DEFENDING champ Gary Anderson is the new favourite for darts World Championship glory after Michael van Gerwen's shock defeat last night.

World No.1 MVG was sent crashing in a classic match with fellow Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld who is now an 8-1 shot for the title at the likes of bet365 and William Hill.

Anderson leads the market at 11-4 with Skybet and Betfred after producing one of his best performances of the year in demolishing Vincent van der Voort to set up a last-eight meeting with James Wade.

It looks pretty open now and 16-times champ Phil Taylor is 9-2 at Betfair while in-form Adrian Lewis will have backers at the same price with Skybet and Sportingbet.

If you fancy an outsider to grab glory Peter Wright (14-1, Boylesports) as well as Wade (14-1 Betfair) and Dave Chisnall (18-1, Betfair) will all hope to go all the way.

Wright and Chizzy face each other today for a last-eight spot while Alan Norris takes on Mark Webster and Taylor tackles Jelle Klaasen. There will be a new thread posted with Lockuptipster's tips for the day so keep an eye out for it.

England's first cricket Test with South Africa ends today with Alastair Cook's men needing just six wickets for victory and they're 1-5 at bet365 to seal the deal.

There's also a busy night of NBA action so as usual let's hear all your sporting tips and chat and good luck with your bets.

    Anderson/Wright final 14/1 looks a decent shout.With MVG out Anderson must be having a wee chuckle to himself and he seems to have hit a wee purple patch.It could be an epic semi if he meets Taylor.

  2. raoul duke 3 years ago

    James Harden Under 28.5 Points @ 1.83 (PP) – 2.4 Points. – *WON*

    Reggie Jackson (Detroit Pistons) Under 20.5 @ 1.83 (PP) – *WON*

    Serge Ibaka (Thunder) Over 13.5 @ 1.80 (PP) – *LOST*

    Cavs @ Nuggets Over 195 @ 1.90 (Bet 365) – 1.2 Points – *LOST*

    Again it’s my prop bets that are bringing the profit in, going 2-1 on the night and my main bet of James Harden Under landing.

    Well done to any winners.

  3. the lucky filipino 3 years ago

    Ok I’m looking through the darts market today and seen something I like.. I wonder if any of the darts specialist can fault this treble on skybet…

    Chisnal highest checkout over 120.5
    Mark Webster highest checkout 117.5
    Phil Taylor highest checkout 123.5

    Odds- 5.16/1 skybet

    Take out Webster for the Taylor / chisnal over checkout double is 2/1…

    What u think guys…

    • Mr Fixit 3 years ago

      the lucky filipino, I’m no darts expert but betting on a player’s highest checkout is always going to be a bit random – almost a 50-50 call.
      No one can really say if that will win or lose.

    • bullseye 3 years ago

      Hi The Lucky Filipino. The Taylor selection is solid as he has previous for taking out big finishes under pressure. He hit a 170 max finish against Painter in his last match. That market could also be taken as a single tbh If Klaasen leaves Phil with a finish above 123 I’d fancy him to take it out. . Chisnall hit a high of 138 against Kist in his last match and has taken out finishes above 120 on many occasions. The match could potentially go the distance with Wright so he should get a chance to surpass the line. Forget about Webster lol. He’s not known for his finishing. Its looks like a decent enough double. I’ll leave it with you to decide. Good luck mate.

      • the lucky filipino 3 years ago

        Thanks for that mr F and bullseye..won’t take the treble but going by bullys knowledge i also think the Wright and chisnal game will go the distance so gonna go for chisnal over 120 checkout at 5/6 as a single on skybet..feel confident about it now…maybe have a little dab at Taylor if it comes through…haha…

      Looks like Neptunas have shortened massively! Their league form isn’t great but they are a good side. Now that they are out of the euros they’ll improve massively and for those who may have missed the earlier value, I’d still take them at -5.5.

    • 3 years ago

      Well done hunter,took a single and double out of your tips, brilliant euro basketball tipster!

  8. primetime 3 years ago

    Memphis as an underdog later this afternoon could be worth a quid or 2 against an Auburn side that is pretty much middle of the pack in most categories. Baylor proved last night that you can win with a 3rd string QB but I don’t think Auburn has anywhere near the O-line that Baylor had. Also, they will be playing against one of the top NFL QB prospect in Paxton Lynch, who will pretty much solidify his status as the draft’s top QB (and a top 5 pick) if he can dazzle tonight, a lot on the line for him, and I am siding with him coming through.

    Memphis Tigers ML at 6/4 (Bet365)

  16. captain 3 years ago

    Good day yesterday with tungstens treble and with the Cavs covering the spread that I put on , could have been even better if i had taken the risk and added the hawks who i fancied to beat the bulls ending their good home form.

    Magic -6 @5/7 with 365, they beat down the Nets 15 days ago away from home and should do this again tonight on their home floor.

    GSW are only -5 on the spread with Curry doubtful today against a good Maverick side. However should the rest of the team up their game they can cover this however it will be close,

    Will be doing the double which pays 2.27/1 , 5 points

    I like the trailblazers tonight but the spread is at -7, nuggets could be jaded from yesterday when they were at one stage 15 points down and eventually got this down to 6.

    could be one to look at inplay

  17. Jordan 3 years ago

    No joy with the college games last night but both points totals I put for the teams I fancied came in so trying my luck with this.

