We may be well into the 2017 PDC World Darts Championship, but there are still a handful of long odds-on shots in the tournament.
So today we’re looking at one special in particular our traders have priced up, and it concerns two of the best players of all-time.
How does a 13/8 Quarter Final Dutch Double sound to you?
Michael van Gerwen & Raymond van Barneveld BOTH to win @ 13/8
The world number one will take to the oche first this evening, and he’s up against Daryl Gurney.
It’s safe to say the fans will be right behind MVG, too – but that’s all of Gurney’s own doing. He had several match darts yesterday against Mark Webster which he wasted, suggesting that the crowd were putting him off.
After Webby looked to have got himself back in the game, SuperChin turned to sarcastically applaud the audience. Suffice to say they didn’t respond well.
But back onto the darts – and at 1/33, there’s simply no point in backing Mighty Mike in the Match Betting on his own.
The Northern Irishman may have won this clash the last time the pair met, but this is a completely different stage now.
And one would think that even Michael van Gerwen on a bad day would have enough in his locker to beat Gurney over a potential nine sets.
Moving on to the second match of the session, where Van Barneveld and Phil Taylor will lock horns for the 77th time.
Granted, Taylor’s wins massively outweigh those of Barney, but it’s the Dutchman who’ll be feeling the more confident of the two players heading into this one after three stellar performances.
Though The Power has come through his opening three matches largely unscathed, he look rattled – and that should play into his opponent’s hand nicely.
It’s been 10 years since Barney last won this tournament, defeating Taylor 7-6 in a thrilling final. And he stands every chance of securing his 18th victory over the greatest player of all-time.
Fancy this as a double? We’ve enhanced it to 13/8!
