Anderson should have enough to edge out Bunting

Dave Chisnall did the business for Wayne Mardle last night, but the double was let down by Raymond van Barneveld as the Dutchman lost to Simon Whitlock. Turning attention to tonight's action where our man likes the look of Gary Anderson...

"I think the Flying Scotsman will win this because he can put on a burst of brilliance that could take him clear. Stephen also has the ability to run riot but sometimes goes through spells of mediocrity."

Bunting did a professional job on Peter Wright in the first round, while Gary dug deep to overcome a resilient Jamie Caven. 

Both players in this match will feel they have the game to dish out punishment to the other - the two of them score well and in recent times both have been finishing well; Anderson's double hitting in particular has improved a lot. 

I think the Flying Scotsman will win this because he can put on a burst of brilliance that could take him clear. Stephen also has the ability to run riot but sometimes goes through spells of mediocrity. 

It'll be tight to a point then Gary will make a run for the finish line. He is a tad short in the match odds market at around 1.68/13, so you could look to back him on the -2.5 game handicap at around 2.111/10, but let's go for a bigger price in the Correct Score market, by dutching 13-9 and 13-10, which gives you combined odds of around 5.04/1.

Back Gary Anderson to win 13-9 at 9.617/2 and 13-10 at 9.08/1
