NIGHT 16 PREDICTION
All eyes will be on the quarter-final showdown between Jonny Clayton – who currently occupies the final playoff spot – and Nathan Aspinall, who is the only other player who can take the Welshman’s place in the top four. Victory for Clayton would secure his berth at the O2 Arena, while Aspinall needs to reach the night final in order to progress. In terms of the overall night winner, Michael Smith has gone all the way in the last three nights and could even finish top of the table if he makes it four in a row, but we’re tipping current leader Gerwyn Price to re-assert himself ahead of next week’s playoffs.
PREDICTED NIGHT WINNER: GERWYN PRICE
