Up to date World Darts Live streaming, with latest odds on James Wade v Andy Smith, Adrian Lewis v Vincent Van der Voort, Mervyn King v Ricky Evans, who are all in action from Alexandra Palace tonight (play resumes at 19:20 GMT).
The 2014 Darts World Championship is very much tipped in the favour of the bookmakers at the halfway stage after ante post hot pot Phil Taylor crashed out in the second round to young pretender Michael Smith.
WORLD DARTS – FREE BET OFFER
WILLIAM HILL EXCLUSIVE!
Firm announce £25 free bet on the darts
William Hill have announced they are offering free bets worth £25 to customers to spend on any darts match up at Alexandra Palace, PLUS the outright winner!
That shock result in itself probably has left the bookies in profit come rain or shine for the tournament outright.
Millions of pounds were staked across the board for Taylor to deliver the goods at Evens and even one huge bet was struck of £100,000 for a Ladbrokes customer on the Power to beat Smith at 1/50.
Adrian Lewis and James Wade are the headline acts on Monday evening in the last session of the World Championship before the tournament takes its Christmas break.
Third seed Lewis will be well aware of the chance he has now to go all the way in this competition after Taylor was given the heave-ho and he takes on quick fire Dutchman Vincent van der Voort.
This will certainly be a match to tune in to as both players don’t waste any time getting their darts in the board.
The two-time World Champion came through doing handstands against Dennis Smith in the first round while Van der Voort was far too good for Matt Clarke but this clash will be a different kettle of fish.
Set to kick-off at 10:30pm this evening, Lewis can be backed at 1/20 to get the job done but punters will be fearful of getting involved after what happened to Taylor.
Lewis will have too many guns for the Dutchman but when on song he can mix it with the likes of Lewis, so any whitewash scorelines should be eliminated from punters thinking.
There doesn’t seem much value lurking, but 4/1 at 12/5 could be a bet to bring a reward.
It would take a brave man to rule out Wade also making a name for himself at this tournament with his side of the draw opening up now.
He takes on Englishman Andy Smith in the opening match on stage at 7pm.
Wade did struggle hugely against Darren Webster in the first round, who missed six match darts to KO Wade before the three-time semi-finalist regained his composure.
Despite that dour blip, punters are keen to get Wade on side tonight, taking the skinny 1/8 for him to come through with the 4-0 whitewash at 2/1 also seeing plenty of cash.
