The opening quarter-final of the night will see the reigning world champion and the seven-time Premier League winner collide in a blockbuster showdown!

MVG has won his last nine Premier League matches in succession and Luke Humphries is showing signs that he is really starting to hit form too - despite only winning a couple of matches so far, he currently boasts the highest three-dart average of any player in this year's competition, so it's surely just a matter of time until he starts racking up the points.

I think this is a tough game to call, and my feeling is that we will see another close encounter, with the match going 6-4 or 6-5 either way. So on the back of that I like the 5/6 on offer for the match to extend beyond 9.5 legs, whilst I am expecting the pair to come out strong and both hold their throw during the initial exchanges, so the match to be 2-2 after four legs carries appeal too.

I've already mentioned that I see this going ten legs or more, and because of that, I would be very surprised if that treble 20 bed wasn't being battered in the opening match of the night.

I know MVG switches to the 19 quite regularly but he has hit more maximums than any other player across the opening four weeks, and if he maintains that, and Humphries chips in with a few too - which he always does - then I think Over 6.5 landing at 5/6 provides plenty of value.
