BoyleSports betting preview: Searle odds-on to dodge Bullet

Ryan Searle (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Ryan Searle will exact revenge on Stephen Bunting for his World Championship defeat if the betting is anything to go by as they renew rivalries on Thursday night at the BoyleSports World Grand Prix.

A thrilling fourth round clash between the pair at the Alexandra Palace at the end of last year went the way of Bunting following a tense final-leg decider.

However, the St Helems man will start their quarter-final in Leicester as the 6/5 underdog, with Searle chalked up at 4/6 with BoyleSports to tee up a semi-final date with either Gerwyn Price or Dave Chisnall.

Price is an odds-on shot at 1/3 to be lying in wait for the winner of the all-English clash as he takes on Chisnall (9/4) in the third of four quarter-finals on Thursday.

Danny Noppert and Jonny Clayton are also odds-on at 4/7 and 8/15 respectively to book semi-final berths at the expense of Ian White and Krzysztof Ratajski.

Both Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton hit a 'Full House' in their previous matches by winning with the most 180s and highest checkout, and the duo are available at 16/1 with BoyleSports to do so again tonight and keep alive the prospect of an all-Welsh final in the process.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: "We have seen plenty of upsets so far and Dave Chisnall will be hoping the trend continues, because odds of 9/4 suggest he has the toughest task of the night against outright favourite Gerwyn Price.

"The Bunting v Searle match stands out as our closest betting heat of the night although it's Ryan Searle who is attracting the slightly larger proportion of support."
