Anderson, Dolan and Monk to progress with ease.

<div><h2><strong>World Darts Championships – 1<sup>st</sup> round matches</strong></h2><h2><strong>Kyle Anderson v Xiao Chen Zong</strong></h2><p><strong>15<sup>th</sup> December 2019</strong></p><p>Kyle Anderson is a very strong favourite to win this and the way to play this from a betting perspective is to take Anderson to win 3-0 in sets. He is by far a superior player to inexperienced Xiao Chen Zong and can race into an early lead and make his experience count.</p><p>Anderson has been on the tour circuit for a while now and will relish the chance to get confidence under his belt on the big stage and progress with ease. He can score well and once he gets rolling with his doubles to finish off the legs, can make this a comfortable win.</p><p><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="Darts Betting Odds"><em><strong>Top Tip: 2.1 (11/10) Kyle Anderson to win 3-0 in sets with Ladbrokes</strong></em></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://e0.365dm.com/18/01/768x432/skysports-arron-monk_4210831.jpg?20180121094426" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></strong></p><h2><strong>World Darts Championships – 1<sup>st</sup> round matches</strong></h2><h2><strong>Aaron Monk v Jose Justica</strong></h2><p><strong>15<sup>th</sup> December 2019</strong></p><p>Aaron Monk is following in his Dad’s footsteps as a professional darts player and having been on the tour circuit for a while now has the chance to progress to the 2<sup>nd</sup> round for the first time. This match up should suit Monk as with his greater experience and confidence coming in this match, can beat Justica.</p><p>Aaron Monk has the potential to improve as a player, but with all lower ranked players who are not on the main roster of live TV tournaments, it’s consistency that is the key. If Monk should a good high scoring here and can make his check outs, he can come through this match.</p><p>Justica is a rank outside and will have to player outstanding darts to compete with Monk and hope Monk is off his game. But I suspect this won’t happen and Monk can look forward to another match after winning this one.</p><p><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="Darts Betting Odds"><strong>Top Tip: 1.73 (8/11) Aaron Monk to beat Jose Justica with William Hill</strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://e2.365dm.com/18/12/768x432/skysports-brendan-dolan-darts_4532065.jpg?20181228154704" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></strong></p><h2><strong>World Darts Championships – 1<sup>st</sup> round matches</strong></h2><h2><strong>Brendan Dolan v Nitin Kumar</strong></h2><p><strong>15<sup>th</sup> December 2019 </strong></p><p>Brendan Dolan has played really well in the last two TV tournaments and can comfortably progress through to the next round of the world darts championship. His high scoring and check outs should easily be good enough to take a 3-0 in sets victory over inexperienced Kumar.</p><p>Dolan is used to the big stage and impressing against the top ranked players will enable him to enter this tournament full of confidence as he looks to go well and improve on his world ranking.</p><p>This is the time of year to be in form and Dolan can show his class in this match up and get used to the Alexandra Palace arena in what could be the first of many appearances during the tournament.</p><p><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="Darts Betting Odds"><strong>Top Tip: 1.83 (5/6) Brendan Dolan to win 3-0 in Sets with Ladbrokes</strong></a></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p></div>
