World Grand Prix Darts Ante-Post Tips & Preview
The 2019 World Grand Prix is a matter of days away and the tournament appears wide open. In needing to reach on a start the leg the special structure of the major has lent itself to lots of upsets over the years. This means there is a shock or two early on.
There are so many players playing with some darts that are brilliant and youre able to create a case for a slew of the names in the championship. The fact youll be able to find Michael Van Gerwen at 15/8 is telling of his kind just it is and lately. All of say of course MVG went to win and we may return at the close of the week, he is the best player on the planet. However, with brief games at the start and the arrangement, I would consider a few at prices.
Looking at the attraction, there is no half of it. Having said that, but the bottom half is certainly tougher. There are some tasty looking first round games, such as Rob Cross v Mensur Suljovic and Gerwyn Price v Dave Chisnall. Chizzy got to the Gibraltar Darts Trophy final, missing out into Krzysztof Ratajski who finds himself within this aspect of the attraction last week. A nine darter was hit by chisnall and it seems like his new darts are actually helping him. Me would worry, although before the attraction, I liked the look of Cost, who is just getting better. In actuality, I am not backing any bets for the championship.
Rather, I am looking at the best half of the attraction for my own choices. Yes, Michael Van Gerwen is in this half but he is beatable. You never know in the Grand Prix although he really needs to undergo his first two matches. He could face fellow countryman Jeffery p Zwaan in the next round that he famously beat him. Whoever makes it through this quarter I hope to confront my very first choice JAMES WADE (best price 25-1).
This championship is obviously loved by the two way Grand Prix winner. Needing to begin on a dual suits Wade given his impeccable record. Its a clich?? however he is a clutch player. He will sneak legs from nowhere. Since the birth of the son he appears to have become much more relaxed. His return to the Premier League saw him end in third position before losing to Rob Cross from the semi-final.
He reached two semi-finals in the Matchplay and New Zealand Masters. Then he followed this up with his PDC title of the year a month. He arrives in Dublin in form and with many happy memories here. With a decent draw I guess Wade is slightly on the side at 25/1. As MVG well understands following his jolt 2017 exit to the Scotsman, his game against John Henderson is going to not be a pushover. I can see the Machine if Wade can get past that having some momentum .
My second bet is MICHAEL SMITH (best cost 22-1). Surely that major is just round the corner? He keeps knocking on the door at events that are large and you would think that he will go of the way earlier or later. It was yet another run at a big for the Bully Boy although he had been unlucky against Cross. He had some disappointing early exits from the Players Championship at Barnsley last month which may be a factor behind his cost. This doesnt worry me as Smith seems to devote a run in the events.
His ability is simply magnificent and he can beat anyone, when he could land his doubles. He could be his own worst enemy at times and can be a frustrating player to view. He works himself up a lot over missed chances that he carries to the leg as opposed to just forgetting about it. Hes a pleasure to see when hes on song however.
He has a favourable quarter of the draw. Obviously no games are simple but a player of Smiths calibre must get either and then beyond Simon Whitlock Joe Cullen or even Ian White. I imagine he is more determined than ever to win that major he deserves. He has all the talent in the world and I do not doubt hell go on to win majors in his profession. This week provides a perfect opportunity to get off the mark.
