- Ronnie O’Sullivan is the front runner for Coral English Open victory
- The Rocket whitewashed Jimmy Robertson 4-0 in his tournament opener
- Teenage opponent Zhao Xintong has never made it past third round in ranking event
- O’Sullivan also thrashed Neil Robertson 6-0 in recent European Masters

Ronnie O’Sullivan whitewash odds of 23/10
The exciting Coral English Open continues into day 3 at EventCity in Manchester, and tournament favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan will make his second round outing tonight against inexperienced opponent Zhao Xintong.
Five-time world champion O’Sullivan made short work of Jimmy Robertson in his maiden baize battle at this brand new event on the snooker calendar. After earning a comfortable 4-0 victory, the Rocket is a promising 23/10 to secure a second successive whitewash triumph over 19-year-old Chinese cueist Xintong next.
With a seemingly straightforward path to the final in this new event, the Rocket will be confident of blasting past his young opponent here and booking his spot in the next round.
So, ahead of his latest appearance on the Manchester table, read on to see exactly why you should back these promising Ronnie O’Sullivan whitewash odds…
The Rocket can take off in Manchester
China’s talented teenager Xintong is in the way of O’Sullivan in tonight’s second round clash, but the Rocket has started the tournament brightly and should see himself through comfortably.
The 28-time ranking event winner began his campaign strongly in the inaugural English Open, which is part of the new Home Nations Series, by storming to a rampant 4-0 whitewash of Robertson.
Now 40-year-old O’Sullivan also came into the event on the back of a stunning 6-0 demolition of Australian and 2010 Crucible champion Neil Robertson at the recent European Masters before his final defeat to Judd Trump.
So, on the back of some terrific form on the baize, it’s definitely worth backing these Ronnie O’Sullivan whitewash odds at 23/10 as Coral’s latest bet of the day for October 12!
