WHAT a day of darts we were treated to yesterday as the World Championships signed off the year on a high.
The tournament's first nine-darter couldn't save Adrian Lewis from defeat to Raymond van Barneveld, Phil Taylor diced with disaster before squeezing through and flying Scotsmen Gary Anderson and Peter Wright set up a cracking quarter-final. The Ally Pally action resumes on New Year's Day so the betting focus on Wednesday switches across the Atlantic to the NBA.
There are several intriguing match-ups with Milwaukee Bucks at a Cleveland Cavs side who have hit a form dip recently and are looking to bury the memory of an embarrassing home loss to Detriot Pistons.
Elsewhere Phoenix Suns are 9-4 for the win at Oklahoma City Thunder (2-5) and Miami Heat are 11-8 at the 4-7 Indiana Pacers.
It's also a busy card in the NHL ice hockey where it's top v bottom in both the Atlantic and Metropolitan Divisions with Tampa Bay Lightning at Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins hosting Carolina Hurricanes.
Also on the sporting agenda is boxing, cricket and tennis so good luck if you're having a punt and post your tips and chat here.
