  • Lewis achieved a perfect leg in last year’s event
  • No player has hit more than Jackpot at the Worlds (two)

Nine-darter in Anderson v Lewis final at 5/1

Ahead of what promises to be an absolute belter of a 2016 PDC World Darts Championship final, going by what we’ve seen at the competition this year so far, Coral have picked out a terrific price for our bet of the day.

Fantastic odds of 5/1 say that there will be a nine-dart finish in the Sunday final between title holder Gary Anderson and two-time winner Adrian Lewis.

Read on for more specific reasons why you should back this brilliant bet…

Anderson and Lewis have previous WDC perfect legs

Defending champion Anderson comes into this clash on the back of just throwing a perfect leg in his 6-0 thrashing of Jelle Klaasen in the second semi-finals, and after his performances this tournament we know he is more than capable of it again.

The Flying Scotsman averaged a whopping 107.32 against the Dutchman, while he has dropped just two sets in his five-match run to the final.

Lewis, meanwhile, happens to boast the joint-most amount of nine-darters in World Darts Championship history across the PDC and BDO, with two – along with the man he just conquered in the semis, Raymond van Barneveld.

Jackpot can fire another against Anderson in final

Jackpot, a two-time champion here, coincidentally managed to get one the last time he and Anderson battled in the final at the Alexandra Palace back in 2011, while his other came last year against Barney.

On top of that, the man from Stoke has similarly been on top form, seeing off the likes of Van Barneveld and Peter Wright at a loss of just five sets, and so has the ability to produce more magic on Sunday.

So, what are you waiting for? Snap up this 5/1 price for another nine-darter while you can!
