Darts Trader’s Tips: PDC Home Tour – Thursday 14th May

Odds and preview ahead of tonight’s matches

The PDC Home Tour continues tonight and Michael Smith is in action in Group 28.

The world number 5 is 4/5 to win the night and he’ll face competition from Mike van Duivenbode, Luke Humphries and Andy Boulton.

And our trader Edward Saunders has taken a look at the key matches.

Michael Smith v Mike van Duivenbode (19:30)

‘Bully Boy’ Smith is first up and he’s the clear favourite against his Dutch opponent at 1/4, with Van Duivenbode priced at 13/5.

Smith is the highest-ranked opponent ‘The Pigeon’ has ever faced but he could start strongly and Van Duivenbode is 21/10 to win the first leg.

Luke Humphries v Andy Boulton (20:00)

Humphries is the pre-match favourite to edge past Boulton, with our traders pricing him at 8/15. Boulton, meanwhile, is 11/8 to win the match.

The higher-ranked ‘Cool Hand Luke’ is also 2/1 to be crowned King of the Oche, which requires him to win the match, get the most 180s and score the highest checkout.

Michael Smith v Luke Humphries (21:00)

The two former world youth champions face off in what should be the best match of the evening. Smith is the pre-match favourite at 1/2 and he has the advantage of throwing first, while Humphries is going at 3/2.

Despite being the underdog, Humphries has quality which may require Smith to up his game. Smith to hit the most 180s is 11/10.
