World Snooker Championship

Recommended Posts

With the draw tomorrow the seed's will find out who they get in the first round. Some eye catching results in the qualifiers last round. Jamie Jones beating Wenbo 10-0 :eek being one. The players I feel the seeds will wanna avoid are I would say Ryan Day, Joe Perry, Stephen Maguire, Graeme Dott. The next set of players would then be Jamie Jones, Ricky Walden. The Players I think are cannon fodder are Liam Highfield, Jimmy Robertson, Xiao Guodong, Chris Wakelin and Jack Lisowski these players for me don't play well under the lights (on Tv) the rest have questions marks over players Like Milkins and Stevens could be dangerous Un Nooh is great to watch attacking snooker but the good players with a good safety game will tear him apart.

Discuss the championship is just around the corner and with the draw tomorrow I just cant wait

Mags vs Ronnie 1st round :eek. Higgins, Trump Williams, Bingham, Allen, Ding and Carter I say will be over the moon with the 1st round draw.

McGill, Murphy, Ronnie and Selby wont be best pleased.

as for seeds going out 1st rd McGill, Wilson, Brecel, Carter, would be the ones who could fall.

Also I think Mags as a good chance of taking Ronnie out due to the time of the second session. If he can get out the 1st session well then I fancy him in the morning session to get the job done over Ronnie. Ding is a player that struggles in morning sessions for me to but I feel by the 1st session he will have a good lead. 

All ifs buts and maybe's at the mo will post would I will be backing to win the title and an outside E/W later

I Must say Snooker does bring out the mug punter in me :D. Hopefully in the next 6-12 months I would of developed a system of compiling odds for it but forget that for now :lol.

1st Rd Accy (with Betfred)

Bingham, Higgins, Allen, Trump, Ding and Williams all to win odds 5.14

Singles

Maguire @ 3.75

Stevens @ 3.00

Jones @ 3.50

The accy I expect to win or go close the singles I just like the prices on offer

Good luck to all

Lu Haotian has a winning record against Marco Fu and added to that, Fu has barely picked up a cue this year due to problematic eye surgery. Lu is great value at 7/4.

K. Wilson won't have any problems dealing with Matthew Stevens. Wilson dumped Stevens out 2 years ago, and he is a much improved player since then also. At 2/5, there is some value there.

Bingham is another I fancy to win, and at 1/2, that'll do nicely to make up a treble.

 

I'm finding it more difficult each year to find banker accumulators, even in the World Snooker 1st round. Barry Hearn has a lot to answer for with the snooker punters as he has somewhat brought the field together with his million and one tournaments a season.

Hi @ElPrincipito007 & @mcsilks

Good Luck with the selections 

I can't back Lyu Haotian as it's his first time here Some settle well and some crumble not sure which one he will be but hope he wins for both of you.

I don't see the player others see in K Wilson. What I will say is Matthew has got his nut down and a couple of years ago I was backing against him for fun Stevens that is. I'll stick my neck out and say this will be one of the worst games this year :lol. But that's just my opinion.

I to see Bingham as a big price so hope we are both right on that selection.

I'm sure we will disagree on a lot this week and I'll be wrong a lot :( . But I will be watching from the first ball intill the last :)

Good Luck lads

Outright I like John Higgins

Having a good season and knows how to get the job done at the Crucible

Each Way @ 12-1 Betway

Have followed on that. Also on Hawkins at 27/1 with Lads as saw him tipped elsewhere. (Used price boost for that, 25/1 best generally available).

I know nothing about the sport but I ended up having a look at the spread prices in relation to fixed odds and it did flag the 12/1 as an interesting price.

@Striker & @harry_rag

John Higgins for me looks nailed on for the Semi- Finals so If I'm correct 12/1 wont last long when he's in the semi finals. Only Selby in the top half would beat Higgins for me so if you can get Selby beat before the semi final I can easily see John in the Final.

As for Barry Hawkins I'd me amazed if he didn't at least get through to the Q Final's. But Barry is one those players who can get beat from 9-0 up with the match the best of 19. I've seen him crumble and blow leads time and time again a match in the uk open when winning I think 5-0 to Nigel Bond and lost 6-5. So don't be surprised if you see him blow a big lead.

I'm like a kid on christmas eve can't wait for tomorrow :ok

Am I missing something here, e.g. a change in the number of matches or frames being played this year?

I was initially inclined to back >79 century breaks at 4/5 based on spreads in the high 80s but, on closer examination, it's the spreads that look questionable.

From what I can see, the number of centuries over the last 10 renewals has been:

74-86-86-58-55-71-74-60-83-62 (average 70.9)

On that basis, the number of centuries looks a rock solid sell at 86.5? Anyone point out a valid reason for such an apparently high spread this year?

Hi @harry_rag

The format has not changed Barry Hearn on the other hand would love nothing more then to change the format to best of 7's.

1st rd matches are best of 19

2nd round and QF's are best of 25

Semi Final best of 33

with the Final best of 35

so it's not changed from last year I can't comment on the spread as it's not a market I take interest in sorry

Cheers, I've risked a sell at 86. Bottom line, I lose money if it's a record breaking year, otherwise I show at least a small profit. Think of it as an under/over line that appears to have been set too high.

Another couple of interest bets that caught my eye:

O'Sullivan to make a 147 break at 10/1 with Betfred (standout price compared to elsewhere)

O'Sullivan and Trump to both make a 147 break at 125/1 with Skybet (probably a mug bet now I've taken a closer look at the stats but, for a quid staked, who cares)!

Sometimes Mark Selby can start slowly that's Mark Slowby How I like to name him :$. So I have a couple of bets to kick off the world championship

Joe Perry to win 1st frame @ 2.37

Joe Perry to win 1st Mini Session (win at least 3 out of the first 4 Frames) @ 4.00

All bets are with Betfred

With Selby looking like going out (long way to go still)

I can't see anyone stopping John Higgins getting to the Final

Back Higgins to win the World Championship @ 10.00 E/W (Betfred)

Second thing is Matthew Stevens is suffering with something he doesn't look 100% fit worth keeping an eye on currently leading 1-0

As I said before If Mags could do well in the 1st session I'd fancy him to finish the job in the second session But as I already have a bet on him to win here lets look at some other bets.

Mags to win 1st frame @ 2.38 Betfred  Lost

Mags to hit over a 50 break in frame 10 @ 3.20 Betfred Lost

Mark Allen will win this match no doubt in my mind BUT he plays his best snooker when behide. He's not the greastest when he's a heavy fav

so I will be looking for him to go behide before backing him.

Not the start i was looking for today :lol

Mark Allen is a much better player when behide I don't think he is a good front runner so I'll take a chance on a few

Liam Highfield +4.5 frames @ 1.95 LOST

Mark Allens wins but I don't think we will see his best snooker unless Liam closes the gap :ok

Liam could of won at least 1 more frame :(
