Michael Smith vs Rob Cross: Betting preview


Michael Smith is yet to land his elusive first major title

Michael Smith beat Glen Durrant in the semifinal. Bully Boy took a 9-2 commanding lead and cruised towards the win, altough his opponent - who defeated Michael Van Gerwen, Adrian Lewis and James Wade in the previous rounds - battled his way back to trail 12-8 at some stage. Prior to that, Michael Smith won a tough opening match against Jamie Hughes, beat 11-9 Max Hopp in the second round and Mervyn King in the last eight round. Bully Boy is desperate to break his major duck. He was the beaten World Championship finalist this year and has also appeared in the Premier League finale, losing in both occasions at the hands of Van Gerwen.

Rob Cross makes the World Matchplay final for the first time

Rob Cross produced one of the greatest comebacks ever seen in darts as he came from 14-7 down to beat Daryl Gurney 17-15 yesterday. He won 11 out of the last 12 legs, and nine on the spin. Prior to that, he defeated Chris Dobey 10-3, Krzysztof Ratajski 11-5, Stephen Bunting 15-14 en route to his final. 'Voltage' is bidding to win his first major title since his famous World Championship triumph on New Year's Day in 2018. The 2018 world champion has been the runner-up at the Premier League Darts, European Championship and UK Open.

Their head-to-head record may offer some insight. From 15 competitive meetings, 12 have been won by Cross. Voltage beat the Bully Boy twice in the Premier League this year, also claiming superiority in the 2019 UK Open semi-finals. Nevertheless, all three of Smith's wins over Cross have come in big stage events.
