US Darts Masters


Recommended Posts

A 2 day event this weekend (Fri/Sat) 16 players in this event. 8 coming from the PDC and 8 players from North America.

This is the 4th installment of this event and the winners have been MVG, Gary Anderson and Nathan Aspinall. No North American has made the final, or semi-final in all 3 editions. Infact, not one got through to round 2 last year. When I say last year, it was actually 2019 (covid)

This edition we have the following players :
PDC - Wright / M.Smith / Price /
MVG / Sherrock / Wade / Clayton / Anderson
N.America - J.Smith / Baggish / Campbell / Van Dongen / Cameron / Gates / Boehm / Lauby Jr

You would have to say that the line-up for US/Canada is the strongest that they've offered over the 3 editions with players like Jeff Smith and Campbell winning smaller events and giving good accounts at the european events.

After crashing out of the Premier League and with average performances recently, you'd think Price would come here with something to prove. However, you have him coming out saying he's "burnt out" and then you have MVG talking about potential surgery for an arm and Wright being very inconsistent and it paves the way for yet more "hard to predict" darts and potentially a big price winner.

I would say that Michael Smith is probably the most consistent of those lot right now. It won't stay like that, ofcourse, but right now, at 11/2 he is worth another bet. He made the final of this in 2019, last time out and although he faces a difficult task in Peter Wright, I would hope that he brings confidence into this event. I'll also throw a point at Fallon Sherrock. We really don't know what we're going to get with her after all this time but 70/1 is a big price when we look at the inconsistencies of the other players.

When we look at US/Canada there is probably 2 that have a chance of potentially going "deep" and when I say that, i mean semi-final at best because these are more cover bets. I could be wrong but it's more than just quality of a darts player. You need to win when you SHOULD win and that's not always easy for these inexperienced winners.

it's probably not an event to bet a great amount on and more for watching.  Good luck

Not even a remote chance brother. I like your other picks though.

she's a funny one. I completely wrote her off at the Nordic Masters too and she went and got to the final. However, she DID get a bye from Price and only had to win two matches.

Lauby Jr is a good player on his day but the gulf between the two sets of 8 is pretty substantial. One to keep an eye on , perhaps.
