Michael van Gerwen was in fine form both during and after his quarter-final win over Nathan Aspinall this evening and he remains the favourite to win this title for a third time in his career at 15/8 with Dimitri Van den Bergh now just behind him at 5/2 after dumping out the reigning and defending champion Peter Wright last night.
World Cup partners collide
Danny Noppert eased past Daryl Gurney to book his place in the quarter-final of the World Matchplay for the first time in his career. He is playing some really impressive darts at the moment and while he said his treble 20s deserted him slightly in that match, his finishing was something he was certainly able to rely on as he hit four ton plus finishes.
We also saw a bit of personality in the Dutchman's performance as he threw in a no look maximum in reply to Gurney's attempt moments before.
His opponent tonight is also playing at this stage of the Matchplay for the first time in his career. Dirk van Duijvenbode took out the big fish in his victory over Michael Smith.
You can back four or more 100+ checkouts and both players to hit eight or more 180s at 6/4.
Dirk van Duijvenbode to have the most 180s and hit the highest checkout also looks appealing at 15/8.
Price and Jose finding their best form
The fourth and final quarter-final of this year's World Matchplay sees two players who came into this event searching for their best, battle it out for a place in the final four.
Jose de Sousa may have started a new trend after winning his second round match with pen marks down his throwing arm, he averaged over 103 in his convincing victory over Rob Cross with 48% on the outer ring.
Clearly emotional after pinning the winning double, Portugal's number one said this victory was hugely significant for him in the context of his year so far. He has been perplexed and frustrated by his form over recent months and hadn't been able to work out why his scoring had deserted him.
As for Price, he's cut a frustrated figure up on that Winter Gardens at times this week but has certainly rediscovered the ability to grind out results even when not at his scintillating best.
He admitted after his victory over Dave Chisnall that while he'd rather be constantly hitting big scores and finding the treble 20 bed more frequently, he is pleased that he can rely on the big ton plus finishes to get him out of trouble - he took out three finishes over 100 on the bull in that second round match.
You can get odds of 6/4 for two or more bull finishes in this quarter-final match.
The other bet that stands out in this one is The Special One to average over 95.5 at 5/6.
