It’s the week every player on the circuit has been waiting for. That’s right, the Premier League Darts crew are heading to Rotterdam, and the Dutch fans will no doubt be treated to a feast of top tungsten action.
And for all the hotly anticipated clashes this week, of course there’s bags of value to be had.
It’s about time we got you a winner, so we’re reducing the returns slightly and looking at shorter odds to increase your chances.
But that doesn’t mean our traders aren’t being generous this week.
This bet should be paying roughly 13.5/1. However, a bit of sweet-talking from our end has persuaded our odds compilers to push this five-fold out to 16s.
Let’s talk you through our selections…
James Wade v Jelle Klassen – Klassen to hit the most 180s
We’re keeping things simple with our opener. In truth, this match was a tough one to call, but not when it came to picking out the best maximum-thrower.
The Cobra has racked up 15 180s so far in this competition to Wadey’s 11, although the Machine has hit just two in the last three weeks.
Long story short, all the signs are pointing towards a master-Klass from the Dutchman on home soil.
Peter Wright v Dave Chisnall – Wright to win
Put simply, there’s no stopping Snakebite right now. Top of the league (granted, Michael van Gerwen has a game in hand) with just one defeat to his name in his last six league outings, we just can’t see a way past the UK Open winner.
He defeated Chizzy in this competition last year, and we’re expecting him to make it two wins on the bounce in the Premier League against the St Helens man.
Raymond van Barneveld v Gary Anderson – Anderson to hit the most 180s
Yes, Barney is playing in front of a home crowd. And yes, Anderson has struggled for form of late. But the Flying Scotsman’s record against RVB is simply staggering.
He’s won each of their last 11 meetings, and it’s not often the world number two is priced as short as 4/7, but we’ve found a slightly better acca booster than backing Anderson to win.
Barney can be incredibly hit and miss when it comes to scoring high, and often relies on cover shots, while his opponent seems to hit maximums for fun.
Whether he wins, draws or loses, it’s rarely the two-time world champion’s scoring that lets him down – and we reckon he’ll be hitting the treble 20 bed at a frightening rate tonight.
Phil Taylor v Michael van Gerwen – Highest checkout over 121.5
Taylor will be buzzing ahead of this one. As usual, Van Gerwen heads into a match as huge odds-on favourite to win, but there’s just no value in that market as far as we’re concerned.
As two of the greatest players ever to pick up a dart, the Power and MVG will be keen to put on a show for the crowd.
With that in mind, a massive finish has to be on the cards, doesn’t it?
Kim Huybrechts v Adrian Lewis – Lewis to win
He’s been frustratingly inconsistent thus far, but last week’s victory over Taylor will have done Lewis the world of good.
Up next for Jackpot is a meeting with Huybrechts, who finds himself level on points with Klassen at the bottom of the table.
He’s certainly made it difficult for his five previous opponents, but if Lewis throws anything like how he did against the Power, he should breeze through this clash.
