The 19th World Darts Matchplay gets under-way at the Blackpool Winter Gardens on July 21st, kicking off a competitive week of darts betting action. Phil “The Power” Taylor has dominated this tournament, winning fourteen of the eighteen times that it has been held. Taylor is back again this year at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, and is looking to earn his fifth consecutive World Matchplay Darts title.

It has been a phenomenal career for Taylor at this event, and online bookmaker BetFred is offering a Money Back Special surrounding Taylor, for 2012 World Matchplay Darts betting. Taylor is such an overwhelming favourite to win the tournament outright, that second favourite is James Wade, who is way back out at 10/1, compared to Phil Taylor who is in at 13/8. Huge discrepancies there for your darts betting!

However, if Phil Taylor loses in the final of the World Matchplay Darts this season, then BetFred will refund all losing Tournament outright singles. So a fantastic offer worth snapping up there, if you are looking at anyone other than Taylor to do the job. It is James Wade who has the best tournament history behind Taylor at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, so he does represent a decent, value outside bet (and let’s face it, all bets beyond Phil Taylor are outside shots).

Double World Champion Adrian Lewis is trading at around 12/1, along with the dangerous floater Simon Whitlock. The draw for the 2012 World Matchplay darts tournament has been very kind to Phil Taylor and he should get a pretty straight forward run to the final. Can anyone stop him? Taylor is priced at 13/8 vs The Field at 4/7 at online bookmaker BetFred, that’s how strong of a favourite “The Power” is.

Online bookmaker BetFred offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The highly rated bookie will match the value of your first bet on a new account between £5 and £50 with a free bet. This is a generous welcome bonus offer from BetFred, and a great way to get started with all of your sports betting.

2012 World Match Play Darts Betting Info
The 2012 World Match Play darts betting will get under-way on July 21st, with the biggest names in the sport coming together for one of the great darts events. This is held at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, and this will be the 19th edition of the popular event, organised by the PDC. The top 16 in the PDC along with sixteen ProTour qualifiers will be in Blackpool for the big event, and each of the 16 seeds will start off a first round match against one of the qualifiers. This is a straight legs knockout format, but the difference here is that in order for a player to progress, they must win by two clear legs. There will be no deciding legs, and if the match is resting at 9-9, they keep playing on until someone goes two legs clear, just like a final set decider in tennis would. The action starts on July 21st, and the final will be played on the 29th.

2012 World Match Play Darts Betting Favourite and Defending Champion
Little surprise about the man who is defending champion here. This is one of the tournaments which Phil Taylor has made his own, and The Power goes as defending champion and favourite. Phil Taylor has won 12 of the 18 editions so far, including the last four in a row. So he is going to be the one to beat. He is still looking for a really big win this season though, with only the Premier League and the World Cup of Darts of note this season so far. He enjoys his time at the Blackpool Winter Gardens and is such a strong bet. Looking at the draw ahead, he should have easy passage to the final if he is on top of his game. In his quarter there is possibly only Andy Hamilton to be concerned with, while in his half of the draw, the next highest seed is Scotland’s Gary Anderson who hasn’t been in top form. So seeing Phil Taylor in full flight in the 2012 World Match Play darts is likely to happen. This is a quick paced race to the following rounds, and that is where Taylor excels, just like in the Premier League format. Taylor’s last six titles in this event have all been won with a three dart average of over 100. Taylor is trading as favourite at 13/8 with online bookmaker BetFred.

Other Contenders
Double world champion Adrian Lewis should naturally be a big contender here. He is perhaps, the best player in the field in terms of turning up and producing rapid, heavy fire. His inconsistency still is a bit of a problem at times, but his talent is top notch. He goes as the second seed, but is in the bottom half of the draw which is packed with potential finalists, so his job is going to be harder than Taylor’s in reaching the final. Still, in with a pretty even shot at the final and therefore a decent shot.

So too is England’s James Wade. He has been the nearly man of the World Match Play darts over the event years, reaching four of the last six finals, but managing just one win. That came in 2007 when he beat Terry Jenkins in the final. In his other three finals he has gone up against Phil Taylor, including last year, when he really has not had a look in at all. Had a surprisingly decent Premier League season, an event in which he generally falls a little bit flat, but he has a strong enough track record in this event to make a nuisance of himself. A tricky quarter though with Simon Whitlock and Kevin Painter floating around.

Simon Whitlock, aka The Wizard could be a decent proposition at the Blackpool Winter Gardens. Whitlock looked pretty handy and consistent through the Premier League season and is good enough to make a quarter final appearance, where he would likely run into James Wade. So not a bad option on him, and he did make the semi final in 2010. The darts world is just waiting for him to step up and take a PDC Premier event like this. Even though he is in decent form, he is still one of the chasing pack really behind the other contenders.

