The BDO has its second biggest tournament on this weekend. The Winnmau World Masters has always been a good guide to see how players are performing and who we should look out for in the World Championships. So this proved to be last year with Stephen Bunting winning the Masters and the World title. We already have had several shocks in the tournament with Scott Waites, side effects James Wilson, here Daryl Fitton and Wesley Harms have all crashed out. I have been disappointed in Scott Waites form in particular as I felt he had the ability to dominate the BDO circuit for many years after his World title success in 2013. However he has been on a slight decline since and will need to improve his practicing if he is to compete in the Lakeside this year.
Winnmau World Darts Masters Day 2 Tips
There are a few major matches today however I think the pick of the action is Alan Norris contest v Remco Van Eijden who has made great strides this season. Norris is a top player reaching the World final last year but I feel Remco represents value at 4/1 to grab a shock win. Remco did do well in the World Darts Trophy earlier in the year and could catch Norris by surprise here.
Elsewhere in the afternoon session I will have a double bet on Scott Mitchell and Gary Robson to get through their respective matches against Dainel Larsson and Willen Mandigers both at odds of 3/10
Finally I shall back Martin Phillips to win the tournament at 9/2 as the Welshman has come into great form recently and with the major players being knocked out I feel he can capitalise to win the tournament with the experience he has
