MARK SELBY VS KURT MAFLIN PREDICTION

Three-time world champion Mark Selby naturally comes into this event as one of the favourites, especially given his ability to maintain a high standard of play over a long format, and he will also be determined to erase the demons of last year where he lost a gripping semi-final against Ronnie O’Sullivan from a winning position. This is no easy opener against Kurt Maflin though, who reached the quarter-finals of just his second appearance at the Crucible last year. He will relish being the underdog once more but Selby is the favourite to progress here should he play somewhere close to his best.
