Favorites to win this year’s Snooker Shootout are Mark Selby and John Higgins both with odds of 14/1.Selby recently lost in the final of the Masters to Ronnie O’Sullivan, however, along the way to the final Selby knocked Higgins out winning 6-5 in the quarter-finals and devastated Shaun Murphy 6-1 in the semi-finals. Selby also lost in the final of the UK championship earlier this season to Neil Robertson.
Higgins has been struggling in recent years. However, he has made a number of finals and has recently shown that he is returning to his former World Championship winning form. Many believe that the one frame matches of the Snooker Shootout could suit Higgins’ style as it never takes him very long to find his pace at the table.
