European Darts tips night two
We begin the evening, seeing a few shocks take place in round one. A so-called shock was Mark Webster, but a sure shock was Justin Pipe.
Tonight’s match odds:
(See oddschecker for Live odds)
Michael Van Gerwen (8/15) Andy Smith (7/4)
Richie Burnett (5/7) Co Stompe (6/4)
Dave Chisnall (1/4) Gino Vos (4)
James Wade (2/5) Colin Lloyd (41/18)
Adrian Lewis (4/11) Ian White (11/4)
Terry Jenkins (7/5) Raymond Van Barneveld (7/10)
Kim Huybrechts (8/15) Vincent van der Voort (20/11)
Ronnie Baxter (5/11) Michael Rosenauer (9/4)
Van Gerwen won a recent players championship and have been in great form. We have some great matches on the card and we feel most comfortable with:
Yes we are keen on Wade and Chisnall, but both offer no value.
Interestingly Gerwen and Smith have not met since 2010, and Smith prevailed a whitewash in the match. We do not generally look into the past too much in this game, but Gerwen appears to be good value at 8/15 with Boylesports. We expect him to win 6-3 or 6-4 as he is that good.
Ritchie Burnett is up next, the guy that bled a radiator once to get heated water for a pot noodle in a Hotel. Ritchie is 4/6 general and this is good value seeing as this is a format he prefers generally. His comeback to the top 32 has mainly been through the best of 11 tourneys.
Both players traded victories in the 2010 players championship and we think Burnett will have the mileage to take out Stompe. We do not think he will make it easy, but is considered as one of the hardest grafters on the circuit.
Jenkins has been tipped by John Gwynne and we have found out Barney has declined the invite for Championship Darts next Tuesday at Crondon Park. This indicates Barney has issues his end, and may not even turn up to play. We know Barney has been subjected to the critics over the last couple of years, but antique salesman Terry Jenkins plays a far professional approach now. Jenkins +1.5 legs is the bet of the night at 4/5 Coral
Ronnie Baxter is last up on our betting list. We feel as Baxter has never lost to his opponent, that the 5/11 on offer for the win, should be taken. We wont bother risking money on correct scores, but goes into our list of winners for Saturday.
Bet of the night – Jenkins – +1.5 Coral 4/5
