It's been an up and down week for Wayne Mardle on the tipping front but he believes has has found some odds-against value in the Friday action...

"I think Durrant is a superior grouper of the dart than Wright. Glen follows the previous dart / darts superbly well, he clatters into them, it makes the target bigger, like a backstop."

Glen Durrant v Peter Wright
Friday, 19:15
Live on Sky Sports

I'm staying away from the match winners tonight, I don't think the prices are attractive enough. Instead, I'm looking at the 180 markets and I think I've found a bet in the opening match of the evening.

Glen 'Duzza' Durrant has hit 13 maximums in 42 legs, that's a 180 every 3.4 legs. In contrast, Peter Wright has hit nine in 35, a 180 every 3.8 legs. When theses two met in the group stage, Glen won the maximums battle 3-2.

So there's really not a lot in it at all and I would have been expecting the pair to have been similar odds to win the maximum battle, but they're not.

Durrant is 6/4, Wright 8/11 with the the draw 7/1. Lovely!

Peter, meawhile, is more of a placer, he'll work along a line, or up and down the bed.

The odds of 6/4 are my best bet for Friday. C'mon Glen, hit those trebles pal!
