It’s Day 26 of the PDC at Home Tour, but first we’ll have a look at what happened last night.

Jose De Sousa. Wow. The 46-year-old Portuguese has become star. He averaged 110.5 in a thumping 5-0 win over Robert Thornton in his opener, finishing off with a 132 checkout and three 180s. In his second match, he beat Keegan Brown with an average of 97.6 and then he saw off Reece Robinson with a 106.8 average.

What an amazing performance. He’s the first Portuguese player to win on the pro tour and he’s got a big future ahead of him I’m sure.

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

And now on to today’s action…

19.35 Conan Whitehead v Steve Brown

Conan ‘the Barbarian’ Whitehead received a second invitation after Keegan Brown had technical difficulties in a Group 12 match. Steve Brown finished 2nd in Group 10 behind to World Number 6 Nathan Aspinall, so that was a great display from him.

He’s a really good man. He does a great walk on through his house, runs junior darts, has a big family, adopts kids, fosters kids. Top bloke.

I am going for a Brown win here, as he was so impressive in his first-round matches. A 5-4 win for Brown is 11/2.

Steve Brown

20.05 Mike de Decker v Martin Atkins

Belgian youngster de Decker takes on Atkins, who was competitive in his first-round matches.

It won’t be plain sailing for Atkins here but I think he’ll just have too much for de Decker. I fancy a 5-3 win to Atkins at 13/2.

20.35 Steve Brown v Martin Atkins

Atkins nailed two 180s in his last two matches and I expect him to continue that run here. I think Atkins will win the match, but my tip is for him to throw the most 180s in this one.

Atkins with the most 180s is 15/8, which I think is a decent price.

21.35 Mike de Decker v Steve Brown

I fancy a Mike de Decker win here.

In fact I fancy de Decker to beat Steve Brown, throw the most 180s and hit the highest check-outThis is my NAP of the day. Paddy Power have an enhanced price of 3/1 from 5/2.

Tonight’s double

There is a double I fancy tonight folks if you want to get on. My NAP is Mike de Decker to beat Steve Brown, whilst throwing the most 180s and hitting the highest check-out. That comes in at 3/1.

I’m putting it together in a double with Conan Whitehead to beat Martin Atkins 5-4 at 9/2.

That double works out at just over 20/1! Best of luck with your bets and stay safe.
