Betfred World Championship final
Resumes 2pm Monday

Bookmakers are struggling to separate John Higgins and Mark Selby in the Betfred World Championship final despite the veteran Scot holding a 10-7 advantage going into the last day of Crucible action.

Higgins, a 23-10 shot before the final, is 10-11 with Hills in the race to 18 frames, while Selby can be backed at 11-10 with Betfair and the potential for a close scrap is obvious.

Selby showed his trademark battling qualities to launch a late fightback on Sunday, winning the last three frames after Higgins had stormed into a 10-4 advantage.

It's 9-2 with Coral and Ladbrokes that the final turns into a late night epic by going the full distance of 35 frames, and bet365's total over/under frame line is set at 32.5.

The first frame of the day could well set the tone for the session and Betfred go 4-6 Selby takes it with Higgins at 11-10.
