Masters Snooker 2020 Betting Tips Final | Sunday 19th, January 2020

13:00 – Ali Carter vs Stuart Bingham Betting Tips: Bingham to end Carter’s dream in the final

The Masters is the classiest snooker event of the year with the top 16 ranked players that are invited to fill the last 16 places. It does always deliver a top winner. This is why nobody could foresee this final.

Nobody predicted this final

If you did so, you surely deserve a medal, so set back and enjoy. If you are following the formbook, than this edition of the master has been a very complicated matter. It has been fully entertaining, but the snooker level hasn’t reached the expectations. 

We have plenty of respect for Stuart Bingham and Ali Carter, but they are lesser members of the snooker top-16 elite. Before this event, they had a horrible record at the Masters, and Ali Carter is only here before Ronnie O’Sullivan decided not to take part. 

For this reason, many believe Carter will now go all the way. ‘The Captain’ has surely made the most of his luck, and has improved his otherwise disappointing season with impressive wins over three better players.

Bingham has dominated recent matches

For Carter, beating Bingham in the Masters Final will be less of an upset compared with his wins over Selby, Higgins and Murphy. Recently though, it has been Bingham who has dominated. He has won the last five matches against Carter, and he is leading 25-6 in aggregates frames. Long head to head is tied 8-8. That is probably more reflective of recent form, and we expect this is going to be a close final. Over 16.5 frames has very little value at 4/5. 

Carter has a bad record in finals

We do not expect to see a match of, particularly high standard. Ali’s has been pretty poor in finals. All his four ranking wins were against inferior opposition. Bingham has a better record, even if not impressive. He had one chance in a major final, and he delivered. 

After what we have seen this week, anything can happen today but our preference is for Bingham. He is a better player and more reliable. His performances were better than his results this season show and look like a title is due for him. 

In the semi-finals, we saw the importance of the head-to-head record. David Gilbert went in with a fantastic form, but hammered by Bingham in 11th straight sets. Considering Bingham has been dominated recently over this old rival, we do see this happening again. 5/6 that he wins by more than one frame looks an interesting proposition. 

Our Verdict: Stuart Bingham To Win -1.5 Frames

Masters Snooker 2020 Outright Betting Tips – 1 Player To Back For Every Quarter | Sunday 12th-19th, January 2020

Let’s pick one player to back for every quarter

The calendar year will start with the second snooker major of the season. This Masters edition will be different in a key aspect. For only the second time in 27 years, the seven-time champion and 13-time finalist Ronnie O’Sullivan will not be attending. Let’s not go around it. It is a major loss for the sponsors and also for an entertainment perspective, but it might open up some great betting opportunities. After all, even if was attending, backing Ronnie this time around would have been of little value as his price would have been skinny even if he had a disinterested form in this season. 

Difficult draw for the defending champion

With Ronnie away, the man to beat is defending champion Judd Trump. Even if he had a great 2019, it didn’t finish in the way he wanted as he was defeated by Nigel Bond at the UK Championship. He also lost to Dave Gilbert in Scotland and Ian Burns in a European Masters qualifier. 

It will not be easy for him to defend his title and, on top of that, he has had a difficult draw. If Shaun Murphy is in form, even his opening match could be difficult. 

Ding Junhui resurgence

Ding Junhui represent some great value at 12/1. This is the prove that form is temporary, but class is permanent. We would need to see if he will have the consistency of going all the way, but surely his price looks very intriguing. 

Our Verdict: Ding Junhui To Win Masters Snooker

Can Selby claim his fourth title?

Similarly to Junhui, Mark Selby’s resurgence also deserves respect. The three-time champion will have a rather comfortable opener against Ali Carter who has a terrible record in this tournament. 

Surely Selby is a tempting option, but John Higgins looks more intriguing in a master without Ronnie. They are likely to meet in the quarters, and even if Higgins record at recent Masters is awful, he could get into form after the opener against Barry Hawkins. Before Christmas, the Wizard of Wishaw showed some great performances and at 12/1 looks great value. 

