Trump can deliver more success

England’s Judd Trump has earned four ranking titles in the 2019/20 season. There could be another on the way on Sunday as he takes on the challenge of the Players Championship final.

Trump made light work of things in the first two rounds, beating 16th seed Michael Holt and then 8th seed John Higgins by a 6-3 scoreline. That was comfortable enough and it put him through to the semi-finals against Stephen Maguire.

There was a tighter squeeze for Trump there as he needed a deciding frame success to see off the Scotsman. There is a strong head to head record in favour of Trump over Bingtao as well, to suggest that the Englishman will touch upon success.

(odds taken 1845 GMT, Saturday 29th February)

There have been three previous meetings between the two players. Trump has won each of them and not only that but convincingly as well. Trump didn’t concede more than one frame in any of his three wins over Bingtao, the most recent of which was at least year’s German Masters.


Bingtao faces an uphill struggle in the final

China’s Yan Bingtao has picked up a ranking title this season. That was back at the Riga Masters in July last year. There has been some more recent form from him in ranking events though after a really poor run of things in such events.

He reached the semi’s of the UK Championship, then recently made the final four at the Welsh Open and the Snooker Shoot-out. So this run at Southport continues a good streak of positive form from him.

Bingtao opened his 2020 Players Championship account with a 6-2 win over Kyren Wilson, before winning a deciding frame in the quarter-finals against Joe Perry.

He then blitzed Shaun Murphy 6-1 in a massive upset in the semi-finals. This is just the second time in his career that he has taken part in the main draw of the Players Championship. He lost in the first round in 2018.


Judd Trump vs Yan Bingtao Betting Advice

Bingtao is in a purple patch of form at the moment, but the head to head and even better form of Trump suggests that he is going to come away empty-handed.

For the Players Championship snooker final betting 2020, it has to be Trump all the way and comfortable enough to cover a -3.5 handicap while he is at it.
