The bwin World Cup Of Darts takes place at the Sporthalle in Hamburg this weekend with a record 32 nations taking part.

The tournament has only been in existence since 2010 and wasn’t contested in 2011 so it’s remarkable that it’s attracted worldwide interest so quickly and testament to the popularity of darts across the globe. Each nation’s team is made up of two top-ranked players from that country and will be a straight knockout event this year. The first and second rounds taking place on Friday and Saturday with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final being completed on Sunday. There is a £200,000 prize fund up for grabs this year and the tournament has attracted some big names and some unfamiliar ones representing countries you wouldn’t normally associate with top-flight darts.

India (a general 1000/1), Russia (the same odds with Ladbrokes, Skybet and sportingbet) and Gibraltar (also a 1000/1 with sportingbet) are making their World Cup Of Darts debut but, as the odds suggest, would be surprise winners and most bookmakers agree that a final between the top two seeds, the Netherlands and England, is likely.

Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis again represent England and are bidding for a hat-trick of victories in the tournament having beaten Belgium‘s Huybrechts brothers (25/1 with sportingbet this time around) in last year’s final in Hamburg 12 months after getting the better of Australia. Simon Whitlock and Paul Nicholson were the Aussie pair in 2012 and have teamed up again. They are a best 12/1 and should reach the latter stages but Taylor and Lewis are preferred in the betting, with the sponsors best at 28/17. ‘The Power’ and ‘Jackpot’ won’t give up their crown without a battle but it’s difficult to get away from the Dutch.

Raymond van Barneveld was part of the Netherlands team which won the inaugural event in Houghton-le-Spring and showed he was no back number when taking the Premier League title recently, beating world champion van Gerwen in the final. Their general 6/4 quote leaves no margin for error but it will be a big surprise if they are not involved in the final.

Of the remainder, only Scotland look to have much of a chance of upsetting one of the top two seeds. World Championship finalist Peter Wright teams up with Robert Thornton and they have the class to reach finals day. The Scots are 13/2 with bwin but bookmakers don’t rate Wales. Mark Webster and Richie Burnett are 40/1 with sportingbet. BetVictor will lay you 10/3 that any other country but the Netherlands or England win Sunday’s final.

It is finals night this week in your 2014 Premier League Darts Betting. After a thrilling season, in which Phil Taylor failed to finish top of the ladder, it is down to the final four. The league-winning honour went to Mighty Mike, Michael van Gerwen, who held off a great challenge by his compatriot Raymond van Barneveld. Barney slumped to back to back defeats at the end of the season (one of them against Van Gerwen) to settle for second, while Van Gerwen won the Premier League for the second season running.

Joining them in the top four was Phil Taylor, who recovered resplendently from his terrible opening to the season to finish third, level on points with Van Barneveld, and also level with Gary Anderson who took fourth place. So now the season finale heads to The 02 in London on Thursday, May 22nd starting with the semi finals (best of 15 legs) and the Final itself (best of 19 legs).

Michael van Gerwen v Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barnaveld v Phil Taylor is the line up for the semi finals for Premier League darts betting. Credit to Anderson here because he beat both Van Gerwen and Van Barneveld during the end of season run in to make his way to the playoffs. In the season’s other meeting, back in March, Anderson scrapped well in a 5-7 defeat against the Dutchman. So this one may be closer than punters will be thinking, but still it is going to be hard to look past the 4/11 favouritism of Van Gerwen in the match up. From 21 previous encounters between the two, Mighty Mike holds a 14-7 lead.

The other semi final sees an old classic revive its head, as Phil Taylor takes on Van Barneveld. Taylor is trading as overwhelming favourite at 4/11 to bag the win as well, even though the two of them played out to two drawn matches during the regular season. Like the first semi, this should be tight, but if you are looking at form, then Taylor, who lost four of his first five matches of the season, went unbeaten in his last eleven, and while Barneveld put together a twelve match unbeaten streak during the season, he snapped it with those two defeats at the end. From 63 previous meetings, Taylor has won 48 of those encounters, to just 11 by Barneveld.

At this stage last season, Taylor beat Barneveld 8-4 in the semi finals, while Van Gerwen tore James Wade apart. So another Phil Taylor v Michael van Gerwen final is on the cards (Van Gerwen winning last year’s final 10-8).

Van Gerwen to win the Premier League title outright is trading at 5/4 with Paddy Power, with six-time winner Taylor at 6/4. Anderson and Barneveld are both 8/1 shots to land the title. A Michael van Gerwen v Phil Taylor option in the Name the Finalists market is a predictable odds on offer at 4/5.

