O'Sullivan is best priced at 2/9 for victory with Bet365
and who would back against him based on the form he has shown throughout the tournament?
Peter Ebdon Mark Williams, Neil Robertson and Matthew Stevens have all felt the wrath of the Rocket, who has fired in nine centuries and produced exhibition style 'one visit snooker'.
The crowd favourite has been huge favourite to go all the way since the early departure of many seeded players last week and has showed no signs of pressure, letting his unrivalled natural ability flow.
Carter is the clear underdog at 7/2 with Bet365, but will be quietly confident of pulling off the biggest victory of his career, having already beaten pre-tournament favourite Judd Trump.
The Captain has banished rumours of early retirement with a series of superb battling displays on the biggest stage of all, and is now appearing in his fifth major ranking final.
Carter lost out 18-8 to Ronnie in the 2008 final and is sure to use that as motivation for revenge; he is renowned for wearing his heart on his sleeve, but will need to remain composed against the ice cool Rocket.
The longer format allows time for both players to settle any nerves, but could favour the Rocket should he gather momentum and reel off consecutive frames as with the previous rounds.
O'Sullivan has made nine centuries so far, more than any other player in the competition and value lies in him adding more than 3.5 to that total during the final at 6/5.
Essex cueman Carter will be desperate to get off to a good start and is priced at 3/1 to win the first session (eight frames).
The match will be played over four sessions across two days, with the first starting on Sunday afternoon, the second at 7pm that evening and the climax on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon and evening.
It will be streamed live over the best of 35 frames from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, with the winner taking home a cheque for £250,000 .
