The PDC World Darts Championships are underway and we have daily tips for the tournament on site, as well as a full tournament preview. Today we have a tasty looking four-fold which has been boosted out from 9.5/1 to 11/1!
PDC World Darts Day 2 Tips
- Daniel Larsson +2.5 Set handicap – 1/2
- Rowby-John Rodriguez 3-0 – 19/10
- O’Connor v Greaves – Over 3.5 sets – 4/9
- Florian Hempel to win – 4/6
The arras continues at Ally Pally and Friday sees the first double session of the tournament. We’ve taken a look at the last afternoon game and the three evening matches and put together a nice little four-fold.
Daniel Larsson +2.5 Set handicap – 1/2
Two-time World Champion Adrian Lewis (1/4) returns back to Alexandra Palace to take on Sweden’s Daniel Larsson (3/1), in a match he’s expected to win comfortably.
That makes sense as Lewis has made it through the first round in 16 of 17 appearances, whilst the Swede has only made it through to the 2nd round once, back in 2019.
However, the 41-year-old has nicked at least a set in two of his three previous appearances in London and I think he can do so again here, against a Jackpot that is long since past his prime.
Rowby-John Rodriguez 3-0 – 19/10
The first game of the evening session features Austria’s Rowby-John Rodriguez (1/4) taking on Filipino Lourence Ilagan (11/4).
The 28-year-old has had a decent enough year on the PDC Euro Tour, reaching his first final ( a 8-7 loss to Luke Humphreys), as well as a couple of other quarter finals.
Little John has made it to the second round of the World Championships twice in his last three appearances and I firmly expect him to do so here.
Rodriguez averaged over 97 in his first round win last year, winning 3-0 and I think he can repeat that score again this year over the 44-year-old, who has lost in his last six World Championship appearances.
O’Connor v Greaves – Over 3.5 sets – 4/9
Next up, we have an intriguing looking tie between Ireland’s William O’Connor (2/5) and the PDC Women’s prodigy Beau Greaves (15/8).
After eight straight titles on the trot, many are giving the 18-year-old a real shot and whilst I think she will perform admirably here, I feel that O’Connor may just have too much for her.
The 36-year-old is world ranked 37 and has reached the latter stages of several high ranking tournaments before, his best being a semi-final at the UK Open this season.
O’Connor has also reached the third round here twice in the last four years and I can’t see him losing this one.
Instead, I’m opting for the game to go at least 4 sets.
Florian Hempel to win – 4/6
The final match of the night could well be the tightest of Friday’s line up. England’s Keegan Brown (6/5) faces German Florian Hempel (4/6) in what should be a cracking match.
The two have faced each other twice over the years, with both winning one apiece. Brown actually beat Hempel 6-0 back in March but the German is slightly higher in the world rankings.
30-year-old Brown has had a poor run of fixtures of late, losing seven of his last eight matches, while Hempel has had good wins over Rusty-Jake Rodriguez, Ricky Evans, Alan Soutar and Daryl Gurney in recent months.
The 32-year-old had a super debut at the Ally Pally last year, beating Martin Schindler and Dimitri Van den Bergh on the way and I think he will have just enough here.
