The draw format has been revised for this edition with matches that will be played over best of five. This is important to note when looking for an outright bet, as it does increase the likelihood that we will have an upset. Additionally, we might have big games early on, as proven by Mark Selby v Shaun Murphy first-round match. When looking at the outright market, you will also notice two notable absentees as Neil Robertson and Ronnie O’Sullivan will not take part. This is why Judd Trump and Selby are such strong favourites in this market.
We believe, however, that the value is with Kyren Wilson. Although he has had issues getting over the line, he has always faced superior players when coming up short. In this case, he will have fewer problems from this perspective, and the fact that he has been relentlessly consistent against lesser opponents makes him an exciting proposition in the outright market. Moreover, Wilson has already won last year’s Championship League over this short format and looked to be in good form last week, where he was in contention until the end.
Even if our first choice does remain Wilson, Ryan Day also has to be considered as he did well at the Championship League and can deliver in this short format. Wins in Gibraltar, Latvia and Romania making him a potential dark horse, especially if you are looking for an each-way punt.
Another player to keep a close eye on is Alexander Ursenbacher, who is a tremendous prospect that can thrive in this short format. The same can be said for Pang Janxu, who remains well overpriced despite showing some great talent recently. Pang is around four times the price for Zhao Xintong but has a much better draw and can potentially cause few upsets along the way.
