Champions League Of Darts – Session 1

champions league of darts on BBC

This is a new tournament for the top eight players in the world. It’s too short to bother with backing a player to win outright or trade anyone, but I do have something for each match in the first session today which starts at midday on BBC1’s red button.

Adrian Lewis v James Wade

I fancy James to win this but he hasn’t beaten Adrian Lewis since 2014 which has put a slight doubt in my mind. So I will trade this match instead on Betfair’s Exchange.

Now Adrian is a player who can play 4 or 5 legs really well and then goes off the boil. So if there are a few breaks of throw and both lay bets get matched I will make 1 point profit no matter which player wins. Or if it is a one side match there will be a 1 point loss.

It’s a good strategy for close matches in darts, snooker & tennis

Lay both players (2 points) in running
