The gaps are beginning to develop in this year’s Premier League Darts, with nine points separating Michael van Gerwen in top spot and Dave Chisnall down in eighth.
And as we approach the business end of the campaign, we’ve asked our generous darts traders to give us the best value they can on an accumulator covering every game in Liverpool.
As always, they responded in fine fashion.
Forget the 16/1 this bet would normally pay, we’re going 20/1 about our five-fold landing. So let’s run you through our selections…
Gary Anderson to beat Dave Chisnall
Chizzy hasn’t won in his last four Premier League outings, while he’s only beaten Anderson four times in their previous 18 meetings – with the Flying Scotsman boasting 14 victories to his name.
Anderson struggled last time out against Adrian Lewis, losing 7-3. But he hasn’t lost back-to-back games in this competition since the early stages of 2016.
He’s odds-on to win, but we still reckon the two-time world champ represents great value.
Michael van Gerwen to beat Peter Wright
Snakebite is certainly on the way up – but he just can’t seem to get the job done against the world number one on the big stage. Yes, he’s beaten him twice already this year – yet both of those victories came off screen.
Wright also lost 7-3 when the pair met in the Premier League back in February. Van Gerwen is finding his feet again in this year’s competition, and he can edge further clear at the top of the table with victory over the Scot.
Adrian Lewis v Raymond van Barneveld: Most 180s – Lewis
This is a tough one to call, and to be honest we wouldn’t be surprised to see it finish level. That’s why we’ve avoided the Match Betting here and have turned our attention to the 180s market.
Both are powerful scorers, but if we had to side with one on their game, it’d be Jackpot.
The pair met back on Night One, where Barney won 7-5. He edged the 180s Match Bet that night, too – so we reckon Lewis will be itching to exact revenge.
Phil Taylor to beat James Wade
Three wins in a row for The Power have put him in a great position to achieve a top four finish this year. And while Wade has a habit of nicking points off the big boys, he’s lost his last four matches, making it hard for us to see how he comes out on top in this one.
Also, The Machine hasn’t beaten Taylor in the Premier League since 2009.
Gary Anderson to beat Peter Wright
Things don’t get any easier for Snakebite this week, as he faces world number two, Gary Anderson, in the final match of the night.
And as we’re expecting the Flying Scotsman to win his opening match of the evening and Wright to lose, we think the former will head into this one with more confidence.
What’s more, Anderson could head into this clash knowing a win we see him climb above Wright in the table. That should be all the motivation he needs to come through the tie unscathed.
