The Premier League Darts hits Sheffield for week ten with Van Gerwen against Taylor the highlight. Wayne Mardle is predicting a repeat of the draw from last time the two giants clashed, as he previews at the evening's matches...
Simon only just about escaped from relegation, but the reason he was down there in first place was his inconsistency. He needs to play well for an entire match not just phases. Robert, on the other hand, is firing on every cylinder going. He beat Whitlock just three weeks ago with an average of well over 105 and I think he'll emerge victorious again.
Recommended Bet: Thornton to win at 1.84/5
Wade has two matches on the night and that's tough. If his adrenaline drops off at any point that will make it even tougher than it already is and, with the second match of the night v MVG likely to be on James' mind, Lewis can take advantage. I'll take Adrian to win the match at a decent price.
Recommended Bet: Lewis to win at 2.6213/8
Their first match ended in a draw and I think this will go the same way. Both are brilliant when the pressure is on. It's going to be tight all the way. These two could well be fighting out the final come may.
Recommended Bet: Draw at 4.57/2
Andy's form has dropped off a tad; he's not been as consistent as normal and that's been a problem. Barney is a man who's happy with the way things are going. And his record against the Hammer suggests he'll win this with ease.
Recommended Bet: Van Barneveld to win 7-2
James Wade v Michael van Gerwen
James Wade takes on MVG at the end of the evening in a second game for both players. The previous games on the night will have an impact on how the match will turn out so I'll avoid any predictions on the overall outcome, but a safe bet either way is Wade for Highest Checkout. James is one of the best double hitters in world darts and has already hit 10 three figure checkouts during the Premier League this year, compared to two for Michael.
Recommended Bet: Wade to hit the Highest Checkout at 1.715/7
