Pre-tournament favourite Gerwyn Price safely got through his opening challenge at this year’s World Matchplay Darts.

That puts him through to the Second Round fixture against 16th seed Jonny Clayton in an all-Welsh battle.

The winner of the fixture will move ahead to face either reigning Champion Dimitri Van de Bergh or Dave Chisnall.

Gerwyn Price Preview – Price to prevail in Second Round?

Gerwyn Price faced Jermaine Wattimena in the opening round of this year’s World Matchplay on Sunday.

Price cruised through the fixture earning a 10-4 victory.

The reigning World Champion posted a 96 three-dart average in the match so was immediately in gear.

In the match outright for this Second Round contest at the tournament, Price is a quote of 4/7 for the victory* (odds recorded 22:20 GMT on July 20th).

Price is the former player of 2021 on the PDC Tour.

Along with winning the World Championship for the first time, he has backed that form up with semi-final finishes at The Masters and the UK Open.

The one question mark for him will be about his previous track record at the World Matchplay, which isn’t great.

Price went to the quarter-finals on his 2015 debut but hasn’t been past the second round since then.

This looks like a good opportunity for him to do so.

Our betting prediction:
Price 11/9 Correct Score

On to the head to head for the World Matchplay darts betting.

Price and Clayton have met a dozen times before Gerwyn Price took a victory in eight of those.

The most recent meeting that they had was last year’s UK Open which Price won.

It is a five-match winning streak that Price has been on against Clayton currently.

This will be the first time that they have met in the World Matchplay.

A Gerwyn Price 11-9 correct score option is at a quote of 15/2 in darts betting* (odds recorded 22:20 GMT on July 20th)


Jonny Clayton Preview – Can Clayton topple the top seed?

Jonny Clayton is the 16th seed at the 2021 World Matchplay Darts as he looks to knock off the top seed.

In the First Round of action, he faced Dirk van Duijvenbode and claimed a 10-7 match win in that one.

There is a quote of 11/8 in the match outright for darts betting in this fixture* (odds recorded 22:20 GMT on July 20th).

“The Ferret ” has had a big season as he lifted the Premier League Darts title.

That was after finishing fourth in the standings and beating Michael van Gerwen and Jose de Sousa in the playoffs.

But there was an even bigger result for him as he won The Masters in January, surprising the field. Probably a lot of punters too.

This is just the fourth appearance in the main draw of the World Matchplay darts for Clayton.

In none of his three previous efforts did he manage to get past the first round of action.

Jonny Clayton has clearly upped his game this season and looks as if he can pose a threat to his compatriot on Tuesday.

The current form is always important to look at for Darts betting.

This month there have been four Players Championship tournaments that Clayton has tried his hand at.

In three of those events, he posted a W3 L1 record, falling when the going got a little bit tougher.

Clayton only had one match win at his most recent Players Championship tournament.


Gerwyn Price vs Jonny Clayton Betting Advice

The level of competition should be spiced up a little bit between the two Welshmen.

2021 has been a huge one for 46-year-old Clayton with the Premier League and Masters titles under his belt.

He will, however, need to up his game from the performance in the first round of this year’s World Matchplay.


Key Facts – Gerwyn Price vs Jonny Clayton Betting Tip

  • Gerwyn Price holds a W8 L5 record against Clayton
  • Gerwyn Price has made it past the first round for the first time in his last six appearances
  • Jonny Clayton has won the 2021 Masters and Premier League titles


Price has been in storming form this year at the big events and we expect that to continue here at the Winter Gardens.

“The Iceman” is expected to pull through this one.

But that Price 11-9 Correct Score option appeals for a close match at 15/2* (odds recorded 22:20 GMT on July 20th).

It’s been five straight wins for Price over Clayton. The sixth is probably coming.
