The PDC Darts World Championship reaches the semi-final stage on Monday evening at Alexandra Palace with Michael van Gerwen taking on Adrian Lewis standing out as the clear matchup that could produce darting fireworks and heroics.
Simon Whitlock and Peter Wright fill the places in the other semi-final after that side of the draw opened up massively when Phil Taylor was knocked out by Michael Smith in the second round.
But in truth, all eyes will be on the clash between the second and third seed.
There seems to be a feeling that whoever comes through this titanic clash will end up as the champion as the odds are hugely stacked in their favour of seeing off either Whitlock of Wright on New Year’s Day.
Van Gerwen remained on course for a second successive final appearance after a 5-3 quarter-final victory over Mark Webster while Lewis eased past James Wade 5-1 in a match where he didn’t even have to break sweat as the Machine was woeful with his doubles and never landed a blow.
The Premier League winner was averaging a mind boggling 115.6 against Webster in the first three sets as he raced into a 3-0 but stalled hugely in the latter stages, allowing the Welshman back into the game.
Luckily for Mighty Mike even though his scoring dropped considerably, his finishing stats stayed strong and that will be a worry for anyone chancing Lewis at 11/10 this evening.
That is the time to take on Van Gerwen, when his doubles go astray as he is always likely to score powerfully at important times in the match.
With his finishing being so assured, there is every reason to go feet first into the 5/6 on offer from the bookmakers for a Mighty Mike victory.
Lewis has cruised through the tournament so far but it all might have been too easy for the two times World Champion who hasn’t had to find his A-Game yet. The Dutchman is likely to catch him cold, especially if Lewis continues to struggle on his doubles.
Wright and Whitlock is very tough to call from an outright betting perspective as both players had very tough five set matches in the quarter finals and they may be suffering a bit of fatigue coming into the game.
The winner will probably be the player that plays the board rather than the occasion and with experience on his side, we’re just favouring Whitlock at 8/11.
