James Wade vs Michael Van Gerwen Betting Tips
With five points out of a possible six, Premier League favourite Michael van Gerwen looks like he means business and he'll be confident of adding two more points to his haul on Night Four.
James Wade v Michael van Gerwen Betting Odds
It's all about the Green Machine with Mighty Michael van Gerwen going off 8/15. James Wade, who was only summoned to play late on Sunday after Gerwyn Price failed a Covid test, has looked a little rusty and is still awaiting a first win. He's available at 9/2.
We haven't seen a drawn game since Night One but you can also have 5/1 on a 6-6 stalemate.
James Wade v Michael van Gerwen Head to Head
Wade does not have a particularly good record against MvG – in fact, of late it's been terrible. Since the 2016 Auckland Masters, they have met 25 times and the left-hander has won just two of those duels.
Wade has 16 wins against Van Gerwen in total, three in the Premier League. However, Mighty Mike has won 40 times in reply.
James Wade v Michael van Gerwen Prediction
Van Gerwen to win 7-4 - BET NOW
On the face of it, this looks like a pretty straightforward call. Van Gerwen appears to have his mojo back and after being held on Night One by Dimitri van den Bergh, the five-time champion has demolished both Peter Wright and Rob Cross and is averaging the best part of a ton.
Wade, in contrast, was a last-minute call-up and appears to be going the other way. He, too, drew his opener but has subsequently been seen off by both Cross and Aspinall, neither of whom had been much-fancied coming into the tournament.
The left-hander is getting fewer looks than most at doubles – just 33 attempts so far – which means his scoring isn't quite on it.
But in the back of your mind is the unquestioned knowledge that this redoubtable adversary for anyone was winning the UK Open just a few weeks back and can obdurately raise his game when least expected.
Van Gerwen's improvements suggest he'll come through but it's not a match price to go to war with. Maybe a correct score bet on 7-4 because the Englishman will not go down without a scrap.
Most 180s - Draw - BET NOW
The 180s matchbet is interesting. Neither man is prolific – eight each in three games – and that's been the same on the floor with Wade averaging a max every 4.7 legs, Van Gerwen one every 4.5. Which does bring the maximums tie into sight at a nice price.
