The 2013 German Masters snooker betting is being well covered at online betting exchange Betfair. Not only can you find great market value in the outright betting, but you can tune in to some of the live action from Berlin through the Betfair Live Video service. This is a great way to get closer to the snooker action, something which will naturally aid your live in-running betting, all of which can be done at the betting exchange Betfair. Not only does the exchange offer great value in its peer to peer betting platform, but now their fixed odds markets as well can be enjoyed to get the best of both worlds.
Sadly for many, reigning champion Ronnie O’Sullivan is not back to defend his crown in Berlin, so 2013 Masters champion Mark Selby heads into the tournament as narrow favourite. He has rediscovered his top form over the last few months or so and is looking the man to beat. After his third Masters title in January, he looks a sound bet to follow it up in Germany. However, the playing field in snooker at the moment is pretty level. Selby’s best run at the relatively new German masters was a run to the final in 2011. He was beaten then in a thrilling match 9-7 by Mark Williams but exited in the quarter finals last year. He is the man in form and full of confidence at the moment and is trading around 6.2 with Betfair to take the title.
But the expectation is that there will be a close fight. Australia’s Neil Robertson is bang on his game at the moment and is trading at very good value around 7.4 to back at online betting exchange Betfair. It was Robertson who Selby beat in the final of the Masters back in January and therefore that should make him good trending value at the German masters for the former World Champion.
Also around the same mark, inevitably is Judd Trump. The youngster, like Selby, crashed out of the 2012 German masters in the quarter finals and did take the International Championship title at the back end of 2012 (beating Neil Robertson there) but has since struggled to make his market in the UK Championship and the Masters, to many people’s surprise. He’s not the type of player that you are likely to keep down for long though and should be in the mix and isn’t a bad quote to back a 7.8, but because he has just looked a little short, laying him at 8.2 could be more valuable.
Another contender this year will be Ding Junhui who has taken a good deal of action on the 2013 German Masters snooker betting outright winner market. He looks the best challenger beyond the big three, but Mark Allen, Shaun Murphy, Stephen Maguire and Ali Carter also show a lot of value in a wide open field. 2011 winner Mark Williams is back out at a quote of 26 with online betting exchange Betfair. There was big surprise in qualifying as John Higgins a two time winner of the tournament when it was the German Open, was beaten by Peter Lines.
