Darts tips: Dave Clark’s tasty treble for tonight’s PDC Home Tour action

Sky Sports presenter Dave runs through his best bets for Friday night's matches



Well, the big guns were out in force last night! Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor made a guest appearance at the Modus Night of Darts and won four of his five matches, even averaging 102 in one game.

It was a really good performance from Taylor and I’m convinced he could still come back and play at the highest level on a full-time basis.

Over in the PDC there was controversy over Jelle Klaasen’s winning double 20 in leg 2 of one of his matches.

Some thought it wasn’t on the right bed, but the Dutchman later posted a picture online of the dart nestled in the corner. He also tweeted that he was disappointed people thought he might have cheated and put it down to just a poor live stream.

Right, on to today’s darts…

7.30pm – Jonny Clayton v Adam Hunt

My NAP is the opener here folks. Clayton, ‘the Welsh Ferret’, was a semi-finalist in the UK Open a few years ago and was a runner-up in the Players Championship finals. He is now in world’s top 16. Hunt, ‘the Hunter’, from the North East came from the PDC Challenge Tour.

I’m going for Clayton to do a job on Hunt here. I fancy a comfortable victory.

A 5-3 win for Clayton is my bet of the day @ 4/1

8pm – Richard North v David Pallett

My NB is in the second match. North is a 30-year-old former bricklayer from Romsey. He made the last 16 of the World Grand Prix and lost 3-0 to Barney in the first round of the 2018 World Championship.

Pallet is a 31-year old from Shropshire. He was a semi-finalist in the 2018 UK Open and only won his tour card back last year.

He is playing half-decent darts at the minute, so I fancy a tight tense tussle between these two.

My NB is Pallett to win 5-4 @ 4/1

Jonny Clayton v David Pallet

The first leg of the treble is obviously going to be my NAP. That’s Jonny Clayton to beat Adam Hunt 5-3 in the opener at 4/1.

Then the meat in the sandwich is Adam Hunt to beat David Pallet 5-3. That’s a massive 6/1.

Then the last leg of the treble is Jonny Clayton to beat David Pallet 5-2 @ 5/1 in the last game of the night.


The outrageous treble is over 200/1 but I think it has a great chance!

Best of luck with your bets folks and remember to stay home and stay safe!
