Stewart Cink

Hasn’t won since 2009 and is the joint leader going into the final round and that’s enough for me to take him on here!

Snooker – Outright Winner Betting Tip

Kyren Wilson

I tipped Kyren on a back to lay basis at the start of the tournament at 42.00 and he has a tricky second round match with the 2015 World Champion Stuart Bingham.

So as Kyren’s price has dropped I will lay him now to give a free six point profit should he win.

Snooker – World Championship Draw & Outright Winner Betting Tips

It really doesn’t seem that long ago when Mark Selby was parading around the Crucible with a Leicester City flag when he won last year’s World Championship. Here we are once again, with seventeen days of world class snooker where the best players on planet earth will do battle to be crowned the 2017 World Champion.

It all kicks off on Saturday morning and concluded on Monday 1st May.  There are three sessions every day (morning, afternoon and evening) until the final when there are just the two (2pm & 7pm). Please note that the afternoon sessions times vary from 1pm – 2.30pm, so make sure to double check the times if you are planning an afternoon in front of the box!

I will be tipping on a daily basis, but first I will be picking a player from each quarter for the outright win market and the prices below are all with Betfair Exchange.

The Draw

Mark Selby (1) v Fergal O’Brien
Ryan Day (16) v Xiao Guodong
Neil Robertson (9) v Noppon Saengkham
Marco Fu (8) v Luca Brecel
Shaun Murphy (5) v Yan Bingtao
Ronnie O’Sullivan (12) v Gary Wilson
Liang Wenbo (13) v Stuart Carrington
Ding Junhui (4) v Zhou Yuelong
Stuart Bingham (3) v Peter Ebdon
Kyren Wilson (14) v David Grace
Mark Allen (11) v Jimmy Robertson
John Higgins (6) v Martin Gould
Barry Hawkins (7) v Tom Ford
Ali Carter (10) v Graeme Dott
Anthony McGill (15) v Stephen Maguire
Judd Trump (2) v Rory McLeod

Mark Selby – Quarter One

Mark has been the world number one for the last two years and has won the World Championship twice in the last three years. So he should be the favourite in my eyes and has to be the value in the top part of the betting market.

BACK TO LAY – Selby (2 points) at 5.80 (5/1)


Ronnie O’ Sullivan – Quarter Two

The Ronald has won this tournament five times, but not in the last three years! He has only won one tournament this season and that was in front of his “home crowd” in The Masters.

Personally I think The Ronald’s heart isn’t in snooker anymore and hasn’t been for some time. He is still very talented but his best days are behind him so he is a lay for me here.

LAY – O’ Sullivan (1 point) 6.40 (11/2)


Kyren Wilson – Quarter Three

Kyren is a future World Champion in my opinion and I will be having a little dabble on him every year until he wins.

BACK TO LAY – Back Wilson (1 point) at 42.00 (41/1)


Judd Trump – Quarter Four

Judd is box office when he is playing well and he is very capable of beating any player. But his attacking style of play gives his opposition plenty of chances and over this long format I feel that he will get found out.

He is the tournament favourite due to his recent form, but unless he changes his tactics for this tournament he won’t be lifting the trophy on Bank Holiday Monday.

LAY – Trump (2 points) at 5.10 (4/1)


NB – You can only lay or back to lay on a betting exchange such as Betfair and not with a traditional bookmaker.

Welsh Open Snooker Betting Tips – Outright Win Tips

The Ronald is the defending champion and is the current tournament favourite at 9/2.

I won’t be backing anyone to win outright at the moment as the first four rounds are the best of seven frames and it’s a potential banana skin format for all the players. But I hope to get stuck in from the quarter finals onwards when the format gets longer.

Betfair don’t seem to have any markets up for the Welsh Open yet and I do hope that they are covering this tournament as I wanna take on The Ronald again, just like I did successfully in the World Grand Prix.

The draw can be seen here and my round one tips for Monday’s morning session are here. I will be posting tips on a session by session basis for the first two or three days or so as there are so many matches to go through.

