Championship League Group Four Betting
The PDC players return to Championship League Darts action this midweek with five places still up for grabs in the Winners Group.
Gary Anderson, Phil Taylor and Paul Nicholson have already booked their place at finals day next Thursday (October 20th). Five more will join them over the course of the next 10 days.
Championship League Darts Group Four sees Ronnie Baxter, Vincent van der Voort and Jamie Caven enter the fray. They’ll be joined by Colin Lloyd, Simon Whitlock, Mark Walsh, Wayne Jones and Mervyn King at Crondon Park this Tuesday.
Whitlock has so far made it to two finals and a semi-final in three Championship League Darts groups. A run of form that sees him enter Group Four as the strong 5/2 favourite to win the group with bookmaker Bet365.
The Australian did, however, suffer a shock second round loss to Mark Hylton in Dublin at the World Grand Prix, and has been struggling to close matches out from winning positions of late. At the odds he is certainly worth opposing in the betting.
Meryn King had looked in good touch heading into the World Grand Prix and was perhaps a little unlucky to come up against an on-song Raymond van Barneveld in the opening round. Providing he picks up his form of ten days ago he looks a solid each-way bet at odds of 5/1.
However, its Vincent van der Voort whom I believe should carry your cash this Tuesday. The Dutchman posted some good results at the Dublin Players Championships last weekend and was unlucky to lose out to James Wade in a brilliant second round match in Dublin. He can be backed here at generous odds of 7/1.
Back Vincent van der Voort to win Group Four @ 7/1 each-way
