Tony O’Shea Could Shine

Live on BBC 2: From Saturday: Kevin Francis previews the BDO World Championship where Martin Adams in 7/2 to win with Sportingbet.

THE ‘other’ version of the World Darts Championship, organised by the BDO, moves into action on New Year’s Day and here, the Daily Star’s KEVIN FRANCIS looks at some of the contenders.

UNLIKE the PDC version, where favourite Phil Taylor is always at notoriously-short odds, favourite and top seed MARTIN ADAMS is a very reasonable 7/2 chance with Sportingbet to be the outright winner. ‘Wolfie’ is reigning champ after winning the title for the second time and those odds about him are certainly worth taking. Yorkshireman SCOTT WAITES, a three-times quarter-finalist, is a very backable 4/1 chance with totesport, and William Hill.

TED HANKEY, the man they call ‘The Count’ because of his uncanny resemblance to Dracula, is a two-time winner of this event and will certainly have the backing of the crowd who love his walk-in, complete with cape, so much that they wave rubber bats around whenever he appears! He is a 16/1 shot with Skybet and sportingbet and may appeal to those of you who like long odds each-way bets.

SUGGESTED BET: The 2009 runner-up TONY O’SHEA is eighth seed and it makes sense to have an each-way bet on him being a finalist once again at odds of 15/2 with Boylesports and Paddy Power. This former green-keeper once had a hole-in-one on the golf course – and he could be on target once again, this time from the oche! I feel he can make it to the final again.

Happy punting
