Well, it’s quite congested at the top of the leaderboard going into round 4 of the second major of the year. So rather than try and pick out a winner in what looks to be an open contest, I tend to try and pick out the weak link and lay them instead.
My first choice to lay from the top 5 on the leaderboard and top 5 in the betting would be Tommy Fleetwood but he is too high for me at 9.00 (8/1), so next on the list is Brooks Koepka.
Harman, Thomas & Fowler have all won this season, so they are more than capable doing it again considering where they are on the leaderboard.
Brooks Koepka has only won once on the PGA Tour since he joined back in 2012 and that win was way back in 2015. He has also finished second twice this season which indicates to me that he has trouble getting over the line.

I try to have my racing tips up on here the night before around 5pm – 6pm, to take advantage of early prices. But it won’t always be possible during early June as I tend to have a lot on this time of year.
There will be a reminder for my horse racing tips on Facebook & Twitter at 10am every morning. But it’s probably best to check on here the night before as most of my tips tend to come down in the betting!
Don’t forget to keep an eye on my results spreadsheet and stay well away from any tipsters who don’t publish results, for obvious reasons.
My horse racing tips are usually up on here the night before to take advantage of early prices as most of my tips come down in the betting. There will be a reminder on my Facebook & Twitter pages at 11am daily, but the prices may well be shorter by then.
My horse racing tips are usually up on here between 5 pm – 6 pm the night before to take advantage of early prices as most of my tips come down in the betting. But they will be the odd day this month where they will later than this.
Well it’s the final that I predicted here and in hindsight I should have done a no nonsense 2 point Anderson and MvG semi-final double.
Assuming I make money in the final, it will be the third profitable tournament in a row with the other two tournaments being both the PDC and the BDO World Championships.
This post has been typed up during Michael’s semi-final so prices won’t be available straight away, but they will be updated on my spreadsheet.
Don’t forget that the Premier League starts on Thursday and naturally I will be tipping for this and my tips will be up nice and early, probably Wednesday night. Click here to see the Premier League fixtures.
Michael van Gerwen v Gary Anderson
I don’t think MvG has been playing that good really and I am surprised that the ITV4 pundits haven’t mentioned it. Yeah he has be scoring heavy but his doubles have been poor compared to his usual high standards.
Michael’s doubles percentages average has only been 36% for this tournament, compared to Gary’s impressive 60%.
At this level with two heavy scorers it comes down to the doubles, so it’s Gary for me here at odds against. There is always the possibility that Michael will up his game for the final, but I will take my chances based on what has happened here so far.
Darts is back and we continue with round two which is over two sessions on Tuesday.
Just one bet for me for in this session, a double.

Robert Thornton v Daryl Gurney (3pm)
Robert won the Grand Prix in Dublin at 80/1 beating MvG in the final in 2015 but his darts game has gone astray ever since. Both Daryl and Robert were poor on their doubles but Daryl’s 3 dart average was significantly higher and that should be enough to get him over the line in this match.
Dave Chisnall v Chris Dobey (4.45pm)
Dave will probably win this but he can be a bit suspect on his doubles, but where he excels is being a prolific 180 hitter. He managed the most 180s in round one of nine compared to Chris’s two.
A bit late I know, but I had to cancel my initial tip on this match as I got the price wrong.
Kim Huybrechts v James Wilson (10.15pm)
Kim is the obvious favourite in this match and rightly, so but I think this match will be much closer than the odds suggest.
These two played in the European Championship in October and James won 6:3. James also beat Dave Chisnall in November 5:2 in the Grand Slam Of Darts. But Kim has been playing better over the last two or three months and should come out on top.
The big plus is that Kim is throwing first, which is a massive advantage!
