Coral Scottish Open quarter-finals tips
The inaugural Coral Scottish Open has provided snooker fans with plenty of drama and excitement on the baize so far at the Emirates Arena, and there is much more on the way in Glasgow in the quarter-finals.
Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins are leading the way at this stage of the tournament but they have been paired together in this round, while English Open winner Liang Wenbo still powers on and Judd Trump is going strong too.
So, ahead of the latest baize battles, Coral outline Scottish Open quarter-finals tips for punters to enjoy, as well as an acca to back during the action!
Higgins to topple O’Sullivan 5-3
In what is the pick of the quarter-finals clashes, five-time world champions O’Sullivan and Higgins collide on Scottish soil, with the latter being cheered on by his home crowd.
The Wizard of Wishaw edged out the Rocket with a 10-7 victory in the recent Champion of Champions final, and he will enter proceedings on home territory at 13/2 to earn a 5-3 success against his opponent this time out. O’Sullivan hasn’t been firing on all cylinders so far in the event and Higgins is the type of player that can punish any mistakes.
Trump to lead Milkins 3-1 after four frames
Bristol-born break builder Trump will be confident of progressing to the semis at the expense of next foe Robert Milkins, an opponent he has beaten in their last four successive meetings, including a 5-0 whitewash last year.
The Juddernaught is therefore a promising 29/20 to take a strong 3-1 lead after four frames played in their latest encounter.
Decider between Fu and Davis
Both Hong Kong cueist Marco Fu and Mark Davis came through tough tests in their round 3 outings, overcoming Neil Robertson and Mark Williams respectively in final frame shootouts.
With the two potters battling their way to this stage, another deciding frame to occur between the pair can be backed at a tasty 29/10.
De Lu and Wenbo to go 2-2
There’s an all-Chinese clash also taking place between Yu De Lu and reigning Coral English Open champion Wenbo, with the pair having won two matches apiece against each other in the past.
The two Far East cueists can therefore be backed to be level at 2-2 after four frames at 7/4 in another potentially close contest.
