Well after what could only be described as a horrorshow yesterday we're back for more punishment today. First 2 quarter finals on the menu and hopefully we can find a winner or 2 to get back on track.

Ray Barneveld v Simon Whitlock:

R3 - Barney bt Gary Anderson 4-0
Ave: 93.35
180's: 4
HC: 52
CO%: 29%

Whitlock bt Dave Chisnall 4-3
Ave: 91.07
180's: 4
HC: 152
CO%: 35%

Opening quarter final sees the born again Barneveld take on the aussie Simon Whitlock. Barneveld played tremendously in his opener but since then I thought he was very patchy v Dolan and played no more than ok v an extremely under performing Gary Anderson. I think he should be fav here but don't know if I would back him at 4/6. Whitlock again has played pretty well but at times he has been very erratic and there may be more than 1 reason for that. Lots of rumours flying around on twitter yesterday that he was almost not trying to hit 180's but who knows if thats true or not. Best of 9 now and I think it should be a decent match. Bet I like is the high check here as Whitlock especially is tremendous at the big outs. Hes had 16 consecutive matches hitting a ton plus finish and I think that may continue here. Barney also loves hitting the 156 out so hopeful in a long match they get plenty of chances.

Recommendation: 2pts HC over 131 @ 8/13 (Boils)

Phil Taylor v Andy Hamilton:

R3 - Taylor bt Robert Thornton 4-0
Ave: 97.18
180's: 2
HC: 131
CO%: 55%

Hamilton bt Terry Jenkins 4-1
Ave: 99.47
180's: 2
HC: 130
CO%: 52%

Taylor has yet to hit top form yet but he's had a nice draw thus far. However I feel he will have to up his game a bit as along with Van Gerwen I think Hamilton has been the best player of the remaining 8. Hes never beaten Taylor on tv but probably should have when he blew a 9-5 lead the last time they met. However Taylor was tremendous in those last 5 legs and Hamilton didnt do too much wrong. I fancy a decent match here but I've been wrong before and I think Hamilton may push him close. The bet I like is Hamilton on the handicap as +2.5 is a decent start. If he plays as he has been I think he can go close but not sure if he has the nerve to win the match straight up.

Recommendation: 2pts win Andy Hamilton +2.5 sets @ Evs (General)

Summary: Hopefully the 2 bets I like today can help get us back on the road to profit. Really like the look of the Hamilton handicap bet and hopefully the high check in the Whitlock match obliges as it normally does.

Best of luck to all and hopefully we can have some fun banter and winning bets as usual on here
