Van Barneveld to beat Anderson at 2/1
As the 2016 Grand Slam of Darts reaches its latter stages, we are treated with a tussle between two top arrowsmiths as Raymond van Barneveld and Gary Anderson battle it out on Saturday evening.
And it is from this match that Coral have picked out their latest bet of the day, with terrific odds of 2/1 available for Barney just to beat The Flying Scotsman in their quarter-final clash.
Read on to find out just why you should take this hand-picked price…
Van Barneveld may not have enjoyed facing Anderson in recent meetings, but up until last year was at one point 14-7 up in total matches played.
The deadly Dutchman looks to be back in top form too, after averaging over 100 in all three of his group games this tournament, including a whopping 110.15 against Nathan Aspinall.
Barnstorming Barney can carry on fine run
In the second round, meanwhile, he disposed of BDO world number one Glen Durrant 10-7, again out-scoring his counterpart, and he certainly won’t be phased by facing Anderson next.
The Flying Scotsman has looked shaky at times since adopting glasses while on the oche, and only just edged past young BDO Dutchman Danny Noppert 10-9 to reach this stage.
So, Barney will be hoping to take full advantage as Anderson adjusts to life with his new look, and unleash the spirit of his former self that saw him lift the 2012 Grand Slam of Darts trophy when he beat Michael van Gerwen in an epic final.
Along with Mighty Mike, Phil Taylor and Scott Waites, no one else has won this competition either, including Anderson, so Van Barneveld certainly knows what it takes to claim the title.
So, what are you waiting for punters? Don’t miss out on this 2/1 price on Barney to beat Anderson!
