Simon Whitlock (Australia)

We are down to the fourteenth and final week of 2012 Premier League darts betting and while Phil Taylor has booked his place in the finals, joining him will be Aussie Simon Whitlock so there are just two remaining spots up for grabs. Thankfully, for excitement value, everything has gone down to the wire with five players still in contention to take those two remaining spots. So there is a great deal of excitement to come on Thursday, May 10th, as we head to the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle for the final night of the league match ups. The Finals Night of the 2012 Premier League darts will be held at the O2 Arena in London on May 17th. Defending Champion Gary Anderson won’t be there, as he is likely to finish bottom of the table and can’t make Finals night now.

Standings: Taylor 23pts, Whitlock 14pts, Lewis 12pts, Wade 12pts, Barneveld 12pts, Painter 11pts, Hamilton 11pts, Anderson 9pts.

Adrian Lewis V Simon Whitlock
Well, the pressure is all going to be on Adrian Lewis to churn out a win in this one. He is sitting in third place at the moment, but is one of three players on twelve points. Lewis, after a good run of form, really blew a big chance last week as he went down heavily against Kevin Painter. It wasn’t the greatest night of the Premier League season for Lewis and now he needs to muster up one more big effort just to get over the finish line. That defeat last week snapped a four match unbeaten run and it is no done deal for him yet, as he lost 8-4 against Whitlock earlier in the season. Aussie Whitlock has booked his place in the Finals of the 2012 Premier League darts after a surprisingly solid season. He choked last week as well though, going down against Andy Hamilton. That was The Wizard’s second defeat in a row, so is choking a bit. Still, the pressure is on Lewis. Nothing much to chose between them, but would just edge Lewis to strike.
Lewis 15/13, Draw 9/2, Whitlock 13/8 at Bet365

Andy Hamilton v Kevin Painter
A fascinating end of season match up between the two new-boys in their first season here. Both are still in with a chance of making the finals if other results go their way. They will both want Simon Whitlock to beat Lewis for starters, because both Hamilton and Painter are just a point back. So this is going to be a huge match and both scored big, morale boosting wins last week. Andy Hamilton, who has battled so well, but struggled to pick up wins all season, got the better of Simon Whitlock to keep his chances of reaching Finals night alive. That was a big win, and Hamilton is now unbeaten in four, after drawing his previous three before his triumph over Whitlock last week. Kevin Painter pulled out the stops when necessary as well, beating Adrian Lewis 8-3. Huge win there too, which keeps the Artist alive. Painter is now unbeaten in three, having picked up a bit of form at the end of season run in. Nothing much to split them, the darts are with Hamilton, and after beating Painter 8-5 earlier in the season, would just lean towards him.
Hamilton 5/4, Draw 9/2, Painter 11/8 at Bet Victor

Raymond van Barneveld v James Wade
Everything is at stake here for these two. A defeat and they know that they could be out of the top four. Both are on twelve points heading into the final week, but Wade is just edging things on Leg Difference. So there is a slight advantage, but it will mean nothing if he loses. So this is going to be a winner takes all affair, and the big match of the night. Very much looking forward to his one. Wade has probably edged things over the course of the season, but only has one win in his last four matches. He was thumped 8-1 by Phil Taylor last week, which won’t have done too much for his confidence. Barneveld too, for all of his heavy scoring this season, he just hasn’t been able to finish off matches and has drawn his last two, so he isn’t in the strongest form either. This is going to be a real show down and probably a very close and tense match. A draw could be enough to suit both, it will depend on what happens in the Whitlock v Lewis match, and if there is a winner in the Painter v Hamilton match. Anything could happen here. Wade took an 8-6 win over the Dutchman earlier in the season. Would just take that to be reversed this time around.
Barneveld 13/8, Draw 9/2, Wade 6/5 at Bet365

Gary Anderson v Phil Taylor
Well, we round out the regular season with a top v bottom match. Never thought for a moment at the start of the season that this was going to be the situation. Well, we expected Phil Taylor to power his way to the top of the table, but it has been a very distracted and disappointing season for Gary Anderson, who has never really gotten going. He is out of contention for finals night, so would expect Taylor just to finish the job in a meaningless match.
Anderson 6/1, Draw 8/1, Taylor 5/18 at Bet Victor

Phil Taylor

Just two weeks left in the regular season of 2012 Premier League darts betting, and the only thing confirmed is that Phil Taylor has topped the table. The other three places to reach the knock-out stages are still up for grabs. Second placed Simon Whitlock needs just one more win to confirm his place in the finals, and behind him then, it genuinely looks as if it will be a three way race for the remaining two spots, as Wade, Lewis and Barneveld are in the strongest positions. So two more crucial nights to come in your 2012 Premier League darts betting before we hit finals night. Phil Taylor is there. Who will join him? We are at the NIA Birmingham for this week’s action, on Thursday, May 3rd

Standings: Taylor 21pts, Whitlock 14pts, Wade 12pts, Lewis 12pts, Barneveld 11pts, Painter 9pts, Hamilton 9pts, Anderson 8pts

