Although this tournament isn’t televised you can watch every match for free on Betfair. You don’t need to have a bet on a match to watch it, all you need is to have money in your account. I watched some matches on Friday night and the picture was perfect once I plugged my laptop straight into the modem.
If you haven’t got a Betfair account yet click here to get the BET £10 & GET £30 FREE offer for all new accounts. As the offer suggests, once you have put on a £10 bet with the sportsbook, not the exchange, you then get 3 x £10 free bets.
Round two starts at midday and it’s the first to 6 legs.
There may well be further bets for round 2 in a separate post as I haven’t managed to go through every match because I need to get some zeds as it’s nearly 3am. Also I might post up some trades in the outright win market, but for some reason there aren’t any up on any exchange at the moment?!?!
So there should be something posted up by 11am at the latest.
Whitlock v Price (1pm)
I am going for the former professional rugby player Gerwyn Price here. He won his first tournament last week and the last time these 2 met he beat Simon Whitlock 6-2. Gerwyn won his round one match 6-0 so he must feel invincible at the moment!
Price 5/4 – Sporting Bet (2.25)
Wright v Gurney (9pm)
Peter Wright has played well in his last two Premier League matches beating James Wade on Thursday with plenty in hand and the week before he beat Phil Taylor ending his 12 week unbeaten run.
However, I don’t think Peter will have it all his own way on Saturday night as I really rate Daryl Gurney as he has beaten Gary Anderson twice over the last 2 years or so. This should be a cracker of a match and a lot closer than the odds suggest because Daryl played really well in his first match on Friday beating David Pallet 6-1 with a 102.10 average.
Over 9.5 Legs 6/5 – Corals (2.20)
Anderson should beat Alan Norris as his 6-1 win over Frederico was very flattering as Frederico only had a 69.80 average. Alan only managed 86.16 himself which isn’t good enough against the world champion.
Thornton won’t need to be on his A game to be John Henderson as John only won his match 6-5 because Wayne Jones missed 13 match darts, yes 13!
Chisnall‘s opponent West only managed 22% on his doubles and an 89.17 average to beat Kyle Anderson 6-4 on Friday night, so Chizzy winning should be a formality.
Wright would have the toughest match out of the four in this accumulator (see above), but I have some added safety in case he loses as the over 9.5 legs could well cover it.
2/1 – Boylesports (3.07)
