Another night and another tournament favourite. With Adrian Lewis going the way of Phil Taylor, James Wade, Gary Anderson and Simon Whitlock, Michael van Gerwen takes the place of tournament favourite, and on his performance last night, that's more than fair. We didn't get on the right side of the Colin Osborne result, so we're 3-1 and with a profit of +3.9 units.
Not the most exciting night of darts last night, admittedly, after Steve Beaton lost to Andy Hamilton. Ian White blew a great chance to get to the quarter-finals, missing his chances to take the third set against the triumphant Wes Newton. Michael van Gerwen dismantling Adrian Lewis was impressive, but Lewis wasn't at the races, and it's proof he's just too inconsistent. And Paul Nicholson's win over Colin Osborne didn't take off like it could have, which was unfortunate. Still, we've got an interesting quarter-final line up, with only two of the World's Top 10 still in the tournament, which makes it an interesting proposition for both the darts fan and also the darts bettor.
As usual, I'm running the Premium Tips service, which went 2-3 last night, taking them to 13-12, and they broke even, leaving them at +6.38 units for the tournament.
