Four-fold @ 10.94/1
Ding Junhui +1.5 hcp – 6/5
Both Ding and Ronnie have been majestic this week so far and this looks like the match of the round.
Whilst O’Sullivan has dominated this match up over the years, winning 20 of their 28 matches, The Chinese superstar usually keeps it close.
The Englishman has won the last five contests but they’ve been settled by a combined 6 frames. Take Ding on the Handicap
Tom Ford to win – 21/20
I’m not sure anyone would have predicted a quarter final battle between the two English veterans Joe Perry and Tom Ford.
Ford beat John Higgins and Luca Brecel to get here, whilst Perry beat favourite Neil Robertson and Stuart Bingham, displaying both are clearly in great form.
Perry has the slight bragging rights in the head-to-head, winning seven from 13 but I just feel like Ford will have his number this evening.
Jack Lisowski to win – 8/11
Lisowski has probably been the player of the week thus far, winning 6-1 and 6-2 in his two matches to date.
Here he faces his biggest challenge to date in the form of fellow Englishman Shaun Murphy. The former World Champion beat Judd Trump, in an amazing come from behind last frame victory yesterday to reach the quarters.
Murphy had previously been complaining about some neck problems and with Lisowski in such good nick, I’m taking him to win this one
Mark Allen -1.5 hcp – 8/15
Mark Allen is in terrific form, defending his home tournament, the Northern Ireland Open recently. He’s beaten Jordan Brown and Kyren Wilson in the two games so far.
The 36-year old faces England’s Sam Craigie here, who has only won two frames in their three previous match-ups.
Allen should cover the handicap again here.
