Bet of the Day: Durrant to dismantle Fitton in the BDO
Richard Marsh | 10 January 2018
Reigning champion is in round two
The BDO World Championships continues today at Frimley Green in Surrey.
It’s time for the second round, and that means there are some quality matches in store.
The highlight is reigning champion Glen Durrant’s clash with two-time semi-finalist Darryl Fitton.
The pair have met several times down the years, and Duzza has dominated. Fitton usually takes a set or two for himself though, so Coral’s Bet of the Day is Durrant v Fitton over 5.5 Sets @ 5/4.
Duzza v the Dazzler
The commentators will need to be alert to avoid tripping up between Duzza Durrant and The Dazzler Fitton.
The duo have met 10 times in the last five years, with Durrant winning eight of those contests.
That’s included each of the last five, which goes some way to explaining his 2/7 price to win the match.
But aside from last year’s British Open where he lost 4-0, Fitton always manages at least two sets in this match-up.
Similarly, Fitton could be worth a look on the +2.5 sets handicap at Evens.
Could the Dazzler surprise?
The unusual thing about Durrant versus Fitton is the two times when the latter has prevailed.
On those occasions, the man from Stockport won 4-0 and 5-0.
So if there’s a longshot to be found, it could be the 40/1 on Fitton to cause a big shock and win 4-0.
