- The Bristol potter has nine wins to Gould’s five victories
- Four of their last eight meetings have gone to a deciding frame
Trump 9/2 to beat Gould 4-3
The PTC Snooker Finals are currently taking place ahead of the 2016 World Championship, and you can back Judd Trump to narrowly overcome Martin Gould 4-3 in their evening match-up at a tasty 9/2 as Coral’s bet of the day!
Bristol’s Ace in the Pack holds a strong record over his latest challenger going into this Manchester-based event, having secured nine victories compared to Gould’s five wins since their first meeting back 2008.
The young snooker star recently overcame Joel Walker with a thumping 6-0 whitewash in the China Open and enters this PTC Finals duel as an overwhelming favourite, but his London opposition, who won a maiden career ranking event this year, is sure to make it a tight contest.
Deciding frame likely in baize battle
In what is set to be a closer match-up than most may expect, there is a history of deciding frame shootouts between the potting pair, with recent encounters being extremely tight.
Of Trump and Gould’s last eight competitive meetings, four of those have had to be decided by a final frame face-off, including at the 2016 German Masters, last year’s World Grand Prix semi-final and both the 2013 and 2014 Champions League.
Recent results bode well for the Juddernaut though, with the four-time ranking event victor having prevailed in five of their previous six match-ups since 2014, proving he has the confidence and momentum to edge out Gould again here.
With the 2016 World Snooker Championship just around the corner, likely contenders for the Crucible crown in Sheffield such as Trump will see this as testing ground for the biggest event on the calendar. So back the quick-firing cueist to overcome tough competitor Gould 4-3 in their PTC Finals clash at 9/2!
