POTD: Ian White (-175) v Kim Huybrechts
Only four matches today and all are fairly lopsided. The one I like best is World #10 Ian Diamond White to get through World # 39 Kim Hurricane Huybrechts.
While Diamond trails Huybrechts 7-9 in lifetime head to head matchups, he has not lost to the Hurricane since 2018. ? has 13 career titles to his name, of which, three came in 2018, two in 2019, and one in 2020. Hurricane has only four career titles, three from 2013 and one from 2015. Hurricane has had minimal success in the past 2-3 years.
Simply put – Huybrechts is good, but White is better. The ? has been significantly better than the Hurricane in the last several years, particularly in televised matches and major tournaments. I expect that trend to continue.
Not much else for analysis on this one. Lay the juice at (-175), take the Diamond, and let’s start a fresh win streak.
