We have seen Ronnie O'Sullivan the favourite lose to the only amateur ever to qualify for the final stages James Cahill, in fact the top three in the World Rankings have failed to reach the Quarter final stage for the first time.</p><p>This leaves the Australian and former world champion Neil Robertson as joint favourite at 7/4 (2.75). After reaching the previous four finals in the World Snooker schedule there were concerns that despite his brilliant form fatigue could become a problem during this seventeen day marathon event however, he has made it through his opening two matches easily. In the opening round he beat Cypriot Michael Georgeiu 10-1 followed by a 13-6 victory over the 2005 champion Shaun Murphy who did test the Australian severely in the early stages of their match. Already the winner of three world ranking titles this season he has drawn the four time World Champion John Higgins in the pick of the Quarter Finals. The Scotsman John Higgins has rediscovered his best form back at the Crucible Theatre beating Stuart Bingham 13-11 but at his age playing Neil Robertson straight after may be “A Bridge too Far” at his age.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;The magic continues for the Wizard of Wishaw ✨ &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#ilovesnooker&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@Betfred&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— World Snooker (@WorldSnooker) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;29 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>David Gilbert snooker's newest addition to the elite top16 has been impressive beating one of the most dangerous qualifiers Joe Perry in his opening match followed by a very solid victory over the reigning world champion Mark Williams. He continues to play fantastic snooker under the radar and is a dangerous opponent for Kyren Wilson in their quarter final. These two contested the German Masters final earlier in the season when Kyren Wilson won 9-7. Kyren Wilson turned around a 1-6 deficit against Barry Hawkins in a match of the highest quality containing nine century breaks, five of them Kyren's. A semi finalist the last two seasons here and winner of two ranking titles in the current season Kyren Wilson has become a permanent fixture in the later stages of this great championship.</p><p>Gary Wilson has been one off many surprise package’s in this seasons Championship despite being in his fifteenth season as a professional this former taxi driver has elevated his status in the sport to a new level. In the opening round he beat the exciting Belgian talent Luca Brecel 10-9 winning the final frame that took seventy-nine minutes. This achievement entered the record books for the longest ever frame played at the Crucible Theatre. He backed this up in the second round outstaying the three time champion Mark Selby 13-11 which is something few have done at this great event. His quarter final opponent will be Ali Carter who himself fought back from 1-5 against Zhou Yuelong in determined fashion. He beat Jack Lisowski in the opening round after winning three qualifying rounds and twice a finalist at this great event Ali Carter has plenty of Crucible Theatre experience to draw on.</p><p>Scotland’s Stephen Maguire can consider himself the most lucky of all Quarter finalists beating China’s Tian Pengfei 10-9 In the opening round after trailing 7-9 while requiring a snooker. He followed that beating the “Giant Killing” amateur James Cahill 13-12 despite looking second best throughout their final session. His quarter final opponent Judd Trump found his form in the nick of time against Ding Junhui recovering from 7-9 at the start of the final session to win 13-9. He struggled to win in his opening match against talented Thai Thepchayia un-Nooh but came through when it mattered and that has become his mantra this current season proving his metal on numerous occasions.</p><p> </p><p></p><h2>Outright Odds</h2><p></p><ul> <li>Judd Trump – 15/8 (2.88) Paddy Power </li> <li>Neil Robertson – 9/4 (3.25) Paddy Power </li> <li>Kyren Wilson – 11/2 (6.50) William Hill </li> <li>John Higgins - 8/1 (9.00) Bet365 </li> <li>Ali Carter – 12/1 (13.00) Bet365 </li> <li>David Gilbert – 33/1 (34.00) Ladbrokes</li> <li>Gary Wilson – 33/1 (34.00) Ladbrokes </li> <li>Stephen Maguire – 33/1 (34.00) Ladbrokes </li></ul><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;"}[/]</p><p></p><h2>Verdict and Recommended Bets</h2><p></p><p>We already advised readers and followers Neil Robertson pre-event for the World Snooker Championship at 5/1 (6.00) each way and now Judd Trump is through to the Quarter final we can expect him to improve reaching the final comfortably.</p><p>Don’t forget we also advised the Neil Robertson/ Judd Trump as finalists at 14/1 (15.00)</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;That quarter-final feeling! 💪 &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#ilovesnooker&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@Betfred&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@judd147t&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— World Snooker (@WorldSnooker) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;29 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p><u>Judd Trump to make the final @ 4/7 (1.57) at <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker">William Hill</a></u></p><p> </p><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Betfred World Snooker Championship 1st Round Preview and Betting Tips"><strong>Previously advised in article:</strong></a></p><ul> <li>Neil Robertson – each way @ 5/1 (6.00) <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365 </a></li> <li>Name the finalists – Neil Robertson v Judd Trump @ 14/1 (15.00) Bet365</li></ul>
