Michael Smith vs Michael Van Gerwen: Betting preview
Michael Smith is back in the showpiece match after last year’s heartache against Peter Wright. The St Helens thrower withstood the challenge of Germany’s Gabriel Clemens - who knocked Gerwyn Price out of the tournament on New Year's Day - pulling clear after the first two sets were shared to win 6-2. Bully Boy averaged 103.79 and landed five 100-plus checkouts to end the challenge of Clemens. Prior to that, Smith defeated Stephen Bunting 5-3, Joe Cullen 4-1 and survived a scare against Martin Schindler (4-3, after trailing the German 3-1).
Michael van Gerwen produced a ruthless display to thrash Belgium’s Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-0, averaging 108.28 in the process. As a result, the Dutchman has won the last 13 sets in a row as he whitewashed Chris Dobey 5-0 in the quarter finals and won the last two sets against fellow countryman Dirk Van Duijvenbode in the last-16 round. Mighty Mike has only conceded two legs to Dobey and four to Van Den Bergh. Moreover, he has averaged 100+ in all his outings at Ally Parlly this year.
As to direct encounters, a rerun of the 2019 PDC World Darts Championship final, when the Dutchman won 7-3. Overall, MVG lead 18-8. In 2022, Van Gerwen has won five of the 8 meeting, but has lost three in a row - two Premier League matches and at the US Darts Masters in June.
