Another great day for us, going 2-1, with a total profit of +3.75, bringing us to a running total of +5.35 for the UK Open. Not bad at all, if I do say so myself.
It was a strange day of darts, with Wayne Mardle getting stuffed by Phil Taylor and really only Gary Anderson showing some great form out of the favourites for the title aside from Taylor. But we can't complain, as we're on a winning streak and the fourth round matches have gave us some nice betting opportunities.
Before we start dishing out the tips for the third day of the UK Open, I want to mention the bookmakers that will give you some free money for depositing there. Is there anything better than free money? Well, more free money. So, use my tips along with these free sign-up offers and we'll keep the great run going!
Victor Chandler as a well established name in sports betting and they really get behind the great sport of darts.

There's not a better offer available and I've taken advantage of this for tonight's tips, and I think you should too.

Now, let's get onto the tips.
Dennis Smith to beat Denis Ovens: 11/8 @
I think we landed a nice touch with Dennis Smith in round three, as he is one of the mid-upper tier plays, just like Denis Ovens. I don't think Ovens was too convincing against Arron Monk, while Smith seemed decent enough in seeing off Colin Monk. I honestly believe Dennis Smith has the beating of Denis Ovens and I think the 11/8 is a fantastic price, as I'd have it much closer between the two.
Recommend: 2 units @ 11/8
A strange price considering the inconsistent form Klaasen is in. Jones has been playing solid darts and seems to flourish in environments like the UK Open. Klaasen blows hot and cold and Jones might be able to pounce on him from the get go. His form in floor tournaments should carry him through this match and I think the price is far too good to pass up.
Recommend: 2 units @ 11/10
Both men are evenly matched, but I'm worried about how Lewis is finishing after his season in the Premier League. Osborne loves the tournament and had a good result in his first match of the tournament, destroying Dylan Duo 9-3. Lewis had a good win, too, but the price of him is just shocking condiering who he's playing and his recent form. Ossie should run well if the draw favours him and I wouldn't be surprised to see him go deep if he can avoid the likes of Taylor and Whitlock.
Recommend: 1.5 units @ 7/5
That's all we have at the moment, but with the World Cup just around the corner, I wanted to mention this:
If, like me, you're wanting to be on the World Cup, remember to take advantage of the free bets all the bookies are dishing out.
