It should be a walk in the park tonight for Michael van Gerwen and Wayne Mardle believes the Dutchman will want to impress the crowd and that a bullseye finish is worth backing...
"He loves showing off, the world's best player loves pleasing the audience with flashy shots, and Lennon being dictated to, so he has to finish on the bull."
Michael van Gerwen v Steve Lennon

I do like these quirky bets. This is a pearler. 6/4 is the price, hitting a bullseye finish is the objective.
MVG has had four darts at a bullseye finish so far, he's hit two. Lennon, incredibly hasn't had a dart at bullseye, YET, surely that will change during this encounter.
Michael should be dictating what Lennon has to go for, he should have his man needing to hit the bullseye on occasion.
I'm relying on two things happening in this match; Michael leaving and hitting the Big Fish (170) and the like (167, 164, 161). He loves showing off, the world's best player loves pleasing the audience with flashy shots, and Lennon being dictated to, so he has to finish on the bull.
The finishes that really fit this bet are your 81, 83, 84, and all those smallish three figure combinations.
I have stats, I have a Betfair account, and I have a fiver to bet with. I'll be on.
