There are six cracking PDC World Championship matches on Thursday and the party at the Alexandra Palace looks to have delivered a trio of tasty wagers.

Stephen Bunting was in near unstoppable form before the Christmas break and the Bullet's clash with Florian Hempel gets Thursday’s action under way.

Ante-post favourite Luke Humphries takes on the improving Ricardo Pietreczko, while Gerwyn Price faces Brendan Dolan.

Ross Smith clashes with Chris Dobey, in what should be a high-class affair, and the same can be said for the match between Joe Cullen and Ryan Searle.

World Championship Darts Day 11 Tips

  • Ross Smith vs Chris Dobey - Over 16.5 180s @ 10/11 
  • Ricardo Pietreczko +2.5 set vs Luke Humphries @ 20/21 
  • Ricky Evans to beat Daryl Gurney @ 6/4 

Ross Smith vs Chris Dobey - Over 16.5 180s @ 10/11 

The total 180s line has been bumped up to 16.5 for the best-of-seven set clash between Ross Smith and Chris Dobey but they still might not be high enough to stop an overs winner.

These two maximum machines are both inside the top six in terms of the most frequent 180 hitters on tour this year and they combined to hit 17 top scores in their second-round games.

The match betting can barely separate the pair, which should mean plenty of legs in a closely-contested clash and that means only one thing when maximum men Smith and Dobey are in town.

Ricardo Pietreczko +2.5 set vs Luke Humphries @ 20/21 

Luke Humphries second-round win over Lee Evans was a decent performance, and from what we have seen from Cool Hand Luke this season, it’s clear that there could be a lot more to come from the Newbury thrower.

However, there may well be a fair bit of improvement needed against Ricardo Pietreczko, who averaged 99 in a seriously impressive 3-2 victory over Callan Rydz before the break.

Humphries' checkout success was down at just 36.5 per cent against Evans, which is a slight worry, given that the 28-year-old’s World Championship record is pretty patchy.

Cool Hand Luke could easily put 10 points on his second-round average, but the prices appear to take that for granted, and Pietreczko looks a nice handicap play.

Ricky Evans to beat Daryl Gurney @ 6/4 

Ricky Evans has always promised to deliver on the Alexandra Palace stage and Rapid Ricky gained the biggest World Championship win of his career when beating Nathan Aspinall in round two.

The Kettering arrowsmith averaged 99 in that 3-0 victory over the Asp, and although this is the 33-year-old’s ninth appearance at the Ally Pally showpiece, the feeling is that Evans is on the up.

Daryl Gurney rattled in a 100 average against Steven Beaten in the second round, but SuperChin’s career has been on a downward spiral for some time and there is little to justify the Northern Irishman being such a short price against an in-form opponent.
