Hard to go against favourite Lewis

Adrian Lewis goes into tonight’s 2012 Ladbrokes World Darts Championship final on the back of possibly the best comeback in the PDC history as he fought back from 5-1 down to beat James Wade 6-5.

The Machine missed double 18 to wrap up the win before Jackpot cruised through the gears to wrap the match up with a sublime 161 checkout.

Chasing only his second major title, Lewis is heavy favourite to defend the crown he won 12 months ago and now just has to see of the challenge of Andy Hamilton in the final.

The Hammer was a 200/1 outsider before the tournament got underway last month and has come through the top half of the draw that has included Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld.

Hamilton is appearing in his first world final and has had to overcome Dave Chisnall, Kim Huybrechts and Whitlock to make the last two on Monday.

After a huge scare against Wade, it looks difficult to look past Lewis, but the Hammer made the final on merit. His average has rarely dropped below 100 over the past two weeks and if he can stay with Jackpot early, can certainly push the champion all the way.
