TOP two Michael van Gerwen and Dave Chisnall are looking to secure a play-off place on Thursday night as the darts Premier League hits Cardiff.
Van Gerwen and Gary Anderson both play twice on the night and meet in the final match in which the Dutchman is 21-20 at Boylesports for victory and the Flying Scotsman is 39-19 at 888sport.
Van Gerwen earlier takes on James Wade and needs just one win on the night to guarantee a top-four finish.
Chizzy could do the same with a victory and takes on reigning champ Raymond van Barneveld who has hit a bit of form recently, winning two in a row and ending van Gerwen’s unbeaten record last week. Chisnall looks tempting at 11-8 with Ladbrokes while Barney is 6-4 at Skybet.
The night’s other matches see Stephen Bunting take on Anderson and Phil Taylor do battle with Adrian Lewis. Taylor is decent value at 11-10 with BetVictor against his fellow Stoke dartist who is going for a fourth win on the bounce and is 2-1 at Paddy Power.
There’s third-round action at the Barcelona Open tennis, where defending champ Kei Nishikori is expected to breeze past Santiago Giraldo, while Maria Sharapova puts her WTA Stuttgart on the line against Angelique Kerber.
Other Thursday sporting highlights include World Championship snooker and Test cricket so post your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.
