World Matchplay Tonight; Taylor Steps Up

DARTS BETTING: Live on Skysports 1: Tue from 19.00: Phil Taylor begins his bid for an 11th World Matchplay and is a crushing 1/33 with Coral to beat Barrie Bates tonight. Compare World Matchplay odds.

Tuesday night sees Phil Taylor take to the ockey for his 1st round tie with Barrie Bates and sadly for Barrie, nobody sees him getting through this one. The 1/33 on Taylor with Coral is completely unprofitable but Stan James have set the total-leg line at 13.5. Its likely Taylor will really punish Bates tonight and under 13.5 legs looks good at 10/11 (Stan James). Taylor is 2/5 to win his 11th World Matchplay at William Hill.

Monday night’s action had 2 notable casualties: 4th seed Mervyn King lost 10-4 to Jelle Klaasen, losing 8 legs in a row, and Bristol-based plasterer Steve Brown managed to beat world number 5 Terry Jenkins 10-6.

Klaasen can now be backed at 80/1 with Sportingbet for the tournament but must first take on the highly confident John Anderson in the 2nd round after Anderson recorded the first 10-0 whitewash at the World Matchplay event in 6 years. That match up will be on Thursday.

Simon Whitlock is looking good this year, the Aussie stamping his authority all over the 1st round with a 10-1 win against Tony Eccles. Whitlock is 12/1 with Ladbrokes and looks good to go far in this competition.

Colin Lloyd, the 2004 winner, and Kevin Painter clash in the night’s opening game – Lloyd is a tempting 10/11 with Skybet to triumph.
