THE PREDICTION

It feels like it is two steps forward, one step back for Michael van Gerwen these days as the Dutchman, after averaging 107.58 in a win over Rob Cross on Wednesday, followed that up with a disappointing defeat to James Wade where he averaged under 91. The consistency just isn’t there for the five-time Premier League champion, which make his matches difficult to predict, and he faces an opponent here who has developed an impressive habit of grinding out results. On Thursday evening, Aspinall defied a nine-darter and a record-equalling 11 180s from Jose de Sousa to earn a 6-6 draw and that resilience will stand him in good stead here. His confidence will be high and he looks good value to secure a win or draw in the Double Chance market.
