Stuart Bingham Preview – Masters title defence still on for Bingham

Stuart Bingham is a step closer to a title defence at the Masters this year after taking a win over Shaun Murphy in the quarter-finals.

That has been some steady form from him so far, and it was a comfortable 6-3 victory that he took over Murphy.

That followed up on his opening round success over Thepchaiya Un-Nooh.

Bingham is the 4/6 odds-on favourite for the win in this fixture* (odds taken 2043 GMT, Friday, 15th January).

But he is narrowly down in the head to head against Bingtao in their seven previous meetings.

Bingham is W3 L4 against the Chinese player.

The most recent meeting that they had was at last year’s Welsh Open, Bingtao winning that on a deciding frame.

Our betting prediction:
Yan Bingtao 6-5 correct score

Bet at Betfred

(odds taken 2043 GMT, Friday, 15th January)


In the correct score market, a Stuart Bingham 6-4 option is at 11/2* (odds taken 2043 GMT, Friday, 15th January).

At this stage of the tournament, you would think that matches are going to get a little tighter and tenser.

Both Maguire and Bingtao have hit two centuries in this tournament so far.

Masters title defences are not an easy thing to pull off. Last season Bingham showed little form ahead of his Masters title.

That has been the same this season, but he is two matches away from another remarkable title.


Yan Bingtao Preview – Can Bingtao keep his journey going?

It has been a great run from Yan Bingtao who has shrugged off underdogs odds in both Master matches so far.

This is the tournament debut for the Chinese player who had hit the quarter-finals in two of the seven ranking events this season.

But his recent form wasn’t really there as he made a second-round exit in each of his three ranking tournaments just before the Masters.

The win for Bingtao in the match outright is running at a quote of 6/5* (odds taken 2043 GMT, Friday, 15th January).

What makes this really interesting is that he is on a three-match winning streak of Bingham.

So that does make him a very interesting prospect for this Masters semi-final fixture on Saturday.

It has been a pretty cool and collected Masters run from the 20-year-old.

He opened the tournament by knocking out 4th seed Neil Roberston.
