HELLO, good afternoon and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you all well. I have some strong fancies for tonight’s Premier League Darts in Sheffield as the Steel City hosts its biggest night of sport before the start of this year’s World Snooker Championships at the Crucible.
Gary Anderson, who has won two-thirds of his matches thus far, should have more than enough to ease past Webster, whose unusual softpaw technique still gives me the jitters. While Anderson’s price of 1.45 is a little short for my liking, it still amounts to a decent ROI for us all and I’d advise backing the Scotman here.
Of last week’s winners, Lewis’ league record has a noticeable symmetry about it – played 9, won four, drawn 1, lost four, points 9, while his opponent’s is a more stark won 5, lost 4. In other words, Lewis is wholly unpredictable and Barney either wins handsomely or loses sorrowfully. For those reasons I’m advising a swerve here for the first time on my blog, although I do have a strong fancy for more than 7.5 180s to be hit, so that might be your best option rather than trusting on trading on the match odds in-running. Barney came up against a simply inspired Whitlock last week who would have given anyone a game in that sort of form. While the big Dutchman sometimes flatters to deceive, I’m a fan of his languid approach and effortless technique, as opposed to Lewis’s phantom flan flinging. I’d also advise a big back on over 7.5 pints of forehead sweat being produced by the pair.
James Wade, who takes on The Wizard tonight, has a less than exemplary record in this season’s Premier League and is unlikely to progress any further than the league stage as he’s currently in the bottom three. Whitlock was impressive in his Dutchman demolition last week and I fancy him to continue in this vein tonight. Back a Whitlock win.
And finally, Taylor won last week and he should comfortably post the best stats of the night when he takes to the oche later. The Power is once again firing on all 100.84 cyclinders and another NAP dutch of Taylor 8-0, 8-1 and 8-2 is the order of the day in this fixture against an out-of-sorts Jenkins.
Good luck and happy punting!
Remember: It’s no use looking cocky on the oche if you can’t do the okey-cokey
