Wednesday’s World Darts Championship tips: German takeover, Luke Littler return and MVG dominance

World Darts Championship action returns with a bang this Wednesday as the battle for Alexandra Palace supremacy enters its third round.

If you’re a true darts fan, you know the feeling. The last three days without Ally Pally action have been rough.

Yes, we had pigs in blankets. Yes, we did stock up on Lynx. Yes, we did spend time with loved ones.

But let’s be honest, in order to reach true happiness in life, you need that dose of tungsten action, that rough voice of Russ Bray, and even the commentary of Wayne Mardle.

This Wednesday will be a true feast of darting action. The line-up is startling, dare I say ridiculous. There are more stars on show than on Hollywood Boulevard, and we’re only getting started.

Wednesday’s Match Schedule

Afternoon Session
Scott Williams vs Martin Schindler
Dave Chisnall vs Gabriel Clemens
Rob Cross vs Jeffrey de Graaf

Evening Session
Matt Campbell vs Luke Littler
Michael van Gerwen vs Richard Veenstra
Michael Smith vs Madars Razma

Our first betting selection concerns the two Germans in action – Martin Schindler and Gabriel Clemens.

Schindler takes on Scott Williams who demolished Danny Noppert 3-0 in the previous round, averaging 94 along the way. The Wall, meanwhile, got the better of Jermaine Wattimena.

Both Schindler and Williams shared a similar average, similar checkout percentage and the pair are currently operating on a similar level.

Clemens will fly the flag for Germany in the following match. The 40-year-old takes on Dave Chisnall who is not a fan of this stage of the competition.

Chizzy has been eliminated in the third round in half of his 12 World Darts Championship campaigns – including the last two editions.

Clemens, on the other hand, averaged an underwhelming 90 in his first match of the tournament. A repeat of that may give Chisnall hope.

Considering this is another tight game in prospect, we’re backing both the Clemens and Schindler matches to produce over 5.5 sets at just under the 3/1 mark.

Teenage sensation Luke Littler will kick off the evening session at Alexandra Palace against Canada’s Matt Campbell.

Taking on the young Englishman is a tricky task considering he has nothing to lose and can, at times, play like a young Phil Taylor.

The bookies have Littler fourth-favourite for the title, meaning his odds on this match are not even worth consideration. However, The Nuke to hit over 7.5 maximums is worth pondering at around even money.

Our final selection comes in the Michael van Gerwen clash against fellow Dutchman Richard Veenstra.

MVG was absolutely lethal in his opening round match against Keane Barry, winning 3-0, averaging 98 and hitting a 167 checkout.

Veenstra is a good player in his own right, but we’re fully expecting the Green Machine to deliver, and deliver in style.

Gerwen to win the match, hit most 180s and hit the highest checkout at 20/21 is the way to go.

Suggested bets

Martin Schindler and Gabriel Clemens matches both to produce over 5.5 sets – 15/2

Luke Littler to hit over 7.5 maximums – 4/5

Michael van Gerwen to win the match, hit most 180s and hit the highest checkout - 20/21
