Stephen Bunting was on fire last night with three wins out of three. He was 4-2 down in his opening match and came back to win it 5-4. He then destroyed Kim Huybrechts 5-1 in a match we expected to be a bit tighter.
In other news from the PDC home tour, Jeffrey de Zwaan has had to withdraw with a shoulder injury. He has been replaced by fellow Dutchman Jermaine Wattimena for tomorrow’s matches while there are two more Dutchman in action today.
7.35pm – Glen Durrant V Vincent van der Meer
One of them is Vincent van der Meer. He faces Glen Durrant in the opener. Durrant is a three-time BDO World Champion and won a World Masters on two occasions.
His opponent is Van der Meer, who I don’t know a whole lot about. He’s 39 years of age and won his tour card last year but I haven’t seen a lot of him on the circuit. By all accounts he’s a good player but I fancy Durrant to win the opener. I’m going with a 5-3 win to the Middlesbrough man at 5/1.
8.05pm – Justin Pipe V Maik Kuivenhoven
Justin Pipe ‘the force’ is a former Grand Prix semi-finalist but he’s slipped down the rankings recently. He hasn’t been in great form and is now down to 56th in the world.
Kuivenhoven is a 31-year old who won his tour card back in 2019. I think the Dutchman is a great price here at Even money giving Pipe is a little out of sorts. In terms of a correct score I like Kuivenhoven to win this one 5-4 at 13/2. Decent price.
Then we have a battle of the Dutchmen here. A Dutch derby. I think Kuivenhoven will win a tight match here with Dutch pride on the line. I fancy the red-hot favourite to beat Van der Meer 5-3 at 7/2.
Durrant is in fine form at the moment. He’s been practicing hard and has a great setup at home. He’s been working hard on his game and is a real grinder of a player. I fancy Durrant to demolish Pipe here 5-2 at 100/30. This is my NB.
My treble of the day is the Glen Durrant three timer folks. This is my NAP of the day. I think Durrant will shine tonight with a hat-trick of wins. Paddy Power have an enhanced Power Price for the treble on their website. Durrant to win all three of his matches was 13/10 and is now 17/10. Looks like value to me! Best of luck with your bets guys and stay safe.
