No, don’t adjust your set, it’s some red-hot snooker advice on the Betting Directory tipping site, and the word from within the Wembley Arena is that Mark Selby (4/7 general) should be backed to come through his afternoon test against Mark Allen and seal a place in the semi-finals. Allen has played well to get this far, but the writing should be on the wall now he clashes with the top seed.
This evening’s match sees Ding Junhui go head-to-head with John Higgins, with ‘The Star From The East’ the percentage call to edge out odds-on Higgins at evens with Boylesports and Skybet after he saw off Shaun Murphy 6-4 in a tough opener.
The best bet tomorrow looks to be Stephen Maguire at 4/6 with Extrabet and Skybet – he is well fancied to see off Neil Robertson.
The treble comes out best at bigger than 4/1 with Skybet.
The one game we’re leaving well alone is ‘The Rocket’ Ronnie O’Sullivan’s clash with the more than useful Ali Carter. Not only are the doubts about O’Sullivan’s fragile temperament refusing to recede, but he’s also playing with a new cue, and could struggle to find a winning rhythm.
He isn’t necessarily a lay, since he could probably win blindfolded if he chooses to turn on the style, but there are enough question marks to make this one a no bet or even a small play on Carter. Good luck.
