Glen Durrant Preview – Durrant comes up big again at World Matchplay

Glen Durrant got another feather in his World Matchplay cap as he beat Peter Wright in the last round.

Wright, the current World and Masters champion, just came up short in failing to continue his winning streak over Durrant.

Durrant posted an 11-8 win in a thrilling match. That built on his opening round success over Jeffrey de Zwaan.

That was a far more comfortable victory for Durrant against the Dutchman, a 10-3 success.

Now it is another Dutchman that Durrant will meet as he faces Vincent van der Voort for a place in the semi finals.

Our betting prediction:
Durrant 16-10 Correct Score

It was at the semi finals stage last season that Durrant fell in the World Matchplay, having beaten Michael van Gerwen on his path to the final four.

This will be the first ever meeting between Durrant and Van der Voort.

As Durrant is trading as the odds-on favourite in the match outright, it is to the handicap market that we look for value.

A Glen Durrant -3.5 handicap is at 4/5* (odds taken 02:36 GMT, Thursday 23rd July)


Vincent Van der Voort Preview – Van der Voort making the most of the draw

Vincent Van der Voort has been enjoying himself in the bubble at Milton Keynes.

He was first up against 10th seed Dave Chisnall in the first round and Van der Voort scored a 10-6 win there.

It was just as comfortable for the Dutchman in the second round as he faced 7th seed Daryl Gurney.

Van der Voort claimed an easy 11-5 victory in that one to set up this clash with Durrant.

This has been a burst of form at the tournament out of the blue as the “Dutch Destroyer” has only been past the second round once before.

That was when he was eliminated at the quarter finals stage back in 2009.
