Wayne Mardle returns to give his verdict on the clash between Michael Van Gerwen and Rob Cross on Saturday night...
Michael Van Gerwen v Rob Cross
Live on Sky Sports Action
I'm liking the price, so therefore I'm fancying our chances. The bet will be on Rob Cross to have the Highest Checkout at 11/8 on the Betfair Sportsbook. Let me explain why the odds are favourable to us.
In the last three meetings between the pair, Rob Cross has had the highest finish on each occasion. Take your mind back to the group stage between the two just six days ago... if you recall correctly, you'll notice that Rob Cross hit the maximum finish of 170. In those recent meetings, Cross also had finishes of 114, 120, 101.
The odds of 11/8 are incorrect, they suggest Rob Cross will have the highest finish 42 percent of the time, in the last three matches against Michael Van Gerwen he's had the highest finish 100 percent of the time.
I rest my case your honour.
