This year’s PDC World Darts Championship has been one of the most unpredictable in history and arguably the greatest story in the history of the sport could unfold tonight as 16-year-old Luke Littler has reached the final on his first attempt.

Standing in his way is Luke Humphries, who is now the world number one after demolishing Scott Williams 6-0 in the semi-final.

With a blockbuster final on the cards, we pick out some of the best bets for the night’s action.

  • Over 160.5 highest checkout @ 7/4

Match Odds

Luke Littler is available at 6/5 to win this clash, while Luke Humphries is the 8/11 favourite to lift the Sid Waddell Trophy.

Over 34.5 180s @ 5/6

Littler and Humphries have produced historic performances to make it to this final, with the pair averaging 106.05 and 108.74 respectively in their semi-final wins.

There were question marks about how Littler would deal with coming up against a top-level opponent after a more favourable run to the last four.

However, Rob Cross threw everything he could at the youngster and the Nuke continually responded, eventually securing a 6-2 win in which he threw 16 180s.

His opponent here will provide the sternest challenge possible, though.

Humphries has looked back to his devastating best since being nearly ditched out of the tournament by Ricardo Pietreczko and Joe Cullen.

Cool Hand has now won his last 18 matches and will take some stopping by Littler. He hit 14 180s in his 6-0 whitewash of Scott Williams in the last four.

In last year’s final between Michael Smith and Michael van Gerwen, there were 37 maximums.

With this match expected to go on for longer, and with both players set to fully play their part, over 34.5 180s is the selection.

Over 160.5 highest checkout @ 7/4

Both of these players have demonstrated rock solid finishing to go along with their impressive scoring at this tournament and their board management means they are always likely to leave themselves a shot at a big checkout.

As a result, a checkout of over 160.5 looks well within reach for this pair, who can both utilise the bullseye extremely well.

Littler hit a 164 in his win over Matt Campbell, while Humphries took out the biggest checkout of them all, 170, in last night’s semi-final.

With both players capable and likely to go for it if on, a big checkout is a distinct possibility.
