Dave Chisnall Offers Each Way Value At The Grand Slam of Darts
The televised darts action continues to come thick and fast as the Grand Slam of Darts gets underway at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton on Saturday afternoon. The nine-day event features a round robin format first of all as the 32 players are divided into eight groups of four, with the top-two from each group going on to the knockout phase...

MVG Starts Favourite
The outstanding Michael van Gerwen is favourite for his title defence after he beat Phil Taylor in last year's final and the Dutchman is in red hot form following his victory at the World Series of Darts Finals in Glasgow last weekend.
The world number one is 5/6 favourite (Sky Bet) and he is in Group A with BDO star Martin 'Wolfie' Adams, Brendan Dolan and Max Hopp.
It is difficult to look beyond the Dutchman but he is in a tough top-half of the draw that also includes Phil Taylor, who is in Group D. 'The Power' is a six-time champion at the Grand Slam of Darts but he lost a Wolverhampton finale for the first time last year and he arrives off the back of a semi-final effort in Glasgow last week.
Taylor (13/2) lost to Peter Wright in Scotland and the pair could be in line for a meeting during the knockout stages as Wright is in Group C, with the top-two from Groups A-D making up the top-half of the draw.
Chisnall Is A Stand Out Bet
Groups E-H form the bottom-half of the draw and Dave Chisnall catches our eye in what is an admittedly very tough Group G. Chisnall is in the same group as James Wade, James Wilson and Jamie Hughes, but he is capable of building on a decent year.
'Chizzy' has reached six finals during 2016 and he is in clearly in good touch as he reached the semi's in Glasgow last week, where he lost to an inspired Van Gerwen. Chisnall is a former runner-up at the Civic Hall (2011) and he is 28/1 to win outright (Sky Bet) or a tempting 3/1 to win the fourth quarter (Paddy Power).
Chisnall looks the best prospect in that bottom section as Wade hasn't gone beyond the second round of Wolverhampton since reaching the final in 2010, while two-time Grand Slam semi-finalist Adrian Lewis, who is in Group H, has lost his past four meetings with Chisnall.
Anderson Can Make The Most Of A Kind Draw
Chisnall could then be in store for a semi-final clash with Gary Anderson, who is in Group E and the third quarter of the draw. The world champion was runner-up in Wolverhampton in 2011 and he can make the most of a very kind draw in Group E.
Anderson can be backed at 15/2 (Betway) and if he gets through his group then he could expect to face either the out-of-form Raymond van Barneveld or Mensur Suljovic, who might be running out of steam following some breakthrough darts of late, from Group F in the knockout phase.