Raymond van Barneveld, who has taken a European Tour title this season, could be a dangerous floater in the bottom half of the draw. He is though in the same quarter as Adrian Lewis and you would back the Englishman there really. Wes Newton also is trading well, and could be the biggest benefactor in the top half of the draw, should Phil Taylor slip up along the way to the semi finals.

Best Outside Bet
Well, it has to be Gary Anderson here. He never found his footing the Premier League really, and wasn’t helped with the death of his father disrupting things. He just hasn’t been at his all powerful best in 2012 at all, but did fire off a nine dart finish in June at the UK Open. However, he lost in the fourth round there, not really looking as if he would take the title. However, he is a class act when he pulls it all together and a heavy scorer. Is his form and confidence there? No, that is why he is an outside bet at 16/1 with online bookmaker BetFred.

After winning the 2012 Premier League darts crown, Phil Taylor has attracted some new interest in the 2013 PDC Darts World Championship betting market. The Power, after topping the Premier League table this season, went into Finals night on Thursday as firm favourite. After seeing of English compatriot James Wade in the semi finals, Taylor went on to face Australia’s Simon Whitlock. The Wizard put up a decent fight, but it was Taylor who ran out 10-7 winner to claim his 6th Premier League crown in the eight years which it has been running. So now Taylor will be heavily backed to go out an reclaim his World Title crown.

Taylor, top of the PDC Order of Merit is already ante post favourite in 2013 PDC Darts World Championship betting. But odds on him have just been trimmed slightly after his Premier League triumph on Thursday night. The Premier League title was the first PDC Premier title of the year for Taylor.

The 2013 PDC Darts World Championship betting will start on December 13th, 2012 with the final being played on January 1st, 2013. The Thirteen, yes, thirteen times World Champion (fifteen if you count his two BDO World Championship titles too) hasn’t tasted victory at the event though for two years. He has seen his apprentice Adrian Lewis win back to back World Championships, but Taylor still has the fight and the hunger.

Phil Taylor

The semi finals of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting season are set, as we head towards Finals Night at the O2 Arena in London on May 17th. The top four players from the regular Premier League season booked their places in the final, and now it is a straight knock-out to lift the title. Just two matches stand between one of the four and some glory. Of course Phil Taylor is there, after winning the league, but there are some surprise names alongside him ready to contest. One of the ones not making it, is defending champion Gary Anderson. Nor is double world champion Adrian Lewis. The bookies have little doubt as to who they think is going to win the title outright, it is of course, The Power, who lost only one match during the regular season. But he only lost once last season too, and then lost in the semi finals against Adrian Lewis. So we could still be in for some drama.

Phil Taylor v James Wade
This is first versus fourth from the final standings, and yet Taylor finishing a massive eleven points ahead of fellow countryman Wade. Taylor picked up two wins over Wade this season, with an 8-2 win on March 22nd, and then a recent 8-1 demolition job on May 3rd. So Taylor is firm favourite here, because Wade has really struggled throughout his career to make any kind of indent on Taylor. The Power was scoring phenomenally throughout the regular season of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting finishing with a three darts average of 107.95 compared to Wade’s 95.82 for the season. So it really should be Taylor all the way and hard to go against him. Taylor was the only player to finish in the positive for Leg Difference on the season, and the only one to finish with a three figure 3-dart average. He is the one to beat. Taylor beat both Whitlock and Hamilton twice this season. Wade, who won the 2009 Premier League Darts title, won just one of his last six matches this season, but it was his strong middle part of the season which carried him through.
Taylor 2/9, Wade 7/2 at Bet Victor

Simon Whitlock v Andy Hamilton
The Aussie Wizard has been a solid performer all season and won 50% of his games, so you can’t argue with that. There has always been a nearly-man kind of feel about Whitlock, but he has put together some good consistency this season, to a lot of people’s surprise He isn’t a bad player, obviously, but always seemed to lack a bit of cutting edge against the top guns. He will be happy with his semi final draw, simply because by finishing second, he avoided Taylor in the semi’s. Andy Hamilton is a surprise name in the final four, because he looked to be down and out for most of the season. He scrapped brilliantly though and put together a strong run of form to end the season with, and forced his way into third place from nowhere. Hamilton went unbeaten in his last five and one of those matches was a massively important 8-4 win over Whitlock a couple of weeks ago. The two drew earlier in the season, so this should be a close match. Would edge Hamilton, just because he has been scrapping so well.

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.

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.

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.
Anderson 5/6, Hamilton 13/8, Draw 9/2 at Bet Victor
