Roy The Boy looks at the outright betting for the Snooker World Seniors Championship and thinks Fergal O'Brien is a good bit overpriced.
O’Brien the bet of the week in World Seniors Championship
He was an unlucky beaten finalist in the tournament last season and he may not win it this year, but at 12/1 Fergal O’Brien is massively over-priced in this weekend’s World Seniors Championship Snooker.
The Irishman’s credentials against Roy McLeod in the opening round of this competition, a race to two frames throughout, has been highlighted in this week’s Betswot Blog - See HERE
Since that piece was compiled O’Brien has proven himself to be in tip-top form. Last weekend, at the Snooker Legend’s tournament in Goffs Sales Ring on the outskirts of Dublin, the 43-year-old teamed up with Ken Doherty to win a doubles match against Ronnie O’Sullivan and Tony Knowles before, more impressively, beating ‘The Rocket’ in a straight head-to-head match/frame.
An unlikely victory for the Irish team there, allied to his personal frame wins, can have only buoyed O’Brien who should be backed to win the World Seniors at a double-digit price with a view to trading out stakes en-route to an appearance in the final.