The cream seems to have risen to the top. Phil Taylor came through his double duty trial in Birmingham last week to move himself up to third spot in the Premier League Darts standings. After a gruelling draw against Raymond van Barneveld, Taylor went on to wrap up a comfortable 7-2 win over Dave Chisnall in his second game of the night. That has left Taylor three points btheind Michael van Gerwen and Barneveld (who are level on 20 points). But the heat isn’t off The Power in the race for a top four finish and a place at finals night. That is because both Peter Wright and Gary Anderson are only only a point behind him.

Phil Taylor v Peter Wright is therefore the big clash of the week as the action moves on to Newcastle, the penultimate week of the regular season. A win for Taylor would confirm a place in the top four, while a win for Scotland’s Wright would keep the race wide open. Wright beat Taylor 7-4 back near the start of the season, but Taylor is on a nine match undefeated streak, while Wright has only won one of his last five. That will keep supremacy in the favour of Taylor, who is 4/7 to beat Wright (4/1) on Thursday.

Gary Anderson is the other man in the play off mix and he needs to capitalise on a big week in Birmingham last week, where he caused a massive upset in beating leader Michael van Gerwen 7-4. The Scot is in pretty decent form too, with three wins and two draws in his last five. He goes up against Dave Chisnall, who has lost his last three on the bounce. So Anderson, at 5/6 to beat Chisnall looks likely to keep alive his push for a top four finish. It should be a tense night on Tyneside.

The night’s other big match sees a Michael van Gerwen v Raymond van Barneveld showdown. The two are tied at the top of the pile and will both will be looking for a win which will give themselves an edge in the battle to finish top. It was Barneveld who took a 7-5 win when the two met earlier in the season, producing a tremendous 107 three dart average in that matchup in Glasgow. Barneveld is 23/10 to win, with Mighty Mike at 11/10. Adrian Lewis v Robert Thornton is the other game of the night, both already having been eliminated for a chance of a top four finish.

Phil Taylor

The race for a top four spot is still very much alive in Premier League darts betting, as the action moves on to the NIA, Birmingham this week. There are just two weeks left of the regular season after this one. Dutch duo of Michael Van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld both continued to solidify their spots in the top four after taking convincing wins over Dave Chisnall and Adrian Lewis respectively, last week.

Both can have a big say in what is likely to be the race for fourth this week, as Raymond van Barneveld v Phil Taylor is the big match on the cards, while Van Gerwen takes on Gary Anderson, who starts the week level on points with fourth-placed Taylor. Van Gerwen is trading as 11/17 favourite to beat Anderson (10/3), while Taylor is favourite to take the win over Van Barneveld (the two drawing 6-6 when they met earlier in the season).

It is double duty for Taylor this week, as he faces Dave Chisnall in the last match of the evening. Taylor beat Chisnall earlier in the season and is odds on to repeat that success. Chisnall has an outside shot still of making the top four, but would really need to rattle out wins in both of his games in Birmingham, facing up to Robert Thornton (who can’t make the top four) in his other match. As Chisnall has more to play for, he is favourite to top that duel.

The night’s other match in Premier League Darts betting this week sees Adrian Lewis take on Peter Wright. Wright recovered from a three match losing streak to beat Robert Thornton last week, and with Lewis on a seven match winless streak in the Premier League and unlikely to trouble the top four, Wright is narrow favourite in the match.

There are just four weeks left of the regular season for 2014 Premier League darts betting. The table is starting to take shape now, with the Dutch duo of Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld looking likely to make it through to finals night. They are the top two in the league and they have left a big scrap for the remaining two spots behind them, and Phil Taylor is trending towards one of those.

Robert Thornton and Gary Anderson are on double duty this week, having to play two matches each. Thornton looks out of the finals night picture as he is already seven points adrift of the top four and hasn’t won any of his last five matches. That will put him as underdog against Peter Wright and Gary Anderson, both of which have a big say in who will be finishing inside the top four this season. Wright, after losing just one of his first nine matches, has hit a slump in losing his last three, losing against Dave Chisnall last week.

Anderson is plodding along nicely with back to back wins and is around even money favourite to beat Thornton in the last game of the night on Thursday in Manchester. Anderson’s other game is against Phil Taylor, and the Scot is 7/2 underdog there. Taylor starts the night in fourth place, just a point ahead of Anderson, so a pretty big clash there, but with The Power turning up the heat in winning his last three and going unbeaten in six, it is he who is running at 4/7 favourite to beat Anderson. Taylor scored a massive revenge over Michael van Gerwen in Aberdeen last week, The Power putting on one of his famous powerhouse displays to romp to a 7-4 victory with a 106 three dart average.

