Quarter-Final Match Betting and Predictions:   

Thursday, March 14th 

(Prices correct as of 5pm on March 11th)  

(7:15pm) 9/5 Peter Wright v Gerwyn Price 2/5 (PredictionGerwyn Price, Peter Wright narrowly lost out in a last-leg decider in Brighton last week to eventual runner-up Michael Smith, whilst Gerwyn Price was easily brushed aside on a 6-2 scoreline by eventual winner Luke Humphries, which was not the birthday present he would have been expecting. With both players performances at last weekend’s Belgian Darts Open, the third round defeat to Jonny Clayton by Peter Wright was bettered by Gerwyn Price losing out in the semi-finals to eventual runner-up Rob Cross and that points to a strong fancy for Gezzy Price in this game in my opinion) Correct Score Prediction – 3-6 

(8pm) 2/5 Luke Humphries v Michael Smith 19/10 (PredictionLuke Humphries, A repeat of the final last week in Brighton, which was won 6-3 by Luke Humphries with a fantastic 101 average, following up his 113.71 average produced against Rob Cross in the semi-finals. Michael Smith produced wins over Peter Wright and Luke Littler before losing to tonight’s opponent in a thrilling final. Taking all of this into consideration it’s a win for the World No.1 and World Champion Luke Humphries in this match for me.) Correct Score Prediction – 4-6  

(8:45pm) 11/10 Michael van Gerwen v Luke Littler 7/10 (PredictionLuke Littler, MVG lost his opening match 6-2 to Rob Cross in Brighton last week and also lost his opening match at the Belgian Darts Open to Peter Wright over the weekend, whereas his opponent Luke Littler was a beaten semi-finalist to Michael Smith in Brighton, before winning the Belgian Open last weekend and hitting a perfect 9-dart finish in a world class final against Rob Cross, which he won in a thrilling last-leg decider. On this basis, it’s difficult to see anything other than a win for Luke Littler in this contest.) Correct Score Prediction – 4-6  

(9:30pm) 11/20 Rob Cross v Nathan Aspinall 7/5 (PredictionRob Cross, Rob Cross is in really good form at the moment, he easily beat MVG 6-2 in Brighton last week before running into a world class Luke Humphries performance (113.71 average) in the semi-finals and only lost the Belgian Open Darts final in a last-leg decider to Luke Littler (who produced a 9-dart finish in that final) last weekend. Nathan Aspinall lost 6-3 in his opening match in Brighton last Thursday to Luke Littler and he also lost his opening match on a 6-3 scoreline to Richard Veenstra at last weekend’s Belgian Darts Masters. Taking all of this into account, it has to be a win for Rob Cross in this contest.) Correct Score Prediction – 6-3  

Outright Betting:

Michael van Gerwen 12/5 – Luke Littler 11/4 – Luke Humphries 3/1 – Michael Smith 9/1 – Gerwyn Price 10/1 – Rob Cross 10/1 – Nathan Aspinall 16/1 Peter Wright 66/1
