Brendan Dolan will rock the boat at the Ally Pally when he straps Gary Anderson into the ejector seat and mashes the big red button one is only instructed to only utilise in emergencies.
The History Maker is the best price in our treble, with odds of 7/4 saying he knocks Anderson out of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship in the last-32.
Hot and cold Scot, Anderson, was comfortable in the opening round, averaging north of 97 in despatching Mark Dudbridge 3-0, but he’s lost five of his previous six meetings with Dolan, who was as impressive as his forthcoming adversary in thumping Colin Osborne by the same scoreline.
This superior record pumps untold value into his underdog price and darts punters simply must take advantage of this opportunity.
The second component of this enticing treble requires there to be more than 10.5 maximums tossed in Simon Whitlock’s tussle with little-known Finn Jarkko Komula.
Smiley caused one of the tournaments biggest shocks so far when he ousted Mark Walsh in a 3-1 win and a key factor in his unanticipated triumph was the six 180’s he hit.
Whitlock has a trained eye for seeking the lipstick too, flinging five of his own in round one. This total is, by and large, flimsy by his maximum-hitting standards, yet the number mustered by both players would still have seen this particular bet cop.
To ensure pay out on the treble, Michael van Gerwen’s duel with Kevin McDine must include more than 21.5 legs.
Individually this outcome pays out at 1/1 and, while Mighty Mike is largely expected to cruise to a 4-0 win, his inability to live up to his usually stunning standards against Zoran Lerchbacher in round one suggests the man affectionately known as SupaMac can squeeze a few legs out of him.
Defeating MVG would be some feat, but if McDine can replicate the high-scoring standards he set in banishing Wayne Jones from the competition, in which he had the announcer below out 37 ton-plus scores, including seven maximums, he could be in line to take a few legs.
Should he do so, over 21.5 legs in total is a certainty.
