LAST MEETING

THE LOWDOWN

MICHAEL SMITH

  • Michael Smith was comfortable in his group as he won all three games although he has yet to really hit the heights that he is capable of.

  • Bully Boy has been on the wrong end of some heavy beatings by Van Gerwen in the past but he has beaten the Dutchman on two occasions in 2018.

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN

  • Van Gerwen has been his usual self in this tournament with high averages although he will be annoyed to have finished second in his group.

  • The Dutchman's tournament average of 105.83 shows he is in the sort of form that could see him win this trophy for the fourth straight year.

THE PREDICTION

These two are destined to serve up a quick-fire, high-scoring affair but more often than not it is Van Gerwen who comes out on top. If Smith plays to his fluent best then he is one of the few players capable of matching the Dutchman, but Van Gerwen is more consistent and looks good for the win.
