Best bets for Matchday 2
Tonight we welcome the second instalment of the new Remote Darts League and we asked darts fan Colin Savage for his best bets from the night's card. The action starts at 9.30 pm and can be watched live at https://bit.ly/RDL2020Watch
Jim Williams v Gary Robson
Our first game of the night sees the reigning World Dart Trophy champion take on the 2005 victor. Both men showed good form on night one, winning 7-4 and 7-2 respectivley. On his night 'Big Robbo' is a match for most, but given his 2020 form, and the scoring he is capable of, Williams will be favourite to make it two from two, and lead the table.
Best Bet: Jim Williams to win 7-4
Darryl Fitton v Tony O Shea
In our second game of the night, two legends of the sport and two great friends collide. This promises to be the game of the night, the head to head between these two giants of the sport in ranking events is currently 9-5 in O Shea's favour,the most memorable being a 6 sets to 4 victory in the Lakeside World Championships semi-final in 2009. Both will do well to break the others throw and this could very well be a share of the spoils for both men.
Best Bet: 6-6 draw
Paul Hogan v James Richardson
Our third game of the night sees 'Crocodile Dundee' take on 'Ruthless'. Hogan battled to a very good 6 all draw against an impressive O'Shea last night, whereas Richardson ran out a comfortable 7-4 winner over Alan Norris. Again a close game could be on the cards here and with advantage of throw, Hogan could well just nick this one.
Best Bet: Paul Hogan to win 7-5
Alan Norris v John Walton
Our fourth game of the night sees a former Lakeside runner up Alan Norris versus a man who went one better, former champion John 'Boy' Walton. After both suffering 7- 4 opening night defeats they'll be looking to bounce back immediately. It looks like being a close game early on, played at a good pace, but I can see Norris just pulling away at the end.
Best Bet: Alan Norris to win 7-4
Dean Winstanley v Wes Newton
Our fifth and final game of the night sees two men who have graced both the Lakeside and Ally Pally stages in world championships. Whilst neither player is in that rich vein of form from a few years ago, this is an intriguing contest as its hard to judge where both are in their comebacks. After opening night loses both will be desperate to get their league campaign on track. Winstanley will definitely be better having got the first night under his belt, and I've a sneaky suspicion we could see a close game, but with Newton just sneaking it
Best Bet: Wes Newton to win 7-5
This promises to be another great night of action and entertainment, and Mr Lakeside himself Richard Ashdown will be calling all the action and scores, as well as interviews with players to keep all you dart fans entertained from the comfort of your own home.