Simon Whitlock v Andy Hamilton
Aussie Simon Whitlock can book himself a place in the finals if he can take maximum points off Andy Hamilton. The Wizard was rolling along nicely until he ran into Phil Taylor last week and got demolished 8-3. Still, Whitlock has been surprisingly consistent this season, and looks a good bet to make it through to finals night. Andy Hamilton is still trying all that he can to make an impact in his debut season, and he would need to win this one to be in with any kind of chance of making finals night. He needs two wins from the remaining two matches, and needs other results to go his way. He is fighting well, and making a nuisance of himself, and has earned himself back to back draws in the past two weeks against James Wade and Gary Anderson. Hamilton earned a draw against Whitlock earlier in the season and wouldn’t be too surprised to see that happen again. Would edge things just with Whitlock though.
Whitlock 1.61, Draw 6.5, Hamilton 4.00 at Bet365

Gary Anderson v Raymond van Barneveld
Barneveld needs this win to try and muscle his way into the top four. He just on the outskirts at the moment by a single point, so he still needs other results to go his way. But to keep himself in with a chance he has to pick up two points here realistically, and then there will be the massive showdown against James Wade next week. Barneveld drew 7-7 with Adrian Lewis last week in a grinding match, but it means the Dutchman hasn’t won in three matches now. So he is falling away a little bit. But Gary Anderson is out of the running altogether Mathematically there is an outside chance, but it would need a miracle. The defending champion just hasn’t been at the races this season, and although he ground out a draw against Adrian Lewis last week, Barneveld has to be much hungrier for this win you would think. However, he seems to just be teetering and he has had trouble closing out matches. So would edge Anderson.
Anderson 2.62, Draw 6.0, Barneveld 2.2 at Bet365

Kevin Painter v Adrian Lewis
The Artist Kevin Painter needs to wins from two if he is going to make the play-offs, which seems a little unlikely from this point. However, he would pull within one point of Adrian Lewis, who is fourth, if he could pick up a victory on Thursday night. Painter has struggled over the second half of the season, but has ground out three points from the last four available over the past couple of weeks. A battler, but would expect Lewis to finish off the job on Thursday. Lewis has been resurgent after having a very slow start to the season. He is unbeaten in his last five matches now heading into this, including a win over Phil Taylor two weeks ago. So the double World Champion looks in good shape to book a place in the finals. Just needs to get his head down though and see off the challenge of Painter. Although The Artist has been battling nicely, would expect the power of Lewis to come through.
Painter 5.0, Draw 6/5, Lewis 1.54 at Bet365

James Wade v Phil Taylor
Big match here for Wade, beause if he loses this and both Lewis and Barneveld win, then he will pushed outside of the top four. It is a tough finish to season for Lewis, who has to take on Barneveld next week. Wade, by and large, has been pretty decent over the course of the season, and is unbeaten in his last three. He picked up a draw against Kevin Painter last week, which he will have been disappointed about, so now he has to somehow get something out of Taylor. However, Wade has a horrible record against The Power, and not expecting that to change in Birmingham on Thursday. Phil Taylor bounced back from that defeat against Adrian Lewis by thumping second placed Simon Whitlock last week. Taylor has only dropped three points all season and has been in majestic form. Lewis really is his biggest threat, so he will want to see his apprentice miss the top four. Taylor has the league table all sewn up yet again, and would expect him to be relaxed. A relaxed Taylor is usually an unstoppable one, so would get behind him.
Wade 6.0, Draw 7.5, Taylor 1.4

2nd May 2012 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Sports Betting

Simon Whitlock (Australia)

Just three matches now in the jostling for position to get into the top four of the 2012 Premier League darts. Betting on the event was turned on its head last week, when Adrian Lewis took down Phil Taylor, who hadn’t lost all season until that point. So that shook the game up a little bit and has now made the race for the finishing places even more exciting. We head to the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Thursday, April 26th for the next instalment of the darts betting excitement. Despite his defeat last week, Taylor looks set to still win the league, while the defending Champion Gary Anderson is failing at the foot of the table. Things are very tight in the race to book a spot, as we preview this week’s action.

Standings: Taylor 19pts, Whitlock 14pts, Wade 11pts, Lewis 11pts, Barneveld 10pts, Painter 8pts, Hamilton 8pts, Anderson 7pts

James Wade v Kevin Painter
James Wade missed a bit of an opportunity last week to really solidify his chances of finishing in the top four. He is in third place on eleven points, but a loss wins for Adrian Lewis and Raymond van Barneveld this week will quickly see him pushed out. Wade could only manage a draw against Andy Hamilton who was bottom of the table going into last week’s round of matches. So, it was still a precious point in the end, but Wade, who has been in strong form over the second half of the Premier League season, needs to drive this match home against The Artist. Painter though rattled off a big win over Gary Anderson last week to snap his five match losing streak. He should be buoyed by that and a win over Wade would pull him within one point of his opponent. Big match, would turn to Wade for the cool temperament, and he beat Painter 8-6 earlier in the season.
Wade 4/7, Draw 11/2, Painter 10/3 at Paddy Power

