I expect Tuesday’s last sixteen match between two Englishman, Judd Trump and Mark King, to be one of the feature table matches on the BBC.

Judd Trump, the recent Northern Ireland Open Champion, arrived in York a couple of weeks ago ready to add to his one previous UK Championship in 2011.

Mark King is a previous Northern Ireland Open Champion (2016), and how great it was to see him win after a 26 year career which has seen him accrue over 1.5 million pounds!

One amazing statistic between these two is that in 79 frames played, they have only managed one century each.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Head 2 Head: Trump 10 – 2 King
  • World Ranking: Trump – 5, King – 26

Betting Odds

  • Judd Trump – 1/4 Ladbrokes
  • Mark King – 39/11 Marathon Bet

The Verdict

I believe this match will be an easy Judd Trump victory against a player he has dominated his whole career, and after the scare versus Dominic Dale Sunday night where he had to pull out a century break to win the decider, I expect him to come out in the mood to dominate proceedings from the off.

Only once has Mark King beat Judd Trump, and that was back in 2008 in this championship 9-8 (which was Judd’s rookie season).

Given that Judd Trump has not lost a match of importance versus Mark King and the high profile television billing, I think we can expect him to cover the handicap.

Going back to that amazing statistic that they have only managed a total of two centuries in 79 frames played, it would be silly not to have a small bet at 12/5 on no match centuries.
