Mighty Mike Van Gerwen To Win The World Series Of Darts Finals

The World Series of Darts Finals takes place at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, for the second year running this weekend and defending champion Michael van Gerwen is undoubtedly the man to beat following his electric performance in winning the European Championship last week...

Mighty Mike

'Mighty Mike' overcame what looked on paper at least a very tough draw in Belgium as he romped to victory and he averaged an eye-watering 111.62 when hammering Mensur Suljovic 11-1 in the final.

The Dutchman is playing some absolutely inspired darts and we simply cannot back against him coming out on top in Glasgow again, with Betfair offering a best price 5/6 about a successful title defence.

Van Gerwen is in the same half of the draw as the out-of-sorts Raymond van Barneveld and Dave Chisnall, who made an early exit from the European Championships, as well as Adrian Lewis, who missed the trip to Belgium last week.

The Bottom Half Of The Draw

It is difficult to see anyone beating van Gerwen in this straight knockout format that involves the opening two rounds taking place on Saturday prior to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final on Sunday.

The top-eight seeded players from this season's World Series events are in attendance in Glasgow, along with eight 'global prospects'.

Mensur Suljovic is one of those 'global prospects' following his inspired run to the final of the European Championship but how much has he got left in the tank?

The Austrian could meet Phil Traylor in the second round after beating 'The Power' in the quarter-finals of Belgium last week and Taylor heads here as a 7/1 chance.

The Englishman is in a tough fourth quarter of the draw that also includes the in-form James Wade, who fell to Suljovic in the semi's last week. Wade (28/1 with Boylesports) was a quarter-finalist in Glasgow twelve months ago and it is worth noting that he has won two of his past three meetings with Taylor.

The Wright Stuff

Wade is worthy of each-way attention at the prices, as is Peter Wright (25/1 with Betfred), who catches our attention after he reached the final here twelve months ago. The Scot beat Wade and Taylor en route to the final, where he eventually lost a thriller 11-10 to van Gerwen.

Wright has now won four of his past five meetings with Wade and the Scot is a player who tends to thrive in front of his own Scottish crowds, with Betfred going 5/2 for Wright to win a third quarter that also includes two-time world champion Gary Anderson (7/1), who has been cowed by the prospect of playing on home soil in the past.