The night’s two other games sees second placed Raymond van Barneveld go up against Adrian Lewis, who, like Robert Thornton and Peter Wright, is another man slumping right now. Lewis hasn’t taken a win in his last six Premier League matches either, losing the last three on the trot.

That should be a good chance for Barneveld to keep up the pressure on leader Michael van Gerwen, who is a point clear at the summit over his countryman. Van Gerwen will go as heavy 2/5 favourite in his match against Dave Chisnall, who himself has a lot to play for as he is only three points out of the top four.

Michael van Gerwen 6/5, Phil Taylor 7/4, Raymond van Barneveld 8/1, Gary Anderson 10/1, Peter Wright 14/1, Adrian lewis 14/1, Dave Chisnall 80/1, Robert Thornton 300/1

Phil Taylor

Premier League Darts Betting is hotting up now with Phil Taylor clawing his way into contention in the top four. Taylor gained some revenge over Adrian Lewis for a loss earlier in the season, by taking a 7-4 win last week in Sheffield. Taylor will be the subject of this week’s big clash as well, as he now goes toe to toe in Aberdeen on Thursday night against leader Michael van Gerwen. The first Phil Taylor v Michael van Gerwen betting match-up earlier in the season ended in a resounding 7-0 victory for the Dutchman.

Both are trending well now in good form in the Premier League and this will be Taylor’s big shot at clawing his way even closer to the top spot after such a rough start to the season. The Power starts the game five points adrift of leader Mighty Mike. Van Gerwen is priced at 13/10 for the match win, with Taylor trading at 8/5 to pick up maximum points. Should be a fascinating battle and it is double duty for Van Gerwen this week as he also has to take on Adrian Lewis in the last game of the night. Van Gerwen is 5/6 favourite to win that game against Lewis at 13/5.

Adrian Lewis’s other match of the night sees him go up against Gary Anderson, who he starts the night level on points with. It has been a four match stretch now for Lewis without a win, while Anderson has taken two in the last three. Peter Wright, who had lost just the one match over the first half of the season, hit a major stumbling block last week as he lost both of his matches, going down against Raymond van Barneveld and Gary Anderson. Wright is still in the top four and could get his chance to pick up a win again as he takes on Chisnall. Wright is 11/10 favourite to take the match win.

Sitting in eighth, and therefore last place, is Robert Thornton who faces a big uphill struggle to make it into the top four at this rate. He has lost his last two on the bounce and has only managed the one win this season, all the way back on week 3. That’s seven matches without a win posted for him, and he goes as 5/2 underdog against Raymond van Barneveld (10/11) this week, the Dutchman looking to hold onto second spot.

Michael van Gerwen 11/10, Phil Taylor 9/4, Adrian Lewis 10/1, Peter Wright 11/1, Raymond van Barneveld 11/1, Gary Anderson 14/1, Dave Chisnall 100/1, Robert Thornton 100/1

Premier League Darts betting moves into the second phase of the season. Wes Newton and Simon Whitlock were relegated last week after finishing in the bottom two spots, leaving the remaining eight to scrap it out for the top four spots and a place at finals night. It is on to the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield this week, with Raymond van Barneveld and Peter Wright taking double shifts.

League leader Michael van Gerwen, who lost just one of his first nine matches, looks as if he will remain comfortable at the top of the pile as he takes on Robert Thornton, who was eighth at the halfway stage and only survived because of a better leg difference over Wes Newton. Mighty Mike is strong 1/2 favourite to take the win over Thornton at 6/1. Gerwen took a 7-5 win over the Scotsman when they met earlier in the season.

The big clash of the night is Phil Taylor v Adrian Lewis. The Power was crushed 7-3 by Lewis earlier in the season, and so is out for revenge. Taylor looks to have put a shaky start behind him and now is four matches unbeaten, winning three of those. He goes as Even money favourite to take down Lewis, who is actually unbeaten in five now, but has drawn four of those, including the last three on the bounce.

Peter Wright will be hoping to keep up his assault on a place at finals night, as he heads into action this week in second place. Like Van Gerwen he has lost just the one game and he goes back into action against Gary Anderson who he beat 7-5 last week in Cardiff. Wright is trading at 5/4, with Anderson at 8/5 to win the match, and Wright is on double duty as he takes on Raymond Barneveld in the final match of the night. Barneveld has drawn his last five matches on the bounce and is Even money to beat Dave Chisnall in his first match of the night and at 6/4 to take the win over Wright to close the evening out.

Simon Whitlock (Australia)

2014 Premier League darts betting heads to the halfway stage of the season this week, and it is crunch time for the bunch looking over their shoulders nervously at the bottom two. Following Thursday’s round of matches at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, the bottom two will get relegated, leaving the remaining eight to duke it out over the second half of the season for a top four finish which will send them through the finals night.

