World Open Betting Preview – Stevens can prove too strong for Selt

Roy The Boy thinks Matthew Stevens will beat Matthew Selt in the World Open on Tuesday morning in China.

Stevens can prove too strong for Selt in World Open

A resurgent Matthew Stevens is expected to beat Matthew Selt tomorrow morning in the World Open in China.

Stevens, who has had to come through a wild-card round to make it into the competition proper, is currently ranked 46.  It’s a far cry from his two runner-up spots in the World Championship during the mid-noughties. Indeed a lot of water has gone under the bridge, in his case a divorce and bankruptcy.

Tomorrow’s rival, Matthew Selt, is ranked 20 places higher than the Welshman but the books can barely split them generally going 10/11 and 11/10.

With personal problems seemingly behind him Stevens has been playing some great stuff recently, having a deep run in the Riga Masters (helped by a few walkovers) and, more recently, in the Indian Masters where he took Stuart Bingham to a deciding frame in the last-32 stage.
