Lewis v Jones: Wanderer to push Jackpot

Lewis and Jones are at the apex of the 180s column

After a couple of early scares Adrian Lewis faces another gritty opponent when he takes on the Wanderer from Wolverhampton, Wayne Jones. Lewis has been under par in victories over Robert Thornton and Nigel Heydon, and Jones will likely also provide a stiff challenge after two fairly routine victories against Scott McKenzie and Roland Scholten.

Lewis is yet again the firm favourite with the bookmakers to win at 1/4, however his performances so far have yet to justify such short odds. Jones meanwhile at 7/2 will fancy his chances if Lewis continues to play below his best. At the same time it’s very difficult to write off the reigning World Champion who can produce sublime darts at times which few players can live with. In a match Lewis is highly likely to progress, we may just see some fireworks and a tight game of darts along the way.

What is sure to happen is a flurry of 180s will be hit. Lewis and Jones are at the apex of the 180s column in the tournament so far with Lewis hitting 13 to Jones’ 12. Odds of 5/6 are on offer for more than 11.5 180s to be hit.

Bet 365 also go 11/10 we see more than 5 sets in the match. With Jones scoring power and the inconsistent play of Lewis so far, the evidence suggests the Wanderer will pick up more than one set in the match.

Another small novelty bet may interest some. Betfred and Ladbrokes go 12/1 that we see a 170 checkout. Lewis has already hit one and almost hit it again, missing the bull against Robert Thornton.

Recommended Bet:

Back over 5 sets @ 11/10 with Bet 365
