The opening night of the PDC Home Tour will see one of the biggest names in darts step up onto the centre stage as well as some names that you perhaps haven’t heard of. Night One could definitely see some of the biggest upsets of the tournament.

Jamie Lewis Vs Niels Zonneveld - Zonneveld to win: 20/21

Peter Jacques Vs Niels Zonneveld - Zonneveld to win: 5/6

Night Two (Group 2) - Saturday 18th April (19:30)

Gerwyn Price Vs Luke Woodhouse looks to be the biggest match of Night Two with the Brit defeating Price last year in Barnsley and narrowly losing 6-5 in Wigan earlier this year. The mystery of this event taking place in players houses could make this a very exciting match. However, don’t discount Rowby-John Rodriguez who has good records against some of the best names in darts but has never beaten Gerwyn Price in 4 attempts. Could this be his first?

Gerwyn Price Vs Rowby-John Rodriguez - Price to win: 2/13

Luke Woodhouse Vs Ted Evetts - Woodhouse to win: 20/33

Rowby-John Rodriguez Vs Ted Evetts Rodriguez to win: 4/5

Night Three (Group 3) - Sunday 19th April (19:30)

Night Three may be the night that interests our readers the least as Dave Chisnall is a massive favourite to win against two opponents he has a fairly decent record against and Jonathan Worsley who he has never faced and is ranked 336th at the moment.

Night Four (Group 4) - Monday 20th April (19:30)

Night Four holds a number of reasons to be excited. Ross Smith is one of just eight players hit a 9-dart finish on a European Tour, after his in 2013, it took 5 years before Michael Van Gerwen hit another. Lisa Ashton is the first female of the tournament and Geert Nentjes will do a lot more than make up the numbers here.

Predictions

Ross Smith Vs Lisa Ashton - Smith to win: 5/18

Mickey Mansell Vs Geert Nentjes - Mansell to win: 10/13

Lisa Ashton Vs Geert Nentjes - Nentjes to win: 10/19
