Michael Smith vs. James Wade – 19:40

Fresh off the favorite, the No.1 and reigning world champion, Smith will have a completely different kind of challenge to Wade, who has almost flown in the last four under the radar barely even playing his B game.

If Smith scores like he has, he will have every chance in the world to win comfortably. But everything is fine on the doubles, and Wade will sweep away all the crumbs.

It’s a showdown of contrasts and with that column in Wade’s corner, I can’t bet on Smith.

But looking at the 180s markets for every player shows something interesting.

Smith has 1/20 to hit the most highs (not the interesting thing) and his over 12.5 stat line speaks for itself.

But Wade has a line of just 6.5. I think that’s a big number, considering it’s almost unthinkable that we would see a 6-0 or 6-1 score in Wade’s favor.

Beating Mervyn King he scored four and given that we expect to see three or four more sets it’s a generous line that Wade clears, especially since we know he can easily put 10 points in. on his current tournament average of 86.

1pt – Wade 6.5 180s @ 5/6

Peter Wright vs. Gary Anderson – 9:30 p.m.

This all-Scottish two-pillar affair should be played in a good spirit and without any stupid crowd involvement (you can’t boo them both!), With these two able to score for the fun of it.

Wright showed all his credentials coming back from 3-1, 4-3 to Callan Rydz, which should serve him well here.

Anderson downplayed himself and downplayed his chances throughout the tournament, but a win would put him in his sixth world final, which is an insane number that really needs to be talked about more.

Another victory and he would be only the third man to win three PDC World Championships.

But Wright is a formidable opponent and with his greater consistency in doubling up and setting up shots, could (hopefully) have the advantage.

These two only made it to 19,180 in the quarterfinals and there’s a great price tag on offer with Paddy Power to keep the pair going a bit better and hitting 12 or more each. Other bookmakers will have similar lines, so go ahead if you want.

Wade and Wright’s brace up for grabs is currently around 7/2. If you want to get on the train with us, now is your last chance …

1pt – Wright & Anderson for hitting 12 or more 180s @ 11/4
