Start of R2 this evening sees 3 matches to kick us off. Hopefully continue the decent run we're on and 1 or 2 interesting bets seem to be on the agenda.

Wayne Jones v Roland Scholten:
R1 - Jones bt Scott MacKenzie 3-1
3 dart ave: 94.49
180's: 8
Doubles hit: 29%
HC: 81

Scholten bt Jamie Caven 3-1
3 dart ave: 83.79
180's: 7
Doubles hit: 36%
HC: 138

Opening match sees Jones take on Scholten in an interesting encounter. I thought Jones was a bit erratic in his opening match mixing some high scoring with some really slack spells as well. Scholten had a much lower average and again mixed some big 180 hitting with a lot of 45's and 59's. I think Jones should justify favouritism here at 4/11 as Scholten doesn't look the player he used to be but it might not be a walk in the park. Bet I like the look of is the 180's market as I think this match might produce a few. Jones had 8 in his opener in 16 legs and Scholten had 7 in the same number of legs so the forms there and I think the line is just a bit too low.

Recommendation: 1.5pt win over 10.5 maxes @ 5/6 (General)

Adrian Lewis v Robert Thornton:
R1 - Lewis bt Nigel Heydon 3-2
3 dart ave: 96.41
180's: 7
Doubles hit: 45%
HC: 134

Thornton bt Ian White 3-1
3 dart ave: 93.35
180's: 5
Doubles hit: 34%
HC: 101

Lewis might consider himself to be a bit lucky to still be in this championship but the reigning champ dug deep to come from 2 sets down in his opener. He came within a leg of defeat but probably produced his best stuff when his back was against the wall and I was impressed with his attitude. Thornton played his best match in ages on the big stage to come through a very tough opener against Ian White. Showed some really good bursts of scoring and doubled ok which is often his achilles heel. Prices in the matches look spot on as Lewis deserves to be a hot favourite but I think there is a good bet to be had. I have Lewis down as the best hitter of high checks along with Simon Whitlock and the market for that takes my fancy. Thornton himself is well capable but Lewis is probably going to win more legs so he might be the man to land the odds for us.

Recommendation: 1.5pts win over 125.5 High Check @ 5/6 (General)

Wes Newton v Justin Pipe:
R1 - Newton bt Kurt Van De rijck 3-0
3 dart ave: 93.3
180's: 2
Doubles hit: 39%
HC: 108

Pipe bt Sean Reed 3-1
3 dart ave: 88.65
180's: 2
Doubles hit: 50%
HC: 62

Last evening match sees one of my ante post fancies Newton take on the slowest player in the game in Justin Pipe. Newton played ok in R1 but the match could easily have been 3-1 or 3-2 if he hadn't hit crucial finishes at vital times. That bodes well and if his scoring is slightly stronger then I think he might be the likliest of winners here. Pipe ground his way through a very poor match that seemed to last about 2 days in R1 and at the moment he isn't bringing his fantastic floor form to the stage. There's no doubting his results this year as he has won 3 floor events and been r/up in another 2 but I've yet to saw wow when seeing him play on tv. It might just be that he is a player who cannot do it under the lights. I hope that Newton wins this for my ante post shout but on this evening's game I can't find a worthwhile bet.

Recommendation: No Bet

Summary: 2 bets in the first 2 matches then I'll probably fall asleep when Pipe comes on stage. All fancies and banter as welcome as usual and may all the bets you place be winning ones.
