In-form duo could continue to score well in second semi-final

Winner will meet Kyren Wilson in Sunday's final

John Higgins meets Mark Allen in the semi-finals of the Masters
1 of 1

Semi-final
BBC2 & Eurosport 2, 7pm Saturday

The Alexandra Palace audience could be in for a cracking Masters semi-final clash between John Higgins and Mark Allen on Saturday with the winner to face Kyren Wilson on Sunday.

Higgins and Allen have both been scoring well in north London and with the pair having a close personal series (the head-to-head is 10-10), bookmakers have the majority of markets covered pretty well.

The Wizard of Wishaw could do the business but Higgins has not always been a major player at the Masters and that may deter potential backers.

Deciding whether to go over or under 1.5 centuries is not an easy call, so with both men keen to put on a show take a chance on one of the pair producing a run of 118 or more.

Wilson, who was backed at 50-1 in the days leading up to the start of the tournament, fought back to pip Judd Trump 6-5 to reach his first Major final.

Recommendation
Highest break over 117.5
1pt 17-20 Betway
