THE Premier League darts hits Birmingham on Thursday night with plenty at stake in the race for the semi-finals.
Phil Taylor aims to bounce back from successive draws when he takes on table-topper Michael van Gerwen. MVG’s price of 10-11 at BetVictor and Coral is hard to ignore while the Power is 12-5 at 888sport.
Raymond van Barneveld and Adrian Lewis both double up with two matches on the night, including a head-to-head to finish proceedings.
Barney’s first match is against Gary Anderson, who could clinch a play-off place with victory. The pair drew their last Premier League meeting and while Barney has been in fine form I’m willing to take a chance on Anderson at 10-11 with Bet365.
The other two matches on the night see Dave Chisnall take on Lewis and James Wade against Stephen Bunting.
At the World Snooker Championships Ronnie O’Sullivan is out after a shock quarter-final defeat to Stuart Bingham and Neil Robertson is also a goner. Judd Trump has now been cut to evens for the title.
Andy Murray begins his BMW Open title bid against Mishca Zverev on Thursday and elsewhere there’s the likes of Tour of Romandie cycling and Stateside sporting action.
