MVG and Lewis 2/1 to reach Semis at the Ally Pally

The PDC World Championship gets underway at the Alexandra Palace on Friday and Phil Taylor is odds-on to claim his 17th world title.

After a dip in form Michael van Gerwen bounced back from 3 legs down to overcome The Power in the Players Championship earlier this month and is best-priced 4/1 (Sporting Bet) to claim his first PDC world title.

Two-time winner Adrian Lewis is as big as 6/1 with Bet Victor to complete a hat-trick of titles and whilst the winner will almost certainly come from these three, choosing a winner will be tough and so we’ll be delving a little deeper into the markets to try and find some value.

One market in which we’ve jad some joy in the past is the ‘To win Quarter’ betting and we particularly like the look of Lewis (4/6) and MVG (4/5Sporting Bet) to with their respective Quarters.

Lewis will need to see off James Wade, a player who he has struggled against over the years, but given the 2 players’ form coming into this event you would have to fancy the Stokie to come out on top should they meet.

Van Gerwen’s Quarter looks a little tougher on paper as he will need to overcome the likes of fellow Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld as well as Chisnall & Anderson. That said he is a cut above the aforementioned trio and has to be backed at the 4/5. If you fancy the double you can get around 2/1, which looks about the best pre-touranament value bet around in our opinion.

The 2nd Quarter looks the most open of the lot but we like the look of Andy Hamilton at 4/1 (SkyBet) to progress to the Semi-Finals. The Hammer is pitched against Simon Whitlock, to who is has lost his last 3 meetings with, but tends to perform on the big stage with the fans behind him, and there is no bigger stage than the Ally Pally!

In some of the other markets We’re backing Adrian Lewis to score the most 180’s in the tournament. This looks a two-way shootout between Jackpot and van Gerwen, but Lewis has been scoring for fun over the last 6 months its hard to take him on.

Selections:
To win 2nd Quarter – Hamilton – 4/1 (SkyBet)
To win 3rd Quarter – Van Gerwen – 4/5 (Sporting Bet)
To win 4th Quarter – Lewis – 4/6 (Sporting Bet)
Most 180’s – Lewis – 21/10 (Paddy Power)
