The Masters Snooker Betting Tips – Thu 19th Jan (Quarter-Finals)

the dafabet masters snooker trophy

Well round one was eventful with The Ronald being very fortunate that Liang Wenbo missed a match winning black ball to win 6:4! I thought it was a messy match and I am happy that I have laid him to win the tournament outright. Although I have to be thankful as he did me a favour by getting the highest break in the final frame of the match, which helped get my nose in front on the opening day.

Then Ding Junhui was on for a 147 after fifteen reds and fifteen blacks and just over hit the cue ball to run out of position on the yellow: and that was just the first day!

Overall I am pleased how round one played out as I had 4/7 winning tips giving nearly 3 points profit. Three outsiders won their first round matches and I had two of them, Marco Fu & Barry Hawkins.

The quarter-final line up is looking something like this:-

Ronnie O’ Sullivan v Neil Robertson

Marco Fu v Mark Allen

Ali Carter v Ding Junhui

Barry Hawkins v Mark Selby

Ronnie O’ Sullivan v Neil Robertson (1pm)

Looks like Robbo is back from the snooker wilderness after his previous three round one exits. The last time he went out in round one three times in a row he won his next tournament; can history repeat itself?

I quite fancy Neil to win here but as I have laid The Ronald to win this tournament I will go a different way. This should be close match.

Both knocked in a century in the very last frame of their round one matches and I see no reason why they can’t each do the same on Thursday afternoon.

Marco Fu v Mark Allen (7pm)

I was impressed with Marco’s last two matches; he came from 4:1 down in the final of the Scottish Open to beat John Higgins 9:4 and came from 3:0 down to beat Judd Trump 6:5 in his last match.

Both are playing well as Mark beat John Higgins in his last match too and like the match above, I expect another close one here.

Marco got three centuries in his last match and Mark got one.
