PHIL TAYLOR begins his bid for a 16th World Matchplay title today and his first opponent is giant Highlander John Henderson.

Taylor is 1-12 at Boylesports for victory and evens at the likes of Skybet and BetVictor for most 180s against the underdog who’s chalked up at 12-1 for a shock win with bet365.

Henderson’s fellow Scot Robert Thornton is 4-6 at Ladbrokes to win his tough opener against Keegan Brown (11-8, Boylesports) while Dave Chisnall and Raymond van Barneveld hope to avoid an upset against Jamie Caven and Andy Hamilton respectively.

The Aussies smashed England in the second Ashes Test yesterday to make it one victory each so far and are now in to 1-2 at Paddy Power to win the series.

Chris Froome retained his stanglehold on the Tour de France lead and today it’s stage 16 where Alejandro Valverde is the 14-1 favourite with bet365.

There’s also tennis and baseball on the go today so let’s hear your tips and thoughts and good luck with your bets.

    BOASSON HAGEN v Degenkolb
    Double @ 2.16 with 888

    Fuglsang each-way @ 29.00 with BV
    Bakelandts each-way @ 36.00 with BV
    Boasson Hagen each-way @ 81.00 with PP

    Having watched the first two test matches in the ashes ..and judging by how England got an absolute trouncing in the second test it’s really difficult to see how they are gonna pick up from this..With Steve Smith in awesome form and the formidable bowling line up they have I think the aussies are a fantastic bet at 1/2 to go on and clinch the series

    Evening Guys Matchplay Darts

    With 6 out of 8 favourites losing yesterday, I was happy with 2 out of 4 winners. It should really have been 3 but VDV fell one maximum shy. My Ante post bet of at least one 9 darter almost came in as VDV wired double 12 to land it. In fact 3 players hit 6 perfect dart yesterday, so still think the bet could land. On to tonight then.

    Thornton v Brown

    When the draw was made I fancied Brown, as Thornton form as been poor but he turned that around winning on the tour in the last tournament before the Matchplay, Brown missed that tournament due to illness. One reason I was going to oppose Thornton is his form at the Matchplay is aweful. He as never won a match on this stage, losing to Ian White and Paul Nicholson, whilst Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis have hammered the Thorn 10-0!

    We seen our important the first session can be, yesterday we saw players racing into 5-0 and 4-1 leads and it takes a big effort to come back from that. If Keegan is in contention after the first break and second he could well nick this at good odds. For me the bet I like is for Keegan to cover his maximum line set at O3.5 at 8/11 Paddy Power as this could be a long match and I like him to checkout O109.5 at 5/6 Paddy Power.

    BROWN O3.5 TOTAL 180s 8/11
    BROWN O109.5 CHECKOUT 5/6

    Chisnall v Caven

    Chizzy was superb in the premier league, he led the way for the majority before losing out to Gary Anderson 10-9 in the semi final. He finished the league with 68 maximums two behind Anderson who played one more match that Chizzy. Jamie Caven will push him and I can see him taking the match past 15 legs, which means taking O5.5 Chizzy maximums is probably the best bet on this match. It pays evens at Titanbet.

    CHISNALL 05.5 TOTAL 180s 1/1

    Barneveld v Hamilton

    Two players who need a decent run here, but with Taylor waiting potentially in the second round they will want to put in a good performance. Barney didn’t look right at the World cup and apparently he was under the weather and as taken some time off. Hamilton as had a poor year and is slipping down the rankings so I am expecting a tight nervous game. Hamilton as only won 3 out of 24 meetings with RVB and while he may not win this one I can see a long match. O16.5 legs is a bet I like at 11/10 Ladbrokes.

    O16.5 TOTAL LEGS 11/10

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Ilhan d Gulbis @ 13/5.

    Anyone who follows tennis know Gulbis can be a profitable man to bet against when he’s odds on, especially when his forms so poor. Obviously he’s a strong favourite to win this if he brings his best tennis, but he’s just as likely to bring his worst.
