Paul Hunter Classic is the third ranking snooker event of the 2018-2019 season. This event is a special mix between professionals and amateurs, gathering more than 100 players! There are 128 players to be exact. And yet, Shaun Murphy outshines them all.
According to online sportsbook news in Germany, all players will play against each other from the 22nd to 26th of August 2019 in Furth, Germany. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Paul Hunter Classic betting odds 2018 together.
Michael White Steps Aside for Shaun Murphy
The best online betting sites in Germany predict far better odds for Shaun Murphy (5.50) to win than the defending champion Michael White (15.0). The Paul Hunter Classic odds 2018 are saying that White will have no choice but to step down for Murphy.
In the 2017 final, Murphy was defeated by the Welshman 4-2. We thought that White would be the bookies’ favourite to win Paul Hunter Classic 2018. What changes this year?
Well, the answer is quite simple. After 2018 Kaspersky Riga Masters, Murphy takes the 8th place on the world ranking. In comparison, White is 20 ranks behind him. It’s true that number 8 is not that impressive. But when the top 7 won’t be competing in the Paul Hunter Classic, now we’re talking.

According to online gambling sites in Germany, Kyren Wilson is a more promising player than Michael White. His Paul Hunter Classic odds 2018 are at 6.00. Wilson is being as competitive as Murphy, with a number 9 spot on the world ranking. So apart from betting on Shaun Murphy, it’s a good idea to give Wilson a shot.
