PDC World Darts: English trio primed to dismantle Aussie raiders

| 18.12.2014

The PDC World Darts Championship is in full flow and as we head into the weekend, we have a double header of darting delights for us at Alexandra Palace.

And ahead of the first Saturday action of the tournament we have picked out a trio of Englishman who can secure straightforward victories against challengers from Down Under.

Have a look at this tasty 17/2 treble that could get your weekend off to a flyer.

Steve Beaton -1.5 sets v Kyle Anderson @ 6/4

The Bronzed Adonis dispatched Anderson with ease when the pair met in the opening round of this competition two years ago, and the gap between them hasn’t really closed since.

Beaton sits 41 places above the Australian in the world rankings and should be able to negotiate a passage to the second round without too much of a fuss.

Neither have been in great form this season, but the world number 20 has been solid if unspectacular when competing at the highest level.

Justin Pipe -2.5 sets v Loz Ryder @ Evens

Ok, he may hail from Derby, but the fact that Loz Ryder now lives in Perth he as classed as an Aussie as we continue on our crusade for a clean sweep in the darting ashes.

Ryder was smashed 6-0 by last year’s finalist Peter Wright in the Sydney Darts Masters, so it is tricky to see him picking up a set against Pipe.

He did win the DP Dosh Puma Australian Grand Prix, but that is eclipsed by Pipe’s triumph in a Players Championship event (beating Adrian Lewis and Michael van Gerwen en route) and a string of more than respectable showings this campaign.

Terry Jenkins -2.5 sets v John Weber @ 10/11

We are looking at much the same situation here, with Jenkins fancied to see off his opponent from Down Under in straight sets.

The Bull has had a good season, like Pipe, picking up a Players Championship competition as well as reaching the final in both the UK Open and European Championships.

Weber qualified for this tournament by winning the Oceanic Masters so does have some pedigree, but with respect beating the likes of Jeremy Fagg and Cody Harris is nothing compared to the likes of some of the world’s best.
