Coral Scottish Open round 3 tips
The Emirates Arena in Glasgow has witnessed a high standard of snooker so far in the latest of the Home Nations Series, and the Coral Scottish Open continues with a promising round 3 set of baize battles on Thursday.
An intriguing match-up between Ronnie O’Sullivan and Jimmy White is undoubtedly the pick of the encounters, while other world class potters such as home hope John Higgins and Australian Neil Robertson also feature.
So, ahead of the latest meetings, Coral outline Scottish Open round 3 tips for punters and fans to enjoy, as well as an interesting accumulator.
O’Sullivan to down White 4-1
For the second time this year close friends and exciting snooker stars O’Sullivan and White will collide in the Home Nations Series, with the Rocket having dispatched the Whirlwind 4-1 at the recent Northern Ireland Open.
Following that success for the five-time world champion, he is a promising 11/5 to record the same 4-1 result this time out after impressive form so far on Scottish soil.
Maguire and Williams to be 2-2 after four frames
In another fascinating pairing, home potter Stephen Maguire will face off against Welshman Mark Williams, with both looking to progress to tonight’s round 4.
Interestingly, the two veteran cueists are tied at six wins apiece in previous meetings, and another close contest can be expected here. Therefore, back proceedings to be level at 2-2 after four frames at 31/20 here.
Deciding frame between Robertson and Swail
Australian cueist and former world champion Robertson has been struggling for form of late and scrapped through his last Scottish Open clash against Gary Wilson.
Next up for the Thunder from Down Under is Northern Ireland’s Joe Swail, who edged a deciding frame victory over Robertson in their most recent meeting. Odds of 18/5 are therefore worth backing for there to be a final frame shootout here again.
Higgins to whitewash Xiwen
Much of the focus at this ranking event has been on home hope Higgins and he will look to continue his fine form of late with success over Chinese cueist Mei Xiwen.
The Wizard of Wishaw has been showcasing supreme form in these latter stages of his career and is 3/1 to whitewash his opponent 4-0 on home territory.
