Premier League Darts betting: Taylor can get the job done again while MVG’s 180 superiority can countPublished April 27, 2016
It’s week 13 of the Betway Premier League Darts this Thursday with action coming from the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham.
Both Peter Wright and Gary Anderson will play twice on the night, facing each other in the concluding match on the card. Given the outcome of their first matches will have a direct bearing on each player’s mind-set and consequent performance in their second game, this is a confrontation best left alone from a betting viewpoint.
Wright’s opening opponent is Phil Taylor who is now guaranteed his place in the final four and would appear to have little incentive to win. However, this is Phil Taylor who wouldn’t let a toddler beat him at a game of marbles and on all known form success for the great man looks a formality.
The amazing thing about Phil Taylor is his ability to win despite posting stats which should see him lose. Last week, for example, the multiple World Champion posted a 89.61 3-dart average when beating Robert Thornton 7-2. Not only was this average lower than the rival he beat, it was also lower than that recorded by any player on the night.
But win Taylor does and he has just the one 2016 Premier League defeat on his CV. That was inflicted on week 1 of the event back at the start of February. His run of five consecutive victories will surely continue against Peter Wright who remarkably topped the league standings after four weeks but now sits only seventh.
Ladbrokes is the best place to shop as they are going top-price 8/15 about a Taylor victory and go clear top-price about our next selection, 4/9 about Michael van Gerwen to post more 180’s than his rival, James Wade.
ade has posted thirty maximums during the course of this year’s league but MVG has an amazing 53 to his name. Thoses are all the stats you really need to know.
Certainly not get rich quick prices but 8/15 doubled-up with 4/9 equates to almost 5/4 which makes this particular double the recommended play on Thursday night.
