World Matchplay Darts: Michael Van Gerwen vs Ian WhitePublished July 23, 2015 by Sol FH
Van Gerwen looks flawless and looks to stay that way against White tonight at 20:15 GMT.
Michael Van Gerwen is looking to continue dominating opponents at the World Matchplay of Darts this year and is on the path to another final appearance; the problem is, so is Phil Taylor. Taylor and Van Gerwen were in the final last year and Taylor was the champion. In fact, Taylor has been champion for seven years straight and has won fifteen times out of the last twenty years.
But getting back to Van Gerwen and White, the match looks like it will be another easy win for the man from the Netherlands and most of the online sportsbooks like bet365 agree and it shows in the one-sided odds.
In his last match, Van Gerwen thrashed a helpless Jamie Lewis 13-2 and is now the favorite to make the Semi-Finals after tonight's match against Ian White.
Van Gerwen averaged an amazing 110.93 last match and it was the fourth-highest since the first ever World Matchplay tournament, 22 years ago.
