World Darts Championship Day 13: Voltage to surge through tonight?
Tonight marks the final batch of last-16 matches at the 2019 PDC World Darts Championship, and that means the end of the road for three more tungsten titans.
Reigning champion Rob Cross is the star attraction, although it’s Jamie Lewis’ clash with Dave Chisnall which has the potential to be the game of the night.
We’ve previewed each of the matches from the evening session in our daily darts tips.
Ryan Searle v Michael Smith
Searle has played well to reach this stage. But it’s hard to see him going much further without considerably upping his tournament average against such a quality opponent.
The Somerset-slinger has yet to average over 90 in any of his three matches, while his checkout percentage requires some work too. Smith also boasts a far better scoring game.
Jamie Lewis v Dave Chisnall
Strap yourselves in, because this has all the makings of an Ally Pally classic. Not only are both of these players bang in form in North London, they also both love hitting the treble bed.
Rob Cross v Luke Humphries
The shocks continued at Ally Pally yesterday, as Luke Humphries delivered a 4-1 walloping to dancing Dimitri van den Bergh. Now he’ll pit his tungsten wits against defending champion Rob Cross.
And after Voltage recorded back-to-back ton-plus averages in his second and third round matches – dropping just a single set in the process – it could be the end of the round for Cool Hand.
Indeed, Cross has been one of the standout performers in a tournament which has seen more seeds scattered than ever before.
Neither player has been particularly prolific on the trebles so far, either, with Voltage often preferring to switch down to T19. We make Under 11.5 180s a 10/11 chance.
