Luke Littler v Michael Smith (20:45)

Over 10.5 Legs @ 11/4
Michael Smith - Over 96.5 Average @ 8/11
Over 7.5 180s @ 11/8

Expect fireworks between these two on Thursday night!

They produced an absolute barnstormer in Cardiff a few weeks ago, and I am backing them to serve up another treat in Exeter this Thursday too.

They are both huge scorers, so there will be maximums galore - eight or more is priced at 11/8, which I really like the look of. Obscene numbers I know, especially in a best-of-11, but these are rhythm players and they will feed off of each other.

Luke Littler and Michael Smith are throwing exceptionally well at the minute, and as was the case on night two, I am expecting to see the full 11 legs this time around too, which is priced at 11/4.

'Bully Boy' will love the pace of this match; he struggles when things get a little slow and laborious, but this will suit him down to the ground, as was proven the last time they both met.

Smith is going to have to be at the races to make it two successive wins over Littler, and he knows his average will have to be far in excess of 96.5 if he is to win this match.

He's 8/11 to register an average over that figure and, again, that, to me, represents really good value.
