MICHAEL SMITH v NATHAN ASPINALL
Smith to win the match and hit the most 180s, Aspinall highest checkout
Smith looks a solid favourite for this first semi-final, having dropped just five sets in four matches.
He’s also bound to boss it on the 180s, racking up 34 compared to Aspinall’s 26, despite playing five fewer sets.
If you want to a bit more value, though, then it could be worth backing the underdog to hit the highest checkout.
Aspinall has taken out six finishes of 120 or more so far this tournament, which is twice as many as Bully Boy.
MICHAEL VAN GERWEN v GARY ANDERSON
Under 12.5 Van Gerwen 180s
We’re three from three in this market, so why stop now?
MVG only threw five 180s against Ryan Joyce in the previous round, and is yet to throw more than six in a single match.
Overall, he’s averaging a maximum every 1.1 sets so, at that rate, he’ll need this to go the distance to have any chance of overhauling this mark.
Over 13.5 Anderson 180s
Anderson, on the other hand, is finding the lipstick with ease.
He hit 12 maximums in seven sets against Dave Chisnall and 13 in the same number against Chris Dobey.
In this first-to-six format, he should surely get more than enough legs to go one better.
