World Grand Prix Betting: Taylor v Webster

Taylor has a respect for Webby

Mark Webster’ quarter-final defeat of Phil Taylor at the 2011 PDC World Championships led many to eulogise about the career of The Power. His darting obituary was being prepared.

Nine months on and Taylor is every bit the darting mega-force that he has been for the past two decades. Paul Nicholson’s attempts to ruffle the 15-time World Champion’s feathers only served to focus his tungsten on its target. The Asset won just three legs as Taylor cruised to a 3-0 win.

This quarter-final match up against Webster won’t have the same hype attributed to it in the build up, but it should be a much tighter affair. Taylor has a respect for Webby; the Welshman has beaten him at a World Championship and also has a Lakeside world championship to his name. He is also playing some of the best darts we have seen him thrown on TV since the World Championships.

Peter Wright showed in the first round that Taylor can be rattled, but only by hitting the big numbers and the important doubles. Both Snakebite and Nicholson had their chances – Taylor missed his opening three darts at a double on multiple occasions in both matches – but neither could convert them into a win. Webster, on the form he has shown so far this week, looks in a better position to do so. Back Wales’ number one to get at least two sets on the board at betting odds of Evens.

Another bet worth considering is the 10/11 that Bet365 are offering on Under 7.5 maximums being hit in the match. Both players have a tendency – Webster more so than Taylor – to attack the treble 19 rather than the 20 at times and that was reflected in their cumulative haul of just three 180s in their second round matches.
