Punters Back Van Gerwen For Sixth BoyleSports World Grand Prix After Opening Win

Michael van Gerwen is back in favour with punters after he began his BoyleSports World Grand Prix campaign with a convincing performance against Krzysztof Ratajski.

The Dutchman returned to form with a blistering first set on route to a 2-1 victory to set up a meeting with Devon Petersen, who finished with a bullseye in his 2-0 victory over Jose de Sousa.

If Michael van Gerwen’s resurgence continues, nobody will be surprised to see him walk off the winner again in a tournament he clearly relishes.

Petersen is into 22/1 from 28/1 for the title despite his tricky second round assignment, while favourite van Gerwen has shortened into 5/2 from 4/1 for a sixth BoyleSports World Grand Prix crown having been easy to back before the off following a recent dip in form.

Scot Gary Anderson is into 10/1 from 12/1 after seeing off Rob Cross in the first round, with Gerwyn Price and Peter Wright the joint 11/2 second favourites.
