Part no pushover for Newton

Sunday evening starts with a really classy affair between former World Champ John Part and the ever-impressive Wes Newton who is the clear favourite to make it through to the last 16.

The Warrior is the deserved favourite having been much the more consistent player over the last few years and is far higher up the Order of Merit than the Canadian. However, it is Darth Maple who has had the better of the head-to-head between the two, by a considerable margin. Part has won 11 of the 14 matches they have played and that will give him plenty of confidence heading into this one.

Part will not be hitting the heights when it comes to averages but he rarely is on the wrong end of a thrashing and keeps games tight even when he is not performing at his best. Newton also wasn’t playing as well as he can in round one so this should be a close one. Over 5.5 sets looks tremendous value at over 5/6 with Bet365.

The second match of the evening sees Mark Webster taking on John Henderson and the latter could well cause another shock having knocked out Dave Chisnall in round one. Webster has had a terrible year on tour and only narrowly scraped through to this stage after a tense contest with Mensur Suljovic.

Henderson had to perform well to beat Chisnall and if he repeats his 90-plus average then he has every chance of defeating the Welshman. The Scot looks excellent value at 11/8 with Sky Bet to make it through to the last 16 for the first time in his career.

The final match is set to be a one-sided affair between new tournament favourite Michael van Gerwen and Kevin McDine. The Geordie has no chance in this one I’m afraid to say and will be totally blown away by the Dutchman. MVG is odds-on in places to win 4-0 and looks great value at 6/5 with Betfred for the whitewash.
