Anderson is 13/2 with Paddy Power to win the tournament and is many punters’ pick and should have no problems against Andy Hamilton, Boylesports putting 8/11 on the former to win by 10 legs to 6 or better.
Ronnie Baxter is a solid 4/5 with Sportingbet to beat Denis Ovens, Colin Lloyd is the same price with the same firm to beat John Henderson and the final game of round 1 sees 2010 Premier League semi finalist Simon Whitlock take on Peter Wright. Whitlock should see off Wright with a -3.5 handicap at 4/5 (Stan James).
