Premier League Darts acca

£10 returns £134 in Rotterdam
We are set for an emotional night as the Premier League Darts moves to Holland, and the Rotterdam Ahoy. The likes of Barney and MVG are used to big occasions over here, but that’ll be nothing compared to the reception promised in their home land.
You can watch the action unfold live on Sky Sports from 7.00pm, and why not spice up your viewing with a winning bet? Click here to back your Premier League opinions with cash, or read on as we lay out our accumulator, with every £10 down paying £134…..
Wade beat Klaasen
Klaasen will be boosted by a packed-out arena, but will that be enough to knock Wade off his stride? We won’t know until we see The Machine in action, but he’s a spiteful player, and loves playing the pantomime villain. Losing has become a habit for Klaasen, and if Wade can start fast, he’ll pile on the pressure. Coral’s even money looks value.
Wright beat Chisnall
Chizzy really hasn’t had a lot to shout about in this tournament so far, and was whacked 7-3 in a top of the bill tussle with Gary Anderson in Glasgow. He was led to the slaughter that night in front of a crazy crowd who wanted to see their man win big. That would’ve knocked any confidence he had left for six. Wright to pick through the bones with a win is fair enough at 8/13.
Anderson beat Barneveld
One of the best games of the night, and the long-term king of Dutch darts meets an in-form Gary Anderson who goes into the week just two points off Peter Wright in top-spot. Anderson won last week and has suffered just one loss in his first half-dozen. Barney’s form reads an uninspiring 2-2-2. The Flying Scotsman is good enough for me at 8/13.
Lewis beat Huybrechts
You won’t see me making a habit of backing Adrian Lewis in this competition, he just doesn’t seem worth the risk at the moment. Against Huybrechts, who is the only man in the Premier League yet to pick up a win, it’s an easy decision however. Lewis beat Phil Taylor 7-4 last week, and a repeat of that performance will see him win comfortably again. 5/6 is better than I expected.
Van Gerwen beat Taylor
Wow, what a pairing we have here, the old master vs the man who will be king. MVG will rule this sport with an iron fist when Taylor retires at the end of the season, and should force the pass-over early, by winning this match and winning the Premier League outright. Given a chance to do it in front of a Dutch crowd is just too special to miss. 2/5 on MVG, I’d take shorter.
