Gerwyn Price to beat Benito van de Pas – 4/5
We make the Welshman a slight favourite here at 4/5 over his higher ranked opponent tonight.
Price has been been very hot on the 180’s of late and enjoyed a slight upset over Michael Smith last time out and that has us fancying a decent 9/5 punt to have most 180’s and win the match against Benito van de Pas.
Expect it to be tightly matched though, after all the Dutch arrow-slinger is the world number 14. So, another bet worth checking out for this contest is for to be over (4.5) in total sets at 13/8.
Mensur Suljovic to score a win over Steve West – 3/10
We won’t lie, we’re pretty keen on Suljovic to send West packing here at 3/10.
The Austrian’s finishing has been awesome in recent tournaments, and while he’s not favourite on the 180’s from the spreads, there might be a little value on the 3/1 combo of Suljovic having the most 180’s, highest checkout and win. Or even just to have the highest checkout and claim victory at evens, if you’re not willing to go as far as the first punt.
After scoring his first TV title at the Champions League of Darts last month confidence is flowing like the Danube for Suljovic, so don’t be surprised if he knocks of the 4/1 shot to win & both to throw 4 or more 180’s as well.
Simon Whitlock to topple Richard North – 1/3
The Wizard has finally rediscovered a bit of magic and is really starting to stir the pot at the World Grand Prix, especially as a lot of the top names have already disappeared from the tournament.
His sorcery around the oche has finally returned and the double in, double out format suits the Aussie down to the ground and that’s why we believe Richard North will be put under his spell tonight at 1/3.
His favourite trick seems to be a 170 checkout and if you are looking for a bet as flamboyant as Whitlock than that can be conjured up at 14/1.
Mervyn King (+1.5) sets v Peter Wright to squeeze past – 5/4
We fancy Peter Wright to win here, but we reckon he’ll make a bigger meal of it than the time that snake tried to eat a crocodile.
So, Mervyn King (+1.5) sets at 6/5 might be where the value is found here.
Snakebite only seems to win games uglier than his hair these days, but we don’t think he’ll be bowing down to the King in this one.
