Lewis v Part: Merciless Maple to punish any lapses

The Canadian is one of the most experienced players in the sport

Adrian Lewis is looking for revenge when he takes on John Part this Friday evening, after the Canadian knocked him out in the first round of the World Grand Prix just over a month ago.

There isn’t a better sight in darts than an on-song Adrian Lewis. When he gets it right – as he did against Co Stompe in the group stages – he’s unstoppable. But the occasions on which he has ‘got it right’ have been too few and too far between in the second half of this year. Perhaps though, he is just finding his stride in time to defend his World Championship title.

If Lewis doesn’t hit his straps this Friday, however, Part is just the type to punish him. The Canadian is one of the most experienced players in the sport and can penalise shortcomings in anyone’s game. Following his win over Aaron Monk he spoke of the importance of taking the rough with the smooth, and rolling with the punches. While a barrage of 180s from Lewis can cripple most players Part will scrap to the death. The match between the two in Dublin six weeks ago provides a perfect case in point.

I cannot advise a bet against Lewis despite Part being available to back at a tempting 4/1 with Paddy Power. If Lewis plays as he can throughout the match then it doesn’t matter how gritty Darth Maple is, he’ll win.

However, the 11/10 available on Part winning a minimum of seven legs is certainly worth backing. Over the longer format Lewis is certain to have dips in his form, and when he does the three-time World Champion will take those legs.
