Meulenkamp and Clemens to progress with confident displays
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">World Darts Championships – 1st Round Match</h2><h2><br />Ron Meulenkamp v Ben Robb</h2><p><strong>18th December 2019</strong></p><p>Ron Meulenkamp has been in good form in the second half of the year with notable victories over Daryl Gurney and Gerwyn Price. He comes into this tournament in pretty good form and will be eager to take continue his impressive performances.</p><p>Meulenkamp scores well and once he gets in a rhythm can cause problems for the top players. His opponent Robb is inexperienced in comparison, but Meulenkamp can’t underestimate Robb as this has been shown already in the tournament with top seeds going out.</p><p>Robb may find this stage too intimidating and thus Meulenkamp can win comfortably here.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Ron Meulenkamp (-1.5legs) to beat Ben Rob at 2.0 (Evens) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Coral</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://1338206185.rsc.cdn77.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Jose-Justicia.jpg" style="width:650px;height:366px" /></strong></p><h2 style="text-align:center">World Darts Championships – 2nd Round Match</h2><h2><br />Stephen Bunting v Jose Justica</h2><p><strong>18th December 2019</strong></p><p>Jose Justica caused a shock in the first round by beating Aaron Monk 3-0 in sets. He delivered just under 40% of his check outs with average of just under 90. His confidence will be sky high after this and he can still improve on his three dart average in the next round against Bunting.</p><p>Although Bunting is favourite, Justica can stick around in the match and the handicap of +1.5legs for Justica is our pick for this match.</p><p>Bunting has performed well on this stage before, but has shown huge inconsistency of late and knows a good run in this tournament can elevate his ranking as he enters 2020.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Jose Justica (+1.5legs) to beat Stephen Bunting at 2.2 (6/5) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://cdn.uat.ms.sbrfeeds.com/redirect-proxy/redirect/?url=http://cdn2.spiegel.de/images/image-1377361-860_poster_16x9-jxxm-1377361.jpg" style="width:650px;height:366px" /></strong></p><h2 style="text-align:center">World Darts Championships – 1st Round Match</h2><h2><br />Gabriel Clemens v Benito van de pas</h2><p><strong>17th December 2019</strong></p><p>This has the makings of a top match. Gabriel Clemens has impressed in the 2nd half of this year performing well in the last few television tournaments. He therefore comes into this tournament in good form.</p><p>Benito van de pas has performed well at this tournament before, but like a lot of the players underneath the top 10 in the world, they lack the consistency to challenge when it comes to the later stages of big tournaments.</p><p>Should Clemens settle well, he can lead from the front and make it very difficult for van de pas. The Dutchman has struggled in his last few tournaments and if he goes behind, could struggle to compete.</p><p><strong>Top Tip: Gabriel Clemens (-1.5leg) to beat Benito van de pas at 1.8 (4/5) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></strong></p><p><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></p></div>