Phil Taylor v Simon Whitlock
The only way that Phil Taylor is not going to win the Premier League table, is if he loses all three of his final matches, and Simon Whitlock wins all of his. Taylor went down to his first defeat of the season last week, losing out against his apprentice and double World Champions Adrian Lewis. So a big turn up for the books there, but The Power is still firmly in the driving seat here. Taylor recorded his lowest three dart average of the season last week, and needs to up his game against Whitlock on Thursday, in order to do the season double over the Aussie. Simon Whitlock scored an important victory over Raymond van Barneveld last week, which kept him on his own in second place, three points ahead of the nearest challengers. So Whitlock should be good for a second place finish, even if he doesn’t win this one. There has been a refreshing showing of consistency from the Aussie this season and like the way he is playing Would still back Taylor though in this match, which should be the headline of the night.
Taylor 4/11, Draw 13/2, Whitlock 5/1 at Bet365

Andy Hamilton v Raymond van Barneveld
Débutante Andy Hamilton is still scrapping after having a hard season in the Premier League. He has only won two matches this season, but his point against James Wade last week, was his fourth draw of the season. He really needs to pull out the stops now then and pick up a win, which would pull him level on points with Barneveld. Hamilton went down 8-6 against the Dutchman when they met earlier in the season, but Hamilton has held Whitlock to a draw and beaten Adrian Lewis in the past few weeks, so this is no done deal for Barneveld. Barney is in danger of falling off the pace with three defeats in his last four matches. He has been scoring heavily this season, but for some reason he just hasn’t been able to rack up as many wins as his play has generally deserved. Just on the outside of the top four, so there is still a chance we’ll see him in the finals, but this is going to have to be a must-win game for him. However, would tip Hamilton here slightly, he seems to be more motivated.
Hamilton 9/4, Draw 5/1, Barneveld 4/5 at Bet Victor

Adrian Lewis v Gary Anderson
At the start of the season when this was scheduled, it should have been one of the crucial deciding matches of the season. However, it’s not, as defending champion Gary Anderson is rock bottom and after suffering a family bereavement, just hasn’t got back in the game. That’s understandable, but his form even before that looked a bit unsteady. He hasn’t been scoring anywhere near his best, nowhere near what he is capable of, and realistically needs three wins from the remaining here to get into the top four. Unlikely to happen, especially as he will face a fired up Adrian Lewis. Lewis looked down and out of the running for most of the season, but has turned his form around a bit, just at the right time. He is sitting inside the top four, and would suggest that he is going to be Taylor’s biggest challenger when it comes to Finals night, if Lewis can get into the top four. Big match for Lewis, who has far more to play for, far more at stake in this match than the slightly disinterested Anderson. So would look for Lewis to keep on trucking along.
Lewis 8/13, Draw 11/2, Anderson 11/4 at Paddy Power

Premier League Outright Winner Odds:
Taylor 4/7, Whitlock 6/1, Lewis 11/2, Wade 8/1, Barneveld 14/1 at Bet365

Phil Taylor

There are just four matches remaining now until the knock-out stage of the 2012 Premier League darts betting season. That means there is a maximum of eight points up for grabs remaining for the players. It also means that Phil The Power Taylor will confirm winning the league stage if he wins again this week. It is a done deal already really, because in order for him not to win the league, he would have to lose all of his remaining games, and have Simon Whitlock win all of his. It’s not going to happen, so congratulations Phil Taylor. Unofficially. Anyway, the Premier League season doesn’t end at the conclusion of the league matches, as the top four move on to contest the knock-out stage on finals night. So it is the race for the top four which is proving to be once again, far more interesting than Taylor’s dominance.

Standings: Taylor 19pts, Whitlock 12pts, Wade 10pts, Barneveld 10pts, Lewis 9pts, Anderson 7, Hamilton 7, Painter 6pts

Raymond van Barneveld v Simon Whitlock
Once against Raymond van Barneveld came unstuck against Phil Taylor last week. Once again, Barney was scoring well, averaging just over one hundred with his three dart average. Once again it wasn’t enough to take down Taylor, who ran away with an 8-3 victory Barneveld is the league’s second highest scorer this season, but his form has still been a bit patchy. This is now a major match up against Whitlock, because Barney needs the win to pull level, or else he could hand second spot to the Aussie and leave himself in a race to claim one of the remaining two spots. Simon Whitlock continued his solid season, backing up an 8-2 win over defending champion Gary Anderson in the previous week, with an 8-5 win over Kevin The Artist Painter. These two produced a great draw on the first week of the new season. Would expect it to be close, but the Wizard is edging things at the moment.
Barneveld 13/10, Draw 9/2, Whitlock 11/8 at Bet365

Gary Anderson v Kevin Painter
Defending champion Gary Anderson managed to only pick up one point from a double header last week in Sheffield. He has only managed seven points for the season and is looking well below par. Probably not that interested, his season being interrupted by the passing away of his father. So he is not a strong player to back at the moment. Anderson lost against Painter on the first week of the new season, in a big shock result really. Even though Painter is bottom of the league and on a five match losing streak, he has actually been decently competitive. Wouldn’t be too surprised to see him turn up and take down a lack lustre Anderson, even though he will be underdog to do so.
Anderson 4/5, Draw 9/2, Painter 5/2 at SkyBet

