Accumulator Darts Tip For Today – Johnny Morton

The UK Open moves into its second day on Saturday, starting with the 16 fourth round matches.


Some of the sports biggest names were knocked out in the third round, most notably world number one Michael van Gerwen, who lost 10-8 to Dutch compatriot Jeffrey de Zwaan.


Peter Wright, Raymond van Barneveld and Adrian Lewis were also amongst the big names to be knocked out of the open-draw tournament.


We look ahead to the fourth round, and pick a treble for the action.


Daryl Gurney vs Kim Huybrechts


These two kick the action off on the main stage in Minehead, with both coming through tight matches in the previous round.


Northern Irishman Gurney survived match darts before coming through 10-9 against Jelle Klaasen, while Huybrechts secured a 10-8 victory over Gabriel Clemens.


Gurney has been in good form in recent weeks, even if his results in the Premier League don’t show it. He should have recorded victories over van Barneveld and Gerwyn Price, but missed doubles at crucial times cost him.


Huybrechts is looking to find his best form again after a disappointing 2017 campaign, but may find it hard against the free-scoring Gurney.


The world number five should have enough to get through this match as he goes in search of a second major title.


Pick Daryl Gurney to win at 1.45 odds


Rob Cross vs Kyle Anderson


Reigning world champion Cross had to come from behind to beat rising star Nathan Aspinall in the third round, hitting six 180s in the process.


Aussie Anderson came through 10-7 in a tight contest with Vincent van der Voort, and will provide a stern challenge for Cross.


Cross had endured a tough start to the 2018 campaign after such an impressive debut season in 2017, but seems to be back to somewhere near his best.


The world number three has won both of his previous meetings against Anderson, and should be able to make it three in a row on Saturday afternoon.


Both men are well known for their big scoring, so expect a lot of 180s to be hit during this one.


Pick  Rob Cross to win at 1.25 odds


Corey Cadby vs Martin Schindler


This match-up sees two of the brightest young talents in world darts coming up against one another.


Cadby has burst onto the scene with impressive wins over the likes of Phil Taylor, and picked up his first PDC ranking title earlier this year, only a matter of weeks after winning his tour card.


21-year-old Schindler is flying the flag for German darts, and beat Ryan Harrington 10-7 to reach this stage.


Australian Cadby, who is seeded fourth for this tournament, is expected to shoot up the rankings this year, and that could well start with a run deep into the weekend here.


With the likes of van Gerwen and Wright departing the competition, it could pave the way for a young gun like Cadby to seal their first major title.


Pick Corey Cadby to win at 1.25 odds


Selection: Gurney, Cross and Cadby all to win.


Total Odds – 2.26
