The Snooker World Cup gets underway in Thailand on Monday and Scotland’s John Higgins and Stephen Maguire are the tournament 3/1 favs with Blue Square. Wales fall in behind them at 7/2 (Paddy Power) but neither team are in action on the opening day.
England, comprising of Ali Carter and Mark Selby, are 9/2 with and are just 1/7 (Stan James) to beat Brazil while China could be many people’s pick in the competition. Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo are a 7/1 chance with Betdaq.
The highly talented Luca Brecel teams up with Bjorn Haneveer to make Belgium’s team and they are a 66/1 outside shot (Boylesports).
