After a win for Neil Robertson at the European Masters, the 2019/20 season rolls on to Berlin this week for the German Masters. There were a whole host of top seeds falling in the qualifiers for this one.

So it is a ranking tournament which isn’t going to be producing one of the strongest fields. But will that help the snooker betting options for the event at the Tempodrom?

The German Masters 2020 starts on Wednesday, January 29th and there are live streams via Betfair.

Trump/Robertson Final?

At 7/2 odds a Neil Roberton v Judd Trump option can be taken in the Name the Finalists market* (betting odds taken from Betfair on January 28th, 2020 at 22:23). That on the surface of things looks well worth a wager.

They are the top two players in the world in what appears to be a severely weakened draw. That is because of qualification glitches for a lot of big names such as Mark Selby, Mark Allen and last year’s winner Kyren Wilson to name but a few.

So it’s reasonable enough to expect Trump and Robertson to make it through their respective halves of the draw.

A refreshed Trump can come back firing

Judd Trump failed to qualify for the European Masters so he had a break on the sidelines. That means that he has plenty of time to prepare himself for this. That little break could have done him the power of good after not having gotten up and running at the Masters.

His best previous run at the German Masters came in 2014 when he was the losing finalist against Ding Junhui. It has been a superb season from Trump who has claimed three ranking titles. He is the 7/4 outright favourite for success in German Masters 2020 snooker betting* (betting odds taken from Betfair on January 28th, 2020 at 22:23)

Robertson’s form puts him back in the frame

Following a title for Australia’s Neil Robertson at the European Masters recently, he should be considered again. He does have slightly the trickier of the draws compared to Trump. That is because  Robertson could bump into John Higgins at the quarter-final stage. Roberston was a losing quarter-final at the German Masters last season. His previous best was a semi-final in 2013. Robertson is a 10/3 shot to win the tournament* (betting odds taken from Betfair on January 28th, 2020 at 22:23)

Other contenders

Former champion Ding Junhui goes as the eighth seed and is in the far more congested top half of the draw. Ding won the UK Championship recently but hasn’t looked quite as sharp since then. He has made back to back quarter-final exits at the German Masters in the last two seasons so should be a tempter to win the first quarter at 5/2 over Shaun Murphy.

Murphy did just reach the semi-finals of the Masters so could have claims. He also picked up the Chain Championship back in September. He missed out on a shot at the German Masters title in 2015 when he lost the final to Mark Selby.

From the third quarter of the draw, which is arguably the easiest of them, Graeme Dott is well worth a look. Dott is the 3/1 second favourite to win the quarter behind only Mark Williams* (betting odds taken from Betfair on January 28th, 2020 at 22:23). Given that the form of Williams has not shone for a while, a good look at the Scotsman could be worthwhile.

Predictions

As for the outright pick in German Master Snooker betting it has to be the Juddernaut. Judd Trump is coming back refreshed in having failed to qualify for the European Masters and that could work out as huge positive in what is a weak German Masters draw.

Given that Robertson had that extended week in the last ranking tournament, Trump lines up as our pick as the 7/4 favourite* (betting odds taken from Betfair on January 28th, 2020 at 22:23). A far more favourable draw should help his cause as well.
