World Grand Prix Betting: Wade v Dolan

The Machine can switch off for periods in matches

James Wade came into this World Grand Prix in a shocking vein of form. But he has once again shown just how talented a player he is by qualifying for his third semi-final of the year with wins against Steve Brown, Vincent van der Voort and Andy Smith.

Brendan Dolan, conversely, will be playing in his first ever major semi-final. The Irishman has already exceeded his wildest expectations this week and can play without pressure and with the support of the crowd this Saturday evening. It’s a potent combination if you are a Wade fan.

“My starting has been brilliant but I've a bit of work to do with my finishing if I'm going to go all the way,” contemplated Wade following his quarter-final win.

“But I've got to play Brendan Dolan - and the crowd - first on Saturday, which will be a great challenge.”

At odds of 5/1 the bookmakers aren’t giving Dolan a great chance of making his first ever major final. Those odds look about right given the gulf in experience at this stage of a tournament, and I do expect Wade will ultimately come out on top.

However, we’ve seen multiple times already this tournament that The Machine can switch off for periods in matches. He often needs to be reminded he’s in a game in order to produce his best darts. For that reason I think Dolan can at least take a few sets in this match and give his compatriots in the crowd something to shout about.
