Chisnall and Cross the each-way picks for World Darts Championship.
<div><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>World Darts Championship</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Outright – Each-Way Selections</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>13th December 2019 – 1st January 2020</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5de930840cbf6b5a56671017/original-world-darts-championship-schedule" style="width:90%;height:90%" /></strong></p><p>It’s the biggest tournament in darts and the reigning champion Michael van Gerwen will take some beating. He is on the top of his game and the draw doesn’t have too many obstacles in his way to make it to the later stages of the tournament. If only for complacency, van Gerwen will head into the business end of the tournament comfortably. He is the outright favourite at 2.25 (5/4) generally in the market. This price is about right and offers little value.</p><p>Next up is Gerwyn Price at 6.0 (5/1) with Skybet. Price has played a very good 2nd half of the year and won the Grand Slam of darts and then runners up in the Players Championship. At this price, it’s about right and also offers little value. Price has never played well in this tournament and the pressure will be on him to perform.</p><p>With Michael van Gerwen going to be difficult to get passed in the top half of the draw, we will put up two players in the bottom half of the draw to make the final at big odds.</p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5de931260cbf6b5a56671018/original-dave-chisnall" style="width:90%" /></p><p>First up is Dave Chisnall. ‘Chizzy’ is playing well and had a good 2nd half of the season. On form he is one of the top players on the circuit and his scoring has been high of late. He has missed out on honours having a dip in form, but there is evidence to suggest at 29.0 (28/1) that he could reach the final.</p><p>Chisnall has reached the quarter-finals in 2017 and 2019 and I believe that he is playing well enough to go further in this tournament. Hitting his doubles has been a slight concern in big matches, but if he keeps his cool, he can deliver.</p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://i.ytimg.com/vi/RZyiuycBAQg/maxresdefault.jpg" style="width:90%" /></p><p>Our next player to put up is Rob Cross 17.0 (16/1). Cross won this the year before last so knows how to get the job done. Although not playing superbly well at this stage, he has the credentials to go deep in the tournament. There is value here as his price should be a few points shorter.</p><p>Although Cross and Chisnall could face each other, on the other side of the draw when it comes to facing Price or potentially Gurney, then either of them can give him a very good game and come out on top.</p><p>Therefore with double digit odds there is value in picking one or both of these to get to the final and hoping one of them delivers on the big stage.</p><p><strong>Top Tips:</strong></p><p><strong>17.0 (16/1) Rob Cross each-way to win World Darts Championship ½ the odds 1-2 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Ladbrokes</a></strong></p><p><strong>29.0 (28/1) Dave Chisnall each-way to win World Darts Championship ½ the odds 1-2 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">William Hill</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></p></div>
