DARTS expert Boring Winners (@BoringWinners) shares his views on the second day of action at the World Matchplay.
World Matchplay Darts | 23nd July 2017 | Sky Sports
Day 2 sees two sessions comprising of eight games and I’ve gone for a number of bets again today. However, there are so many perfectly poised bets for Sunday.
The number of bets will continue to decrease after day.
Cristo Reyes v Robert Thornton | Sunday 14:00 | Sky Sports
Benito Van De Pas v Daryl Gurney | Sunday 15:00 | Sky Sports
If you read my tournament preview – you will know how high I rate Gurney.
He beat two of the top three ranked players in the world last week in a long format so that was great preparation for him. Gurney has won the last three previous encounters these two have had 6-3, 6-4 and 10-5.
Gurney averaged 96, 102, 98 and 99 in his four matches last week.
Many, myself included – thought Benito would’ve pushed on after last year but he has been in dire form lately. He hasn’t made it past Round 2 in his last four European Tour appearances. His averaging in his last three games are worrying with his highest being 92 over a short format.
Gurney should dominate the 180 match. In his four matches at the US Masters last week he hit 21 180s over 49 games which average out at an 180 every 2.3 legs.
Benito has hit just 8 180s in his last five matches, which have lasted 48 legs, so he’s currently averaging a 180 every six legs.
Daryl Gurney to win and Gurney -1.5 180 handicap is 13/10 at William Hill.
Mensur Suljovic v John Henderson | Sunday 16:00 | Sky Sports
Cristo Reyes v Robert Thornton – Cristo Reyes to win and Reyes Over 2 180s (11/10 William Hill)
Benito Van De Pas v Daryl Gurney – Daryl Gurney to win and Gurney -1.5 180 handicap (13/10 William Hill)
Mensur Suljovic v John Henderson – Mensur Suljovic to win -2.5 handicap and Under 9 Match 180s (4/5 William Hill)
