Michael van Gerwen v Daryl Gurney
Michael van Gerwen heads into the play-offs having topped the league table for the 7th successive season. Not only did he top the table, but he also averaged the most with 102.56 and had the best checkout ratio with 49%. As a result, this meant he finished with a leg differential of a huge +41. Despite only finishing four points behind, Daryl Gurney finished with just a +7-leg differential. This was due to his average in-comparison only being 97.75.
Gurney has actually won three of the last four meetings with MVG but he is the same price as the two league meetings which were a shorter format and in the Players Championship Final he was 5/1 to win a best of 21 legs match – this time around he is only 7/2 in a similar format in best of 19 legs.
In the two league defeats the Green Machine underperformed, averaging 95 and 98, whereas in their last meeting he averaged 102.6 and won 7-3. Over 19 legs his true ability should come to the fore and the most likely scenario is a 10-6 or better victory.
Rob Cross v James Wade
This is a rematch from last week where James Wade narrowly won 8-6. However, it wasn’t a high-quality contest with Cross only averaging 92.39 with 30% checkout success and Wade 94.4 also with 30% checkout percentage.
With the longer format, their long-term ability should be in evidence with Cross throwing a 99.25 tournament average compared to Wade’s 96.82. Given the odds are fairly similar to last week despite the increase in leg format, it’s Cross that should be favoured given the difference in ability.
Their only previous meeting over the same format Cross won 10-6.

The winner of each semi-final will then face off in the final. Given we think Cross will prevail form his semi with Wade, he’s be our pick in the outright. He’s currently available at 5.00 compared to 1.50 for MVG, and in a match-up, their odds would be much closer together.
