Who will win the 2014 Mosconi Cup?
Europe are undefeated since 2009, mainly thanks to the consistency of sharp shooting Dutchman Niels Feijen.
There is always fierce rivalry between the Americans and Europeans when it comes to sport, and pool is no different. The Mosconi Cup is biggest event in the game, with Team Europe facing off against Team USA, both bidding to lift the famed trophy come the end of the weekend. The competition was first played in 1994, with the USA picking up 11 wins compared to Europe’s 8, with a draw coming in 2006 in Rotterdam. However Europe are undefeated since 2009, mainly thanks to the consistency of sharp shooting Dutchman Niels Feijen. Anything can happen on the day, so which team are the bookmakers fancying to lift the Mosconi Cup in Blackpool this December?
Europe inflicted a heavy defeated on the Americans in their own backyard last year, claiming an 11-2 victory, with that man Feijen being named MVP. But it will be an emotional weekend for Karl Boyes, as he will get the chance to play in front of his home crowd at the famed Blackpool Tower Circus. Boyes has a 92% win rate from his 11 previous Mosconi Cup matches, so he will occasion doesn’t overwhelm his performance. With the likes of Boyes and Feijen on their side, it is no surprise Europe are the massive favourites with the bookies and punters alike, with odds priced at 4/11. But don’t write off Team USA just yet, as captain Mark Wilson will have his players truly motivated to regain some pride after last year’s humbling defeat. The bookmaker have them priced at 2/1, so they still definitely are in with a chance. Of course that element of unpredictability is part of the fun of gambling, but it is definitely increased when it comes to sports betting, thanks to human error amongst sportsmen, and is perhaps one reason why sports themed slot games like Masters Snooker Cashdrop appeal so much.
Masters Snooker Cashdrop, found at JackpotCity.org, has the jackpot that all slots games feature, but provides you with several other ways of ensuring you win, that betting on an actual snooker game or tournament at one of the bookies’ sites can’t match. The best one might be the ‘chain reaction’ feature, whereby every time you get a winning reel of matching icons, these are immediately replaced by new icons – often matching ones again – once it has paid out. Thus you can win several times over.
