Jak Jones, once a 200-1 outsider with Coral pre-qualifying, is now at 9-4 odds as he heads into the World Snooker Championship's final. If he beats Kyren Wilson, he will become the biggest-priced winner in the championship's history, surpassing Joe Johnson's 150-1 odds from 1986. His victory would signify one of the most significant sports upsets in the past few years.

Jak Jones will become the biggest-priced winner of the World Snooker Championship in history should he beat Kyren Wilson in the final over the next two days.

Jak Jones was a 200-1 outsider with Coral pre-qualifying, and he is now just 9-4 heading into the final.  

John Hill from Coral told Freetips.com this morning that Joe Johnson was the biggest-priced winner of the World Snooker Championship, as he prevailed at odds of 150-1 in 1986.  If Jak Jones wins he will eclipse that record on Monday evening.

Hill said: “This is not quite a Leicester City 5000-1 storyline, however, a Jones victory in the final would rank as one of the biggest sporting upsets of the last few years, as the qualifier has knocked out some big names to reach the Crucible final, constantly upsetting the odds"
