Premier League Darts: week three

£5 acca returns £120.80
The Premier League darts sets up in Leeds, with week three coming to us from the First Direct Arena. You can follow all the action from the oche live on Sky Sports, and our sports betting experts offer up an accumulator to help things along.
Giving a selection in every match, £5 invested pays £120.80 if we are on the right path. As always, prices and returns are correct at the time of writing. Read on as we take a glance at each leg…..
Take Anderson in civil war
An all-Scottish affair and, although there is very little between these men in the current rankings, or recent form, I am taking the Flying Scotsman to prevail at 4/6. Anderson ended the recent winning run of MVG with a draw in week one, and made light work of Klaasen last time.
Barney ready to rumble
Game of the night sees old rivals Raymond van Barneveld and Phil Taylor go head-to-head. This could be, quite possibly, the last time these two meet in competitive action, making for an emotional night. They are real pros however and will stick to the task, but we’ve rarely seen Barney in better shape and he’s picked at 15/8.
Hit the Jackpot
James Wade upset a few with his post-match comments about Phil Taylor last week and, as a sportsman, he is difficult to like. Lewis famously hit a nine-dart finish when these two met last year and he brushed past Dave Chisnall courtesy of a 7-2 score in Nottingham. 6/5 Jackpot will do us.
Mighty makes sense
In his current form we must stick with MVG. He is not much of a price in the match betting market, and Coral punters can take him in the handicap with confidence, but, for the purposes of this acca, he slides in at 1/7 and is trusted to do as expected.
Chizzy needs a win
Dave Chisnall needs a win to get him off the mark in the Premier League. He has been handed a tough opening couple of weeks, but if he’s kept his composure, he looks in line for a victory here against Huybrechts at even money. The price seems very generous indeed and, with little between the pair, I’d be happy with that offer.
