We are dipping our toes into the second round of the 2020 Snooker World Championship in this tip preview.

Both Williams and Bingham had relatively comfortable passages past their respective first round opponents.

This is going to be an intriguing clash on Wednesday. It is the 2020 Masters champion Bingham who is going into the fixture as the odds-on favourite.

The winner of this match would meet the winner of the Ding Junhui vs Ronnie O’Sullivan second-round match.

Mark Williams Preview – Can 3rd seed Williams prevail?

Mark Williams will be pleased with his work in the opening round of the 2020 Snooker World Championship

He collected a comfortable 10-5 win over Scotland’s Alan McManus to get through.

Former World Champion Williams, who won his last title in 2018, hasn’t had the greatest of seasons to be fair.

A title has so far eluded him, the Welshman putting an appearance in in one ranking final so far, which was eleven months ago at the 2019 China Championship.

But he did show a better hand when he turned up for the Gibraltar Open in March, getting through the final four there.

It was in the second round of last year’s World Championship that Williams exited the competition.

Our betting prediction:
Bingham winning margin Under 3.5

(odds taken 23:35 GMT, Tuesday 4th August)


Williams is the 6/5 underdog in the match outright for this contest* (odds taken 23:35 GMT, Tuesday 4th August).

The Welsh Potting Machine will be out for a little bit of revenge after having met this year already.

That was in the 2020 Masters, in which Williams barely had a look-in in a 2-6 loss against Bingham.

Williams narrowly trails the head to head 8-9 against Bingham.


Stuart Bingham Preview – Bingham worth backing?

Stuart Bingham was up against Ashely Carty in the opening round of the 2020 Snooker World Championship.

It was a 10-7 victory that the reigning Masters champion took to get through that.

Bingham is also a former World Champion having collected the title in 2015 with a success over Shaun Murphy in the final.

his 2020 Masters success, which came in such a crazy tournament with the big names all falling early, has been the highlight of Bingham’s season.

From all of his ranking tournament appearances, he has made it to the quarter finals of just one event.

So even though he is going as the odds-on favorite in his one, he’s not exactly the most convincing of options.

Stuart Bingham and Mark Williams will meet for the first time in a World Championship match.

But then Bingham has won three of the last four meetings between the two players which is a reasonable enough option to send him into this as favorite.

We can only foresee a tight match coming up in this second-round fixture.
