Webster v Beaton: Possible classic on the cards

this is one that I feel may go the distance

Mark Webster and Steve Beaton will do battle on Friday night, in a match that could go right to the wire. Neither former World Champion has been at their best in recent months but will see this tournament as the perfect way to warm up for the upcoming World Championships later this month.

Webby has been made the early 4/7 favourite but Beaton won’t be a pushover, by any means. One thing that The Bronzed Adonis will never do is give up. He will fight every lost cause, something Webster will be more than aware of and the Welshman will have to fully focus to nullify Beaton.

A lot of matches in the first round will be decided within the first 2-3 legs, however, this is one that I feel may go the distance, making odds of Evens on more than 9.5 legs very appealing. SkyBet are offering 6/1 on Webster to clinch a 6-5 victory and the same firm offer 7/1 on Beaton to win by the same score-line and a small stake on both may be worthwhile.

Looking past this match-up, whichever player progresses will fancy their chances of reaching the final, with all the “big boys” on the opposite side of the draw. Beaton is a best priced 66/1 with Boylesports to win the tournament and they also offer 20/1 on Webster in the same market. Taking the draw into consideration, an each-way bet on either player may be very profitable and if I had to choose one I would go with the Welshman.

This has the potential to be a classic. Even with the short format we may see some twists and turns along the way and I for one will certainly be keeping a close eye on this match.
