The Masters: day 1. Vladimir Sinitsin’s prediction
Our snooker pundit Vladimir Sinitsin is giving his view on the first day of The Masters tournament.
There will be two matches per day in the first week of the tournament. That’s why we can get a review of each game carefuly. And there are a lot of bets on William Hill on each game (28).
Shaun Murphy against Mark Allen will open the tournament. They played in the semifinal last year which ended with Murphy win 6:2. And Murphy has a big advantage in their head-to-head matches. We can expect him to win this game too. But it’s hard to defend the title anyway. We remember how the champions lose in their first game. But Murphy always plays solid and last year he amazed everybody. If he does everything right, the crushing defeat of Allen can happen. So I’ll bet on that. There is reasonable bet on Murphy’s win with handicap -1.5 frames at 1.91 and it’s pretty decent. If the handicap raises to 2.5 frames, the odds will be 2.62. But among that, we can go for a special bet with enhanced odds on Murphy to win by three or more frames with the odds 3.00. Very tempting.
It’s hard to make any predictions in the match of Stuart Bingham vs. Ding Junhui. We don’t know what to expect from Ding. And Bingham said, ‘that he is well prepared for this tournament and is now ready to show his best’. I believe in Stuart. He has good face-to-face statistics against Ding (9:4). The bookmakers give 1.91 on each player. This means that both have equal chances. But we can take Bingham win with a century at 4.00. Maybe the phrase “make a match century break” means THE BEST century break in the match, but it’s okay. I can see value in that. If Stuart Bingham wins, his century will be the best.
If you don’t want to risk, you are to bet on Murphy and Bingham wins. The odds are lower, but this bets are free from danger.
