World Grand Prix Betting: Newton v Henderson

Newton's odds shortened dramatically in the outright winner market

Wes Newton produced one of the standout performances in the first round of the World Grand Prix and now looks set to book a place in the quarterfinals for the fifth time in a major this year.

Having been handed one of the tougher opening round draws for a seeded player he displayed all the characteristics of a man confident with the way that he is playing. Even when losing the opening set to Colin Lloyd there were no signs of panic from Newton as he burst back to win the next two sets to nil.

It was a performance that saw his odds shorten dramatically in the outright winner market, where he can now be backed at odds of 10/1 with Sky Bet.

Next up is John Henderson who beat an in-form Justin Pipe on Monday night. The Scotsman was a comfortable 2-0 winner but the manner of his victory was distinctly unremarkable. There’s an obvious gulf in class between these two players, and away from the short opening round format there is very little scope for an upset.

Although ‘The Warrior’ should cruise this one there’s no value in backing him at odds of 1/4 to do so. I do, however, like the 8/13 that Ladbrokes offer on Newton winning by two clear sets in their Handicap market.

And when we expect a short game it also makes sense to back the number of 180s to be low – fewer legs means fewer opportunities to hit maximums. Back the Evens offered by Sky Bet on there being less than 5.5 180s.

Recommended Bets:

Back Wes Newton -1.5 sets @ 8/13 with Ladbrokes

Back Under 5.5 180s @ Evens with Sky Bet
