Premier League Darts Dublin
Hamilton +2.5 legs at 5/4 (PP) – Price is wrong here given Hamilton throws first meaning that Taylor has to win by 2 clear breaks of throw for it to be covered. Hamilton won the last 2 vs Taylor as well & usually keeps things close. Price looks well out of place.
Van Gerwen at 10/11 (various) looks a great bet. Slight dip in the final match of the night last week but had 5 consecutive 100+ averages before that. Won an event at the weekend & was runner-up in the other. Will steamroll Barney if Barney’s doubles are off like last week.
Thornton -1 at 13/10 (PP) on the 180s handicap vs Wade. Backing the numbers as Wade averages 1 every 4.37 legs, Thornton 1 every 2.61.
Whitlock’s highest checkout (vs. Hamilton) to be over 99.5 at 5/6 (WH) Come in 4 of the last 6 weeks & Whitlock doubled well last week.
Barney vs Taylor – Wait for Taylor’s odds to rise if he struggles vs Hamilton. Key thing in this one is Taylor won their last 18 on TV. If you can get Taylor at odds against then it’s well worth taking given RvB’s continued failings against him.
MvG vs Lewis – MvG -2.5 legs at 10/11 appeals given it’s only 1 break of throw & Lewis has been gash for some time. Would wait for in-play though as van Gerwen was poor second time out last week and might not get the balance right in between matches again here.
