Northern Ireland Open tips for Wednesday
The exciting Coral Northern Ireland Open continues into Wednesday after a dramatic tournament so far, with this event being part of the new Home Nations Series.
Belfast is set to witness a truly intriguing baize battle as part of the upcoming second round meetings, as two of the greatest ever players to grace the sport collide with Ronnie O’Sullivan and Jimmy White contesting.
So, ahead of the latest snooker action, Coral outline Northern Ireland Open tips for Wednesday for fans and punters to enjoy what is sure to be another enthralling day at the Titanic Exhibition Centre.
O’Sullivan to topple White 4-1
In the pick of the matches on a fascinating Wednesday full of promising Belfast meetings, five-time world champion O’Sullivan takes on close friend and former six-time Crucible finalist White.
This meeting of snooker fan favourites will be the 44th encounter between the pair, though it’s the Rocket who has prevailed on 29 occasions to the Whirlwind’s 10 wins.
O’Sullivan has also won their last seven clashes since 2005 and hasn’t conceded more than a single frame in each of those games. Therefore, back the Rocket to overcome White with a 4-1 victory at a promising 21/10.
Brecel to whitewash Cope
Belgian break-builder Luca Brecel showcased his impressive talents in his first Northern Ireland Open match-up against former world champion Shaun Murphy, as he crushed the Magician with a 4-0 whitewash.
Jamie Cope is next up for the young Belgian talent and, after his stunning performance last time out, he is a tasty 11/2 to record another 4-0 result in front of the Belfast crowd.
Hawkins and Holt to have decider
Clashes between Michael White and Barry Hawkins have been very close in the past, with three of their meetings having gone to a deciding frame shootout.
Another final frame decider to occur can therefore be backed at a promising 11/5 as part of our Northern Ireland Open tips for Wednesday.
Higgins to lead 3-1 after four frames
Experienced Scot John Higgins has been in incredible form of late and is gunning for his third successive tournament victory, after recent China Championship and Champion of Champions triumphs.
In the latter event the Wizard of Wishard managed to topple O’Sullivan 10-7 and his fine form should see him easily overcome Sam Craigie here. So back the four-time world champion to take a 3-1 lead after four frames at 11/8.
