Wayne's back and giving his exclusive opinion on the Grand Slam of Darts, and tonight he feels that the 180s market is the best way to go...
"Mervyn is unlikely to rattle in double figures but what you can rely on is him hitting at least four big ones, and that might be enough to out-max Anderson."
I think I've found some value in the 180 markets tonight rather than match betting; and I've already had a winner in this market, when Vincent Van Der Voort hit more maximums than Robbie Green at a price of 2.915/8. Read on...
Michael Smith is, in my opinion, a certainty to beat Christian Kist on the maximums tonight. Yes, Kist hits them as well, but his barrels are a lot bigger than most, and bigger barrels are not conducive to hitting the biggest score of all. That's just a fact.
And if you need further convincing, Kist has managed just four maximums so far in 19 legs played, compared to Bully Boy who's hit eight in 22 legs.
The pace will suit both players so expect a few trebles to be hit.
Back Michael Smith to hit the most 180s at 1.84/5
Please don't think I've gone mad, but I think it's possible for Mervyn to hit more 180s than Anderson. Here's why I'm going to back The King:
Mervyn is unlikely to rattle in double figures but what you can rely on is him hitting at least four big ones, and that might be enough to out-max Anderson.
Gary blows hot and cold when it comes to maximum hitting, his scoring rarely goes off but his 180 scores can be replaced with umpteen one hundred and forties, which is great for us looking to back King in the maximums market.
The overriding factor here for me is that the price of 3.711/4 is miles too big, Gary is 4/9 and that's way off, he should IMO be 4/7.
Gary has hit seven 180s to Mervyn's five, but Merv's form was way off against O'Shea and Wade, and Gary came up dry in the 180 column against Bunting in their group match.
Back Mervyn King to hit the most 180s at 3.711/4
