Wayne Mardle: King to reign over the home favourite

Mervyn King is fancied to make the final

We're down to the final four in Dublin and Wayne Mardle fancies the two favourites to make it through - here's why...

"Mervyn hates losing more than anyone and he loves to keep a partisan crowd quiet and tonight I think he will do just that."

Back Mervyn King to win 5-2 and 5-3

It's semi-final night in Dublin and with only four players left in the World Grand Prix it should be easier to pick a winner.

And I think it is.

The first semi-final is between Michael van Gerwen and Wes Newton.

Wes hasn't played well at all this week but he's still in and has a chance to win the event. That's how good he is.
But, in Van Gerwen, you have in my opinion the most natural talent in darts ever.
I think Michael will win, and with Newton on side in the winner market, a bet on the Dutchman is something of a must.

The second semi is a battle between Mervyn King, an antepost tip on these pages at 70.069/1, and last year's finalist Brendan Dolan.

Mervyn hates losing more than anyone and he loves to keep a partisan crowd quiet and tonight I think he will do just that.

Rather than taking the 1.528/15 on the match odds, I'm going to back King to win on the correct score market - 5-2 and 5-3.
