The PDC Home Tour continues this week, with Stephen Bunting and Kim Huybrechts heading up a competitive Group 18 tonight.
The duo are joined by Englishman Nathan Derry, and Austria’s Harald Leitinger.
Our traders reckon this could be a close one, with Bunting Evens favourite to top the group, ahead of Belgian Huybrechts at 2/1. Derry is a 5/1 shot to win the quartet, with Leitinger the 6/1 outsider.
Stephen Bunting v Harald Leitinger (19:30)
The Bullet’s opening game is on paper, his easiest chance of a win. Leitinger has only been on the scene for a few years, and is currently ranked 135th by the PDC.
Bunting therefore is the 2/7 favourite, but we’ve seen plenty of shocks already in this tournament, so Leitinger shouldn’t be discounted at 12/5.
If Bunting finds his groove early on, however, it should be a one-sided encounter. There’s 3/1 about the former BDO world champion winning 5-2, with 2/1 saying he’s King of the Oche in this opening contest.
Stephen Bunting v Kim Huybrechts (21:00)
This is the game of the night, and both players know that defeat will likely spell an early exit from the tournament.
Will the Hurricane storm through again? This could be a tight one and 13/2 says Huybrechts wins 5-4, with 4/1 about Bunting winning it in the deciding leg.
Nathan Derry v Stephen Bunting (22:00)
This is the final match of the night, and Bunting will know what’s required if he’s still in the hunt to top the group.
We’re 6/5 about Bunting to ease through this one and win on the -2.5 leg handicap, while he’s 2/1 to wrap up the night by being crowned King of the Oche.
