Followers of our pre-tournament BDO World Darts Championship betting tips are sitting pretty ahead of the final between Glen Durrant and Mark McGeeney.
Defending champion Durrant was the headline selection at 7/5, while we also recommended McGeeney as a value alternative at 22/1.
For those now looking to have a fresh interest in the decider, Durrant has looked a class apart at the Lakeside and we like 3/4 he prevails by more than 3.5 sets in the best-of-13 clash.
A Look At Glen Durrant’s Betting Odds
After cruising through the first two rounds, Durrant did have to dig deep to get past Jim Williams in the quarter-finals, rallying from 4-1 down to scrape through 5-4.
However, Duzza was back in dominant form when brushing aside 2016 champion Scott Waites 6-2 in the semis, securing 10 breaks in that one-sided tussle.
The 47-year-old, from Middlesbrough, has hit 28 maximums in this tournament, compared to 16 for McGeeney, so 53/100 he gets the first 180 in the final is a percentage pick for our BDO World Darts Championship betting predictions.
A Look At Mark McGeeney’s Betting Odds
Second seed McGeeney gave his backers an early scare when having to survive a sudden-death leg against the throw versus Martin Adams in the opening round.
Gladiator put in his best performance when thrashing ante-post second favourite Danny Noppert 4-1, but he then had to recover from 3-1 down to edge out Wayne Warren 5-4 in another tiebreak.
McGeeney always looked in control when securing a 6-4 success over surprise semi-finalist Michael Unterbuchner, but that contest lacked quality as both players averaged just a fraction above 88.
The 45-year-old’s tournament average is 89.65, compared to Durrant’s 98.58, while McGeeney is just 64-58 up in legs over four matches to date, whereas Duzza’s record stands at 63-34.
McGeeney does have a higher checkout of 160, though, so 7/5 he produces the best finish could be worth a saver from the BDO World Darts Championship betting odds.
