World Grand Prix Tips: Cross, Suljovic and Smith to edge through?
Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson and Daryl Gurney all prevailed on night one of the World Grand Prix in Dublin yesterday.
Can Rob Cross, Mensur Suljovic and Peter Wright all follow them through tonight? The trio’s matches feature among our five standout fixtures this evening.
Jermaine Wattimena v Mervyn King
The Dutchman has been in decent form of late and pushed James Wade all the way at the World Matchplay. He’s 11/4 to win 2-1 in a defeat which would see King exit in the first round in Dublin for the sixth time since 2010.
Peter Wright v Steve West
Underestimate 9/4 shot West at your peril. ‘Simply’ is one of the most underrated players on the circuit and has upset Wade and Phil Taylor here in the last two years.
He’ll need to put it all together if he’s to see off Wright, who reached the final of the Champions League last week. It’s 9/2 he wins 2-1 to dump the Scotsman out in round one for the fifth time.
Rob Cross v Steve Beaton
Mensur Suljovic v James Wade
Dublin hasn’t been kind to Wade in recent years. The Machine has gone out in the first round in each of his last three attempts. He must overcome a hugely in-form Suljovic this time around.
Michael Smith v Adrian Lewis
After landing the Shanghai Masters over the summer, Smith is odds-on at 8/11 to see off former two-time world champion Lewis.
Bully Boy also reached the final of the Premier League earlier in the year. He’s in much better form than his opponent and is 21/10 to string it all together and prevail as King of the Oche.
