Snooker Betting Odds

Judd Trump -2.5 hcp – 8/13

I tipped up Judd Trump to win his second UK Championship this week so obviously I expect him to progress here against China’s Xiao Guodong.

The Englishman leads Guodong 6-2 in their meetings over the years and has won their last five matches, winning a combined 21 frames to nine.

Trump hit a 147 last week, when losing the Champion of Champions final to Ronnie O’Sullivan, so is clearly in good nick.

Jack Lisowski -2.5 hcp – 5/6

Another England vs China contest in the second afternoon game, this time between Gloucestershire’s Lisowksi and Guangdong Province’s Xu Si.

The left hander has won both of the previous meetings between the two and beat Si 6-2 in their last match up over an 11 frame distance.

31-year-old Lisowski is still waiting for his first tour win but has reached seven finals in his career, showing he has the pedigree to go deep in tournaments.

David Gilbert +1.5 hcp – 8/13

In the evening matches, it’s a battle of two English players, with Shaun Murphy a slight 8/11 favourite from David Gilbert (21/20).

While the 40-year-old ex-world champion leads the head-to-head record 4-3, the matches have generally been tight, with Murphy winning 26 frames to Gilbert’s 24.

41-year-old Gilbert looked in really good form, when beating Mark King 6-0 in the qualifiers and he should cover the handicap here.

Hossein Vafaei +2.5hcp – 4/5

Last, but not least, we have England’s Mark Selby vs Iran’s Hossein Vafaei. The Jester from Leicester has won four of the six meetings between the two but again they have been fairly close, with Selby winning 25 frames to Vafaei’s 21.

The 28-year-old beat Selby 6-2 in this very tournament last year and the 4/5 with 2.5 frames start, looks good value.
