Last night Scott ‘Scotty 2 Hotty’ Waites won all three games to top the group. He also got seven darts to a 9 darter, in what was an impressive showing.
Anyway, on to tonight’s action,and we’re on Day 28 of the PDC Home Tour with Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith the main attraction alongside Luke Humphries, the world youth champion.
Michael Smith v Mike van Duivenbode
Bully Boy Smith is ranked number five in the world, and should get off to a flying start here. He’s played seven times against Duivenbode and he has managed to win all of them.
Luke Humphreys v Andy Boulton
Humphreys is the reigning world youth champion, while Boulton is an experienced campaigner who has won both of their head-to-head matches, including knocking his opponent out of the UK Open.
Mike van Duivenbode v Andy Boulton
Boulton won the two previous encounters last year 6-0 and 6-1.
I’m backing the experienced Scot to get the job done again. Boulton to win 5-3 is available @ 6/1.
Michael Smith v Luke Humphreys
This is box office stuff, the main event of the evening. World Championship finalist v World Youth Champion.
Humphreys is improving all the time, and won the last match he played. Expect plenty of 180s – Smith has scored 11 in his last three matches.
Luke Humphreys v Mike van Duivenbode
Humphreys is a far better player in every aspect, so expect a wide scoreline here.
Andy Boulton v Michael Smith
Smith turned up the heat in the last game by claiming victory in a tight match.
That tasty treble comes in at just under 160/1!