James Wade v Andy Hamilton
Big kudos went to James Wade last week, as he demolished Gary Anderson 8-3 in the opening match of the night. He needed that bounce back win after losing out against Adrian Lewis the week before, and that kept Wade on track for a top four spot. Wade has been one of the better players, unquestionably, over the second half of the season, and while he went down 8-5 against Hamilton in week one, he looks in good enough nick to turn that around. Andy Hamilton has found the going tough in his first Premier League season, but he earned a valuable point last week against Gary Anderson. Hamilton mathematically could still play his way into contention for a top four spot, especially if he picks up a win here. However, the wins have been at a premium for him, and the good form of Wade should decide this match.
Wade 4/6, Draw 11/2, Hamilton 10/3 at Paddy Power

Phil Taylor v Adrian Lewis
The showcase finale for the night in Bournemouth, the clash between Phil The Power Taylor and the double world champion Adrian Lewis. These two produced a remarkable 7-7 draw on the first night of the new season, as Lewis had Taylor on the ropes, until The Power blitzed back from 5-0 and then 6-1 down in the match to earn a draw. That was a remarkable outcome in one of the greatest Premier League darts matches ever. Hopefully we will get to see the same level of excitement again this week. Taylor’s three dart average on that night was a remarkable 112, and he has a 109 three dart average for the season. Adrian Lewis’s? 96. That is the difference, even though Lewis is a double World Champion. Lewis didn’t’ play last week, and although he has won his last three matches now, up until then, he was bumbling along in some pretty indifferent form. Can Lewis respond with a win over his mentor? He really needs too if he is going to get into the frame for the top four. But as always, going against Taylor is a pretty tough thing to do.
Taylor 2/5, Draw 13/2, Lewis 5/1 at Bet365

Phil Taylor

We are really getting down to the business end of the 2012 Premier League darts betting season now, with just five weeks remaining in the race for the top four spots. Phil Taylor remains unstoppable and can wrap up top spot in the regular season this week if results go his way. Meanwhile the battle behind him for a top four place remains pretty tight, with just four points separating bottom from second place. So everything is still on the line, and this where a couple of back to back wins can pay huge dividends. We are off to the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield this week, for an important evening in Premier League Darts betting.

Standings: Taylor 17pts, Whitlock 10pt, Barneveld 10pts, Lewis 9pts, Wade 8pts, Anderson 6pts, Painter 6pts, Hamilton 6pts

James Wade V Gary Anderson
England’s James would couldn’t follow up his previous week’s demolition job of an 8-0 win over Simon Whitlock last week. Wade went down against Adrian Lewis and was heavily out-gunned in that. Last week’s results dropped Wade outside of the top four, but there is still a lot to play for, because he is just one point out of the running. So this is going to be a big week for him, as he takes on Scot Gary Anderson, who is two points behind him. However, Wade has played an extra match, so he really needs to keep Anderson off his heels with a win here. Anderson goes for a double header this week to make up his matches after missing a week. He has been sadly lacking a bit of an edge in this season’s Premier League, which is s surprise for the defending champion. Expected a bit more, and he went down heavily last week 8-2 against Whitlock. But if he can rattle off two wins on Thursday, he will be right back in contention again. Can see Wade just edging this one though, and getting some revenge for an 8-5 defeat earlier in the season.
Wade Evens, Anderson 11/8, Draw 9/2 at Totesport

Simon Whitlock v Kevin Painter
The Aussie Wizard Whitlock, bounced back from a whitewash against James Wade the previous week, to destroy defending Premier League champion Gary Anderson 8-2 last week. Again, this all points to the complete unpredictability surrounding Whitlock, but he has played himself up into second place in the table ahead of this week’s round of matches. Really needs to back up what he did last week with another win to consolidate his position Whitlock will be faovurite against Painter, who has now stretched his losing streak to four. Painter’s solid start to the season has transformed into struggles to get the job finished on the night. Battled well against Raymond van Barneveld last week, but fell short. Not in the confident mood really, so would back Whitlock to keep up his challenge for a place in the knock outs
Whitlock 8/15, Painter 11/4, Draw 5/1 at Bet365

Phil Taylor v Raymond van Barneveld
On powers the Power, with another win last week. He picked up an 8-6 win over Andy Hamilton, with his opponent putting up a pretty solid fight on the night. Still, that is now eight straight wins in a row and Taylor is a massive seven points ahead of his rivals and sure to book top spot. If Taylor wins again this week and both Whitlock and Barneveld lose, then top spot will have been won by Taylor. Again, and we say it week in week out, his scoring power is just phenomenal. This is another big match though, with Raymond van Barneveld going up against him, and big Barney has also been scoring well this season. Barneveld edged out Kevin Painter last week, but got hammered the week before that against Adrian Lewis. Taylor picked up an 8-4 win over Barneveld earlier in the season as well, so as good as Barneveld has been on his night, The Power should stroll on to another win.
Taylor 2/7, Barneveld 11/2, Draw 11/2 at Paddy Power

Andy Hamilton v Gary Anderson
In his first Premier League season, Andy Hamilton may be sitting at the bottom of the table, but he is not dead and buried yet. He needs to pick up a win against Anderson though to keep himself in with a slim chance of landing a top four place. However, Hamilton has managed only two wins this season, so he has an uphill battle. Hamilton went down 8-2 against Anderson at the start of the season, but the two are level on points going into this week’s fixture. However, this match will be the second of a double header night for Anderson, so he will have had a good warm up and that could work in the Scot’s favour. Anderson is the stronger of the two players, but neither are in any Anderson will be favourite to pick up the points though.

