Rob Cross v Michael van Gerwen (19:45)

Over 9.5 Legs @ 10/11
Michael van Gerwen - Under 98.5 average @ 10/11
Over 5.5 180s @ 1/1

Michael van Gerwen is suffering from a shoulder injury and we saw how that affected his game against Mensur Suljovic at the UK Open last weekend.

There's no doubt that when he has these issues, then it does affect his numbers - and I feel he is going to struggle to notch a three-dart average of 100 this week.

He will still play well, I am sure, but those issues can just take away those small percentages, and as a consequence of that, I feel there is value in the 10/11 on offer for 'MVG' to throw an average under 98.5.

Listen, a 96 or 97 average may still be enough to win the game, but I'd be surprised to see him hit the three-figure averages that we have now come to expect of him.

In terms of the match itself, it's another one that could go wither way - Rob Cross has been performing well, but had a real off day in his quarter-final in Minehead, but in terms of the Premier League he has been going well.

He will sense an opportunity if MVG is still nursing that troublesome shoulder, but you can never write the Dutchman off; he's proven that so many times!

This is another game that I feel will reach a tenth or even 11th leg, and the even-money on offer for over 5.5 180s has also caught my attention. Both players do like to switch, but when they find their rhythm, they don't half hammer home those maximums.
