WELL, those of you who read my tournament preview will be clutching your lucky tickets and crossing your fingers for the dream Wade v Wright final, just like I will be.

But whatever combination of players end up making the final, will ensure that it is a belter. Onto the Semi-Finals we go…

Michael Smith v James Wade – 19:40

Fresh from dumping out the favourite, World #1 and reigning champion, Smith will have a completely different kind of challenge in Wade, who has almost flown into the last four under the radar playing hardly even his B game.

If Smith scores the way he has been, he will get every chance in the world to win comfortably. But any mucking around on the doubles, and Wade will swipe all the crumbs.

It’s a matchup of contrasts and with this column being in Wade’s corner, I can’t go for any kind of bet on Smith.

But looking at the 180s markets for each player shows something interesting.

Smith is 1/20 to hit the most maximums (that’s not the interesting thing) and his stat line of over 12.5 speaks for itself.

But Wade has a line of just 6.5. I think that’s a great number, considering that it’s almost unthinkable that we’ll see a 6-0 or 6-1 scoreline in favour of Wade.

When beating Mervyn King he notched up four and considering we expect to see three or four more sets, it’s a generous line that I think Wade clears, especially as we know that he can easily put 10 points on his current tournament average of 86.

1pt – Wade over 6.5 180s @ 5/6


Peter Wright v Gary Anderson – 21:30

This all-Scottish affair between two stalwarts should be played in a great spirit and without any stupid involvement from the crowd (You can’t boo them both!), with these two able to power score for fun.

Wright showed all of his credentials in coming back from 3-1 and 4-3 down to Callan Rydz, which should stand him in good stead here.

Anderson has been downplaying himself and his chances all tournament but a win would put him into his sixth World Final, which is an insane number which really should be talked about more.

One further win and he would be just the third man to win three PDC World Championships.

But Wright is a formidable opponent and with his greater consistency on doubling and set up shots, could (hopefully) have the edge.

These two hit just the 19 180s in the Quarter Finals and there’s a great price on offer with Paddy Power for the pair to go slightly better and hit 12 or more each. Other bookies will have similar lines so go on the lookout if you wish.

The double of Wade and Wright to win is currently around 7/2. If you want to hop on the train with us, now is your last chance…

1pt – Wright & Anderson to hit 12 or more 180s @ 11/4
