IT’S a clash of the titans in week six of the Premier League Darts on Thursday night.
World No.1 Michael van Gerwen – fresh from winning the UK Open at the weekend – goes up against 16-times world champ Phil Taylor for the first time this year.
Van Gerwen is still unbeaten in the Premier League, having drawn his last two matches, and Coral make him 6-5 favourite.
The Power, a point behind van Gerwen in the standings, is 9-5 at 888sport with the draw 7-2 at Paddy Power. It should be a fiercely-fought affair and Skybet’s 6-5 for over 11.5 legs looks tempting.
Table-topper Dave Chisnall can gain revenge for his weekend UK Open defeat when he takes on fellow St Helens dartist Stephen Bunting again tonight.
Chisnall is evens at BetVictor, who make his opponent 2-1, and with both players big hitters the 21-20 offered by Betfair for over 6.5 maximums is worth a look.
Completing the Nottingham line-up is Gary Anderson v Adrian Lewis, Raymond van Barneveld taking on James Wade and Kim Huybrechts versus UK Open runner-up Peter Wright.
At the Cricket World England round off their miserable campaign against Afghanistan in the early hours of Friday morning and New Zealand take on Bangladesh.
Elsewhere on Thursday there’s men’s and women’s tennis action from the Indian Wells Masters plus Paris-Nice cycling stage four and NBA matches.
