Three great prices to take for World Grand Prix second round

Van der Voort

Darting stars have fallen like flies so far in the 'double in, double out' Dublin event, so Bookies.com find three more shocks to back

Multiple World Grand Prix champions Phil Taylor and James Wade, as well as top darting names Peter Wright, Raymond van Barneveld and Stephen Bunting have all fallen at the first hurdle of this tricky tournament.

The early exits of the above 2015 Premier League stars will no doubt give the low-ranked players hope of causing more shocks. So, in light of that, we have picked out five top price odds to take for a chance to win big in the second round.

Kim Huybrechts beats Michael van Gerwen @ 4/1 with 888.com
Belgian Huybrechts is somewhat of a scourge to Mighty Mike ever since the young duo first met in the PDC in 2012. Van Gerwen may be the reigning champion of this competition, but lost their last battle and has a habit of being swept away by The Hurricane at major events.

In the last two years, Huybrechts has won meetings in the Premier League, Grand Slam Of Darts and World Cup of Darts in the doubles event, so certainly knows how to topple the Dutchman on the big stage.

Vincent van der Voort beats Terry Jenkins 3-1 @ 4/1 with Coral
As Bookies.com predicted, the Dutch Destroyer upset all the odds to knock out 11-time champion Taylor in straight sets after a thrilling performance, and he is now up against 52-year-old Jenkins.

Van der Voort has won their last three battles, and yet is surprisingly the 5/4 match outsider with BoyleSports, but the rapid thrower is an even more enticing price to carry on his fine form and triumph 3-1.

Ian White beats Gary Anderson @ 11/4 with Sky Bet
While world and Premier League champion Anderson looked back to his best against Scottish compatriot John Henderson in the first round on Monday night, he has had a miserable summer.

Following White’s whitewash of Jamie Caven, Diamond had moved up to the top eight of the PDC world rankings and is a great chance to beat The Flying Scotsman, who he defeated in their last major tournament – the UK Open in 2014.
