[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my latest blog. Now-defunct red top News of the World recently announced Blackpool as the new holiday destination of choice for stay-at-home UK tourists in the face of the increasing strength of the Euro. While this will be great news for visitors from the Netherlands and other parts of the Eurozone heading to the Empress Ballroom, a similar power shift is occurring in the darts world. Phil’ The Power’ Taylor has looked more vulnerable on the oche in the last six months than he has for over a decade and the chances of a non-Englishman (particularly if you count assimilated Aussie Paul Nicholson in their number) taking the World Matchplay title on July 24 are much higher than this time last year. The 18th World Matchplay tournament takes place...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening & welcome to the cocktail bar. I'm not one to crow, but that was a phenomenal night of tipping by anyone's standards (see previous blog, posted this morning, entitled [i]Tonight's tungsten-tipped tip top tips[/i]). Well done to everyone who followed my blog tonight & for those of you who had the guts to roll over your profits feel free to treat yourself to something nice, like a holiday & first class travel. Please excuse me, I'm being handed a large glass of champers. In case you missed it, I tipped Wade to win, Jenkins +2.5, over 7.5 180s in the Anderson/Whitlock game, a trade on the draw in the same match and finally the NAP which was to dutch the correct scores of Taylor 8-1, 8-2, 8-3. [b]THIS... IS... EASY!!![/b] [b]Remember:[/b] You have to ...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you well. My most loyal followers will be well aware that I have landed my last three NAPS on the Premier League Darts, so this week I’ll be looking to continue that winning streak. In a curious quirk of the fixtures, each match tonight sees a winner from last week play a loser from last week. The first match, on initial inspection, looks more like a Before And After slimming advert than a darts contest as it features the ever-expanding bespectacled left-hander James Wade, versus the altogether more slimline version in the shape of Mark Webster. Wade’s Premier League chances looked dead and buried three weeks ago, but he suddenly seems to be rejuvenated after two consecutive wins. Webster, meanwhile, is on a shocking...

[b]HELLO[/b], 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. [b]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[/b]. 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...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you well. After last week’s three out of four success (and the advice to sit back and relax once the first three had been safely landed) I’m aiming to capitalise on my fine run of form and maximise the income for you, my loyal and ever-growing band of followers. With the risk of repeating myself repeating myself repeating myself and s-s-s-sounding like a stuck r-r-r-record, statistically speaking this season’s Premier League has produced far fewer draws than it should have done, particularly given that seven of the eight competitors are so evenly matched. The exception is, of course, The Power, whose ‘A’ game is simply eons ahead of the rest. Tonight’s match-ups see Anderson play Jenkins, Lewis take...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get,” said Forrest Gump, who is my third favourite film character after Ralph ‘Papa’ Thorson and Nigel Tufnel. To be fair to Gump, he was only paraphrasing his mother and he was a credit to himself, his family and his country. We could all learn a lot from him. Betting, however, is nothing like a box of chocolates. You either win, in which case you can eat what you like, or you lose, in which case it’s back on the salad cream sandwiches. I don’t know about you, my followers, but I’ve never had a salad cream-flavoured truffle. It’s doubtful even a certain Mr W Wonka would create such an abomination. I digress. Tonight’s darts offers some incredible...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. Once again I’m banging the drum for the draw, or certainly trading on it, and with the Barney/Anderson clash being the closest match-up tonight my recommendation is to trade on the draw in this fixture. Here’s how you should go about it. Start off by backing the draw before the off at around 5.3 – if it drops to below 5, forget it as that’s poor value based on what’s happened over the last few weeks. Imagine you stuck £10 on the draw at 5.3 – you immediately stand to win £43 – or lose £10. What you need to do now is put in a lay on the draw of £26 at 2.0. This way, if it’s a draw you’re guaranteed £17 & if either of the players win you get £16. It’s a risk-free bet – as soon as the £26 draw lay is matched...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my blog. Having had to give, albeit regrettably, one of my people in the know his concrete slippers yesterday evening, I’m relying on my own instincts tonight ahead of tonight’s darts matches. It’s week six of the Premier League Darts and we still haven’t had a draw. We haven’t had a whitewash yet either and while an 8-0 is highly unlikely I have a sneaky feeling The Power may come close. [i]The big NAP selection might come as a surprise to you, my loyal followers, but Taylor looked as if he was functioning closer to his imperious best last week in defeating erstwhile table-topper Gary Anderson, so [b]a ‘dutch’ of Taylor 8-1 and 8-2 over Whitlock should pay out at odds of at least 17/1[/b] and that’s a corking bet[/i], especially...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. I once had a chat with Midge Ure, the cheery little Scottish fellow from new wave/electronic outfit Ultravox, and he stated: “We’d never even been to Vienna.” To be fair to Midge, Warren, Billy and Chris, they did a tremendous job of evoking the atmosphere of one of central Europe’s most decadent cities. I’ve never been to Vienna either, as it’s notoriously full of secret agents – most of whom are disguised as tour guides, bar tenders and museum curators – besides, I can’t abide those frightful Viennese whirls. I have, however, been to Manchester - and the Arena - therefore I feel perfectly positioned to offer you some advice ahead of tonight’s Premier League Darts action. It won’t surprise you to hear that ...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my latest blog. There aren’t many better things in life than being able to afford to buy the best stuff as and when you require it. While some of us, such as myself, are gifted enough to coast along purely on our wit and wisdom, others aren’t quite so fortunate. I considered this earlier today when I was taking a brisk countryside stroll with my two pedigree beagles – Huckleberry and Baskerville. What better, then, than to provide you all with some more winning tips. My darts blog success rate so far is 100 per cent as I tipped The Power to win last week, along with trading by laying the favourites in the other three matches. Anderson contracted before the off for an easy ante-post trade, Whitlock was up 4-1 and down 5-4 before eventually...
