World Grand Prix Betting: Wade v Van der Voort

There were glimpses of what he is capable of in his match against Painter

James Wade came into this tournament in worrying form. But he was handed an ideal first round loosener by a below-par Steve Brown and will be hoping that he can grow now into the tournament.

Meanwhile, Vincent van der Voort ended his World Grand Prix hoodoo, winning through to the second round of the tournament at the fifth time of asking. He was also rarely troubled in his opener as Kevin Painter’s doubling meant the Dutchman was never put under any significant pressure.

The head-to-head record between these two players is stacked heavily in favour of Wade. The world number three has won 10 of their 12 meetings and all of their last nine. Therefore, it comes as little surprise to see The Machine made the strong 1/3 betting favourite.

Yet the value bet has to be in backing Van der Voort at odds of 5/2. The Dutchman’s form had tapered off in recent months due to a troubling back problem, but has recently undergone some physiotherapy treatment and it seems to be doing the trick.

Runs to the quarterfinals of both the Dublin Players Championships at the weekend were backed up by glimpses of what he is capable of in his match against Painter. He’ll need to show a little more consistency on the doubles to get the better of Wade, but then again the defending champion has looked far from being a pillar of consistency of late.
