form in time for the 2025 showpiece, having laboured to a hugely disappointing 10-6 defeat to fellow Leicester man Joe O'Connor in the first round last time out.

Kyren Wilson on the other hand will certainly have his backers having been quoted 11/1 to successfully defend his title next year, after securing his maiden Triple Crown title with an 18-14 success over Welsh qualifier Jones in May.

The Warrior had endured a challenging season, both on and off the table, with his remarkable run in Sheffield coming on the back of just one semi-final appearance, at the German Masters, in the 12 months leading into the South Yorkshire showpiece.

Mark Allen and Neil Robertson - absent from the 2024 World Snooker Championship after falling victim to Jamie Jones in the qualifiers - are also available at 11/1, whilst veterans Mark Williams and John Higgins - who boats 57 ranking titles between them - are priced at 16/1 and 20/1 respectively.

2025 runner-up Jones - who was bidding to become the first qualifier since Shaun Murphy in 2005 to win the event - is available at 33/1, the same price as 2023 semi-finalist Si Jiahui and 2015 World Champion, Bingham.
