Jackpot and Dutch Destroyer to turn on the style

The final session before Christmas could produce some fireworks on the Alexandra Palace stage, especially in the final contest of the evening between Adrian Lewis and Vincent van der Voort which should be a thriller.

It won’t be a classic because of how close it is, but simply the pace it is played at and the quality that will be produced as a result. These two men are among the fastest in the business and with each allowed to play at their natural rhythm then they should both play to their highest standards.

Lewis is heavy favourite at a best price of 1/12 with Bwin but interestingly the Dutchman has beaten him twice this season including on stage at the German Darts Masters so he will fancy his chances.

Maximums should be the order of the day in this one and although it seems like a lot over 11.5 is very feasible. To go beyond that mark is odds-on in most places but EVENS with Stan James and that looks to be great value.

The first match of the night is between James Wade and Andy Smith but this one is not set to be such a memorable affair. Wade is very fortunate to be here after scraping past Darren Webster last week but he should have no trouble with the Pie Man. Smith is renowned for his lack of quality on the big stage and Wade will not have to be at his best to sail into the last 16.

If he plays even his B Game it should be a comfortable one for the Machine but he is unpredictable against players you expect him to beat. I do not expect him to produce any fireworks and under 4.5 180s from Wade looks good value at EVENS with Paddy Power when it is odds-on elsewhere.

Finally Mervyn King facing Ricky Evans is an attractive looking contest with both playing well and good to watch. Evans was one of the stars of round one with his upset win over Ronnie Baxter but King was thoroughly impressive as well, whitewashing Darin Young and only dropping one leg in the process.

Evans certainly has a very bright future but an on-song King is likely to be too much for him at this stage of his young career. The former world finalist to win with a -1.5 handicap looks pretty handy at 4/6 with Bet365.
