Sunday’s Darts Grand Prix Previews

Kyle Anderson v Cristo Reyes:

Kyle Anderson is continuing his plight to becoming the number one Australian dartist, and with the Spaniard Cristo Reyes standing in his way, the Aussie will fancy his chances of meeting his namesake, Gary, in the second round. Back Anderson to win this 2-0.

Ian White v Kim Huybrechts:

This looks tight on paper and will probably come down to a deciding set. Huybrechts can beat anyone on his day, but with his double hitting often proving problematic, back White to win this 2-1.

James Wade v Terry Jenkins:

Wade looked good in the Champions League of Darts, and despite losing heavily to Taylor in the semi-final, ‘The Machine’ can expect a good run at the Grand Prix. Doubles in will suit the measure of Wade more, with Jenkins failing to get a set on the board.

Gerwyn Price v Benito Van De Pas:

Van de Pas is continuing to improve on the PDC circuit and is more than capable of getting the better of an unpredictable Price. Over 2.5 sets seems a sensible bet with Van de Pas stealing it late on.

Adrian Lewis v Jelle Klaasen:

This is one of the best match ups of the first round, and with the doubles to check-in format, Lewis may find himself under pressure from the Dutchman. Back this one to go to throw, with Lewis prevailing late on.

Robert Thornton v Stephen Bunting:

Thornton can be so strong on double twenty, meaning the doubles to check-in format may suit him down to the ground. Bunting can beat anyone when he finds his rhythm, but may find Thornton hard to shake off. Back this to go over 2.5 sets.

Gary Anderson v Jamie Caven:

Caven will struggle to cope with Anderson in Dublin, as the back-to-back World Champion flexes his muscles. Back this one to finish 2-0 to the Scot.

Mervyn King v Raymond Van Barneveld:

An old-school classic finishes the day of darts as Barney looks to avenge an old rival. Both will be scrappy on the opening doubles, however once the game warms up back Barney to prevail 2-1.
