Selby has been the protagonist of the first three rounds, in which he destroyed oppositions very easily. Murphy, however, was the star of the semi-finals as he came back from a 10-4 defeat to a 17-12 win over Kyren Wilson. That was, without doubts, one of the best performances we have seen in the history of this tournament. There were some doubts about him based on his troubled season, but those are gone now. He has shown to be able to cope with severe pressure and stand in front of Selby with great confidence.

Looking at the head to head record, there isn’t much to choose between those two players. Selby is currently leading 14-12, with an advantage of 126 frames to 115. He is also leading in majors by 4-2, and he is surely a more consistent player. Another stat that makes us going towards Selby is his incredible record in finals. Before losing the one-frame Shootout final, he has won 16 of his last 17 rankings finals, including 11 on a bounce. The Jester from Leicester is excellent, and as we have seen in the semi-final, he eventually managed to defeat his opponent.

His odds, however, don’t make much appeal, and we have to agree with the bookmakers that this could be a one-way affair. Selby should be able to slow the game down and, in doing so destroying Murphy’s current fluency. We wouldn’t be surprised if Murphy will take an early lead, but everything points towards one of Selby’s famous comebacks with a win that eventually should be of a decent margin to justify betting on the handicap.

This year the event will take place in the regular spot once again, and there will be a return to the fans in the stands. What will that mean? There might be more pressure for the first-timers, and players like Ronnie might have preferred a quieter Crucible. Those are all things that we need to take into account especially compared with last year’s event. Another thing to consider is that we haven’t seen too many surprises in recent big tournaments if we exclude Jordan Brown’s win over O’Sullivan in the final of the Welsh Open.

History tells us that the winner will almost certainly come from the top 10 seeds: that has happened in 9 out of 10 situations. We believe this to be a pretty solid stat, and we have used it in our search. Another interesting thing to consider is that those who have poorly done the year before tend to come with great hunger and usually do bounce back.

Another key factor to consider is the current form. Nine of the last 10 Crucible winners made at least a semi-final in one of their previous three starts. In addition to this, it has been a very long and packed season in any sport and especially in snooker. 8 of the last 10 players won at the Crucible had played 96 or fewer matches in that season, so coming refreshed is another crucial factor in going all the way here.

Considering all those things, we have narrowed our pick down to one player: Neil Robertson. The numbers tell us that eight of the last 10 winners were under 40, which helped us decide between him and Higgins, who is 45. It will be once again a thrilling affair, but Robertson looks excellent value, especially if you are planning to cash out mid-tournament. After all, he fits our winner-identikit perfectly; he cannot go wrong!
