It

The Grand Slam Groups E to H

Posted: 08.11.14 in Tournament Analysis Blog category

It's BDO v The PDC at the Grand Slam!

The remaining groups and odds for qualification (2 go through)

Group E

BDO Richie George (10/1) is in with Andy Hamilton (4/6) Christian Kist (6/4) and Phil Taylor (1/33)

A tough draw for Bobby’s lad although Andy Hamilton has not been playing well recently and ex BDO Lakeside Champion Christian Kist’s form is erratic. Nevertheless, Richie’s recent results make his 10/1 price about right!

Group F

An all PDC group. Peter Wright (8/13) Simon Whitlock (5/6) Michael Smith (Evens)  Brendan Dolan (7/4)

Group G

BDO Tony O’Shea (3/1) v James Wade (2/9)( Mervyn King (8/11) Jamie Caven (11/8)

Anyone looking at this group and thinking The Silverback at 3/1 is a bit of value then think again. The Silverback has struggled recently and I think he will really struggle in this group!

Group H

BDO Wesley Harms (10/1) v Stephen Bunting (4/9)  Gary Anderson (1/4) Dean Winstanley (9/4)

The one good thing about Sparky is he will believe he can get out of this group-he is not short of confidence! Last year’s Lakeside Champion Stephen Bunting and Gary Anderson will be too much for Wesley though!
