We're down to the last 32 of the UK Open, so that means 16 matches. Again, I can't do write-ups for all of them because of time restraints and the fact that the bookies seem to be having a lie-in today, so the darts tips might not be what you've come to expect from me. Rest assured, the darts tips are still as good as ever, there just isn't a write-up for all 16 games!
Joe Cullen to beat Peter Wright: 6/5 @ Betfair
Cullen is a dark horse in this draw. He's getting stronger and stronger in his PDC career and he'll see this as a decent draw. He had a tough match last night, but that should stand him in good stead for taking on Peter Wright. Wright, who has actually been on good form at the UK Open, is an enigma. He can put in some solid performances, but then follows it up with a stinker. if Cullen can get his scoring going, it should be a win and a place in the last 16 of the UK Open.

Co Stompe to beat Mark Webster: 5/4 @ Betfair
The draw hasn't been easy at the UK Open for Darts Betting Tips' favourite, Co Stompe. He had to face Simon Whitlock, but he was send him from Bolton with his tail between his legs and now he faces another Premier League opponent. Webster has been all over the place form-wise and Stompe showed a level of form, especially in the doubling, that should be enough to take care of the Welshman. Add in that the last time these two met on TV (excluding the Champions League, as it wasn't really televised), Stompe won 13-9 at the World Matchplay, so things tend to favour the Dutchman and the price looks a bit too big.

Andy Boulton to beat Matthew Edgar: 10/11 @ Betfair
Boulton, with his experience from the BDO, has shown some nice form, taking out Vincenvent van der Voort, who some people were putting up as a possible contender for the UK Open due to his good form in recent years. Well, Boulton's experience and form should be enguh to take out the less experienced Edgar. I think the bookies are way off the mark with this price and it's a darts tip to end darts tips! Well, maybe not quite, but I think it's a good 'un.

Mark Walsh to beat Denis Ovens: 4/5 @ Betfair
While both men had good wins in their third round matches, Walsh's win over King was impressive when you factor in that King has been looking to make a comeback. Oven's win over Painter, while impressive, shows how far Painter's form has fallen. Walsh is a generous price here and if he can keep his steady form going, he should be able to extinguish The Heat.
