12:15 Madars Razma v Toru Suzuki: Suzuki Most 180s

The Latvian Madars Razma will look favourably on this draw against the Japanese qualifier Toru Suzuki in this Round 1 encounter. It’s tough to determine what kind of standard Suzuki will bring to the oche, although he has qualified through a Tour which has produced talent like Seigo Asada.

With this kind of uncertainty, I’d be looking at the 180s market for a bet. Madars Razma is a notorious switcher to the treble 19s, so that makes Suzuki a nifty outside punt to land the most maximums in the match.

14:05 Ryan Murray v Lourence Ilagan: Murray to win

This is Ryan Murray’s debut at the World Championship having gained his first PDC Tour card at Q-school in January and he faces Asian Tour qualifier Lourence Ilagan, who is making his fifth appearance on the wonderful Ally Pally stage. Ilagan is very capable on his day and will have experience at the tournament on his side, so don’t write off the Filipino’s chances of victory here.

Going off his Pro Tour performance this year, Murray looks that bit more consistent with an overall average of 91.93 to Ilagen’s 85.16. That kind of scoring is key and given this, I reckon the Scot should get over the line. It should be tight though.


20:05 Ryan Searle v Danny Lauby: Correct Score – Searle 3-0

Danny Lauby makes his debut at the World Championships and the American has a tough assignment against an in-form and more experienced Ryan Searle. Searle has a decent record in the World Championship and made it to the third round last year. He also got as far as Round 4 in 2019 and I fancy Searle to win easy, keeping Lauby blank in the process.
