Nicholson v Tabern Betting

The Aussie Geordie has a terrific pedigree

Paul Nicholson and Alan Tabern will be in confident mood after comfortable victories in the first round of the Ladbrokes  World Championships. Both players ran out easy 3-1 victors albeit against poor opposition and with Raymond Van Barneveld eliminated, the pair will view this as a terrific chance to make a run to at least the Quarter Finals where it is likely Phil Taylor will await.

The Aussie Geordie has a terrific pedigree having won the 2009 Players Championship and reached three televised quarter finals this year, is a justifiably huge ¼ favourite. Tabern clocks in as a firm outsider at 100/30 with tournament sponsors Ladbrokes. The Saint has had his fair share of struggles as of late with one win on tv all year prior to his victory over preliminary round winner Christian Perez.

Very few people, however, will be tempted by such short odds on Nicholson, and he is priced up a much larger 6/5 to win by more than 2.5 sets against a struggling Tabern. The Saint’s only victory on tv this year at the Grand Prix saw Dave Chisnall miss 12 match darts, Nicholson meanwhile will not afford Tabern the same luxury, with his trademark finishing evident in his only major win at the 2009 Players Championship where he hit four ton plus finishes to take out Phil Taylor.

The correct score market may also provide some value. BoyleSports go 3/1 that Nicholson notches up a 4-1 victory. In a match that few believe will be close, many will be enticed by a large price for what is a widely predicted outcome for the final match score.
