Michael Smith v Michael van Gerwen betting prediction, tips & start time

Michael Smith v Michael van Gerwen (19:45)

Over 9.5 Legs @ 5/6
Michael Smith - Most 180s @ 5/6
Bull Finish In Any Leg @ 13/8

Michael Smith made a final again last week and is playing fairly solid. Michael van Gerwen is not at his best but when he is, he produces good results.

I can see this going at least 10 legs. I think MvG's form will come back sooner or later; he's too good for it not to come back anytime soon.

I am backing Smith to hit the most 180s of the pair. We know MvG likes the 171 and when Smith is on his groove, he hits 180s and I can see him getting more than the other Michael.

Both of these players are very good on the bullseye and it could come down to a 121 or 124 finish, so I fancy a bull finish in any leg.