Australia’s Simon Whitlock has already been relegated and so even if the Wizard manages to pull off a shock win over Michael van Gerwen on Thursday, it wouldn’t do him any good. The table-topping Gerwen is likely going to be strong for Whitlock and the Dutchman is 2/7 favourite to win his match.

Starting the week in the other relegation spot is Wes Newton and he takes on Dave Chisnall on Thursday night in a massive relegation scrap. Both players have the same points on the board, but Chisnall has a better leg-difference of eight over Newton, so Newton needs to bust out a win here somehow. He has actually won twice this season, where Chisnall has only taken one win. Newton is 9/5 to take the victory, with Chisnall at 5/4.

Also level on points with Chisnall and Newton is Robert Thornton who has a tough match as he takes on Phil Taylor. So the Scotsman need a win, but will really be hoping that Newton loses against Chisnall because Thorton has a massive leg-difference advantage over Newton. So if they both finish level on points, Newton will probably tumble.

Taylor, after an indifferent season has done enough to secure himself a place in the second half of the season, sitting on seven points. Even if he loses to Thornton, he’s not going to take the drop, no matter what happens in the Chisnall v Newton match. There’s a heavyweight clash between Adrian Lewis (6/5) and Raymond van Barneveld (28/17) in the top four. The night’s other match sees second placed Peter Wright, who lost for the first time last week against Van Gerwen, take on Gary Anderson.

It was a night of drawn matches last week in the Premier League of Darts, with three of the five matches between drawn. 2014 Premier League darts betting this week moves on to the 02 in Dublin and this is the penultimate night of action before the bottom two in the table get relegated. So the pressure is on and the night’s big match will be Phil Taylor v Raymond van Barneveld.

It has been a rough ride for Taylor this season, with just three wins from his seven played so far, but he posted a 7-1 win over Wes Newton last week to climb out of the drop zone. He’s still only a point clear though and will be looking to consolidate against his old rival. Barneveld is lodged inside the top four having suffered just the one defeat all season and the big Dutchman Will be looking for more points to put him near the top of the table.

Taylor is priced up at 4/7 with Paddy Power to beat Barneveld, the Dutchman drawing his last two matches. There was a change at the top after last week’s round of matches, with Michael van Gerwen taking over supremacy again but only on leg difference over Peter Wright. Wright still remains the only unbeaten player in the Premier League this season, and it was he who held Barneveld to a tie last week in Leeds.

Van Gerwen and Wright will square off in Dublin in what should be a great ding-dong duel. Wright has been impressive this season on his Premier League debut, having beaten Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis along the way. But he goes as 10/3 underdog against Michael van Gerwen this week. Mighty Mike is priced up at 4/7 to pick up the points and pull himself clear at the top of the table.

The week’s other matches sees Gary Anderson take on Wes Newton, Adrian Lewis face dave Chisnall and West Newton v Simon Whitlock. The last match on the card is a battle between the bottom two in the pile. Whitlock has managed just the three points all season, with Newton on five, but in the drop zone because of being worse off than Dave Chisnall in leg difference.

It is hard to have not gotten swept up in all the thrills of 2014 Premier League Darts betting, because it has been full of surprises and wide open this year. Debutant Peter Wright still tops the table after six weeks of action, remaining unbeaten with four wins and two draws in an impressive season. The Scotsman kept his fantastic season going with a comprehensive 7-3 win over Simon Whitlock last week in Nottingham.

The action moves on to Leeds this week, and after this round, there will be just two games each left for the players before the bottom two of the ten get relegated ahead of the second half of the season. Phil Taylor is one of the men in danger of taking the drop, in a big shock for the season. Taylor took a 7-5 win over Dave Chisnall last week, only his second victory of the season, but has closed the gap on some of those above him.

Taylor takes on Wes Newton this week and odds on at 5/11 to pick up the points, while the table topping Peter Wright squares off against Raymond van Barneveld in the night’s big match. Not too much to split the two players in that match, with Wright At 5/4 and Barneveld at 8/5 respectively to take the win. Barneveld has been ticking along nicely, only taking the one defeat this season and will draw level on points with Wright if the Dutchman takes a win.

Barneveld’s  compatriot Michael Van Gerwen got back to winning ways last week, thumping Wes Newton 7-1. Mighty Mike goes up against Gary Anderson this week, with the Scotsman looking for a win which could put him in the top four. In the night’s other matches, Adrian Lewis faces off against Robert Thornton, while Dave Chisnall faces Simon Whitlock.