9th April 2012 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Sports Betting

Phil Taylor

2012 Premier League darts betting has taken on a little bit of an uneven look after last week, when Gary Anderson had to withdraw from the week’s action because of a family bereavement. It meant that Adrian Lewis had to play a double header last week, so he is a game ahead of everyone else now. It will balance back out when Lewis gets to sit out next week, and Anderson catches up with a double header. But one thing is at least certain, and that is Phil Taylor looks unstoppable on his quest to claim the Premier League title again. It is off to the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham for our Premier League Darts betting this week.

Standings: Taylor 15pts, Wade 8pts, Barneveld 8pts, Whitlock 8pts, Lewis 7pts, Anderson 6pts, Painter 6pts, Hamilton 6pts

Kevin Painter v Raymond van Barneveld
Kevin Painter didn’t get much of a look in last week in an 8-2 defeat against Phil Taylor, and after a solid start to the season, the Artist has now lost three in a row, and he is not faced with an easy match this week to try and break that run. He goes up against Raymond van Barneveld who completely underperformed last week, also suffering an 8-2 defeat, with the Dutchman going down against Adrian Lewis Barney has been pretty strong this season though in the Premier League and should be able to get himself back on track. Looks in good shape for a top four finish because there enough winnable games left for him. Barneveld won the meeting with Painter earlier in the season 8-5. Would back him to do it again.
Barneveld 8/11, Painter 2/1, Draw 9/2 at Bet Victor

Adrian Lewis v James Wade
Adrian Lewis will have been grateful for getting a second bite at a cherry last week, because he had a double header. He disappointingly went down 4-8 against Andy Hamilton in the first match of the night, but then really had his eye in as he took down Raymond van Barneveld in the final match of the night. So still a very mixed season from Adrian Lewis and he one point outside of the top four, but now he has played a game more. So he needs to plug away and battle for wins because he is facing an uphill struggle. He faces an in form James Wade, who bounced back from a defeat against Phil Taylor the previous week, to thrash Simon Whitlock 8-0. Wade has really come into his own lately after another sluggish start tot he season He is one of three players on eight points now, and is in a good position to push forward with a win here. Wade beat Lewis 8-5 earlier in the season and will be favourite to take this.
Wade 5/4, lewis 11/8, Draw 9/2 at Paddy Power 

Andy Hamilton v Phil Taylor
Hamilton has actually been showing a bit of fight in the past couple of weeks in an effort to get off the bottom of the table. He followed up a draw against Simon Whitlock with a win over World Champion Adrian Lewis last week, just about keeping himself in contention with eight points. However, he goes up against Phil Taylor this week and that should be a stop to any kind of moment. Premier League Darts betting is really all about Phil Taylor at the moment, as once again he looks incredibly powerful and consistent. He fired off his seventh straight win last week as he took down Kevin Painter in another wonderful display of high scoring. Taylor beat Hamilton 8-3 a few weeks ago and it is hard to see anything other than a similar result happening again.
Taylor 1/7, Draw 15/2, Hamilton 9/1 at Bet365 

Simon Whitlock v Gary Anderson
This is going to be a huge match for Gary Anderson after missing out on a match last week. He is two points behind Simon Whitlock, who is sitting in fourth place at the moment, and so Anderson can’t afford to fall further behind. However, with a win, defending Premier League champion Anderson could pull level with a game in hand. So a big night on his return, but he hasn’t been totally on top of his game. But then Simon Whitlock crashed and burned heavily last week, getting whitewashed by Wade. The Aussie has actually been outscoring Anderson this season and has been plodding along solidly enough without any flair, and still be susceptible to inconsistent appearances. Would just take Whitlock to bounce back though.

Simon Whitlock (Australia)

We turn past the half way point of the 2012 Premier League darts betting this week, as the players head to the CIA in Cardiff for round eight of fourteen. Now the darts betting gets a little bit clearer, because we can look back at the earlier season match ups for a guide for the rounds of events now. There is a different set up slightly this week with Gary Anderson having to pull out because of the recent death of his father. So that means that Adrian Lewis will get a double header this week, and then Anderson will balance it out on April 12th’s fixture list. So more great darts betting to look at this week, so here we go.

