World Championship Outright: Ali Carter 0.5pts EW – 80/1 @ Paddy Power
This snooker betting tip comes from the World Snooker Championship and the outright market.
Just the one player I fancy in the outright market. The Captain. Ali Carter.
Only 2 players have a better win % this season than Ali Carter. That’s tournament favourite, Judd Trump, and John Higgins.
Ali Carter comes into this World Championship in excellent form with 8 wins in his last 9 matches and also 17 victories from his last 21.
He was unfortunate to pick an illness at the Welsh Open having already beaten Higgins & Trump with O’Sullivan his Quarter Final opponent.
I wanted to back a player with a good record at the Crucible and Carter certainly boasts that. Since 2007 he has a 23-13 winning record in the World Championship.
He’s a 2-time finalist in 2008 and 2012. He’s made the Quarter Finals on his last 2 appearances. His draw is tough. He faces Lisowski in Round 1 but has won 2 of their 3 previous meetings. Neil Robertson is a potential 2nd Round opponent and Judd Trump is in the same half.
Far from ideal but this is an 80/1 shot after all. Paddy Power are offering the best odds on this snooker betting tip from the World Championship. Don’t have an account? Check out their generous sign up offer below. It’s a no brainer.
