Mark Allen is a strong bet to win 2023 European Masters Snooker tournament

  • Ronnie O’Sullivan (+500) is favored to win the 2023 European Masters Snooker tournament
  • Shaun Murphy (+1200) is coming off a Championship League victory in Leicester. 
  • The competition will take place at KIA Metropol Arena in Nuremberg, Germany from August 22 – 27, 2023

The European Masters is the second ranking event of the 2023-24 snooker season. After a qualifiers run narrowed the field in late July, 32 competitors will go head-to-head in Germany this August. World number one Ronnie O’Sullivan is favored despite not winning the event since way back in 2003.

The field is also loaded with big names such as Masters champion Judd Trump, 2022/23 player of the season Mark Allen, triple-crown winner Neil Robertson, and four-time Crucible champ Mark Selby.

Bad value on snooker legends?

Ronnie O’Sullivan (+500) will open up against Andy Hicks. The seven-time world champion withdrew from the Championship League Snooker draw. Back in April, he lost in the quarter-finals of the 2023 World Snooker Championship. While the 47-year-old is still the biggest draw in the sport, he’s hugely overpriced given his lack of recent success.

Judd Trump (+650) has won the European Masters twice before, in 2016 and 2017. He claimed his second Masters title earlier this year, but lost in the first round of the World Snooker Championship. The 33-year-old also blew a golden opportunity to reach the Championship League final group stage when a bad miss cost him a victory over Cao Yupeng.

Other big names

Mark Selby (+850) has won 22 ranking titles in his sterling 24-year career, including the 2020 European Masters. Back in April, he lost in the finals of the 2023 World Snooker Championship against Luca Brecel. The 40-year-old legend decided to skip the 2023 Champions League event, along with Neil Robertson (+900) and Mark Allen (+1000). 

Robertson won this event in 2019. As a 23-time ranking event winner, the Australian “Thunder from Down Under” is always dangerous. He lost in round 2 of the World Championships back in April.

Champions League winner

Shaun Murphy (+1200) scored a 3-0 final win over three-time world champion Mark Williams (+1600) in the Championship League in Leicester. The world No. 7 also ended the 2022 season red hot with victories at the Players Championship and Tour Championship.

Murphy takes on 2006 Crucible winner Graeme Dott in his first match at the European Masters. He’ll also face much stiffer competition in Germany given that Allen, O’Sullivan, Robertson and Selby all missed the first ranking event of the season, along with world champion Luca Brecel (+1400) and John Higgins (+1400).

Best Bet

Mark Allen (+1000) is a strong bet to capture his first European Masters after winning the 2022 Northern Ireland Open, the 2022 UK Championship, and the 2023 World Grand Prix. He also lost an spic semifinal match to Selby in the World Snooker Championships.
