Go doolally for the Ally Pally on Thursday with Dave Clark’s darts tips

There's some mammoth performers in action at the PDC World Championships this evening, and Dave Clark has weighed up his best bets....


Mervyn King v Jan Dekker

King’s twice been a semi-finalist here, Jan Dekker held his nerve against Lisa Ashton, who was brilliantly averaging 107 in that first set. Mervyn, though, at 8/11, will win this.

It’ll be a tight match. Mervyn King stil has the game, he’ll want to prove a point. King 3-1 for me.

Adrian Lewis v Ted Evetts

Super Ted, 21-year-old from Warwickshire, lost 3-0 to Gerwyn Price in his World Championship debut 12 months ago.

He beat Simon Stevenson 3-0 in the first round with check outs of 120 and 108, he looked really good.

An out-of-confidence Adrian Lewis could be vulnerable. 11/4 for Ted Evetts is abig price, but Adrian should come through and show his class. I don’t think Ted will take a set off him.

Mensur Suljovic v Ryan Searle

Suljovic is in scintillating form. He was the Matchplay finalist this year.

Searle is a good player on the circuit, but Mensur Suljovic at 1/6 is too short a price for me.

A 3-0 win for the Austrian at 5/4 would be my pick and it should all be very comfortable for him.
