IT’S another big night of top-class Premier League arras action and pick of the bunch is the mouthwatering showdown between Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson.
Van Gerwen beat the Flying Scotsman 6-2 at the weekend in the German Darts Championship final and has been in stunning form since losing to Anderson at the World Championships in January, winning 31 of his 32 matches and averaging over 103.
Both have started the Premier League campaign in style with two straight wins and world champ Anderson – priced up at 7-2 by bet365 – will be fired up for this one. However, I can’t go against the dazzling Dutchman on current form and am backing van Gerwen to win at evens with bet365.
Phil Taylor was on top of his game as he thrashed Adrian Lewis last week to bag his first points and can follow that up tonight in Liverpool with victory over Merseysider Stephen Bunting at 8-13 with BetVictor.
Lewis should bounce back with a win over Kim Huybrechts at 4-7 with Boylesports and the night’s other matches sees Raymond van Barneveld take on Peter Wright – with both aiming for their first win – and James Wade against Dave Chisnall.
England play their second game at the Cricket World Cup at 1am UK time and, following a hammering by Australia, they are now 1-2 at William Hill to get beaten by co-hosts New Zealand. Eoin Morgan is on a terrible run of form and is 5-6 to score 22 runs or less with Ian Bell 5-6 to manage 33 or more.
Given his recent poor form which includes four ducks in five games, it is 8-1 that Morgan is out for no score. His team are 13-8 for the win at William Hill.
Today’s sporting schedule also features golf, snooker and tennis among the highlights. Good luck with your bets and post your sporting tips and chat here.
