Free darts tips, best bets and analysis for Thursday's PDC Home Tour Group Seven
What is the PDC Home Tour?
The PDC announced a new event to keep sport rolling during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Home Tour event starts on Friday April 17 and will be streamed on bookmaker websites and features a host of big names.
Each session starts at 7.30 and will see four stars do battle in nightly round-robin groups which are played over the best-of-nine legs. The 32 group winners will progress through to the next phase.
Thursday's PDC Home Tour Group Seven preview
Group Seven of the PDC Home Tour has the potential to be the closest yet with little to split the quartet.
German powerhouse Gabriel Clemens is the highest-ranked of the four competitors and the bookmakers' favourite having reached the last 16 of the UK Open recently.
However, threats abound in a group containing Development Tour star Ryan Meikle, world number 74 Gavin Carlin and former BDO world champion Jelle Klaasen, who, while often wildly unpredictable, is capable of magic.
Many will be looking at Clemens' match with Klaasen as the match which could decide top spot but Meikle may be the man to focus on from a punting perspective.
The 23-year-old has beaten some decent players this year, including Dimitri van den Bergh, and could give both Clemens and Klaasen a run for their money.
He should certainly fancy his chances against outsider Carlin, who has made it past the Last 64 of a Pro Tour event only once this season.
R Meikle to beat G Carlin (8.30pm)
2pts 4-6 general
R Meikle v J Klaasen over 7.5 legs (9.30pm)
2pts 8-11 general
