World Grand Prix Betting: Whitlock v Jenkins

when you examine last week's Championship League form a favourite begins to emerge

Simon Whitlock and Terry Jenkins face off in what could be billed, perhaps unkindly, as a clash of the nearly men. Neither player has won a major despite, between them, having reached 6 major finals and countless semi-finals. Both men are Premier League stalwarts and have reached the point of their careers when they need to put up or shut up.

With so much in common it is difficult to be confident of a winner. Whitlock and Jenkins both lost in Saturday’s Dublin Players Championships in the third round to Steve farmer and Phil Taylor respectively, and in Sunday’s third round to Nigel Heydon and Mark Webster respectively. The third round is about par for players of this calibre. On both occasions Jenkins lost to superior opponents, but what he may have done with a kinder draw is up for debate.

It is when you examine last week’s Championship League form that a favourite begins to emerge. Jenkins played one day of Championship League darts and of his 7 matches he lost 7 games. All of them, including a 6-1 mauling to Whitlock. Whitlock played 21 Championship League games last week and won 14 of them including victories over Phil Taylor, Mark Webster and Adrian Lewis. His winning percentage was 67% compared to Terry Jenkins’ 0%.

Whitlock’s finishing proficiency mean this format (start and finish on a double) is potentially even more difficult for Jenkins. For two players who couldn’t be separated; delving a little deeper paints a worrying picture for Jenkins.
