THE PREDICTION

Both players sit outside the playoff places heading into the reverse fixtures but it is two-time Premier League champion Gary Anderson who is in the greater need of points as he sits bottom of the remaining participants. However, a good start to the week would put him right back in the mix given the tightly-packed nature of the table and he will draw upon his first fixture with De Sousa last month, during which he hit 50% of his doubles in a 7-5 win. The Portuguese debutant, though, was a Players Championship winner a couple of weeks ago and is playing with plenty of confidence right now. He has hit a tournament-high 50 180s so far – an average of 5.5 per match – so backing him to score over 4.5 maximums looks a reasonable bet in this one.