Ronnie O’ Sullivan

Despite O’ Sullivan winning this tournament four times already I will be taking him on. In fact as long as he is the favourite for any tournament I will be laying him as he isn’t the best player around and the standard of snooker is getting better all the time. For example this season we have three players who have won a ranking tournament for the first time and it’s possible that it could be four if Ryan Day wins the World Grand Prix final tonight.

It’s the first to four frames on the first four rounds so anyone is vulnerable even The Ronald.

Neil Robertson is in the same quarter and he beat O’ Sullivan 4:1 earlier this week in round two of the World Grand Prix.

He potentially has a semi-final match with either Judd Trump or John Higgins. Judd beat O’ Sullivan the last two times that they met in long matches; 9:8 in the European Masters final in 2016 and 10:7 in 2015 in the World Grand Prix final in 2015. John has beat The Ronald both times that they met this season; 5:2 & 10:7.

Also he could met Mark King and Mark Selby from the bottom half of the draw in the final. Mark king beat him last week 5:4 after being 4:1 down and Mark Selby beat Ronnie 10:7 in the final of the UK Championships in December.

Scottish Open – Outright Win

Ronnie O' Sullivan
Ronnie O’ Sullivan

My original win tips have all fallen by the wayside but I am looking to lay a player which means backing a player not to win.

Ronnie O’ Sullivan

The Ronald has at least two tough games in front of him, firstly John Higgins and then possibly Judd Trump in the semi-final.

Now O’ Sullivan was the favoutite from the start and still is, but with his recent outbursts during the UK Championship, it’s never a good sign for Ronnie backers as it tends to be a sign that all is not well.

He won back to back tournament at the start of the year, The Masters and the Welsh Open, but hasn’t won anything since. In fact he has lost his last three finals this year which were against Higgins, Trump and Selby.

O’ Sullivan tends to play well fresh and he has been playing a lot of snooker over the past two or three months or so and I think he needs a break!

US PGA Championship – Lay

Jimmy Walker

Jimmy is one shot ahead going into round three with two class acts chomping on his heels. One shot back is Jason Day and two shots back is Henrik Stenson. It’s hard to pick between Jason and Henrik  seems laying Jimmy is a no brainer.

WGC Bridgestone Invitational

Dustin Johnson

Firestone Country Club is hosting the WGC Bridgestone Invitational once again which is a course that will suit long straight hitters. I am surprised that Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy have opted for the French Open as they are past winners here.

Jordan Spieth

He played some excellent golf in the Dean & Deluca Invitaional three tournaments back, especially the final round to win by knocking in twenty footers for fun, chipped in twice and only had nine putts in the back nine. But Jordan has flopped in his last two outings finishing T37 & T57.

I can’t really back him for an outright win at 12/1 or back him for a top five finish at 5/2 as he is lacking consistency. But I will go for a less riskier option of trading him instead as he is very capable of turning it on at any moment, hopefully it’s this weekend!

Back Spieth at 13.50

Lay Spieth at 10.00

2 points


Jason Day

Jason has won three tournaments this year which is quite impressive considering he hasn’t played that many times. But in his last three tournament he has managed one round in each of 76, 74 &  73 which is putting me off him this week. Also at 11/2 there isn’t much room to trade him either, so I will give him a miss this week.

Day – No bet


Dustin Johnson

Finally I got caught out laying Dusty last week in the US Open at 5/2 in running which was inevitable at some point but I won’t let that put me off taking him on again this weekend. Shane Lowry was four shot clear going into the final round and gifted the US Open to Dustin.

This course will suit him as he is hitting it long and accurate off of the tee but his putting is his weakest link. His tee to green play is the reason why he has had five top five finishes in his last seven tournaments and his putting is why he has only won one of them.

You can get 15/8 for a top five finish for him which looks very tempting but I will stick to laying him in running at a lesser price instead.

Lay Johnson in running at 4.00 (3/1)
