Bash The Bookies With The Tungsten Tipster’s Darts Betting Tips

Last night saw some top tungsten action, with the unlikely pairing of John Bowles and Jamie Caven providing some first class entertainment in match that went all the way to a final set tie-breaker.  It was no less than a statto’s wet dream, with 66 x 100+ chucks, 40 x 140’s & 11 x 180’s (albeit over 25 legs) as both players averaged around 94 with 50% success on doubles.

Bash The Bookies!

Former rugby league player Bowles had come through a preliminary game to reach the first round proper, so perversely what was arguably the match of the night didn’t feature in our Tungsten Tipsters debut picks last night. Just as well really…

What a start it was for our man though, with 4 wins from 5 and the double all coming home for a +81.23 profit. Not bad eh? Did you heed his advice?

The Ian White v Mark Webster fixture was the only dud, and in all fairness, and not withstanding Websters pedigree, on recent form White did seem to be a sensible selection.

Anyway here are today’s slightly cautious suggestions designed to protect last night’s profits.

World Championship Darts Betting Tips from The Tungsten Tipster

Tuesday 18 December 2012

A great start to our tipping service yesterday where we made a massive 81.23 points profit with 5 from 6 going our way including the daily double. We have put a few more bets up to bash the bookies tonight.

Steve Beaton v Kyle Anderson

The first match of tonight sees Steve Beaton take on Kyle Anderson of Australia.  While we all know Steve Beaton well, this being his twelfth consecutive PDC World Championship and having contended the previous ten Lakeside events, we know little of Kyle Anderson.

Anderson has been doing quite well on the Australian tour hitting a 9 dart finish in the Australian open earlier this year and winning the Oceanic Masters to earn his place on the PDC World Championship stage tonight.  He will be up there with nothing to lose & everything to prove and Anderson’s momentum will be helpful to him on his first visit to Ally Pally.  I fully expect the experience to prevail here & Beaton to take home the win but I could definitely see Anderson nicking a set from the former World Champ.  As there is no real value on the handicap betting, my recommendation for this game is Steve Beaton to win 3-1 @ 9/4 with William Hill.

Jamie Lewis v Lourence Ilagan

Jamie Lewis from Wales is definitely one the most talented youngsters coming through the ranks of the PDC Youth Circuit and will certainly be one to watch for the future however Lourence Ilagan from the Phillipines is no stranger to the Ally Pally stage and is coming here with confidence. I would not like to try and pick a winner here as on their day both guys are more than capable of getting the four legs they need to take their place against Colin Osbourne, there is a little bit of value to be had with Lourence Ilagan to have the highest finish @ 11/10 with Paddy Power. 

Wes Newton v Johnny Haines

Wes has had a great 2012 rising up to number 6 in the world and if he can produce the wins here at Ally Pally can see himself rise even further up the rankings.  Johnny Haines, although there are 72 places separating these players on the ranking table, Johnny will not let Wes off too lightly having come through a difficult qualifying tournament beating the impressive John Bowles, to earn his place.  Wes should be taking his place in the second round but as the bookies see Wes as a huge favourite there is not much value to be had on the outcome of the match however with two people playing well the over 118.5 check out put up by William Hill @ 5/6 looks good to me.

Mervyn King v Dean Winistanley
This some people’s choice of being the tie of the first round with both players in top form coming into the championships but I really believe that King will have a little too much fire power for Dean and this being Dean’s first time on the Ally Pally stage, Mervyn’s experience here will give him the advantage.  There are two bets in this match I can see good value in, first of which has to be the over 118.5 check out again given by Ladbrokes @8/11, who in my mind are 4 points off the radar and also Mervyn to win @ 4/5 with William Hill.

So the bets for today are:

Steve Beaton to win 3-1 (10pts) 9/4 William Hill
Lourence Ilagan highest check out (10pts ) 11/10 Paddy Power
Newton v Haines game to have a check out above 118.5 (20pts) 5/6 William Hill
Mervin King to win (20pts) 4/5 William Hill
King v Winstanley game to have a check out above 118.5 (20pts) 8/11 Ladbrokes

And the daily double is King to win and Newton v Haines over the 118.5 (20pts)