Adrian Lewis v Andy Hamilton
Adrian Lewis finally found his winning ways last week, as he took down Kevin Painter 8-3. It has been much more of a stuttering season in the Premier League for Lewis than expected, and that was his first win of the season, coming on week seven. He picked up three draws right at the start of the season, then went on a run of three defeats. Can he turn it all around now with three wins in a row? He is still in contention to grab fourth spot most likely to qualify for the knock outs, but needs to kick into gear. He faces Andy Hamilton who has been struggling to finish matches, but the Englishman did grab a 7-7 draw against Simon Whitlock last week. That leaves Hamilton still bottom of the table, but a draw was the same result which he pulled out against Lewis earlier in the season. A repeat of that would keep things tight in the bottom half, but Hamilton needs a win. Would suggest that the win will have done Lewis the power of good last week though.
Adrian Lewis 4/6, Andy Hamilton 9/4, Draw 9/2 at Bet Victor

 James Wade v Simon Whitlock
James Wade, who had gone on a great run of three straight wins ran into Phil Taylor last week. That put paid to that run of wins for Wade as he was blown aside by The Power. Still, after such a sluggish start to the season, Wade has looked pretty confident to his credit. Another tough match on the cards for him and he is still in the big tight fight in the bottom half of the table, with five players scrapping for that last qualification spot inside the top four. Aussie Whitlock won 8-4 against Wade earlier in the season, and with just two defeats in the 2012 Premier League darts, Whitlock actually looks a pretty solid prospect at the moment. Has generally been a bit shaky with his consistency, but seems to be churning out more finishes regularly and would back him over Wade who will have had his confidence knocked back down last week. Whitlock took a point off Andy Hamilton last week in a draw and think he just has the edge.
Simon Whitlock 13/10, James Wadwe 11/8, Draw 9/2 at Bet Victor 

Kevin Painter v Phil Taylor
Kevin Painter is in serious danger of running up three defeats in a row now, as he has to face the might of Phil Taylor this week. After a very competitive start to the season, Painter has just faced an uphill struggle in the past couple of weeks, going down against AdrianLewis last week and Raymond van Barneveld prior to that. There have been no such glitches for Phil Taylor who remains unbeaten on the season still, crushing James Wade 8-2 in Dublin last week. The scoring power of Taylor just remains phenomenal and would look a banker for your Premier League Darts betting this week. Taylor is the king of taking legs against the darts, and beat Painter 8-5 earlier in the season. Would expect the Taylor run to continue on Thursday.
Phil Taylor 1/7, Draw 15/2, Kevin Painter 9/1 at Bet365 

Raymond van Barneveld v Adrian Lewis
Van Barneveld scored a huge triumph last week when he took down defending Premier League darts champion Gary Anderson. That was an important win because it pushed the big Dutchman two points clear of Anderson in the standings instead of the other way around. That has signalled three defeats for Scotsman Anderson in a row now, and is struggling to hit his top form consistently. There’s no Anderson this week, as stated above, and Barneveld drew with Lewis earlier in the season. Like the way Barneveld is playing at the moment, very strong, scoring heavily and looking quite focused and actually a bit passionate about the whole affair. He is in stronger touch than Lewis at the moment.
Raymond van Barneveld 5/4, Adrian Lewis 5/4, Draw 4/1 at Bet365

Phil Taylor

We are on to week seven of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting and Phil Taylor remains the only man unbeaten in the season. We are in Dublin on Thursday for this one, and the jostling for position to get inside of the top four places in the table continues. Things are pretty tight this season, with the new guys playing their part, and the dip in form of World Champion Adrian Lewis being one of the biggest surprises. There are two big clashes on the card for Dublin, with Raymond van Barneveld taking on defending Premier League champion Gary Anderson, and Phil Taylor squaring off against the in form James Wade. Here is out Premier League darts betting preview for Thursday, March 22nd.

 

Andy Hamilton v Simon Whitlock

After a solid start to the new season, the troubles are continuing for Premier League débutante Andy Hamilton, who has now lost three on the bounce. That has left him with just one win on the season so far, and taking on Aussie Whitlock, who pulled off a big win last week doesn’t look an easy task. Hamilton has been battling well, but just hasn’t had the finishing power there lately. Simon Whitlock delivered a big blow to defending champion Gary Anderson last week, as he beat the Scot 8-6 in a great tussle. That was a Whitlock’s second win in a row, beating double world champion Adrian Lewis the week before. So he looks to be stepping up his game and will be favourite here, and starts the week in second place in the table. Great result last week, that should give him bags of confidence and hopefully he’ll put more consistency together.
Whitlock 8/15, Hamilton 13/5, Draw 5/1 at Bet365

 

Adrian Lewis v Kevin Painter

Double world champion Adrian Lewis is falling behind the pace at the moment, and still hasn’t picked up a win this season yet. After drawing his first three games of the season, he has followed that up with three defeats, including last week’s demise against James Wade. There have always been questions of consistency about Lewis in a prolonged event like this but we thought that he’d gotten over it. The matches are going to get tougher now until he breaks his slump. Good chance for him here, as he takes on Kevin Painter. The Artist has been having a having a mixed season, but generally doing alright. Three wins from his six matches is pretty solid and if he can take down the out of form Lewis, then really will be doing fine and in with a good shot of a top four finish. Needs to up his three dart average just a bit, but this could be a close match.
Lewis 4/6, Painter 12/5, Draw 5/1 at Boylesports

