THE PREDICTION

Dirk van Duijvenbode’s remarkable run at the 2020 World Grand Prix continued with a comprehensive 4-1 victory against Simon Whitlock on Sunday evening and he is now just one win away from becoming a major champion. The Dutchman was a 200/1 outsider at the start of the tournament but he has produced a string of upsets against four top-quality players to unexpectedly reach the final here in Coventry. Seeing Gerwyn Price in the final is no such shock, as the Iceman had won three out of the last four tournaments heading into this event - which included a triumph at the World Series of Darts Finals. Price starts as a strong favourite to win this match, and rightly so given his pedigree, the double start format makes things a little more unpredictable and Van Duijvenbode has certainly shown enough to suggest that he can’t be ruled out of producing another upset. It’s unknown how the Dutchman will fare in the biggest match of his career though, and he is also up against an opponent that he has lost to in each of their ten previous meetings. Price has risen to the occasion in major tournament finals before and this experience could be the crucial factor in the final outcome. The odds on Price are very short and this is no ordinary tournament due to the unique format, even if Van Duijvenbode does not produce another shock win he may well push Price all the way and Van Duijvenbode with a +2.5 handicap could be a good option to take if you are having a bet.
