Dolan vs Winstanley Betting: Dean Winstanley's power scoring can be too much for one paced Dolan
The evening session on Friday in the European Darts Open, the third tournament in the European Tour this season, in Dusseldorf, begins with a match between Brendan Dolan and Dean Winstanley over the best of 11 legs for a place in the last 32 where the winner will take on either Raymond Barneveld or Ian White. Both these men have been in televised finals in the past which should make for a good match.
Brendan Dolan is the seeded player in this match but he is still the outsider to win the game at 5/4 with Blue Square. Dolan reached his televised final in the World Grand Prix last year when he beat the likes of James Wade on his way to the final where he eventually lost to Phil Taylor. Since then his form has been up and down but he did make a quarter final in a Players Championship event last week.
Dean Winstanley made his final in the Lakeside World Championship in 2011. He is enjoying his first season on the PDC Tour having previous been under the BDO umbrella and he is competing well. He has already earned enough money to qualify for the World Matchplay later in the month which is a sign of how well Winstanley has played in the first 6 months of the year. He had a win over James Wade last week so he’s playing well too.
Both men appear to be playing well so this should be a case of the better player winning and in my mind the better player is very much Winstanley. He is a very heavy scorer and he hasn’t been missing two many doubles and if he continues on that path then he should have too much for the one paced, and in my opinion slightly overrated, Northern Irishman here.
