Hot tip: Ronnie O’Sullivan 5-1

World No.1 Judd Trump is the favourite for the 2021 Betfred Masters but Ronnie O’Sullivan represents decent value at 5-1 to lift a record-extending eighth crown.

Of course, you never know what you will get from the Rocket, 45, but the bigger the event these days, the more fired-up he becomes.

The reigning world snooker champion plays China’s Ding Junhui in a blockbuster first-round clash on Wednesday afternoon. Could potentially meet Trump in the semi-finals.

Mid Price: Mark Selby 13/2

Mark Selby returned to winning ways last month when he thrashed O’Sullivan in the Scottish Open final.

The three-time world champ has won 11 ranking finals in a row and is looking to break Stephen Hendry’s record before the end of this season.

The 37-year-old has been working closely with mind coach Chris Henry and the confidence is back in his game.

The Leicester Jester faces Scot Stephen Maguire in the opening round on Tuesday evening but knows Neil Robertson could lurk in the quarter-finals.

Longshot: Stuart Bingham 28/1

In this 16-man Triple Crown event, Stuart Bingham is the defending champion, having beaten Ali Carter 10-8 in the 2020 final – which was overshadowed by a prankster’s fart machine going off at a packed Ally Pally.

The No.1 seed’s first match is against Thailand Thepchaiya Un-Nooh on Monday and Bingham, 44, will fancy his prospects of getting to the semi-finals at the very least.

The event has been moved to the behind-closed-doors confines of the Marshall Arena. And the lack of atmosphere and intensity, not to mention the dredge of competing again in silence in Milton Keynes, could see a few upsets.

The winner will scoop a mammoth £250,000 on Sunday January 17.
