After two big winners last night, Wayne Mardle is back with his exclusive views on tonight's match between Dave Chisnall and Barney-slayer Keegan Brown...
"The best of 31 legs format is massively in Chisnall's favour, and Keegan will need to concentrate for longer than ever before, which he also may find difficult."
Dave Chisnall v Keegan Brown
Live on Sky Sports 1
To quote The Black Eyed Peas, 'I've got a feeling, that tonight's going to be a good night'!
Dave Chisnall will beat Keegan Brown. Now, obviously any outcome is technically possible, but for Keegan to climb a mountain again would take an incredible effort.
Brown beat Raymond van Barneveld black and blue in the last round. He was outstanding, his all round game was superb. But for him to reproduce that kind of performance is highly unlikely.
Chisnall has been going about his business - he lost to Adrian Lewis, but he'd already qualified for the knockout phase so the urgency and adrenaline may have gone. In the previous round he whooped Robbie Green, his double hitting was very good (47%), and in my opinion if he can repeat that stat he'll win this match.
Brown will be about for a long time, he has a great action along with a fantastic attitude but I feel this may be a step too far right now.
The best of 31 legs format is massively in Chisnall's favour, and Keegan will need to concentrate for longer than ever before, which he also may find difficult.
Back Dave Chisnall to win -1.5 legs at 1.84/5 or better
