Joe Cullen v Nico Kurz - 20:00

As the second round continues at the PDC World Championship, the second match on Friday evening see's Bradford-based darts star, Joe Cullen take on the ever impressive German youngster, Nico Kurz.

Kurz was highly impressive during his emphatic 3-1 victory over James Wilson on Wednesday, against the odds - averaging 95.67.

The young German almost acheived perfection during the win, narrowly missing D12 for a nine-darter. He'll need to replicate that sort of form as he takes on the World no.16, Joe Cullen.

As for Cullen, it's been another strong year for 'Rockstar' - winning on the European Tour and four quarter-finals on the pro-tour.

As far as performance levels go, Cullen averaged 92.69 over 30 Players Championship events, firing in 198 maximums.

During Kurz's win over Wilson, the German hit three maximums to Wilson's four and this particular encounter will have plenty of maximums in it.

Over 6.5 180s - 1pt @ 17/20

Max Hopp v Benito van de Pas - 20:45

Germany meets the Netherlands in a mouth-watering second-round clash at Alexandra Palace. Max Hopp takes on 'Big Ben' Benito van de Pas.

Van de Pas completed an impressive 3-2 win over the much-fancied German, Gabriel Clemens on Wednesday evening and it doesn't get any easier for the Dutchman, but van de Pas always seems to come to life at Alexandra Palace - reaching the last 16 on four occasions.

As for Hopp and his performance levels throughout 2019, the 'Maximiser' is known for his high scoring and consistently high averages. Over the course of the year, Hopp averaged 93.71, firing in 168 maximums en route.

This tungsten toss-up will rain maximums, and potentially has sets in it.

Over 6.5 180s - 1pt @ 4/5

Peter Wright v Noel Malicdem - 21:30

As day eight of the World Championship draws to a close, the World No. 7, Peter Wright enters the fray at Alexandra Palace - looking to avenge his first-round defeat 12 months ago as 'Snakebite' takes on Noel Malicdem of the Philippines.

Malicdem, who famously hit a nine-darter on the PDC Asian Tour, completed a convincing 3-0 win over Austria's Rowby-John Rodriguez on Tuesday afternoon.

In terms of opposition calibre, Peter Wright will prove to be a much sterner test for Malicdem.

As for Snakebite, it's been a strong year, despite slipping down the rankings ever so slightly. Wright picked up three PDC pro-tour titles, the World Cup alongside Gary Anderson and the German Darts Masters in Cologne.

Comparatively, Wright averaged 98.63 over 30 Players Championship, the third highest seasonal average behind Rob Cross and Michael van Gerwen, whom only competed in half the number of matches compared to Snakebite.

The World No. 7 hit more maximums than any other player on the pro-tour in 2019, striking 315 180s. My recommendation here is the 180s market in favour of Peter Wright.
