SHAUN MURPHY VS MARK SELBY PREDICTION

Both finalists came from behind to win their semi-finals and are deserving of their spot in the climax to this year’s World Championship. When it comes to the favourite here though, it has to be Selby, who is proven to ground down his opponents in long-form matches. He may not be the most popular performer at the Crucible, but his relentless style gets results and that is exactly what is expected to transpire here. Murphy will no doubt play the flashier, more eye-catching snooker but the 'Jester from Leicester' will grind the magician down and secure a fourth world title in front of a capacity crowd at Sheffield.
