10:10 Compiegne (FR): Teikei @ 4.33 SkyBetEdited by Tipsterix
Keegan Brown wins and performs really well I thought. Evans gave Gurney a test but lost in the end. Gurney looked decent and will face Keegan in the next round.
We get into the last 16 tonight and we have 4 matches tonight. First of all Michael Smith faces Max Hopp. This could be a banana skin for Smith and Hopp was somebody I was looking at for the quarter but I took the plunge on Smith. You would have to say he is the better player and more consistent but Hopp is a dangerous one and it's enough for me to leave this match alone and keep my Smith bet. In all fairness Smith looked very good in beating the dangerous Hughes.
Next up James Wade takes on Mensur Suljovic. These two are not the best of friends and Wade has always struggled against playing Mensur. The slowness in Mensur's game really puts him off. Wade beat Mensur 6-3 at the Austrian Open in May but prior to that, Mensur was on a 4 out of 5 win streak against "The Machine". Wade should not even be here, as my tip for the tournmaent, De Zwaan had 5 match-darts against him and bottled it. Mensur thrashed Wattimena 10-1. Both players had a similar average in the last round (96.16 vs 96.76) I'm going to take the finalist from last year, Mensur. I think he plays well here and I still think he has abit of a curse on Wade.
Next up we have reigning champion Gary Anderson taking on Merv King. King performed really well against Aspinall and had a ton average whilst Gary Anderson only scored 93 in his average whilst beating Noppert. It's hard to know what to go on with that, as maybe he would raise his game when needed. Anderson looks alittle bit rusty still though and he says that himself. I think King is genuine value here and more so he has won the last 2 head-2-heads against Gary.
Finally we have MVG against Durrant. Durrant won the only h2h between these two this year and I'm going to take a gamble on him doing the same again here. Van Gerwen hit just 93 in his average when he beat Beaton, whilst Durrant looked composed and assured in the beating of Lewis. Durrant hit a 101 average in that match. The value is surely with Glen.

Storm Bomber 4.45 Wolverhampton (Win 7/1 Bet365)
When his owners purchased Storm Bomber for £240k (April 2018) they were expecting far better than competing in a class 6 maiden at Wolverhampton. Today, he may start repaying them. The step up in distance and all weather surface may be the key.