 

Raymond van Barneveld v Gary Anderson

Big Dutchman RVB got himself back on track last week after a couple of defeats. Barneveld has now won two, drawn two and lost two and is on six points with three other players. He has the second highest three dart average in the Premier League this season, so scoring well, just hasn’t quite had that clinical edge. His match against Gary Anderson on Thursday will be the big highlight, because it should be a heavy scoring affair. Scot Gary Anderson suffered a shock defeat last week, just as he was on a good roll of three straight wins. He went down against Simon Whitlock, and now needs to find a response this week. But this is a tough match to pull himself together for, as it really should be heavyweight affair. Should be a great one, but Barneveld is scoring heavier than Anderson at the moment.
Anderson 5/4, Barneveld 6/4, Draw 9/2 at Paddy Power

 

Phil Taylor v James Wade

The Power continued his unbeaten start to the season, with yet another win last week. It was a comfortable 8-3 victory over Andy Hamilton and Phil Taylor just looks untouchable at the moment. He is power personified, scoring so heavily, and just one of his six matches so far have ended under a 100 three dart average. James Wade continued his turnaround in good form last week in Exeter, as he rattled off an 8-6 win over Kevin Painter. That was his third win in a row and that is the momentum needed to take on Taylor. However, Wade has always struggled to match Taylor and because Taylor has the darts here, he will be strong favourite to keep going at the top of the league.
Taylor 1/3, Wade 9/2, Draw 11/2 at Bet Victor

It is off to Glasgow for week six of the Premier League Darts betting 2012. There were some surprising results in last week’s round at Brighton, all of which resulted in Phil Taylor opening a three point lead at the top of the table, and still remaining unbeaten for the season. The race for the other three places to qualify for the knockout stage looks as if it is going to be a closely ran thing this season. There were huge wins for Phil The Power Taylor last week, and notably Simon Whitlock, which has left the league table wide open. It is Taylor who still remains favourite to win the 2012 Premier League Darts tournament outright, as the players head North of the Border for Week 6.

James Wade v Adrian Lewis
A little surprisingly, England’s James Wade has come to life in the last fortnight, rattling off back to back wins after losing his first three matches this season. Wade took a major scalp of Raymond van Barneveld last week, in his best performance of 2012. Wade faces double World Champion Adrian Lewis this week, in what is an interesting match after Lewis has lost his last two. Wade has generally looked the more lack lustre out of the two, but Lewis just hasn’t been firing up to his usual standards over the past couple of weeks. There was a horrid 8-1 defeat against Gary Anderson and then defeat against Simon Whitlock last week. Lewis needs a response, goes against the darts here, but will still edge things as favourite to beat Wade. Not sure if Lewis is bad enough to lose three straight at the moment, but he is sitting bottom of the table with just three points from five matches. Wade hasn’t looked strong enough to win three either. Should be a good contest.
Lewis 11/8, Wade 11/10, Draw 9/2 at SkyBet

Gary Anderson v Simon Whitlock
The defending Premier League Champion Anderson, is sitting in second place in the table heading to Glasgow, three points back of Phil Taylor. After a run of three consecutive wins, Anderson lost last week to snap his streak. After beating Adrian Lewis 8-1 in Exeter, he faced Phil Taylor last week and lost 8-1 in a heavy defeat. Still, Anderson does look one of the strongest players in the tournament again and should be a shoo-in for a top four spot. He goes up against the unpredictable Simon Whitlock this week, and the Scot will be favourite to get back on track. Aussie Whitlock is doing alright, but you never quite know what you are going  to get from him. He is unpredictable and therefore you have to back the consistent player here, and that is Anderson. Anderson is a heavy scorer, although Whitlock is trudging along decently, actually with a higher three dart average than Anderson. Would take the Scot though this week, as he goes with the darts.
Anderson Evens, Whitlock 2/1, Draw 9/2 at Bet365

Phil Taylor v Andy Hamilton
The Power is going along strongly, as expected. His consistency is just remarkable, turning up week after week and just looking mighty. He breezed off an 8-1 win last week against arguably his stronger competition for the Premier League title, and that was Gary Anderson. For the first time in Premier League Darts betting 2012, Phil Taylor finished under a 100 three dart average for a match (99.89). He is just strong, head and shoulders above the competition at the moment, and he takes on Premier League new boy Andy Hamilton. Hamilton suffered a loss last week against fellow debutant Kevin Painter, which has left him on just three points from his five matches. Hamilton’s three dart average is the lowest in the Premier League at the moment. It should be one way traffic from Taylor.
Taylor 1/6, Draw 7/1, Hamilton 8/1 at Bet Victor

