Humphries Heading For Trio Of Triumphs

Just two months ago, Luke Humphries had never won a major title. Fast forward, and the 28-year-old is on the cusp of clinching three consecutive majors, including a first world title.

Should Cool Hand reach the final, he will become the World No.1 for the first time in his career, and is the odds-on favourite (1.20) with darts betting sites to do so.

Luke Humphries

Hailing from Newbury, Humphries was on the brink of defeat in two of his first three matches, showcasing resilience that has become a hallmark of his journey this year.

His quarter-final performance was a masterclass, a resounding 5-1 victory over Dave Chisnall where he averaged an impressive 103.50. The exit of Van Gerwen seems to have spurred him on, with Humphries now entering the last four as the frontrunner for the sport's biggest prize.

On the flip side, Scott Williams, having claimed the scalp of the three-time world champion, exudes confidence and enters this clash with a fearless demeanour. 

Bookmakers peg him at 5.50 for a first appearance in the final, presenting a scenario that many deem a "free roll of the dice."

If Cool Hand can replicate his stellar performance from yesterday, we anticipate him dominating the proceedings and emerging as the Match Treble victor on his path to victory.

Despite playing two sets less than Williams in his quarter-final match, Humphries hit an equal number of 180s (12) as his semi-final opponent. Moreover, he recorded a superior high checkout of 164 compared to Williams' 100.

In what promises to be a career-high payday for the Boston thrower, defeating the third seed in tonight's battle would require something special.

Notably, Williams has yet to achieve a ton-plus average, and should Humphries deliver a performance anywhere near the 103.5 average he displayed against Chisnall, we expect Cool Hand to control over the match's flow and cruise to victory.

Can Cross Defuse Luke The Nuke?

As surprising as it may be, the only previous world champion finds himself cast as the outsider in a face-off against a debutant, yet Luke Littler's ability speaks volumes to his opponent.

Having achieved three ton-plus averages in his five matches so far, Littler boasts the highest average among the remaining quartet, while sitting in third position in the Ballon d’Art standings in its inaugural showing.

Nevertheless, the looming challenge of Rob Cross is anticipated to be Littler's most formidable test. Drawing from his triumphant 2018 experience, the 33-year-old possesses a wealth of big game expertise, suggesting he could topple the teenager.

Chris Dobey looked poised to secure the first semi-final spot, storming to a 4-0 lead over Voltage and was as short as 1.01 on exchange betting sites to go on and claim a fifth set.

However, in what is now regarded as one of Ally Pally's finest comebacks, Cross orchestrated a remarkable turnaround, clinching a memorable 5-4 victory.

As the provisional World No.6, Cross enters this match with a bolstered sense of assurance, having dispatched a tough opponent in the previous round. 

While the crowd may lean towards supporting his opponent, Rob's substantial experience on the grand stage suggests that he can set aside the crowd's presence, focusing solely on securing a spot in the final.

The outcome of this match is likely to hinge on timing, and if Voltage can replicate his signature shots and impressive bullseye finishes displayed against Dobey, victory against Littler seems probable. 

Unibet have tempting odds of 2.20 for the 2018 winner to reach a second World Championship final is enticing enough.
