Whitlock
The 2019 PDC season gets underway on Feb 1-3 with the Bet Victor Masters, with a strong field and Aussie Simon Whitlock with a point to prove should be great

On the opening night of 2019, BetVictor Master Simon Whitlock will be playing Mensur Suljovic, with a nagging point to prove missing out on a Premier Leauge place. Whitlock finished higher on the prize money table than James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld but missed a place and he did not hold back on letting his feelings known.

The Bet Victor Masters runs from the 1-3 February which can be seen on Foxtel in Australia.

The other key matches on the opening night are:

My selections are in bold

Darryl Gurney v Dave Chisnall

Darryl Gurney should continue his winning ways over an inconsistent Chisnall

Mensur Suljovic V Simon Whitlock

Whitlock with a point to prove should be the winner over Mensur Suljovic

Gary Anderson V Darren Webster

Gary Anderson will be out to start the season on a high and will account for Webster easily

Michael van Gerwyn v Johnny Clayton

3-time world champion MVG lost on the weekend which will make it even harder for Johnny Clayton to run him down in the first round

Night two sees the following matches:

The bad boys of darts line up in the first match

 

Gerwyn Price v James Wade

After his record fine and suspended sentence Price will be behaving himself and won’t be a match for bad boy Wade.

Rob Cross v Joe Cullen

Rob Crosses 2018 was up and down but showed some great form at the later part of the year, it will be a close match but he will prevail over Cullen

Michael Smith v Ian White

The mutch improved Smith will have a hard fought win over wily veteran White, Smith is playing to well not to win this match

Peter Wright v Adian Lewis

Adrian Lewis will beat the out of form and touch Peter Wright convincingly as Wright tries to  find the perfect darts

 

The interesting match here is the Wright v Lewis. Peter Wright in the later part of 2018 struggled bug time and will be interesting to see if the Christmas break has been kind to him and that he settles down with one set of darts.

 

The semifinals and final will be held on Sunday UK time Monday Australian Time
