There’s more from the PDC Home Tour this evening, with 2012 world championship runner-up Andy Hamilton headlining Group 15.
The Hammer won back his Tour Card at the start of 2020 and is joint-second favourite to top tonight’s standings at at 3/1 alongside Scott Baker.
Can either of the them upset 3/2 favourite Darren Webster, or will 4/1 outsider Bradley Brooks spring a shock? We’ve previewed three of the evening’s main clashes below.
Bradley Brooks v Andy Hamilton (20:30)
Our traders can barely split these two in the outright betting so it’s should come as little surprise that they’re expecting a close run thing here. Brooks and Hamilton are both chalked up at 5/6 to win the match.
That could have something to do with the fact that Brooks is throwing first in the contest, which means all he needs to claim the points is to win on his throw over the best-of-nine legs format.
Easier said than done, of course. But you can get 4/1 about Bamm Bamm taking the spoils 5-4, while we go 2/3 about Over 2.5 maximums in a match-up that should see both players bring out the best in each other.
Darren Webster v Scott Baker (21:00)
Webster is a shade of odds-on for all his fixtures tonight, with this match against Baker his second shortest price of evening. The Demolition Man is 8/15 to see off Baker, who himself is given an 11/8 chance.
Norfolk-thrower Webster hasn’t been up to the same level which saw him reach three major quarter-finals in 2018 of late, though, and Baker could push him all the way. We go 8/11 for there to be Over 7.5 Legs.
Andy Hamilton v Darren Webster (22:00)
Once upon a time this could well have been a world championship classic. Now we’ll have to settle for a humdinger over nine legs, with Webster marked up as 2/3 favourite against 11/10 for Hamilton.
The Hammer will have the throw in the opening leg and is duly priced at 2/3 to win it. There’s also every chance the 53-year-old could dominate the 180 market too.
Hamilton has hit more maximums than his opponent already in 2020 and is an 11/10 chance to score the Most 180s in this one.
