PDC World Darts Championship Tips - Day Seven Tips

Simon Whitlock vs Darius Labanauskas


Former finalist, Simon Whitlock has enjoyed a strong season on the tour, reaching the semi-final of the Grand Slam earlier in the year. The bookies have the 18th seed as the firm favourite, but that doesn't suit Whitlock, who plays much better when he's the underdog, and I fancy DARIUS LABANAUSKAS may oust the Australian from this year's tournament.

Labanauskas enjoyed an excellent run at the Ally Pally 12 months ago, comfortably beating Matt Edgar, Ian White, Steve Beaton and Max Hopp on his way to a quarter-final date with Michael van Gerwen, where the Lithuanian lost 5-2. The Lituanian averaged 96 during his 3-0 first round win over Chengen Liu, and Labanauskas could be too consistent for the patchy Whitlock.

Devon Petersen vs Steve Lennon


I was impressed with the way Steve Lennon closed out his opening round encounter with Daniel Larsson, having looked a little nervy in the first few sets. He'll have his work cut out against 29th seed DEVON PETERSEN though, and the South African can continue his strong season with a good showing at the World Championships.

Having only previously made it to the Ally Pally through qualifiers before now, Petersen has risen to a career-high ranking over the last three months, thanks to great runs to the Last 16 in the Grand Slam, the Grand Prix and the Players' Championship Finals. Devon has plenty of form on that World Championships stage, making it to the fourth round in 2019 before going down narrowly to Nathan Aspinall. He should be too strong for the Irishman and 4/11 represents a decent amount of value.

Rob Cross vs Dirk van Duijvenbode


Despite the fact that he's a World Championships debutante, and he needed all five sets to see off Youth Champ Bradley Brooks in the first round, the bookies can't split Dirk van Duijvenbode and ROB CROSS in this second-round match.

The 2018 World Champion hasn't enjoyed the best of seasons. Cross has failed to make an impression in any televised tournaments in 2020, and performed fairly poorly in the Premier League. Yet, he's played well enough to enter this tournament ranked fifth in the world, and 10/11 is a price I'm not willing to pass up. Let's hope Voltage will light up the Ally Pally this evening!
