The excitement of the World Snooker Championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield is reaching its peak, with fans from all over the globe fixated on their screens, anxious to discover the eventual victor. Experts are making their predictions, with Jimmy White and Alan McManus revealing their brackets and differing on who will lift the title.
While seven-time champion Ronnie O’Sullivan is the bookmakers’ favorite to win, both White and McManus have differing views on who will come out on top.
White, the world’s former number 2 and six-time World Crucible finalist, has a differing opinion. He firmly believes that Ronnie O’Sullivan is a suitable player and is well on his way to making it happen to eighth record Crucible crown. While speaking his mind, White commented, “The match against Hossein Vafaei showcased O’Sullivan’s determined and composed style of play. We did see him put all of his efforts into achieving excellence, so it’s quite clear that he will endure a booming performance in his sport for many years to come.
McManus noted that O’Sullivan faces an uphill battle in his quest for victory due to his limited success of only making it to the semi-finals at The Crucible on three occasions. While speaking live on TV, He speculates that Anthony McGill, also from Scotland, will take down O’Sullivan in the semis. According to McManus’ prediction, John Higgins will conquer Mark Allen in the other semi and then go on to beat McGill in the final to lift the trophy for the fifth time.
The bookmakers’ favorite, O’Sullivan, will face a stiff challenge in the remaining matches, with Mark Selby the likely opponent in the final if the seedings work out as planned. However, White and McManus believe the event will not play out as the seedings suggest.
As the quarter-finals move on, Mark Williams and Neil Robertson look to progress to the semi-finals. You can get the latest news and updates about the snooker competition by visiting https://snookers.pro/ today!
