Kevin Eyes Painter

Live on Skysports 1: Thu 19.00: The PDC World Darts Championship comes live from Alexandra Palace, Kevin Francis previews.

PHIL ‘The Power’ Taylor is chasing a staggering 16th title in this event but, not surprisingly, is at somewhat prohibitive odds with all companies. For instance, he is a 4/11 shot with Sportingbet just to reach the final and 4/6 to win it (Totesport).

The in-form James Wade is a 100/30 chance to make the final while Raymond Van Barneveld is rated at 5/1 – both by Sportingbet in this gruelling tournament which stretches into the New Year.

I have a sneaking fancy for Billericay-born KEVIN PAINTER, even though he is seeded down at 18 this year.’ The Artist’ says he is “quietly confident” of doing well, adding: “It’s a massive stage and any serious darts player would want to be up there.”

Recommended Bet: Painter, beaten 7-6 by Taylor in a classic 2004 final, to cause a surprise by getting to the final at odds of 50-1 with Sportingbet.

Happy punting,
