The German Darts Open comes to a close on Sunday with the usual formula of the last 16 of the tournament being played out in the afternoon session and then the remainder of the competition in the evening.
We’ve seen some excellent darts in this tournament so far and we have the promise of plenty more over the course of what should be a decent Sunday. As ever in these events we can preview the last 16 but time restraints will deny us the chance of previewing the evening session. We do have an outright bet left in though and hopefully Mensur Suljovic can carry our hopes deep.
First Four Matches
The action begins with the number one seed Michael van Gerwen looking to continue his quest for a third straight European Tour title this year when he takes on Alan Tabern. The tie of the round follows them when Dave Chisnall takes on Ian White. Daryl Gurney then goes up against Mervyn King before Michael Smith faces Jelle Klaasen in the final match prior to the interval.
Last Four Matches
We kick off the second half of the afternoon with two Europeans colliding when Max Hopp takes on Benito van de Pas. Joe Cullen then plays a Daniel Larsson who had Saturday off as his opponent Simon Whitlock pulled out of the event. Mensur Suljovic goes up against Gerwyn Price and then the final match of the afternoon sees the world champion Rob Cross taking on Darren Webster.
I’ll go with one bet in the last 16 and it comes fairly early on in the piece when Ian White goes up against Dave Chisnall. History suggests that there is not going to be much between the two given that their last three battles have gone to a deciding eleventh leg.
White won their last meeting and he has been performing to a very good level on the circuit so the heavy odds against on him has to be considered value. Chisnall had a wonderful win on Saturday but he was under no pressure at any stage. He will be here though. White has had the pressure on him this weekend and handled it and that may prove to be the difference here.
WON – Back I.White to beat D.Chisnall for a 4/10 stake at 2.38 with Betfair
