Meet the Darts Betting News crew:

Jaymes Monte

Jaymes likes to think that he is the most knowledgable darts enthusiast at Darts Betting News. And, unfortunately for the rest of us, he probably is. Whether it be a PDC Pro Tour event or the BDO World Championships Jaymes has his finger on the pulse with whats going on and who is in form or out of form. He also isn't shy to put his money where his mouth is and often follows up his predictions on Darts Betting News with a bet of his own.

Lenny Boyle

Lenny is a sports journalist currently studying at the University of the West of Scotland.


Phil Haigh

A sports journalist from the Steel City, but Tungsten is his metal of choice as he follows the fortunes of pro darts players around the world and lets loose his views on the adventures of the arrow aimers.


Michael McGhee

Unlike most new wave darts fans, Michael's first main memories of the game are from the 2008 Lakeside won by Mark Webster. He recalls the character of players like Ted Hankey and Tony O'Shea interacting with the crowd, and the precision and terrible haircut of Simon Whitlock. From there on in being hooked. Naturally as he got older, he found betting too, and both darts and his obsession to beat the bookies went hand in hand. Michael is currently training to be a social worker.
