No doubt you’re wondering what day it is – well it’s Monday, folks! May the 4th. Star Wars Day and Day 18 of the PDC At Home Tour. Some big names are in action today as the likes of former BDO World Champion Stephen Bunting and World Cup finalist Kim ‘the hurricane’ Huybrechts all compete.
Just to reflect on yesterday’s action, Australian roofer Damon Heta stole the show fuelled by 4 coffees and a Berocca in Perth. His first match was at about 3am down under and his last match finished up about 6am!
Our tip John Henderson finished second so he didn’t do quite as well as we expected but fair play to Heta! He shouted so loud when he won his last match, he woke up his wife and dogs! But he’s a character with a big future!
7.35pm – Stephen Bunting V Harald Leitinger
You probably don’t know much about Leitinger! Well, he’s a 35-year old Austrian. He won his tour card in January and is a decent player who showed he’s committed after travelling over from Austria.
Bunting was the 2014 BDO World Champion and is from St. Helen’s. He burst onto the scene when he switched to the PDC. He’s had big runs in major competitions but I fancy the upset here in the opener, folks! A 5-4 victory to Leitinger is a massive 17/2! This is NB.
8.05pm – Kim Huybrechts V Nathan Derry
Derry is the ‘slingshot’ from Norfolk and is 33-years old. He showed his class in the UK Open back in 2015 when beating Alan Tabern and Keegan Brown.
He lost to Mervin King but was leading 8-5 in that match. He won his tour card this year and is a very good player. I’m going for a Derry win here. A 5-3 win for him is 11/2.
8.30pm – Herald Leitinger V Nathan Derry
I think even money for Derry is a great price! That is my Nap of the day. Get on! I think it will be tight though so I’d be looking at a 5-4 win at 6/1 for Slingshot!
9.00pm – Stephen Bunting V Kim Huybrechts
Then a massive game for both these players. They’ll know the cameras will be on them. They’ll know the nation are streaming this one!
Huybrechts is a big game player and I fancy him to win this one. A tight tense battle this will be. A 5-4 victory to Huybrechts is 7/1. Decent price that.
Nathan Derry treble
My treble for today is the Slingshot three-timer, folks. Nathan Derry to win all of his matches and land the hat-trick is 17/1 and I think it looks rock solid! Best of luck with your bets and stay safe!
