Steve Beaton is a huge favorite here over Mark Hylton, there is no doubt about it. Hylton is a newcomer to a big stage like this, while Beaton has had a lot of successes. We all still remember his win over Phil Taylor, which The Power still bears with anger in my opinion. Beaton was excellent on that day and he will draw a lot of confidence - he can make a deep run here in this one and he has a pretty easy opponent in the first round, so he should take care of him without any problems. Hylton has a strange throwing action that sometimes results in a few "off" darts and with the added pressure of this being the "big stage", the probability of his "off" darts increase dramatically. He is not able to maintain any sort of consistency in his throw, while Beaton is one of the more consistent players in the business. He is also pretty good on the doubles and I think he can finish Hylton here without any problems. I cannot see Hylton winning a set and this is a decent price in my opinion. Good luck.
