4 more places in the quarter finals are still up for grabs at the Crucible with the tie of the round, Mark Williams V Ronnie O’Sullivan. Compare odds
Steve Davis is grabbing all the headlines today as he beat top seed John Higgins to become the oldest quarter finalist in this event since 1983. Davis lead 6-3 and was still 6/4 to progress, his championship odds were touching 500/1 with William Hill before the first frame with Higgins.
Now, however, Davis is 40/1 with Totesport to win outright and 11/2 with Betdaq to beat Robertson in the quarter final. O’Sullivan is 7/2 fav with Victor Chandler and is currently locked at 8-8 with Mark Williams.
Ding Junhui, now 5/1 2nd fav with Betfred, is leading 5-3 over Shaun Murphy. One bet of interest is Mark Allen at 15/2 with Totesport. He has made a few centuries, including the tournament top score of 146, must play unseeded Dott in the quarters and a prospective semi against nobody in stunning form.
