Gary Anderson v Adrian Lewis Betting Preview

Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis will contest the PDC World Championship final this evening as both players bid to be crowned world champion for the first time.

Lewis has long been touted as a potential future world champion but until now has always failed to deliver at the crunch moments. But victory over Mark Webster in last night’s semi-final has silenced his doubters and put him in touching distance of the coveted prize.

If he is to win the £200k prize money and, most importantly, the title of world champion then he will need to overcome the best player of the tournament so far. Scotsman Anderson has yet to post a sub-hundred average throughout the five rounds that he has played and has beaten top quality players including Raymond van Barneveld and Terry Jenkins along the way.

Because of Anderson’s impressive averages throughout the bookmakers have been forced to make him the 4/7 favourite for victory tonight. Lewis is a 6/4 chance to get the better of his opponent as he did at the World Grand Prix just over a year ago.

In fact the pair have met eight times previously in all competitions and Lewis holds an impressive 6-2 advantage over Anderson in the head-to-head results.

A popular bet for punters this evening is likely to be in the Total 180s market. Anderson has hit 48 maximums in the tournament so far with Lewis just eight behind him on 40. The bookmakers are quoting 5/6 that there are under 30 180s and the same price that there are more than 30. Anderson is also the 1/2 favourite to hit the most 180s of the two finalists with Lewis at 2/1.

The bookmakers’ favoured winning score for Anderson is either 7-4 or 7-5 both of which can be backed at 11/2 and if Lewis is to win they believe that it is most likely to be by a narrow 7-6 margin which they suggest is a 15/2 chance.

At the beginning of the event we were promised a wide open and exciting PDC World Championships and I think we can agree that we haven’t been disappointed. A new world champion will be crowned this evening but will he be English or Scottish?
