Tonight’s PDC Home Tour features James Wade, Ryan Searle, Andy Boulton and Adrian Gray.

James Wade is the favourite to qualify at 5/4, followed by Searle 15/8, Boulton 9/2 and Gray 6/1.

Andy Boulton v James Wade

The Machine has mainly been known as the best finisher in the game, but not for his 180 hitting. However his maximums continue to be vastly underrated in our opinion, and he should win this match comfortably against a below form Andy Boulton.

Recommended bet: James Wade to hit most 180s and win match @ 15/8

If it’s still going, there are probably odds on it at PaddyPower.com

Andy Boulton v Adrian Gray

Boulton v Gray looks likely to be the battle for 3rd place. Both have been struggling for form of late and it’s hard to split them.

There’s value in Gray for the most 180s here at 5/2. His finishing is what lets him down, but we expect to see him hitting the treble 20 throughout.

Recommended bet: Adrian Gray Most 180s @ 5/2

James Wade v Ryan Searle

This looks on paper to be the clash for top spot. Ryan Searle continues to impress, with a bit of “stage fright” potentially why he hasn’t yet hit the heights on the big stage.

However, his record in Players Championship events (behind closed doors) this year is one of the best, with him taking home a title in February. He looks real value to beat James Wade here at 11/10 and top the group.

Recommended bet: Ryan Searle to beat James Wade @ 11/10 and to top the group @ 15/8
