There's a high-quality running order for the opening day of the Ladbrokes Darts Masters, with many of the best players in the world stepping up to the oche at Milton Keynes.
We've highlighted three of our best bets on day one and rolled them into this accumulator.
2021 Ladbrokes Darts Masters Tips - Day One Treble
Glen Durrant vs Mervyn King
Despite a decent run at the World Championships, where he lost to Dirk van Duijvenbode in round four, Glen Durrant hasn't been at his best for the last six months or so.
In contrast, MERVYN KING has been playing some cracking darts, reaching the final of the Players Championships Finals, while also impressing on the Ally Pally stage. Merv has plenty of previous in the Masters, having previously made the final, and he's a good bet to make it through into round two.
Krzysztof Ratajski vs Simon Whitlock
Viewers will then be treated to a replay of a third-round match at the World Championships. It was KRZYSZTOF RATAJSKI who prevailed on that occasion, and the "Polish Eagle" is fancied to get one over Simon Whitlock again.
Both players missed a hatful of darts at doubles that day. The match was closer than the 4-0 scoreline suggests, but it will still give Ratajski plenty of confidence going into Friday's rematch.
Jose De Sousa vs Jonny Clayton
JONNY CLAYTON produced the upset of the tournament here 12 months ago, dumping Michael Van Gerwen out in the opening round with a 10-6 victory, before going down narrowly to Nathan Aspinall in the next round.
Since bursting onto the scene with that stunning victory in the Grand Prix, Jose De Sousa's form has been a little in-and-out. This will be his first appearance in the Masters, so Clayton has a slight experience edge. The winner will face Michael van Gerwen in the next round, so Clayton will be desperate to get through and prove last year's win was no fluke.
