The Scottish Open is the third of the 2019-20 Home Nations Series. The tournament has not been won by a Scottish player since 1999 and John Higgins is desperate to change that this year. He was runner-up in 2016 and will be around the 10/1 mark to go one better this time around. Mark Allen won the tournament last year, but he is yet to reach a final this year having fallen short in the semi-finals of four events already.
