DARTS BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 1: Thur 19:00 Week 12 of the Darts Premier League comes from the AECC in Aberdeen, where Ronnie Baxter faces James Wade.
Ronnie Baxter v James Wade:
Ronnie Baxter has lost form at the worst time coming into this crucial playoff decider, Baxter is 9/2 (Betdaq) to beat Wade and has not won since Round 8. James Wade has shown admirable fight against the league’s top 2 (Taylor and King) and is a skinny 1/2 with 888sport to win this encounter.
Van Barneveld v Jenkins:
This bottom of the table clash sees an out of sorts Van Barneveld take on a revitalised Jenkins. 2 rounds ago, Jenkins was bottom without a hope in the world but now, if he can notch another win here and at least 1 more in the next 2 rounds, there is an outside chance of Jenkins making a surprise trip to the Playoffs. Jenkins is a very generous 8/5 with Boylesports to make it a hattrick of wins, Barney is 5/4 fav with totesport. Betfair offer 9/1 about Jenkins sneaking into the playoffs.
Whitlock v Lewis
These two are battling it out for a playoff place, Simon Whitlock is the man with more points on the board. Boylesports make him 9/10 fav while Lewis can be backed at 2/1 with Bet365. This would reflect Lewis’s two losses on the bounce prior to this meeting.
Taylor is 4/7 with Skybet to remain unbeaten this season and go on to lift the trophy. Betdaq offer 2/5 for him just to win the trophy.
Skybet are certain that King (1/8), Wade (1/8), and Whitlock (1/4) are the men to make up the playoffs, Baxter can be had at 15/8.
