Live on Skysports 1: Thu 19.00: Week 5 of the darts Premier League comes from Manchester where Taylor and Anderson lock horns.
Surely the eventual Premier League winner will come from this contest and this could be a nice little sneak preview of a final-to-come on May 19th.
Punters will immediately look to the tie as they find it hard to split the two, a 4/1 outcome with Ladbrokes, but perhaps it could be wiser to split stakes about a narrow 8-6 for either player; in favour of Taylor is a large 9/1 with William Hill while the same narrow win for Anderson is 6/1 with bet365.
Simon Whitlock blew away a below-par Terry Jenkins last week and looks to add another win against Adrian Lewis at 11/8 with Paddy Power. Lewis’ win over Taylor on the opening day remains his only win but with high averages and close fought games, is due that 2nd win; he can and should be backed at 6/4 with Betdaq.
Wade and Barneveld will slog out a close match, the tie at 4/1 (Totesport) can’t be ignored but perhaps it’s a match best left from your coupon.
Terry Jenkins seems to have found a 3-dart level around the 90 mark and should be beaten soundly by Mark Webster, who has looked great aside from a hammering at the hands of the confident Gary Anderson.
