Wednesday PDC World Championship Tips
James Punt was back on song on Tuesday night. He went 2/2, including a 5.00 winning bet on Wright to win 4-2. Let’s hope for more lolly this afternoon. Check out our Wednesday PDC World Championship tips and preview below.
Jose De Sousa vs. Alan Soutar
The Special One had a less than impressive 3-2 win over Jason Lowe in the second round. Lowe played, took a 2-0 lead and De Sousa looked on his way out, but the match flip flopped, and De Sousa won the last three sets, dropping just two legs. He averaged 96 in the end and that is his second highest average in his last ten matches. His normally heavy scoring has been absent recently and we have seen mostly low 90s and not the high 90s we are used to. De Sousa has won six of his last ten matches, but he is not at his best.
Alan Soutar won an epic against Mensur Suljovic in a sudden death leg. He should have lost the match so many times, but Suljovic just couldn’t take his chances and eventually Soutar did. It must be said that Soots never looked comfortable, and it was a lousy effort from Suljovic who just doesn’t seem to care for playing at Ally Pally.
Soutar Must Improve
Soutar has won five of his last ten matches, but he is likely to have to play better in this match. De Sousa’s B game is better than the Scotsman’s and if De Sousa finds something near his A game he should win comfortably. They have never met so there is no H2H form to go on.
De Sousa is the 1.33 favourite, but he isn’t playing like a 1.33 favourite. Soutar is capable of better than he has shown so far and if he can relax and enjoy himself, you never know. De Sousa is the more experienced player on the big stages, but his Ally pally record is played six, won two.
Soutar has decided that he will be taking on the crowd this afternoon, wearing the tartan trews and wanting to stick it up Englandshire. 90% of the crowd are just there to get drunk and sing abusive songs so it is probably going to backfire on him, unless he can throw with 2000 England football fans barracking him. Gerwyn Price can just about do it, but is the world number 1 and has had years to get used to it.
De Sousa is poor value at 1.33 but it is hard to get too enthusiastic about Soutar’s chances, even on the handicaps.

Dave Chisnall vs. Luke Humphries
Chizzy has a 5-1 H2H record over Humphries but Cool Hand Luke won their only match in 2021, a 10-9 UK Open quarter final back in March. They have played each other in three major championships and all their matches have been very close. 10-8 to Chisnall in the 2019 UK Open, 5-4 in the 2020 Grand Slam and that 10-9 this year. They are both good players to watch, play at the same pace and only once has there been a match that wasn’t very close.
Looking at their stats we have Chisnall’s seasonal average at 95, Humphries 95. Chizzy’s checkout rate is 41%, Humphries 39% and % of legs won is 54% for both. They are cut from the same cloth.

Nathan Aspinall vs. Callan Rydz
Our outsider bet for the championship, to win the quarter and hit the most tournament 180s, Nathan Aspinall, turned up for his first match with physio tape strapped all over his throwing arm. He is suffering with a tendon problem but says it is not too bad and he can still throw. It is hardly ideal, however. The Asp won his opening match 3-2 vs. Joe Murnan which wasn’t a great performance.
Callan Rydz on the other hand beat Brendan Dolan 3-0 with both players averaging over 100. It was one of the best matches of the tournament in terms of quality. Rydz continues to gather experience and is improving all the time. He has won both his matches so far 3-0.
These two have met twice with one win apiece but it was Rydz who won the only match this year, a comprehensive 7-2 win in a players championship semi-final.
This was always going to be a tough match for Aspinall, whether it was against Rydz or Dolan. He has won seven of his last ten matches and had seven ton plus averages. He only averaged 93 in his opener and how much that had to do with his injury is hard to say but it is enough for me to avoid this match for betting purposes. Aspinall is the 1.73 favourite and Rydz 2.20. Hopefully Aspinall can pull off the win but I am less enthusiastic about his chances now. We have enough invested on Aspinall so no need to be getting involved here.
