Bet of the Day #47 – Fernandez to score a 50+ Break in Frame 1 v O’Sullivan 2pts – 14/1 @ bet365
BOTD is £100 in profit this month. £50 of this profit came from this market. Occasionally you stumble on a market that the bookies have wrong. John Isner and Tie Breaks spring to mind. When you do, it’s important to make the most of it.
I think DSSnooker has stumbled on a gem here. O’Sullivan is clearly playing care free snooker at the start of his matches. The fact this is a race to 6 frames, rather than 4 gives him more chance to recover from a poor start.
O’Sullivan has lost the opening in 11 of his 13 matches this season. In 8 of those matches his opponent made a break of 50 or more.
Fernandez isn’t a great player but he’s made 5 50+ breaks in 25 frames, 2 against Maguire and 1 in the opening frame against Dott.
Snooker betting tipster DSSnooker describes these odds as ridiculous.
