Draw

Dutch Darts Championship Draw

0.75 pts Dave Chisnall e/w (1/2, 2 places) @ 18/1

Backed Chizzy a couple times this year, to no avail so far, but he is playing decent at the moment and does already have a title to his name this year, winning PC6 in March.

As I say the numbers are good from Dave just now - he’s averaged 97+ in nine of his last 10 matches. Looking at his section of the draw, high 90s could well see him through this quarter - Clayton/Searle/Wade are all relatively out of form and haven’t won a Euro Tour between them for some time.

Bunting looks to be the main threat but again isn’t a prolific winner. Chizzy won three Euro Tour events last year and the Dutch Darts Championship was one of them, I think he can put a stellar effort in at defending this title this weekend.

0.75 pts Danny Noppert e/w (1/2, 2 places) @ 20/1

Noppie continues to play well and will look to put in a big weekend in his home country, the Netherlands.

He's already won an event this year - the PC8 in April - and has missed a few decent opportunities to win more silverware recently, losing to Graham Hall in a PC quarter-final when draw was opening up and losing out in the semis to Humphries in the Austrian Darts Open.  So he’s thereabouts at the business end regularly just now.

His record in this tournament is solid too, reaching the quarters last year and agonisingly lost 8-7 to Michael Smith in 2022 final. He should win his opening match comfortably against Gilding/Mol, and there’s a few in his section playing well, but no better than Noppert for me.

0.75 pts Martin Schindler e/w (1/2, 2 places) @ 20/1

This feels like a bit of a repetitive play from me on the Euro Tour just now, but I refuse to jump off the wee German just yet.

He’s in a very open section of the draw - Ross Smith probably the one to beat, Edhouse/Heta/Gurney are others playing decent but Schindy has posted higher numbers than all of them in the past couple months.

The Wall sits 3rd in the world for averages since April 1, epitomising how good he’s been recently. He's already won a Euro Tour event this year and made the semis of another, I fancy him to continue sustaining this excellent form and going deep this weekend.

0.5 pts Cameron Menzies e/w (1/2, 2 places) @ 80/1

My outsider pick for the week.

I can’t help but think Menzies is in a section full of underperforming seeds - Wright and Van Duijvenbode particularly have had horror years on the whole, and Price has been struggling to find silverware and has been injured recently. Van Veen and Rock have been quieter in comparison to the past year or two and Barney/Rydz/De Sousa haven’t produced much last couple months.

Menzies hasn’t threatened to win a title yet which is my main concern, however his numbers are very impressive - on the averages list, he sits 19th over the last 12 months and 14th in 2024. His consistency has also been a strong point, he’s averaged 92+ in all of his last 16 matches. He’ll be facing big names but if he can remain composed then he should be able to stick with any of these guys in the scoring.

He's worth a punt at 80s to get on a roll.
