World Grand Prix Betting: Wade v Smith

Smith is no stranger to playing the bored darting genius

James Wade does just enough to win a darts match and no more. He often looks bored on stage, indeed it took a 2-0 deficit to Vincent van der Voort to awaken Wade from his slumber in their round 2 match. Fair or not this is how it appears. He averaged 79.86 in his first round match against Steve Brown, giving the illusion that perhaps Brown could have challenged him. But it is just an illusion; Brown won 1 leg the whole match. Wade was entirely in control, bored, but in control.

Andy ‘Pie Man’ Smith is no stranger to playing the bored darting genius who can barely rouse himself to throw a dart; he defeated Raymond Van Barneveld 3-1 in their second round match. Smith himself was anything but bored; he was straining every sinew to defeat a much more talented, but less interested, player.

The Wade vs. Smith quarter has the air of the sequel to Barney vs. Pie Man, the difference is Wade can be stirred from his boredom. Challenge him, throw your best darts, and get a lead on the Machine and he will remember he loves winning games of darts. It may be that Wade must feel the possibility of loss before he can win. Either way this match won’t be a whitewash. James Wade, the perennial slow starter, will let the Pie Man have a chuck.
