Well, a bit of a blow on day one as neither Whitlock or Wright played anywhere near their best. But that's the danger of short format darts and it's why we're taking it easy with our betting tips and bets just now.
We're going for a big price in day two.
Bill Davis to beat Raymond van Barneveld - 6/1 @ Blue Square.
Davis isn't the top player that Barney is, naturally, but Barneveld has been playing some unbelievably poor darts at the moment, losing to an unknown in the Players Championship on Monday. If the darts aren't going right for Barneveld, he might just chuck in the towel, so the 6/1 presents a decent value bet for us.
Recommend .5 unit @ 6/1
As I say, we don't want to be going wading in with lots of bets or big bets at the moment, we'll wait until the format gets a bit longer for that, but we still think that Davis is the best value bet of the day.
Good luck and we'll be back with day three picks tomorrow.
