Well folks here we are… the penultimate day of darts on the PDC at Home tour. As we predicted yesterday it was Gary Anderson who cruised through to the finals with three wins out of three.
He’s in red hot form so far in the competition and has won all nine of his matches. There were particularly impressive wins over Chizzy 6-3 and Jelle Klaasen 6-2. Klaasen, in the end, finished runner up and qualified for tomorrow’s final group.
Rob Cross is just not playing particularly well of late. He is averaging around 83 so far which isn’t good. He had a family bereavement recently and hasn’t been able to practice as much as he would have liked.
As for Cullen, he comes into this match in great form. He’s averaged 106.65 in the group stage first time round and nearly 95 second time round. So, I’m going for the outsider Cullen here. The 6-4 win to Cullen is 13/2, but Cullen to win the match outright looks a good price.
Both players have won all six of their matches in this competition so far. Head to head they are two apiece. This going to be a tight one no doubt about it, but I’m going for the in-form Aspinall just to edge it. Aspinall to win a close one 6-4 is @ 9/2.
Cullen has performed brilliantly in this competition and topped his group, seeing off Gerwyn Price. He hit an average, as I already mentioned, of 106.65 which was very impressive. Cullen to win a cracker 6-4 is 11/2. But I fancy Joe Cullen to win the match outright at the price on offer.
With Crossy’s lack of practice taken into consideration I am going to side with Nathan Aspinall here. Aspinall picked up a victory in their recent meeting in the Premier League so I’m going with a 6-3 win to Aspinall at 11/2. I also expect lots of 180s in this one. So, check out over 5.5 180s in the total 180s market at 11/10.
Another tight match here in a night that is littered with them. I am going to side with Aspinall again here. Cullen has the better head to head record recently but I just think Aspinall is the better player between the two and Cullen can be inconsistent sometimes. So, an Aspinall win by a 6-4 scoreline.
I think 6/5 is a big price on Clayton here. The World number 15 has been in inspired form. It is definitely worth a punt.
Dave Clark’s best bets for Thursday’s PDC Home Tour matches:
In terms of my best bets of the night, I think Aspinall to win the group at 13/8 is a good bet
Another one I like is Over 5.5 180s in the Cross v Aspinall match at 11/10
And, finally, have a look at Joe Cullen to beat Rob Cross in the opener at 11/8
Best of luck with your bets folks and stay safe!
