Higgins Can Win The Snooker World Title Again
Stoke and Southampton are desperate for points but their opponents today. Crystal Palace and Everton have nothing to play for except pride and prize money. The financial rewards from finishing one place above the next are relatively insignificant compared to the guaranteed income from TV rights. Motivation and hunger are pitted against superiority and there’s no real logic to which factor will come out on top. In the great history of sitting on the fence here’s some standout fence sitting. The DRAW DOUBLE on today’s televised matches pays over 9/1 with William Hill.
It’s the first Classic of the season today over the Rowley Mile at Newmarket and as usual Aidan O’Brien has got a strong hand. He has the first and second favourite for the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket but his biggest win of the today could be in the United States. After a devastating run on Dubai World Cup night Mendelssohn is the favourite for the Kentucky Derby. Significantly Ryan Moore has given up the opportunity to win a British Classic and takes the ride. That is a tip in itself so MENDELSSOHN should be backed at 3/1 with Ladbrokes.
The World Snooker Championship is at the semi-final stage and both matches bring together a former world champion and a player yet to win the biggest title in the sport. The match between Barry Hawkins and Mark Williams is to close to call but John Higgins should edge out Kyren Wilson. The most consistent player of the tournament so far has been HIGGINS so he should be backed at Evens with Betfair to be the world champion again.
