PHIL Taylor heads into tonight's Matchplay final seeking a record 16th title with odds compilers laying 1/2 on Taylor and 7/4 against for Peter Wright

It has been three years since Taylor last won a PDC major title.

Wright averaged around the 94 mark against Gurney last night with just four 180's in 32 legs and has misfired all week in this region.

On the head to head Wright trails Taylor 20-10 and with a chance to win his second major in a year after pocketing the UK Open in March

One stat I have derived is that neither player has hit a 180 in the opening leg in this event. Each of the pairs four matches respectively albeit Wrights opener has seen an opening leg maximum which was by James Wilson.

The first leg NO 180 is 1.74 at Marathonbet and 8/11 with Coral and Ladbrokes is certainly worth considering seeing as neither player has achieved one any sooner than the second leg onwards.

The 180 line in general is set at 17.5 at 5/6 with Hills and Marathonbet and is possibly worth a look although if both perform this line could go close.

Keep an eye on the request a bet markets and on Twitter @lockuptipster if another tip comes to light.


  • First leg 180 NO – 1.74 Marathonbet 1pt (8/11 acceptable with Coral and Ladbrokes)