Our Verdict: John Higgins To Win Masters Snooker

The second part of the draw is easier, but this third quarter looks like a minefield. Uk runner-up Stephen Maguire and Crucible semi-finalist David Gilbert are the outsiders while Neil Robertson is the man to beat. The Aussie, however, is notorious for underperforming in majors as he cannot handle well the pressure. Our suggestion is to back Mark Allen, who has become a more reliable player in majors. He was champion in 2018 and has reached six semi-finals in this season despite his disappointing performance at the UK. 

Our Verdict: Mark Allen To Win Masters Snooker

Kyren Wilson is the each-way outsider

In the weak section of the draw, we have Mark Williams who doesn’t seem capable of repeating the performance he had in 2017-18. Stuart Bingham cannot be backed with confidence, as he has a terrible Master record. Jack Lisowski is ahead in the head to head against Kyren Wilson, but the latter has done better on bigger events and on the one-table format. He has built great experience in finishing runner-up in 2018 and looks a perfect each-way option at 18/1

Our Verdict: Kyren Wilson To Win (Each-way) Masters Snooker

Masters Snooker 2020 Outright Betting Tips | Sunday 12th-19th, January 2020

Snooker is entering the new decade and surely things are a bit different at Alexandra Palace. The Masters will start on Sunday but it will be without the big name and favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan who has decided to opt-out for the second time since making his debut in 1995. Surely the tournament will lose quite a bit without The Rocket especially here in London and in the event that has become very closed to the most talented snooker player the game has never had. 

O’Sullivan has won this tournament seven times, and for 13 times he has been in the finals over the 24 years he has been taking part in this event. But, he will not be there this time, so we have to focus on the rest of the sport’s star names. From a betting perspective, The Rocket’s absence makes everything more uncertain with many players that will see this as an opportunity to take centre stage. 

It is hardly surprising that current world champion Judd Trump is the 23/10 favourite to win the trophy. The likes of triple crown winner Neil Robertson, three times Master champion Mark Selby and UK Champion Ding Junhui will all be confident they can go all the way and won’t be feeling nostalgic about Ronnie’s absence.

Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In Masters Snooker

Trump in search of more success

Judd Trump is coming to Ally Pally confident that he can defend the title he won after defeating O’Sullivan in a spectacular final last year. The 10-4 was the peak of the best year of Trump’s career. He followed that with further five titles including the World Championship. As a result, Trump has become a Triple Crown winner as he has won everyone of the sport’s biggest three titles at least one time. And he is not satisfied. If he can win The Masters this year, he will become the only fifth player to do so. Trump is now focusing on creating his lasting legacy and surely will fighting until the end. His short-price tough it is not very inspiring for us, and we suggest you look for bigger odds for an outright bet.

UK Champion Ding is a valuable option

There is little doubt that Chinese ace Ding Junhui is back to his best and ready to fight for top titles once again. His triumph at the UK Championship before Christmas was a clear proof of that. He will be very motivated to make the most of Ronnie O’Sullivan absence and win the second leg of this season’s Triple Crown. He is currently available at 12/1 and represents great value.

Ding has been battling for a couple of years to find his form. His win in York last month was the second UK title and will give him the confidence that he can win against any best players in the world if on best form. Ding is surely one of the best players in the world to watch as he can control the cue ball to a level similar to the missing The Rocket. He is in great form, and we are confident he will play the kind of snooker that will impress the London crowd.

Our Verdict: Ding Junhui To Win Masters Snooker

Warrior looking to get his first major title

Will be the new decade the right time for Kyren Wilson to finally win his first snooker major? He is available at 18/1 and surely is an interesting each-way value.

Many have predicted that the Warrior will be a future world champion. In addition to a great ability, Wilson has determination and hard work that is difficult to find in many other players. He will head to Ally Pally desperate to secure such a prestigious trophy after coming close in this event two years ago. He was left close to tears after being defeated by Mark Allen in the final. Considering that Ronnie is not around this time, his chances of winning are a bit more, and you can be sure he will be fighting with everything he has until the very last ball out there.

Our Verdict: Kyren Wilson To Win (Each-way) Masters Snooker
