It’s Berlin up next on snooker’s non-stop roadshow.
The 2023 German Masters heads to the iconic Tempodrom, starting this Wednesday, February 1, and signals the tenth ranking event of the 2022-23 season.
Neil Robertson, Kyren Wilson, Jack Lisowski, and Luca Brecel represent the quartet from the top 16 who are still in the draw following a topsy-turvy qualifying round for some of the best on the baize.
28 remain – following the exclusion of Li Hang, Yan Bingtao, Zhao Jianbo, and Zhao Xintong to to match-fixing claims – and we’re here to try and pick the best outright bets and tips in Germany.
Neil Robertson to reach the final at 6/4 with bet365
Despite a disappointing start to 2023 – falling at the first stage at the Masters and World Grand Prix – Robertson is still a rightful favourite in Berlin.
The Australian’s best at this event was a 2020 final loss to Judd Trump, with Wednesday marking the tenth time the “Thunder from Down Under” would have taken part at the German Masters.
6/4 with bet365 for Robertson to reach the final looks like a good bet.
He will have to get past Joe Perry in the opening round and potentially navigate the shock Snooker Shootout winner Chris Wakelin – who is 125/1 with bet365 to register back-to-back TV titles – in the last 16.
Ricky Walden to win the German Masters at 11/1 with bet365
Walden comes to Berlin as the 18th seed and will be eyeing up back-to-back semi-finals at the German Masters.
The world number 21 made four big semi-finals on the tour last campaign but is struggling for that consistency this time around.
But he has good memories in Berlin, and with a BYE into the last 16 secured, 11/1 with bet365 is a good option for the Chester potter.
Kyren Wilson to win Quarter at 7/4 with bet365
It might turn out to be a shootout between Kyren Wilson and Jack Lisowski to win the top half of the draw in Berlin.
Wilson is the reigning European Masters and comes to the German Masters as a former winner from 2019.
In fact, the “Warrior” has played this event three times and never failed to reach the quarter-final stage.
7/4 with bet365 for Wilson to navigate three wins in which he will be favourite this week is priced well.
