The Heat is on with this enhanced odds darts accumulator

We've cooked up another one of our delicious darts bets for you, so settle down this Sunday lunchtime and tuck into a fantastic 4/1 five-fold.

First game of the day features Mark Walsh against Jamie Caven. Walshie is unsurprisingly the favourite in the betting, priced at 2/7. He's never been past the second round in this tournament, but should have enough to get past a man who's only ever won once at Ally Pally. Jabba, as Caven is known, is a diabetic and blind in one eye; he's the outsider of the pair at 5/2, so Mark makes it into our bet.

Next up is another preliminary round fixture, with Charles Losper (2/7) taking on Sudesh Fitzgerald (5/2). Losper is the second highest ranked South African on the PDC Order of Merit, just one place outside the top hundred. A policeman of nearly 20 years, The Sensation successfully defended his South African Open title to earn his chance at qualifying for the first round proper. Fitzgerald, a native of Guyana, is making his debut in the World Championship, and is here through winning the Caribbean and South American Masters earlier this year. Losper is the second leg of our enhanced odds accumulator.

The third selection in the bundle is the shortest-priced player of the session. Mark Dudbridge is a 1/5 chance against the virtually unknown Nick Fullwell, priced at 10/3. Flash is a regular in the TV tournaments, and often reaches the latter stages; indeed, he's been runner-up in this event as well as the World Matchplay. He also won the BDO World Masters early in his career before switching to the PDC, although it must be said his results in the last couple of years haven't been quite as he would've liked. He should have more than enough to defeat Fullwell though - who is another making his first appearance here - so is included in the five-fold.

The fourth game looks like it could be the closest to call. Wes Newton is the jolly, but not by as big a margin as some of the others - he's priced at 8/13 against his Danish opponent Per Laursen, a 6/5 shot. Newton, with his peculiar nickname of 'Av It, has made the last 32 twice in the World Championship, while Peachie - who's achieved a bit of success in his native country - has reached the same stage once before. He finished top of the Danish Darts Standings for the third successive year to qualify, but Newton is the one who goes into the acca.

Last (and by no means least) in the afternoon's order of play is the clash between darting legend Denis Ovens and PDC ever-present Steve Maish. Steve is known as Mr Magic, and he'll need every trick up his sleeve to progress today - he's the 13/8 outsider. Denis, meanwhile, is nicknamed The Heat, and is regarded by many as one of the most consistent players 'on the floor'. When it comes to the televised events, however, he has a habit of reaching the second round and no further - leading commentators to call him The Nearly Man (although the second round isn't near enough, you would think). We do think, however, that he'll make the second round again this year, and his odds reflect that - 4/9 says he'll get through. Ovens is the last selection in our special enhanced bet.

So our favourites five-fold is complete, and the selections are Mark Walsh, Charles Losper, Mark Dudbridge, Wes Newton and Denis Ovens. With our Sunday lunchtime dart bundle, you can get the special enhanced price of 4/1 on them all to make it to the next round.
