World Grand Prix Betting: Hylton v Burnett

I'll enjoy my view from the fence

Apparently darts do do fairy tales. Just nobody told me. How rude of them. Richie Burnett owed a little debt of gratitude to good fortune following his first round win over Gary Anderson where the Scotsman missed darts to win the match. But there was nothing fortunate about his second round win over Denis Ovens.

The 1995 Lakeside Champion lost the opening set but came back with a total of five 180s and a three-dart average of 88.36 to win the match 3-1. He hit 44% of his starting doubles – the best percentage of the night – and 46% of his finishing doubles to remind us all just why he was once such a dominant force in the game.

His quarter-final opponent has had a similar passage through to the last eight of the World Grand Prix. Mark Hylton has beaten one of the tournament favourites in Simon Whitlock and also came from a set down to win 3-1 in round two. This quarter-final match is another battle of the underdogs; one of them will take up a spot in the semi-final of a PDC major for the first time in their career.

Who wins looks a tricky one to call, and that’s reflected in the Match Odds betting where both players are priced around the Even money mark. If pushed I’d probably fall on the side of Burnett but I’ll enjoy my view from the fence for this one thanks.

I will, however, have a nice chunk of the 10/11 that Sky Bet are offering on there being more than 8.5 180s in the match. Both players hit five maximums in their second round match and given this one has the potential to go all the way to a seventh set there should be plenty of opportunities to ‘pepper the lipstick’.
