Here at the Paddy Power Blog we aim to entertain and amaze you, and every now and again we even tip something correctly! This is one of those times!
Last week before the World Matchplay got under way in Blackpool we talked up the credentials of James Wade and how he tends to bring his best game to the Winter Gardens. He won the competition in 2007 and is a four-time finalist. Maybe it’s the format, maybe it’s the venue, who knows, but The Machine tends to perform exceptionally at this tournament.
Hopefully people who read the preview had a little bit of the 15/2 that was around for a Taylor v Wade final. We also backed The Power to win the tournament outright at 13/8 and there to be a nine darter at 5/4!
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog for some more super-hot tipping. And remember if all else fails we’ll probably make you laugh and put up a picture of a model in lucky pants! Happy days.
