Expect MVG to produce the goods in a tight game against Chizzy

Wayne Mardle's frustrating week continued when he came within one leg of a big price correct score last night, but there was plenty of opportunity to lock in profits, something our man will be hoping to do tonight when the world champion is in action...

"Chizzy, for whatever reason, doesn't normally win tight affairs, while Michael is a master at crossing the line and getting the job done."

Back Van Gerwen to win 16-12 @ 9.89/1

Michael van Gerwen v Dave Chisnall
19:15, live on Sky Sports 1
 

Is it just me that thinks Chizzy is looking likely on the doubles or is he actually improving on what used to be a slight problem? He's been very efficient on them all week and that bodes well for Dave. If he does hit his doubles in this match then he could push The Green Machine all the way.

There are a few traits in each player though that you have to take into consideration here. Chizzy, for whatever reason, doesn't normally win tight affairs, while Michael is a master at crossing the line and getting the job done - he inevitably pulls out a fantastic final few legs when they're needed.

I can see this match being close for a long way, before Michael shows that little bit more composure, pushes on, and doing what we've just said, crossing the line and booking a place in the semi-finals for the second year in succession.

With the markets just starting to gain liquidity at the time of writing it's hard to know what price you'll get about Chizzy on the +4.5 Legs Handicap, so instead back the 16-12 and 16-13 Correct Scores in the Dutchman's favour.