Raymond van Barneveld v Kevin Painter
Raymond van Barneveld will be looking for a bounce back performance after suffering defeat against James Wade last week. Barny has been playing well and scoring quite heavily, but he is just struggling with the killer instinct to put matches to bed. There has been just the one win, two draws and two defeats from him this season, but his play has suggested more than those rewards really. Still, he’s on four points and could do with a good win to keep himself in contention. But debutant Kevin Painter is going well at the moment, winning three from five and sitting joint second in the league. The Artist scored an important win over Andy Hamilton last week, which was a response to him losing in the previous week. He is proving to be a bit of a handful at a good shot at making the top four at the moment. Would expect  this one to be close, but Barneveld has outscored Painter this season.
Barneveld 7/10, Painter 23/10, Draw 9/2 at Boylesports

It is on to Exeter for week four of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting road show, and after the first three rounds there are just two unbeaten players left in the pack. One of them is the unsurprising figure of darts legend Phil Taylor, while the other, a newcomer to the Premier League circuit, Kevin Painter is making a strong start to his season debut. Still, it such early days that there is so much to play for still and this season has produced some thrilling matches already. As week four steps up to the oche, the big feature match of the night is the clash between defending Premier League champion Gary Anderson and double World Champion Adrian Lewis. Game on!

Kevin Painter v James Wade
New boy Painter, aka The Artist, picked up a fantastic win last week, ending Simon Whitlock’s unbeaten start to the season, taking the match 8-3 against the Aussie. After beating Gary Anderson on week one Painter came unstuck against Phil Taylor on week two, but bounced back from that defeat with a strong victory over Whitlock. That has actually left Painter as number two in the Premier League at the moment, a point behind leader Taylor. So there is a big chance for him to keep his fine start going with a match against the out of form James Wade. Wade has ran up three defeats in a row, as he just is lacking that cutting edge at the moment, despite scoring quite well. He found Gary Anderson too strong for him last week, and without any points on the board so far Wade needs to get something going. However, he is going against the darts here and Kevin Painter is looking pretty fired up at the moment, so The Artist could be in for another good night.
Painter 7/4, Wade 4/5, Draw 9/2 at SkyBet

Raymond van Barneveld v Andy Hamilton
This should be a pretty interesting match up, simply because we want to see how Barneveld reacts to his first defeat of the season last week. After picking up two draws from his opening two matches, the big Dutchman stumbled against Phil Taylor in Belfast last week. But he has been playing pretty well and he scored a three dart of average of over 100 in two of his three matches. His 105 three dart average last week would have been enough to beat most players on the night, but not Taylor, who is just steaming along at the moment. So Barneveld should be in line to pick up the  two points from this one, but newcomer Andy Hamilton will be buoyed by his performance last week. The Premier League debutant battled Adrian Lewis to a draw, and actually outscored the world champion. Too early in 2012 Premier League darts betting to judge what Hamilton might do, because he has had a mixed bag of results. He is going against the darts this week, and the experience and heavier scoring power of Raymond van Barneveld at the moment, really should be the Dutchman as favourite.
Barneveld Evens, Hamilton 11/8, Draw 9/2 at BetFred

Simon Whitlock v Phil Taylor
It is the Wizard’s turn to step up next and try and inflict a first defeat of the 2012 Premier League darts season on Taylor. Whitlock will have been bitterly disappointed at seeing his unbeaten start to the season go last week. More so because it was to one of the new boys, Kevin Painter, and it was a heavy 8-3 defeat too. Whitlock drew with Barneveld in the first week, beat James Wade in the second and then lost heavily. Just as we expected, the inconsistencies of The Wizard are still hovering around, too much so to back him too heavily in your darts betting. Especially when he goes up against Phil Taylor. The Power is just motoring along at the moment. After that epic draw against Adrian Lewis on week one, which is still one of the best matches ever in the tournament, Taylor hasn’t looked back. His three dart average is phenomenal and he fired off a season best 112.91 against Barneveld in Belfast last week. That was one of the tougher opponents out of the way and now Taylor will probably just go about his supremely consistent work and trundle through the season with not many defeats in sight. It is his ability to win legs against the throw which keeps him strong. Should be a win for him here.
Taylor 4/11, Whitlock 4/1, Draw 5/1 at Bet365

Gary Anderson v Adrian Lewis
This is the titanic struggle which should thrill the Belfast crowd, a rematch of last season’s Premier League Darts final. After losing to newcomer Kevin Painter on week one, there has been a turn around in form for Anderson, winning his last two matches, including last week’s win over the out of sort James Wade. Anderson will be looking for some home support advantage, as the Scot has been adopted by Somerset, where he is based, should he should have good backing. Anderson beat Lewis in the final of last year’s Premier League of darts, and so he will know that Lewis is out for revenge. You would have been offered pretty long odds at the start of the season if you had wanted to take a bet on Lewis drawing all three of his opening matches. After a stalemate against Phil Taylor and then Barneveld, Lewis was at it again last week, holding on to a draw against Andy Hamilton. Not sure that too much should be read into it all, because he is more of a consistent player than last year, and he is scoring pretty heavily (behind only to Taylor and Barneveld). He plays a fast game, and so does Anderson when they settle into their groove and this should be a truly titanic game of darts.
Lewis 6/5, Anderson 5/4, Draw 4/1 at SkyBet
