  1. The value has to be on Maguire to beat Selby. Maguire has won their last 2 meetings including a 6-3 triumph in last years Masters Round One. I'll take Maguire -1.5 @ 7/2 with Bet365.
  2. Hello, I have a query. Is it normal for a company to ban an account as that account has been regularly winning and is up to the tune of 3~4K over a 2-year period? My Paddy Power account has been stopped and they have told me that the country where I live is restricted despite it being in the unrestricted list? All of my friends in Japan can still use their accounts as per usual, but they tell me that my account is no longer allowed. Surely this is just wrong? Can they do this? Many thanks
  3. ....at 4/1 with PaddyPower. To quote Ronnie, "John was evil. He just showed what a class player he is. It was ridiculous snooker, bordering on obscene"
  4. I couldn't agree less. Higgins is one of the finest snooker players of all time, and one of the most decorated. He said after the match that this performance was his greatest ever. Having watched the match in it's entirety, I can see why he said that. Selby stood little or no chance. No player would have lived with Higgins on that form and for that reason, I have backed Higgins to beat Wilson and then Ronnie in the final at 4/
  5. It's certainly great odds though bear in mind that Derby do have one of the best youth set ups in the country and therefore, one of the best U18 and U23 sides.
  6. FYI, this treble is available at PP at 11/4.
  7. There are certain players I avoid betting on, as they play an 'unreliable' brand of snooker. Milkins falls into that bracket. I am making some big money so far this tournament, as the top players are on their games. The quality at this Scottish Open is incredible. 60 centuries so far, and 11 130+ breaks. Staggering for a best of 7 game tournament.
  8. What a great tournament this has been. 2 bets for the final based on the meetings between these players in the last few years which have produced some very high scoring snooker. (+4.5) century breaks @ 11/10 paddypower Neil Robertson to have highest break, most 50 or more breaks & win @ 7/1 paddypower For the 2nd bet, Robertson has been the more impressive scorer of the two in this tournament and is back to his best whereas Judd has been playing at the top of his B game. If he doesn't improve on that, Robertson will win and the bet should take care of itself.
  9. I hope Ronnie turns it on and dumps Selby out. Granted, I have backed Selby to win the outright, but I'd sooner Ronnie wins and I lose my bet.
  10. I am in no doubt that Ronnie O'Sullivan is the best player in the world on his day, but he lacks consistency. His recent record at the crucible isn't anything to write home about. This is the furthest he has got since losing in the final in 2014 against Selby. I would love to see him overcome Selby, but I believe Selby is a bad match up for Ronnie and should Selby bring anything close to his A game; I think he will play his rather predictable dogged style whereby he feeds off Ronnie's long game mistakes and wins with frames to spare.
  11. Selby on the outright at 100/30 with PP. I don't quite understand why O'Sullivan is such a big favourite against Selby. Selby's form is dramatically improving, while O'Sullivan's is mis-firing by his own admission. Selby has won both of their previous meetings in Sheffield and has something of a stranglehold over Ronnie. If Selby were to beat Ronnie, then I cannot see anything other than him powering his way to a fourth World title.
  12. Keep up the predictions Fader. Don't be deterred by some idiots who seem to take pleasure in nitpicking at your posts. In response to your last ridiculous post donkey; is it really the prerequisite for posting on a forum for you to expect criticism?
  13. Its actually 6 matches over this last month. He was excellent in qualifying. Gary Wilson has been on TV a massive amount over this tournament, so I can only assume that you have turned off when his games have been on. As this is a betting forum, I try and offer reasoned advice, and advising to back against a player that by your own admission you 'haven't seen' is just crazy. Class and pedigree serve players well, particularly in Sheffield, but Wilson is the form player and is proving that again. His very best game may well mean he will still come up slightly short, but nothing like an -8.5 handicap that you suggest.
  14. Gary Wilson has been the standout player. I actually stopped taking you seriously when you said that you hadn't watched any of his games. Judd Trump has been patchy this tournament whereas Wilson has been nothing short of superb. To base an opinion merely on a players name and rank without taking into account form is amateur to say the least. Trump has to be favourite, but I think the bookies have priced this one up about right.
