On the 2nd night, and completion of the 1st round, of the European Championships, James Wade steps into action against new PDC qualifier Magnus Caris.
Wade suffered badly at the hands of Taylor in the recent World Matchplay finals but should get right back into winning ways in this match as 1/7 fav with Paddy Power. Blue Square say 10/11 that there will be less than 8.5 legs in this first to 6 contest, meaning a 6-2 win or better will suffice. William Hill go 7/2 for a 6-1 win for exact score backers.
In other games, Adrian Lewis meets Vincent van der Voort for the 2nd tournament running, Lewis running out clear winner last time and is 2/5 with Sportingbet to win again here. A 6-3 win or better for Lewis is 4/6 (Blue Square).
Ray van Barneveld takes on Matchplay semi-finalist Andy Hamilton and it’s the Englishman who can cause an upset by winning at 7/4 with Betfred while Wayne Jones and Mark Walsh are too close to split, both coming in at 10/11 (Ladbrokes and Betfred respectively).
