Let’s take a look at some of the best betting for the quarter-finals in Blackpool:

Joe Cullen vs Daryl Gurney – Joe Cullen match win and most 180s at 13/10 with bet365 (Thursday @ 20:00)

Joe Cullen to win & most 180s - 13/10

We've gone with Cullen to win & get the most maximum's here

Cullen flexed his muscles in knocking out Gerwyn Price and looks a good shout for the title in Blackpool.

He’s averaging 98 for the tournament so far and has those big-match credentials after a couple of impressive seasons on the PDC Tour.

Daryl Gurney is a surprise package in the quarters and will take anything extra a bonus in the Winter Gardens.

The Northern-Irishman is a two-time semi-finalist at the Matchplay but hasn’t made the last four of a big tournament since 2020.

Cullen should dominate in the match and the 180 race to boot.

Chris Dobey vs Nathan Aspinall – Over 27.5 legs at 8/11 with bet365 (Thursday @ 21:30)

Over 27.5 legs - 8/11

This game can go a long way

These two have shared 6-4 wins over each other in the Premier League this season and we’re expecting Thursday’s match-up to be just as tight.

Both men have big TV titles under their belts in the Masters and UK Open and will see this year’s Matchplay as a big opportunity to add to them with the draw opening up.

In a race to 16, over 27.5 legs looks good with both players reaching 12 legs.

Damon Heta vs Luke Humphries – Luke Humphries match win at 8/15 with bet365 (Friday @ 20:00)

Luke Humphries to win - 8/15

Humphries looks rock solid on Friday night

Humphries is the tournament favourite and top seed at #6 after the elimination of some of the big boys of the PDC.

He has been impressive in wins over Kim Huybrechts and Dirk van Duijvenbode but faces a man that won his last match 11-1…

Damon Heta is on song and is averaging at 95 for the tournament; he’s always a threat at this stage of TV tournaments, but has yet to get past the quarter-final stage of a meaningful event.

Humphries looks the real deal in 2023 and should advance.

Ryan Searle vs Jonny Clayton – 170 finish in match at 11/2 with bet365 (Friday @ 21:30)

170 finish in the match - 11/2

We round things off with one at a bigger price

We can’t pick a winner here, so we’re relying on Searle and Clayton to put on a show in Blackpool.

Clayton has already reeled in the “big fish” 170 finish at this year’s tournament, and Searle’s finishing has been impressive.

This match could well go 32+ legs, so backing the 170 finish at 11/2 looks worth a small stake.
