Darts fans will be treated to some more top quality arrows from tonight’s PDC Home Tour fixtures, with Jelle Klaasen, Gabriel Clemens, Ryan Meikle and Gavin Carlin doing battle in Group Seven.
We’re all set for six more thrilling matches, three of which we’ve previewed below.
Gabriel Clemens v Ryan Meikle (19:30)
The opening match of the night sees two of the sport’s most exciting newcomers take to the oche, even if the 36-year-old Clemens is something of a late bloomer on the darts scene.
The German Giant has put in some seriously impressively performances over the last 18 months and will go off as the 4/9 favourite for this one. Meikle, who is slowly making a name for himself, is a 13/8 chance.
One thing we’ve seen from the PDC Home Tour is that results don’t always go according to the odds. And while we think this one could, we reckon it’ll be tight. Our traders go 5/6 about Over 7.5 Legs.
Jelle Klaasen v Gabriel Clemens (20:45)
If Clemens versus Meikle was the aperitif, then this is a succulent main course of darting deliciousness. Both players are capable of elite level arrows on top form, so we’re hoping for a top notch encounter here.
As is the case with all the German’s matches tonight, he’ll start as favourite. We have him down as a 4/7 shot with Klaasen, who has failed to impress in several recent floor tournaments, back at 13/10.
Regardless of who comes out on top, Clemens could dominate the 180 battle with 87 maximums to his name in the last 12 months. He’s 6/5 to hit the lipstick more times than his opponent tonight.
Jelle Klaasen v Ryan Meikle (21:20)
We’ve seen upsets aplenty in the PDC Home Tour so far. Nobody, not least us, foresaw relatively unknown Welshman Nick Kenny besting Luke Humphrey and Devon Petersen to top Group Five on Tuesday.
While we’re not suggesting Meikle will do the same this evening, he could dish out a surprise defeat to the out-of-form Klaasen in the penultimate match of the night. He’s 13/10 versus 4/7 for the Dutchman
The Barber, who has cut down his competitors to win a pair of Development Tour events already in 2020, is priced at 5/1 to record a narrow 5-3 victory against his more experienced opponent.
