Tonight's final is going to make absolutely fascinating viewing. It's incredibly hard to split the two, as the odds suggest. I think it's going to go deep, so betting on 10+ sets could be a profitable punt.
If it does, then I'd slightly favour GARY ANDERSON, who's been there and done it on the Ally Pally stage, and the Flying Scotsman can lift the Sid Waddel Trophy for the third time on Sunday.
Anderson has made serene progress into his fifth World Final in the last ten years. Devon Petersen and Dirk van Duijvenbode hardly tested the number 13 seed. Dave Chisnell was a shadow of the player who thrashed Michael van Gerwen on Friday, and I think that put Anderson off slightly, as the Scotsman wasn't at his best during that 6-3 victory.
In contrast, Gerwyn Price has had to work very hard to make it through to his first Final. Price has come through final leg deciders in three of his five matches, and overcame an in-form Mervyn King in round four.
In Saturday's semi-final, Price had to hang in there as he was battered by Stephen Bunting for three sets. Bunting averaged over 100 and was checking out at 80% as he opened up a 3-1 lead. As Bunting's level dropped, Price asserted his class, and ran out a 6-4 winner.
Price has had the edge over Anderson on the big stage in recent years. Following that controversial win in the 2018 Grand Slam Final, "The Iceman" beat Anderson 16-9 in the quarter-final of that tournament the following year, and secured an 8-3 win over his Scottish rival when they met in the Premier League in August.
Anderson was, at that time, struggling for both form and fitness. This week, there've been no signs of the knee injury that plagued his summer, and Anderson has barely had to come out of third gear to win any of his matches so far.
The World Championship is Anderson's favourite tournament. He thrives on set play and the grandeur of a World Final is nothing new to the two-time Champion. Price cut a fatigued figure heading into the tournament, and I wonder how much the Welshman has left in the tank after battling his way to the final. At the odds, I think Anderson is the best bet.