    Memphis Tigers Over 31 Team Points @ 10/11 @ Stan James – 3.3 points

  18. Jordan 3 years ago

    Jeremy Lin ha sbeen ruled out for the Hornets with Nicholas Batum questionable. Point Guard Kemba Walker is coming off his best performance this season scoring 38 against a lowly Lakers side. Shouldn’t be quite as easy against the CLippers, but he should have a productive game.

    Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets) Over 27.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points

    Steph Curry and Draymond Green are also questionable for the Warriors. If neither play, let it be known the Mr Thompson could have a big night. No props available as yet.

  19. bullseye 3 years ago

    World Championship darts

    Singles:

    Norris vs Webster, Norris win 11/10 **NAP**

    Taylor vs Klaasen, Taylor over 5.5 180’s 5/6 **NB**

    Norris vs Webster, Norris over 7.5 180’s 6/5

    Treble:

    Norris vs Webster, Norris most 180’s
    Taylor vs Klaasen, Taylor win
    Chisnal vs Wright, Chisnall +2.5

    5/4

    Norris, the former lakeside finalist, is considered the underdog by the bookies but his scoring power is going to present Webster with problems tonight. Norris hit five 180’s against Thornton and eleven against Murnan in round two not to mention a large amount of 140’s that just missed being maximums. His darts sit in the treble bed with such excellent grouping and his throwing action is very consistant which means he can maintain his power scoring throughout a match. Webster should probably should have lost a couple of sets against Jenkins, who hit him with quite a few 140’s and four 180’s. Jenkins did’nt appear to respond well to Terrys power scoring and started putting in poor visits where a single treble was’nt hit. If he does that tonight he will get punished. Jenkins let him of the hook with missed double after missed double and Webster took advantage. Norris did well to absorb over twenty 140’s from from Murnan but carried on with his his power scoring and ran away with a 4-1 victory. There should be no difference in his game tonight. He will hit a high volume of 180’s and on that basis I think Webster will find it hard to live with him.

    Taylor is actually still using his old darts its just that he is using shorter stems on them as he claims they lie in the segments better. Apparently he’s been hitting lots of 180’s and a few nine darters in practice so its obviously working for him. In the first two sets against Painter he was poor but from the third set onwards he picked it up and was finding his range more. He finished on seven 180’s and hit a 170 checkout to complete the comeback with a 4-1 win. Klaasen’s doubling was a bit iffy at times against King but like Taylor he also hit a 170 checkout. I think Taylor will win the match and cover his 180 line in this as he will know that with MVG out, he can lay down a marker and throw his hat into the ring as a serious contender for the championship

    Chisnall and Wright last met in the double start format of the Grand Prix of darts. It was a very close match but ultmately Chisnall won it 2-1 in the first round where all sets were required. Similarly tonights match could go the distance with each player expected to defend their throw well. Using the +2.5 handicapp on Chisnal makes sense because his power scoring will mean he will always stay in range of Wright. Chisnall hit twenty seven hundreds, twelve 140’s, twelve 180’s and finished on an 102 average against Kist in round two. Only the two sets will be required of him here, which he should get.

    Good luck all

    Huggy great shout with Barton last night btw! Smashed it.

    Just having a look at injuries. The Hornets could be really depleted tonight. Lin, Kidd-Gilchrist and Hawes out, Batum and Jefferson questionable. I know the Clippers won’t have Griffin but should still have too much with the spread only at -2.5 at the moment.

    • huggybear518 3 years ago

      mate , struggling of late in nba ,so glad to finally get a prop winner , that`s a great shout , clippers played well enough to win without blake the other night.

    • Jordan 3 years ago

      Nice one boss. What you reckon on my post below? Thought about McCollum too but P&A at 27.5 but crap price of 8/11

  57. Jordan 3 years ago

    One to look at for future PR&A. Philly have traded for Ish Smith at Point Guard and he’s put up some good numbers but isn’t getting the markets yet. PP have his total @ 15.5 but I’d like to see some consistency first.

    Also Lillard is out for Portland with Mudiay and Galinairi both out for Denver again.

    Will Bartons total set at 18, Kenneth Faried P&R at 22. Both have a chance I reckon.

  58. Jordan 3 years ago

    Going to leave the Portland game and instead try Omri Casspi (Sacramento Kings) Over 14 Points @ 5/6 @ Paddys. 1.2 points

  59. Jordan 3 years ago

    Warriors really that bad without Steph? Yikes.

  60. nick 3 years ago

    I’m going small stakes on Noel o10.5 as he’s starting again and has hit 11+ in his last 3 games he’s started. Was tempted by u16.5 for Okafor as they’ve stated he’s going to be getting limited minutes off of the bench but I hate unders and he averages over it recently(when starting)! :D

    • Jordan 3 years ago

      Probably a good bet Nick. Especially with Smith in the line up as he likes to penetrate the paint and dish it off to the big man. Averaging high assists to say he played primarily on the bench in New Orleans.
