Robbie Green is 51/20 to beat Raymond van Barneveld and pull off the first major shock in the PDC World Championship.
‘Barney’ has an excellent record in the tournament, winning the trophy in 2007 after beating Phil Taylor in an epic final, finishing runner-up to ‘The Power’ two years later while also reaching the semis in four of his 10 appearances.
But the Dutchman crashed out in the first round four years ago, losing 3-0 to unknown James Richardson, and Green is 7/1 to edge out a thrilling contest 3-2 on his debut at Alexandra Palace on Tuesday.
Van Barneveld told Sky Sports: “The draw I have is immense – it’s very strong. It’s going to be tough but I have to play it one game at a time. If you look at the draw it looks almost impossible but it’s not. You can do it but you have to play your A-game.”
Dolan has not passed the second round in eight years at Ally Pally, suffering the last of his three first-round exits to Kyle Anderson in 2016, and Kist is 11/2 to produce another whitewash over the Irishman on Tuesday night.
In the final match of the evening, 2010 runner-up Simon Whitlock is the overwhelming 7/100 favourite to see off either Boris Koltsov or Dragutin Horvat.
