R. Van Barneveld vs Smith
Raymond van Barneveld v Michael Smith
Smith over 10.5 180's
Both players will be confident here with RvB taking out clear favourite van Gerwen in an epic battle last round and Smith taking a clean sweep against Benito van de Pas, it should be a tight game as RvB has the upper hand on finishing and can expect to hit numerous ton plus finishes while Smith struggles a bit in this category but you can't expect RvB to keep up with Smith's scoring. It should be a good battle and I can see it going to at least 8 sets maybe all the way to 9.
Smith hit 12 180's in 4 sets in the last round and is a frequent hitter of the top score, averaging 3 per set in the last round although this will be a tougher match to maintain his confidence throughout but with only 11 180's required an average of 3 every 2 sets should be enough if the match goes to 8 sets, which shouldn't be an issue for him. The mark here should be higher than 11 in my opinion and i'm confident enough to back it with full stake at odds of 1.909 with bet365.
