Luke Humpries and Devon Petersen.
Will Luke Humphries or Devon Petersen come out on top in Group 5?

Dan Fitch is backing Luke Humphries and Devon Petersen to entertain the watching fans when they compete in Group 5 of the PDC Home Tour.

"While Petersen won the Darts at Home event, Humphries was the only player to beat him that night."

Group 5 of the PDC Home Tour takes place on Tuesday night, with two players dominating the betting.

Luke Humphries is the favourite at 2.35/4, but Devon Petersen is not far behind him at 3.02/1. Nick Kenny is 6.05/1, with Joe Murnan the outsider at 7.06/1.

In a tournament already peppered with surprises and withdrawals from star players, Nathan Aspinall is now the overall favourite to win the PDC Home Tour at 7.613/2. Dave Chisnall is the second favourite at 10.09/1, after winning Group 3 on Sunday evening.

Humphries will get off to winning start

Luke Humphries, the world number 34, starts the action against Nick Kenny, who made the switch from the BDO this year.

Kenny has fared reasonably well since winning his PDC Tour card, but Humphries has to be favoured. The current PDC Youth World Champion is 2.01/1 to win with -1.5 on the handicap market.

Petersen comfortable playing at home

When the PDC trialled this concept, it was Devon Petersen that won the first Darts at Home event.

It's no surprise then to see Petersen is favourite here, but Murnan has won both of their previous encounters and could be competitive against the in-form South African. Over 7.5 legs is 8/11 on the Sportsbook.

Form says that Murnan should not be the outsider

The two outsiders meet in the third match of the night and Kenny is favoured to win.

Once again, Murnan seems underestimated. There's not much in it, but he's been more successful on the tour than Kenny this year and the value lies with Murnan to win at 2.021/1.

Back heavy scorers to hit 180s

While Petersen won the Darts at Home event, Humphries was the only player to beat him that night.

They have one win each from their two face-to-face meetings, with Humphries winning the most recent encounter at the World Championship. With this a difficult one to predict, go for these heavy scorers to record over +3.5 total 180s at 1.75/7.

Petersen was enjoying a good start to the year, with new darts improving his game, before the interruption to the season stalled his progress.

There have been a number of big victories in recent days in this tournament and it might be worth backing Petersen to to enjoy such a win over Kenny. Back Petersen -2.5 at 2.8815/8 on the handicap market.

Final games are short-lived affairs

With players having to compete in three matches in quick succession, it's perhaps not surprising that the last matches of the night are tending to be short ones.

Successful players have found their rhythm, while those that can't win the group are no doubt tired and eager to crack open a consolatory beer. At the time of writing, all six of the final two matches that have taken place in the tournament, have seen under 7.5 legs and you can back another short game at evens.
