World Matchplay Darts - Day 3 Tips Monday 18th July

The action is hotting up inside the Winter Gardens and we’re back to preview Day 3 at the World Matchplay.


We’re expecting some red-hot action on the oche on Monday night as the World Matchplay canters on along the Blackpool beach.

First up is the 2019 champion Rob Cross, as “Voltage” looks to sweep aside the talented Chris Dobey, and Monday night’s action finishes with two maximum-lovers Dave Chisnall and Kim Huybrechts.

Let’s take a look at the best tips and picks for Day 3′s play in Blackpool:

Rob Cross v Chris Dobey (18 July, 19:00)

Over 9.5 180s at Evs with bet365

We’re avoiding the outright market here due to Cross and Dobey being pretty well matched on the oche.

In a match that is expected to go down to the wire – with the overs leg market also looking tempting! – we’re expecting the 180s to flow with at least 10 between the pair of arrowsmiths.

Once Cross gets into his rhythm he can be one of the most devastating scorers in the sport, and Dobey isn’t far off!

Jose De Sousa v Gabriel Clemens (18 July, 20:00)

Gabriel Clemens to beat Jose De Sousa at 11/10 with bet365

Jose De Sousa may well be a major champion, but the Portuguese has gone slightly off the boil in 2022.

At 11/10 it’s too tempting to avoid backing the underdog in this match, with Gabriel Clemens known for his ability to pull rabbits out of the hat in upsets.

It’s the big German’s third Matchplay and we reckon this could be a case of third time lucky as he pushes deeper into the tournament.

Gerwyn Price v Martin Schindler (18 July, 21:00)

Gerwyn Price -3.5 handicap vs Martin Schindler at 6/4 with bet365

There is a World Matchplay-shaped hole in Gerwyn Price’s growing trophy cabinet, with the Welshman only reaching the quarter-finals at best in previous attempts.

Martin Schindler is making his debut inside the furnace of the Winter Gardens and we wouldn’t be surprised if he folded under the pressure.

Price is pretty unstoppable when he gets going and a -3.5 leg handicap looks good in a lengthy race to 10.

Dave Chisnall v Kim Huybrechts (18 July, 22:00)

180 in the first leg at 6/5 with bet365

Blink and you might miss this fixture.

Both Dave Chisnall and Kim Huybrechts love finding the maximum bed and usually rely on heavy scoring to register big wins on the tour.

We’re expecting this one to get off to a fast start and stay at this tempo in a race to 10.

Backing a 180 in the first leg at 6/5 looks good.
