James Wade is looking to bounce straight back from last week's heavy defeat

The Premier League bandwagon rolls into Birmingham for Week 13 of this year's tournament and our man Wayne Mardle has highlighted two bets for you to consider on the night, including James 'The Machine' Wade bouncing back from last week's humiliating whitewash...


"Of the two James has played better in the Premier League so far, the stats don't lie, James is three points ahead in the averages on 97, but more importantly he's over 10% better on the double stats, and that's where this game should be won and lost."

Recommended Bet
Back James Wade to Win @ 2.265/4

James Wade v Stephen Bunting
Thursday, 20:45

I felt a bit sorry for James last week when he was made to look insignificant against an awesome Michael Van Gerwen, the 116.90 average that the Dutchman produced was simply too good for Wade, he could do nothing but stand and watch as Michael whitewashed him.

But to be fair, that average would have beat anyone on the night and I'm sure James will be thinking this match is much more winnable.

When the pair met in week one it was a draw and I can see this being a close affair again. James is a steady consistent type who punishes his opponents' mistakes while Stephen is much more of a flair player, he can do nothing of any note for parts of legs then go bang, 180, 146, game shot.

Of the two James has played better in the Premier League so far, the stats don't lie, James is three points ahead in the averages on 97, but more importantly h'se over 10% better on the double stats, and that's where this game should be won and lost. Wade is an opportunist and I feel pretty confident in saying Bunting will give James opportunities.

Dave Chisnall v Adrian Lewis
Thursday, 19:15

Every bet has to be the right odds and for that reason alone I'm siding with Dave Chisnall to hit more maximums than Adrain.

Chizzy has hit 14 more 180's than the two time World Champion, I know a draw with this bet is a possibility but Dave at 2.26/5 is a good price, I expected and odds-on quote. Even in some of his poorest performances Dave has still managed four & five maximums.

Adrian is up there with the heaviest of scorers but I feel he may just have one eye on the last game of the evening against Barney (Adrian is playing twice).

Recommended Bet
Back Chisnall Most 180s @ 2.26/5
