On Saturday 7th January the BDO World Championship starts at Lakeside in Surrey with coverage for the first time on Channel 4 & BT Sports. It may not be as good as the PDC World Championship but there is still money to be made.
Channel 4 are covering the afternoon sessions and BT Sports are covering the evening sessions with both covering the final.
I am only really backing to lay two players from opposite halves of the draw to win outright and perhaps a few bets in the individual matches in the final few rounds
I will put up another post advising when I intend to lay back my selections, but if all goes according to plan they could very well meet in the final!
I was very impressed with Danny in the Grand Slam of Darts in particular when he pushed Gary Anderson to a final leg (losing 10:9) getting 69% on his doubles. He beat Mensur Suljovic 5:3 with 71% on his doubles and also managed a tournament average on his doubles of 62%.
With his doubling prowess he should go deep in this years world championship.
Glen is coming into this tournament after winning 6:3 in the the World Masters final last month and is a worthy favourite.
He has in fact won 7 out of his last 9 matches and lost against Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld in the Grand Slam of Darts.
