MARK ALLEN VS JAMIE CLARKE PREDICTION

World number four Mark Allen has had one of the most consistently high seasons on tour despite not having picked up a title as he reached the final of the Tour Championship in June and has featured in a further six semi-finals so he is certainly one of the leading contenders for the Crucible trophy this year. He faces Jamie Clarke who, at world number 89, is the lowest ranked player in the tournament but the Welsh potter will relish this opportunity despite the lack of a crowd usually associated with such an occasion. Clarke battled his way through three rounds of qualifying to reach the main draw which is no small feat in itself, but Allen is a huge step up in class compared to anyone he faced there and the Northern Irishman can win this match while covering a -4.5 handicap.
