The double header of events are the final two regular Players Championship events to be held in the UK before the third European Tour event is played and the cut off for the all-important World Matchplay is made.

In total, 122 players will head to the K2 Centre in Crawley all eyeing a shot at glory and a place in the summer showpiece event at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Current form would suggest Dave Chisnall is very much the man to beat; the 31-year-old has reached now fewer than five ProTour finals so far in 2012 and it is his blistering floor form that recently saw him enter the world's top 16 for the first time as a PDC player.

He made it to the final of the second European Tour event last weekend, losing out only to Phil Taylor and will be a player many will hope to avoid this weekend as he looks to continue his power scoring rampage.

The St Helens star is the 9/1 outright favourite with SportingBet for both Saturday and Sunday's event and is sure to reach the latter stages.

Rock steady tour players Justin Pipe and Wes Newton follow Chizzy as joint 11/1 second favourites. Both have surged up the order of merit in recent years courtesy of superb runs in ProTour events and are now enjoying the best spells in their respective careers.

The duo both have ProTour titles to their names this year and are a solid each-way bet in any floor event, more so with the absence of big guns Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld this weekend.

Consistent Aussie Simon Whitlock is a realistic 12/1 chance, while World Champion Adrian Lewis offers value at 14/1.

Jackpot may not be renowned as a prolific off-screen player, but is capable of turning on the style in any event and proved that by reaching a recent Players Championship final.

James Wade is short priced at 14/1 given his bout of poor form, while Belgium's rising star Kim Huybrechts could prove dangerous as ever at 25/1.

In terms of outside each-way value, former world number one Colin Lloyd could do damage at 33/1 as he heads into the events in a resurgent bout of form.

Jaws hit a nine darter and numerous ton-plus averages at the German Darts Championship last week before running into a rampant Phil Taylor and will look to build up to the World Matchplay in style.

Young Dutch sensation Michael van Gerwen picked up a ProTour title earlier this month and is always a threat; he is also priced at 33/1, but often lacks the consistency needed for strong runs week-in week-out.

Former Lakeside Champion Mark Webster is a 50/1 chance along with Premier League wildcards Kevin Painter and Andy Hamilton who often save their best form for the big stage.

Both events are non-televised and will commence at 12pm, with the draw being made following the close of registration at 11am. All games will be the best of 11 legs and are not open to public entry.
