Nicholson v Suljovic: Maximums to flow

take a chance on there being more than 6.5 maximums

Mensur Suljovic caused the shock of the tournament last year when he beat James Wade 4-2 in the second round of the tournament, unfortunately for him that win may be to his detriment 12 months on.

Having beaten last year’s number two seed, Paul Nicholson will know that he cannot take his opponent lightly here. Not that he would have done anyway. Nicholson is a student of the game and learns something, whether in defeat or victory, every time that he goes up onto the stage.

The Asset will have been disappointed by his early exit at Doncaster last weekend, but we shouldn’t read too much into that. Like many of his contemporaries towards the top of the rankings, attentions were firmly focussed on the big one.

Similarly to many of the international qualifiers Suljovic plays the majority of his competitive darts in the continental Players Championship events. His best result since last year’s Ally Pally venture was a single quarter-final appearance in his home country.

In short, there is a huge gulf in class between these two. But, as we’ve seen numerous times already this tournament, there are no easy matches. A 3-0 win for the Aussie-Geordie is available to back at odds of 13/8 with Stan James, but is probably worth avoiding.

Instead, take a chance on there being more than 6.5 maximums in the match at the Evens that William Hill are offering. Both players are capable of hitting the big numbers and if Suljovic can knick a set we should pass this threshold fairly comfortably.
