2019 Masters Snooker Betting Tips & Preview

Snooker’s ‘Masters’, sponsored by Dafabet once again in 2019, is always one of the most eagerly anticipated tournaments on the snooker calendar. Read on for all our 2019 Masters Snooker betting tips…

The competition was staged for the first time in 1975 and from 1984 onwards it has been restricted to the top-16 players in the world rankings. The event takes place from 13th – 20th January 2019 at Alexandra Palace, London.


Ronnie’s Stab at a Eighth Masters Title

Remarkably there has only been one back-to-back winner of this competition since Paul Hunter claimed the title back in 2001 and 2002. That was Ronnie O’Sullivan who landed The Masters in 2016 and 2017. The ‘Rocket’ also won this tournament in 2014, 2009, 2007 and 2005.

Ronnie O’Sullivan is top-priced 13/5 for outright glory (with 888sport) and he is one of just three players priced at 10/1 or shorter.  Mark Selby 6/1 with BetVictor and Judd Trump, 8/1 with bet365*, are the others.

Dafabet Masters Snooker 2019 Betting Tips
The five-time World Champion has been in irresistible form this season. He has won 26 of the 28 matches he has played claiming the UK Championship, the Shanghai Masters and Champion of Champions in addition to making the semi-final of the BetVictor Northern Ireland Open and semi-final of the English Open – the two competitions where he incurred a loss.


Judd Trump & Mark Selby’s Inconsistencies

Given this phenomenal run of form it’s hard to oppose the 43-year-old O’Sullivan who is set to meet Stuart Bingham in the opening round. Conversely Judd Trump looks way too short in the 2019 Masters betting odds given his poor record in this tournament which has seen him exit at the first hurdle three times in the past five years and never reach the final.

Mark Selby is a not a safe bet either.  The ‘Jester from Leicester’ arrives at London’s Alexandra Palace, home of the Masters, is inconsistent form. He’s been eliminated in the opening round of two of the last three competitions he has played (defeated by James Cahill 6-3 and Neil Robertson 4-3). These snooker results sandwiched a run to the semi-final of the Northern Ireland Open where he suffered a luckless 6-5 elimination.


2019 Snooker Masters Draw

2019 Snooker Masters – 1st Round Draw

  • Mark Allen v Luca Brecel
  • Ding Junhui v Jack Lisowski
  • John Higgins v Ryan Day
  • Ronnie O’Sullivan v Stuart Bingham
  • Mark Selby v Stephen Maguire
  • Judd Trump v Kyren Wilson
  • Barry Hawkins v Shaun Murphy
  • Mark Williams v Neil Robertson

Bad Eggs

But this is a snooker competition where you need two full hands to count the players that are playing badly and are not performing like the player which earned the right to compete in this select field of 16. Luca Brecel, Ryan Day, Stuart Bingham, Barry Hawkins, Stephen Maguire, Mark Williams and John Higgins have all been extremely disappointing in recent competitions.

Good Eggs

But the ones to watch have to be Jack Lisowski, the exciting player who has reached snooker’s top-16 without winning a tournament. The resurgent Shaun Murphy and defending Champion Mark Allen.

Of course Shaun Murphy was beaten by Mark Allen in the final of the most recent ranking tournament, the Scottish Open but this still represented an improvement on the 2005 World Champion’s form and the best is surely yet to come. But Mark Allen has been majestic in recent months, winning the International Championship and finishing runner-up to Ronnie O’Sullivan in the UK Championship. His 2018/19 record shows 35 matches won and nine lost.

At Betfair’s 12/1 Mark Allen is worthy of a 2019 Masters snooker bet despite being in the same half of the draw as O’Sullivan, and Shaun Murphy is enormous value at bet365’s 25/1*.


Opening Round Jack Attack

Jack Lisowski is probably not going to take his maiden tournament victory here but he’s had deep runs in half of the ten ranking snooker tournaments he has played this year and has not been knocked-out in the first round of any tournament.

That run can continue at the expense of Ding Junhui who is another player performing way below his best possibly due to the renowned effect of first time fatherhood.

This pair have only met once before, in 2014 when Ding prevailed. But Lisowski is a very different player these days and his attacking style could throw the Chinaman off his stride before he breaks into a trot.  

This pair’s first round match is on Monday January 14th which is Day 2 of the competition so it’s an opportunity to get some early winnings together before the big-guns go into battle.
