Vincent van der Voort and Reyes to show their experience and gain 1st round win
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">World Darts Championships – 1st round matches</h2><h2><br />Vincent van der Voort v Keane Barry</h2><p><strong>16th December 2019</strong></p><p>The Dutchman reached the third round of the world darts championship last year and is a veteran of the sport. Knowing how to in at Alexandra Palace is a huge positive as the atmosphere is like no other tournament. As Barneveld found out yesterday, sometimes the pressure can get to you.</p><p>Van der Voort can show his experience and class to come through this first round match against Barry. The 17 year old has been on the youth tour this year and will look to cause the experienced van der Voort a few problems.</p><p>However the experience under pressure can give van der Voort victory in this anticipated match up.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Vincent van der Voort (-1.5 legs) to beat Keane Barry at 1.8 (4/5) 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="Top Rated Bookmaker!">William Hill</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://stats.idarts.nl//Content/Attachments/Players/f60b4ae5-2301-4ded-bdfb-4d5e54653960_reyes-cristo-026_full.jpg" style="width:650px;height:366px" /></p><h2>Cristo Reyes v Lourence IIagan</h2><p><strong>17th December 2019</strong></p><p>Cristo Reyes also reached third round of the world darts championship and seems to enjoy the biggest stage of darts. Although not in great form over the past few months, Reyes will be eyeing a repeat performance from last year and reaching at least the third round.</p><p>Reyes has the potential to score well consistently and deliver good enough check out percentage to beat IIagan. His opponent from The Philippines will find it tough to compete with Reyes if the Spaniard plays to the level of last year. Knowing how to play at Alexandra Palace can be a huge help to players and should Reyes come out very confident with his darts, he can win by 2 legs and deliver a winning pick for us.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Cristo Reyes (-1.5 legs) to beat Lourence IIagan at 2.25 (5/4) 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="Top Rated Bookmaker!">William Hill</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://www.dartsworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/de-zwaan-main.jpg" style="width:650px;height:366px" /></p><h2 style="text-align:center">World Darts Championships – 2nd round match</h2><h2><br />Jeffrey de Zwaan v Darin Young</h2><p><strong>17th December 2019</strong></p><p>Darin Young caused a shock in his first round match by beating darts legend Raymond van Barneveld. Young performed well enough to beat the Dutchman and looked very comfortable on stage. With the crowd wanting ‘Barney’ to win, Young delivered a 160 check out and held his nerve to win.</p><p>Young played solid darts, scoring well enough to give him chances to win the legs on his serve and then take advantage of any slip ups by van Barneveld.</p><p>Now young faces Jeffrey de Zwaan who is ranked 25 in the world at the minute. De Zwaan is regularly competing on the main circuit and has potential to cause a shock or two as the tournament goes on. He scores well and has proven to hold his nerve under pressure.</p><p>With Young delivering a 160 check out in his first round match, he can once again deliver the highest check out in his match and this is our main pick for this matchup.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Darin Young to have the highest check out in the match at 2.5 (6/4) 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="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Ladbrokes</a></strong></p><p><strong><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%;height:38px" /></a></strong></p></div>
