Grand Slam of Darts betting preview
Gerwyn Price will have his eyes fully set on securing his another Grand Slam of Darts title to his growing list of 2020 victories.
Defending champion will have his eyes set on joining the likes of Darts legends Michael van Gerwen and Phil Taylor if he wins the Eric Bristow trophy for the third successive time.
The Iceman is has already claimed the World Cup of Darts, World Series of Darts and the World Grand Prix titles in the 2020 season – his best performance – and is the current favourite with thepools.com at 10/3.
The Welshman will play against fellow countryman Jonny Clayton in the group stages along with Ryan Joyce and Mikuru Suzuki.
And even though being the favourite may add pressure to any competitor, Price seems to be relishing the situation he is in right now.
- Gerwyn Price to win outright – 10/3
“I’m in some good form off the back of winning the World Grand Prix and World Cup. Hopefully I can have another good run here, I'm looking forward to it,” said Price.
“I like the favourite tag. It gives you a little boost and a bit of extra confidence. It shows that not only am I confident, but other people are confident in my ability as well.
“Hopefully I can go out and play like a favourite.
“To win three in a row is something that has only been achieved by Phil [Taylor] and Michael [van Gerwen] so it would be nice to make a bit of history and join them.”
His main competition could be against last year's runner-up Peter Wright.
Snakebite has featured in the final twice in the last three years but is yet to have his hands on the trophy and at 7/2 with thepools.com he is priced as Price's closest rival.
The Scot has been drawn in Group E along with World Grand Prix finalist Dirk van Duijvenbode, Ian White and Devon Petersen.
