Wilson the narrow favourite in Masters duel

This is the fourth master’s appearance by Kyren Wilson. Sandwiching two first-round exits, he made that wonderful run to the final in 2018. He was beaten there by Mark Allen. Wilson still has only the one ranking title in his career, but the 28-year-old remains an exciting prospect.

Lisowski Correct Score 6-4


The question is when will he actually move up into the higher tier of winning tournaments consistently? The peak of his form in the 2019/20 season so far, came with a semi-final at the World Open. He did reach the final of the non-ranking Paul Hunter Classic as well. Because Wilson has not really gotten up and going this season, this should be a tight contest.

Can Lisowski get first Masters match win?

Lisowski does carry somewhat recent form into the Masters. He only made his debut at the tournament last year and fell at the first hurdle. After a very quiet season from him, like Wilson struggling to get consistency going, he came good at December’s Scottish Open.

Cheltenham’s Lisowski got to the final, losing to Mark Selby, but took good wins over the likes of John Higgins, Mark Allen and Thepachaiya Un-Nooh along the way. That may have boosted his confidence going into the winter break.

Kyren Wilson v Jack Lisowski Prediction and tip

This fixture looks as it may well be a long one. However, the pick and our snooker tip would have to be on Jack Lisowski at -1.5 handicap for 7/4.* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 13th, 2020 at 11:16 pm).

His big upswing in the form at the recent Scottish Open has to count for something and he has the head to head lead over Wilson.
