PDC World Darts Championship Tips - Day Four Acca
Mickey Mansell vs Haupai Puha
The Ally Pally stage has not been kind on Mickey Mansell down the years. The Northern Irishman has lost all five of his first round matches, which includes a loss to Phil Taylor. In 2019, Mansell went down to little-known Canadian thrower Jim Long, averaging just 75. Mansell upped his game in 2020, averaging over 80, but he still lost 3-0 to Japanese qualifier Seigo Asada.
HAUPAI PUHA is a World Championships debutante, but regular PDC viewers will recongise him from the World Cup Of Darts. Puha has won three matches in that televised tournament with teammate Cody Harris, reaching the quarter finals in 2019. Puha topped the New Zealand order of merit, and the lack of fans may help calm those first-time nerves. The New Zealander is definitely the value bet here.
Wayne Jones vs Ciaran Teehan
A surprise semi-finalist in 2006, Wayne Jones hasn't made it past the first round since 2012, losing 3-2 to Kevin McDine, Dean Winstanley and Devon Peterson on his last three visits. Jones failed to qualiy but got through this year by his Order Of Merit position, so he's clearly playing better in 2020.
I'd still rather side with CIARAN TEEHAN, who enjoyed a strong World Championships debut last year. Teehan beat Ross Smith - who won in the first round earlier this week - convincingly in the first round, and came from 2-0 down to force a deciding set with Mervyn King in Round Two, which he eventually lost by four legs to two.
The young Irishman hasn't really kicked on this season, but he has beaten Simon Whitlock, Ryan Searle and Michael Smith in the Home Tour events this month, and a return to Ally Pally stage will bring back good memories.
John Henderson vs Marko Kantele
After three first-round exits in a row, JOHN HENDERSON has reached the third round on his last three visits to the World Championships. Henderson has enjoyed second-round wins over James Richardson and Gabriel Clemens the last two years, before going on to lost to Michael Smith and Gerwyn Price.
In 2019, Henderson and Marko Kantele met in the first round. Henderson won 3-0, went on to beat Daryl Gurney in the second round, before losing to eventual winner Rob Cross. Henderson has dropped down to 41st in the PDC rankings since then, but he should still have enough about him to see off the man from Finland.
James Wade vs Callan Rydz
JAMES WADE brings down the curtain on day four's action, and I think 1/3 on "The Machine" getting the better of Callan Rydz is excellent value.
Rydz wasn't completely convincing when seeing off Australian qualifier James Bailey in the first round and Wade, who has risen back up to 7th on the PDC rankings, comes into the World Championships with plenty of form on his side. Wade should have more than enough class to see off a young, dangerous rival.
