Chisnall v Tabern: Chizzy to get revenge

there is no double in format, which should undoubtedly help Chisnall

After meeting only two months back in the World Grand Prix Dave Chisnall and Alan Tabern clash again in the first round of the Cash Converters Players Championship. Chisnall missed 13 match darts to defeat Tabern in Dublin, as he stole a victory in the battle of St. Helens.

Dave Chisnall opens up as a firm 4/9 favourite, while Tabern comes in as the firm outsider at 7/4. This time around there is no double in format, which should undoubtedly help Chisnall. The former Lakeside runner up is among the most prolific treble 20 hitters in darts at this moment, and it is unlikely Tabern will have the firepower in his locker to keep pace. The Saint has tumbled down the rankings recently having suffered numerous early round exits on television this year.

Despite also only playing 3 matches in Wolverhampton, Chizzy amassed a creditable nine maximums, and also posted eight in his match against Tabern alone, in spite of the double in format. Tabern meanwhile hit only a paltry one in their encounter at the Grand Prix, providing basis for punters to back the 31 year old at a deserved 4/9 to land the most 180s.

Regardless of missed doubles, which can be expected from the number 9 seed, expect him to post the highest average at odds of 2/5.

Although Tabern won at the Grand Prix, returning to the traditional format will suit Chisnall more, and recent struggles suggest the Saint shouldn’t trouble him too much here, regardless of first round nerves.
