Van Barneveld throwcast v Lewis at 4/1 to finish on double 16 or 8
Darting giants Raymond van Barneveld and Adrian Lewis take to the Alexandra Palace oche tonight for a terrific 2017 PDC World Championship third round showdown.
It is from this match too that Coral have picked out their latest bet of the day, with tasty odds of 4/1 available on Dutch great Barney winning and finishing the match on double 16 or 8.
So, read on to find out just why you should take this hand-picked price…
Van Barneveld has arguably been the best player at the current 2017 Worlds, having beaten first two opponents Robbie Green and Alan Norris without dropping a set. In fact he’s only lost two legs, against the latter, as he averaged 103.59.
In both of those matches too, five-time world champion Barney hit double 8 to finish them off, which is right next to his favourite double 16 – which also qualifies for this bet.
Barney has mental edge over Jackpot
On top of that, the last time he faced Lewis – at the recent 2016 Players Championship Finals – Van Barneveld beat Jackpot 6-4, with double 16 being the final nail in the coffin for the Englishman.
The 49-year-old also has a fine record over Lewis, having won 32 of their 55 tussles – with two of them being draws. While, he has also claimed five of their last six.
All of those came this year, and in big events such as the aforementioned Players Championship Finals, World Grand Prix, World Cup of Darts, Premier League and Perth Masters. That implies that Barney is made for the big stage, and has the mental edge over counterpart Jackpot.
