World Grand Prix Day Two Betting Tips:

Day one threw up some shock exits from the World Grand Prix and we are hoping day two is in our favour when it comes to tonight's selections.

The world No.5 and No.8 seeds were dumped out in what was a crazy opening night to the double start tournament that is taking place in Leicester.

Tonight sees reigning champion Michael van Gerwen take to the stage, but with arguably the toughest round one draw possible in Josh Rock, his short price of 4/9 with betting apps was not enough to entice us.

This evening we have opted to go for two unseeded players in the form of the 2022 Masters winner Joe Cullen and the inform Dave Chisnall, to accompany our third selection, the 2021 World Grand Prix winner Jonny Clayton. 

Tonight's treble is available at 3.02/1 with BetUK.

Joe To Find More Double’s Than De Decker

Joe Cullen has the role of opening up day two at the World Grand Prix and he faces the tricky task of dealing with Mike De Decker in round one.

Cullen’s best run in this tournament came back in 2020 when he made the quarter-final, but has failed to get past round one in four of his seven appearances.

On paper this may be a concern, but with Mike De Decker making his debut in such a unique tournament, experience is a huge advantage for Cullen who is a different animal to the man he was before.

The Rockstar is a 33/1 shot with William Hill to claim a second tv title, a whole lot shorter than De Decker who is available at a monstrous 125/1, showing how difficult UK bookmakers value the competition for debutants.

The pair hadn’t met for two years before they faced off in the World Matchplay back in July, where Cullen claimed a 10-7 victory over the Belgian.

We expect Joe to make a fast start and with the Real Deal not having time to adapt to the double-in requirement in such a short format, it could be over in the blink of an eye for the 27-year-old.

Tip: Joe Cullen to beat Mike De Decker – 8/13 with Parimatch

Chizzy’s Chance To Claim A Maiden TV Title

It’s Luke Woodhouse who has the chore of dealing with the inform Dave Chisnall this evening, on what will be Woody’s debut at the World Grand Prix.

Chizzy is in the form of his life at the moment and is the pick for many to go all way and secure his first major title come Sunday’s final.

The St Helens man is available at odds of 16/1 with darts betting sites to claim the Grand Prix title, but Luke Woodhouse will be sure to put up a dogged display, in an attempt to stop Chizzy progressing in this one.

It’s always been the doubles that have prevented Chizzy from securing a major title, but all things seem to be clicking into gear at the right time ahead of this one, with the 43-year-old putting in some spellbinding performances recently.

Two-time finalist Chisnall, will hope its third time lucky when it comes to the World Grand Prix, and we believe he has more than enough to secure the win at least in this clash.

With Chizzy looking reformed and the 180 firepower he possesses being so deadly, we believe a rampant Chizzy could get this done in double quick time and turn his attention to the latter stages.

Clayton Hoping For Double Swoop

2021 was a memorable year for Jonny Clayton, in which he claimed four major titles that included the World Grand Prix.

He starts his journey in this year’s competition against an awkward Ross Smith, who is one of the best maximum hitters in the world.

The Ferret has progressed past the first round on each of his last three World Grand Prix appearances and we expect him to outclass Smudger in this one to make it a sequence of four consecutive second round appearances. 

Although, Smith has made the second round in both of his appearances and he poses the biggest threat to our treble of selections this evening.

It's imperative that Clayton finds the doubles from the off this evening, as Smith could conjure up a significant lead in the legs given the chance, and he is one of the most difficult to track down in the scoring phase.

We are expecting this to have the potential to be the game of the night and would not be surprised if we see all three sets played, but if it comes to a deciding set, our money is on the man who has done it all before.
