The Gibraltar Open Snooker will be the ranking event this week, and our snooker experts have reviewed the betting market to provide some value tips for the outright market.
It looks as we are in a golden era in snooker, with all the world’s top player that are in great form and delivering impressive performances. Last week we saw more evidence of this trend in the Players Championship, and we do expect the same happening at the Gibraltar Open Snooker.

Yesterday Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins faced each other for the first time in a ranking final since 2005. Higgins prevailed, delivering another near-perfect performance against an in-form Ronnie.
Judd Trump, who is the defending champion here, is now available at a price that is bigger than we have seen for more than a year. Is the world number one on his way down? We don’t think so. He had to lose eventually and clearly didn’t like the conditions at Celtic Manor. At the Players Championship he played well and lost a decider against a Stuart Bingham, who had a great match. So, no cause for concerns for Trump and, actually, it is worth backing him to bounce back in Gibraltar.
Trump will be keen to get back to winning ways, and considering that he is currently leading the BetVictor series, he will want to finish off well. So we are backing Trump to win the Gibraltar Open as our first choice.
If you are looking for more value in the outright market, with the idea to maybe cash out later on in the tournament, you might want to taking a look at Pang Junxu, who seems, at the moment of writing, underestimated in the betting market. This 21 year-old has been very consistent as in the last seven events, has reached two times the last-32s and two times the last-16s. Furthermore, he has won five matches from seven at the WST Pro-Series and defeated top players like Allen, Hawkins, Junhui and Maguire. He will probably have to face Ronnie O’Sullivan in the quarter-final, but that is not sure either as the Rocket will have to overcome difficult opponents like Ali Carter and maybe Brown.
