Premier League Darts: Back Chizzy to add to the Power's woes

Will Dave Chisnall add to Phil Taylor's woes?
Will Dave Chisnall add to Phil Taylor's woes?

Both of Wayne Mardle's recommended bets proved successful last Thursday including his best bet of the Premier League so far, so who does our man fancy to prevail this week when the action moves to Nottingham...

"Chizzy has been playing quite well without winning, but he's also proving very difficult to beat and I fancy he'll avoid defeat here. At the odds, he's worth backing to win."

Back Chisnall to Win @ 3.3512/5


Dave Chisnall v Phil Taylor

At the odds I simply have to oppose The Power. Chizzy is the price he should be at if Phil was firing on all cylinders but as just one win in the Premier League so far tells you, he is most certainly not firing on all cylinders.

In fact, the 16-time champion of the world is in real danger of being eliminated - his slump in form has been incredibly dramatic as last year was Taylor's most successful in terms of TV wins. As the stats will tell you, and they don't lie, Phil was playing better than ever.

In any sport confidence is a huge factor, and when it's at zero it's impossible to fancy that person to play to the best of their abilities. Of course, we all know the Power has the ability to bang in a big average and dispose of Chizzy in double quick time but on current form it's unlikely.

Taylor's performance in the UK Open, where he lost in his first game to the relatively unknown Aden Kirk doesn't inspire any confidence either.

Chizzy has been playing quite well without winning, but he's also proving very difficult to beat and I fancy he'll avoid defeat here. At the odds, he's worth backing to win.

Chizzy is a huge scorer and I fancy that to continue on Thursday night in Nottingham. He's hit 23 maximums so far in his five Premier League games; Phil has hit just 12.

After last week's 'best bet so far' came up trumps we're on a roll, so let's stick with the 'form' man and hope that he hits his usual high amount of 180s.
