DARTS BETTING: Stoke-on-Trent based bet365 make Phil Taylor a 9/2 shot to win 20 PDC world titles after he landed his 15th against Simon Whitlock on Sunday.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth “Phil may be nearing the half century mark in terms of age, but his dedication to the sport means he’s still head and shoulders above his opponents and he still looks to have plenty left in the tank.”
bet365 also make Taylor 8/11 to make the 2010 BBC Sports Personality shortlist and 33/1 to lift the trophy.
“Every year there seems to be a stewards enquiry into how somebody like Phil Taylor can be overlooked for the final ten.
“Recognition outside the world of darts is certainly overdue” added Freeth.
