IT’S week four of the Premier League darts tonight and the only player with a perfect record so far is dazzling Dutchman Michael van Gerwen.
The bold MVG beat world champ Gary Anderson last week and followed it up with his third UK Open qualifier win of the year, taking his record to an incredible 39 wins from his last 40 matches.
Tonight in Belfast the Dutchman faces Adrian Lewis, who on his game is a match for the best. Jackpot is available at a chunky 16-5 with Sportingbet and the draw is priced up at 19-4 at 888sport. But van Gerwen’s current form is too good to ignore and I’m on him at 8-13 with Coral.
James Wade is the only other unbeaten player – with two draws and a win so far – but I fancy Anderson to end that record tonight. The Flying Scotsman is 10-11 at William Hill against the Englishman (12-5, Betfair), with the draw 4-1.
Phil Taylor has been back to his imperious best in recent weeks and can rack up another victory at 2-5 with Boylesports when he faces struggling Peter Wright.
Kim Huybrechts v Dave Chisnall looks like being a tight affair and Stephen Bunting takes on Raymond van Barneveld who’s still searching for his first win after chucking away a huge lead to draw with Wright last week.
There’s also BDO World Trophy first-round action today with the likes of Martin Adams and Tony O’Shea on the oche.
On the tennis front it’s another busy day with ATP and WTA matches from Dubai, Doha and Acapulco and plenty of stars on show.
There’s also the likes of golf, cricket and NBA so let’s hear your sporting tips and chat and good luck with your bets.
