Masters quarter-final tips: Judd Trump and Ronnie O’Sullivan domination, Jack Lisowski surprise

Masters action at Alexandra Palace continues as the historic tournament enters its quarter-final stage.

Bookies favourite Judd Trump sealed his spot in the last-eight with a pulsating victory over Kyren Wilson.

The number one seed found himself 3-0 down at one point but rallied to win the next five frames.

Wilson managed to level the match at 5-5, though it was the class of Trump that ultimately prevailed as the Englishman took the match 6-5.

Trump will now take on Ali Carter who dumped out Mark Williams on Monday.

Carter sealed a 6-4 victory over the Welshman in what proved to be a back-and-forth contest.

As the defending champion, it’s no surprise Trump is priced as the big favourite for this encounter. The 34-year-old is eyeing up his third Masters crown and it would take a mighty Carter effort in order to halt his progress.

Trump bagged one century in his opening round match against Wilson. We’re backing him to double that tally against Carter and bag two at around the 11/4 mark.

Joint-tournament favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan is also through to the quarter-finals following his 6-3 victory over Ding Junhui.

The Chinese player bagged a sensational 147 but ultimately came up short against the Rocket who will now square off with Barry Hawkins.

O’Sullivan made two century breaks in his first match and came withing seven points of making it a hat-trick.

Hawkins will be no pushover, especially after his 6-3 win over Neil Robertson, though our money remains on O’Sullivan who loves to turn on the style at Ally Pally.

The 48-year-old has won this event seven times and reached a total of 13 finals.

With that in mind, we’re backing a Ronnie double. The Rocket to produce the highest break and win the match.

Our third tip comes in the Shaun Murphy against Jack Lisowski quarter-final.

Murphy put on a solid display in the opening round as he sealed a 6-2 victory over Zhang Anda.

Lisowski, on the other hand, produced one of the surprises of the round as he took out second seed Luca Brecel with a 6-2 win.

Despite his efforts, Lisowski is even money for his clash quarter-final clash with Murphy – a price we simply can’t pass up.

The 32-year-old hasn’t enjoyed his best season, though on his day, Jack-Pot is more than capable of beating the best players in the world.

Ally Pally tends to bring out the best in great talents, and we’re backing Lisowski to continue his Masters run at Evs.
