The PDC World Darts Championships continues from Alexandra Palace and on Friday evening we have three more last 16 clashes.. We’ve studied the form and as always, have three tips and an acca for you, which has been boosted from 8/1 to 9/1.
PDC World Darts Day 13 Evening Tips
After the drama of the afternoon session, we move into the evening at Ally Pally and we have three more cracking looking last 16 ties.
Cross/Dobey o5.5 Sets – 4/6
First up we have an all-England affair between Rob Cross (1/2) and Chris Dobey (13/8).
Dobey has looked impressive thus far, beating Martijn Kleermaker and Gary Anderson comfortably but usually ‘Hollywood’ comes unstuck at the last 16 stage. He has lost three times in the last four years in the Fourth Round.
‘Voltage’ won the world title on debut, back in 2018 and appears to be approaching something close to his best. The 32-year-old averaged over 99 in his opening trwo wins over pal Scotty Williams and Mervyn King.
I expect Cross to win this one but Dobey should nick at least a couple of sets.
Michael van Gerwen -2.5 sets – Evens
‘Mighty Mike’ has played probably the best Darts at Ally Pally so far, beating Lewy Williams and an inspired Mensur Suljovic, with an average of over 100 in both games.
Van Gerwen (2/9) looks a prime candidate to pick up his fourth Sid Waddell Trophy and is as short as 6/4 to do so.
Now, he faces his Dutch compatriot Dirk Van Duijvenbode (10/3) in a last 16 battle he is expected to win comfortably.
The 30-year-old was superb in a comeback win over Ross Smith last time out, hitting 12 maximums and averaging 93.44. He will need to go several levels higher to hurt MVG , however.
DVD has never beaten van Gerwen in a televised match and I don’t think he will come close here, with the latter winning 4-0/4-1.
Stephen Bunting to win – 7/4
Last up, we have another all-English match between Luke Humphries (4/9) and Stephen Bunting (7/4), for a place in the quarter finals.
The world #5 is expected to win this one easily but he has not impressed so far, taking his two matches, against Florian Hempel and Vincent van der Voort to last set deciders.
‘Cool Hand’ Luke has had a superb year on tour but hasn’t been his usual high scoring, clinical self and will find himself up against a man bang in form.
The 37-year-old carries clear pedigree as a former BDO World Champ, but had a few fallow years recently in the PDC.
That usually changes in London though, with impressive wins over Leonard Gates and Dave Chisnall in the bag.
‘The Bullet’ averaged over 102 against Chizzy and finished superbly. If he takes his chances here, he has a great chance of winning.
