Lewis v Jenkins: Bull to charge Jackpot

the last time the players met on TV, at the UK Open, Jenkins ran out a 9-7 winner

The Ladbrokes World Championship reaches the business end as Terry Jenkins and Adrian Lewis face off. The arrival of the quarter finals means a change in format with the winner being the first to five sets. Despite some early hiccups against Nigel Heydon and Robert Thornton, Adrian Lewis was comfortable in his 4-0 victory over Wayne Jones, while Jenkins has been as consistent as anyone so far, dropping only two sets.

Jackpot is a best-priced 4/9 favourite with the tournament sponsors, Ladbrokes, while Jenkins is offered up at 21/10 to pull the slight upset. Many will fancy Lewis, and understandably so, but it should be noted the last time the players met on TV, at the UK Open, Jenkins ran out a 9-7 winner.

The Bull is also available at a favourable price on the handicap. Paddy Power give the Ledbury man a 1.5 set head start at odds of 5/4 against. Of the last eight televised meetings between the pair, Jenkins holds three outright victories as well drawing another encounter in the 2011 Premier League.

Jenkins may also be worth a look in the highest average market offered up by Victor Chandler. Despite posting a second round average nearly seven points higher than that of Lewis, Jenkins is the outsider at 7/4 to land the odds.

Adrian Lewis will be the popular choice with many, but there are some favourable statistics in Jenkins favour going into the match, as he looks to overcome arguably the biggest hurdle remaining in his bid to finally win a major.

Recommended Bet:

Terry Jenkins +1.5 sets  @ 5/4 with Paddy Power
