UK Open Darts - Outright Tips

Callan Rydz
To Win Outright @ 100/1

Callan Rydz - To Win Outright (Each-Way) @ 100/1

Now, my first pick is a real outsider - 100/1, in fact, but I watched him in the floor tournaments last week and he was hitting 180s for fun!

There's no doubt that for his ability, Callan should be doing a lot better than he currently is.

When he finds his groove and has that confidence within him, he is capable of beating any player on the planet. We've seen it in flashes previously, but could this be the time that it all comes together for him?

If he gets the right draw, just as Anthony Gilding did 12 months ago, then there's no reason as to why he can't win this.

At 100/1, he's without doubt worth a shot, especially each-way, where you'd get a quarter of the odds if he was to reach the semi-finals, which he is more than capable of doing.

Chris Dobey
To Win Outright @ 22/1

Chris Dobey - To Win Outright (Each-Way) @ 22/1

Now Chris Dobey is a player who has very few off days, he just needs a little bit of luck to really get himself going.

He can count himself so unlucky not to have been selected for the Premier League this season; in fact, if it wasn't for Luke Littler's incredible run to the final, then he would have made the eight-player cut.

Maybe Chris, like Luke Humphries last year, will feel he has a real point to prove after missing out on selection.

He hits 100 averages on a consistent basis now and he knows he can beat all of the top players - he's done that before. Now, he just needs to string together five or six wins on the spin to capture that first televised title.

For me, odds of 22/1 for a player who has the undoubted talent of Chris, and in a competition where he could miss the big boys, carries plenty of appeal.

Ryan Searle
To Win Outright @ 20/1

Ryan Searle - To Win Outright (Each-Way) @ 20/1

Finally, Ryan Searle - arguably the most in-form player outside of the top three or four in the world at the moment.

He's not in the headlines very often, largely due to the fact that he's not competing under the bright lights of the Premier League, but he's quietly been going about his business in the floor tournaments.

He's played in four of those this year, reached the final of two, and won one - the other that he was beaten in, he still notched a remarkable 109 average in defeat against Gary Anderson!

Ryan is on fire at the moment, and there's no doubt that he has the game to become one of the top players on the circuit.

If the draw is favourable, with the confidence he has oozing through him at this moment in time, you'd be silly to write him off lifting that trophy on Sunday evening.
