SHAUN MURPHY VS JUDD TRUMP PREDICTION

Although Trump has a fairly dominant 22-11 lead over Murphy when it comes to career meetings, the latter will take some confidence from the fact he has emerged victorious on three of the last four occasions they have met each other. This is already Murphy’s best run at the Crucible since he reached the final in 2015 and he has shown a solid level of play in wins over Mark Davis and Yan Bingtao but he will need to raise his standard even further if he is to trouble tournament favourite Trump here, who has lived up to his billing so far yet still has more in the tank. Given the superb form Trump has been in this season, backing the 2019 world champion to overcome a handicap of -3.5 frames could be worth a go here.
