SHAUN MURPHY VS NOPPON SAENGKHAM PREDICTION

It has been a superb season for 2005 world champion Shaun Murphy and he cannot be discounted when talking about potential winners of this tournament. The Magician was victorious at the China Open and the Welsh Open and has reached a further two finals in a season where he has consistently reached the latter stages of tournaments throughout. His last appearance at an event saw him lose a sensational match against Mark Allen in the Tour Championship despite him making an incredible six centuries in a 9-8 defeat, so it is difficult to see him being troubled here. Thailand’s Noppon Saengkham – making his second appearance at the Crucible following a first round exit in 2017 – has not progressed beyond the third round of any event this season and so you would expect Murphy to win while covering the -4.5 handicap here.
