Premier League Darts: Back MVG to out-maximum Jackpot and Whitlock to record his first win

Simon Whitlock has endured a nightmare start to this year's Premier League
Simon Whitlock has endured a nightmare start to this year's Premier League

Betfair Darts expert Wayne Mardle casts his experienced eye across this week's Premier League fixtures and likes the look of Simon Whitlock to record his first win...

"If The Beard to be Feared plays to anywhere near his "B" game I think he wins this."

Adrian Lewis v Michael van Gerwen

I really like the look and price of Michael van Gerwen to out-180 Adrian Lewis in the first of my selections this week. While it's folly to back against Jackpot in any match (he's more than capable of annihilating opponents when in the mood), the 180s market is certainly something worth looking at for the following reason:

Michael isn't switching quite so much after hitting a first treble twenty, and so he is well worth backing at 2.35/4 or better to out-maximum Lewis on Thursday. I think the game will be close, so I'm expecting at least five from Michael and that should be enough to get us a profit.

Recommended Bet
Back Michael van Gerwen to hit the most 180s at around 2.35/4

Simon Whitlock v Robert Thornton 

This will be Robert's second game of the night. Wes Newton won't be traveling to Exeter for tonight's Premier League as he fights off a bout of tonsillitis. 

Playing twice in a night isn't ideal for anyone, Robert will certainly not be as fresh as Simon come the last game - he will have already played Peter Wright and IF he loses that, the adrenaline is likely to drop, and getting yourself back in fighting mode is not always easy.

I think there's an opportunity for Whitlock backers to have something to shout about here (remember he is pointless so far). Nothing is coming that easy for the big Aussie at the moment, and for me this is an opportunity he simply has to take. I think he can.

Recommended Bet

Back Simon Whitlock to beat Robert Thornton at [2.52]
