We go through the whole opening round of the Alexandra Palace event, with five fantastic odds from William Hill in this acca
With the 2016 PDC World Darts Championship almost upon us, Bookies.com pick five top tips from the first round draw (which takes place from December 17-23) to feature in this fantastic acca with tournament sponsor William Hill.
The below are in order of play…
JAMIE LEWIS to beat Daryl Gurney @ 4/5 with William Hill
Welshman Lewis is one of the rising stars in the darting world, and has already reached a major televised event quarter-final – at this year’s World Grand Prix.
Rasta sits five places above Northern Irishman Gurney, who has only played in one World Championship before in this organisation, in the PDC rankings, which is why this price is highly enticing.
BRENDAN DOLAN to beat Kyle Anderson @ evens with William Hill
Another player from the Emerald Isle features in our acca, but this time in favour of Dolan, who has surprisingly been placed as the outsider with his match-up with Australia’s Anderson.
The Original has won only once at a World Championship, and has never got past a televised last 16 before, while Brendan Dolan has reached the latter stages of major events many a time so his experience should see him through with ease.
ALAN NORRIS to beat Robert Thornton @ 2/1 with William Hill
Don’t be fooled by Norris’ relatively low ranking, as he only just crossed over to the PDC earlier this year.
Chuck was a runner-up of the BDO version of this event in 2014, so knows how to go far on the big stage, and has beaten veteran Thornton a few months a too.
CRISTO REYES to beat Wes Newton @ 8/11 with William Hill
Spaniard Reyes was one of the talking points of last year’s competition, getting to the last 16, and he has been drawn with his first round opponent Newton once again.
Warrior Newton has dropped in performance since at his peak a couple years ago, so The Spartan is expected to triumph once more.
MAX HOPP to beat Benito van de Pas @ 13/10 with William Hill
Another youngster tipped for the top in the next few years, German teenager Hopp comes into this competition fresh from winning the World Youth Championship, following in the footsteps of established stars Michael Smith and Keegan Brown.
Hopp wowed fans last year too, after knocking out three-time major winner Mervyn King in the first round, and has the ability to see off Dutchman Big Ben too.
Acca almost 42/1!
Stake £5 on this fantastic fivefold, and if all our selections come off, you’ll receive a return of £214.53, making nearly £210 profit with William Hill!
