Grand Slam Betting: Chisnall v Jenkins
Opening night losers Dave Chisnall and Terry Jenkins will be desperate to get points on the board or else face an early departure from Wolverhampton as they face off on Sunday Night.
Dave Chisnall showed some terrific form despite a last leg defeat against James Wade, and unlike his other recent televised displays, had reasonable success on the doubles, with a checkout percentage of 80%. Jenkins meanwhile continued his miserable run of form after being comfortably defeated 5-1 by an unimpressive Justin Pipe. Jenkins posted a pathetic 17% checkout ratio and failed to hit a single maximum in his defeat, as his woes continued.
The St. Helens man opens the betting as 1/2 favourite, and has kicked on since an out of sorts display at the Grand Prix in Dublin, picking up his first PDC trophy with a Pro Tour success in Crawley a week ago, and he showed glimpses of top play against Wade in spite of defeat. Jenkins is available at 7/4, as his slide down the World Rankings continues. The Bull will be hard pushed to live with the power scoring of Chisnall and will hope the St. Helens man has another run in with double trouble.
“Chizzy” is available at odds of 8/11 to land the most 180s, while Jenkins comes in at 11/4 and the draw 7/2. Dave has shown he can score with the best in the PDC, hitting eight maximums despite the ‘double in’ format in Dublin against Alan Tabern, and looks good money to land his odds on price.
Chisnall is also available at 5/6 on the handicap market to win by more than one leg. The darting public will firmly be in Chisnall’s corner after last night’s displays by both players, and you will be hard pushed to question why. Jenkins will need to hope the nerves of Chisnall kick in on the doubles and he can find some of his old consistency. The formbook suggests though it will be Chisnall who comes out on top.
