Stephen Bunting To Make Life Difficult For Peter Wright At The World Grand Prix

The World Grand Prix Darts betting market has undergone a whole host of changes following the opening night of action in Dublin on Sunday. Gary Anderson withdrew from the tournament and Michael van Gerwen suffered a shock first round defeat at the hands of John Henderson, leaving Peter Wright as the bookmakers' favourite ahead of his first match on Monday evening.

We take a look ahead to a couple of Monday's match for our 'double' and Wright might find life difficult in his clash with Stephen Bunting, while Michael Smith is a good bet to enhance an impressive head-to-head record against Gerwyn Price...

Tips: Michael Smith to beat GerwynPrice
@ 8 / 13  
Stephen Bunting to cover +1.5 legs v Peter Wright
@ 1 / 1  
Double Pays: @ 9 / 4  

Monday 2nd October, 9.30pm - Michael Smith v Gerwyn Price

Michael Smith reached the last-sixteen at the World Grand Prix in 2015 and he will be confident of at least equalling that effort this year as he prepares for his opening match with Gerwyn Price. Smith holds a 9-2 winning record in head-to-head meetings with the Welshman, winning each of the last seven in a row, and he did beat Price at the World Grand Prix in 2015.

Price has been knocked out at the first round stage in each of his two previous visits to Dublin and it is Smith who is a worthy favourite at a nice price here.
Tip #1: Michael Smith to beat Gerwyn Price @ 8/13 with Boylesports.

Monday 2nd October, 10.30pm - Peter Wright v Stephen Bunting

Peter Wright is a man in form as he has won ten titles this year and he has won nine of his last ten clashes with Stephen Bunting, including each of the last seven on the trot. However, Wright has a poor record in the World Grand Prix tournament as he has reached the second round only once in five attempts, which includes a defeat to Bunting at this event in 2014.

Bunting went on to reach the semi-finals three years ago and while recent history would suggest that he might not beat Wright, he is capable of making life difficult for the Scot and can cover an advantage in the handicap market.
Tip #2: Stephen Bunting +1.5 legs @ evens with Boylesports.co.uk.
