Fixtures and Best Prices
Week 4 of the Whyte and Mackay Premier League Darts comes to you from Odyssey Arena in Belfast. The league table is starting to take shape now and it’s showing that John Part and Wayne Mardle could be doing better, Part took an 8-2 thrashing from Mervyn King last week but before that looked quite impressive holding both Barney and Wade to draws. Mardle though will probally be happy with his position after last seasons start and losing this years opener 8-1 also to King. Expect it to be a tight game with Part possibly edging it 8-6.
Mervyn King is in the best form of his career at the moment, the switch to the PDC seems to have worked forcing him to up his game. Tonight he comes up against Jelle Klaasen who is bottom of the table and struggling at the moment, probally still finding his feet. There is a performance in there waiting to happen from Klaasen and one week he will come to the party and hammer someone, can’t see it happening tonight though as King is just playing to well at the moment and i would expect him to win this quite comfortably.
Taylor has been churning out results – only drawing last week though – without really hitting top gear yet, depending on which Wade turns up tonight that could change if he needs it to, if the Wade that won seven legs in a row at an average of 120 in Coventry last week turns up we could be in for a special match, if the Wade that lost 8-1 the week before turns up it could be another embarrassment for him.
Barney could do with getting his league campaign off to a start tonight, joint bottom with only one point is not a position we’re used to seeing him in, he must of thought he was well on course to register his first win last week until that Wade blitz, surely he’s experienced enough though to just brush that off and put it down to one of those things out of his control. Terry Jenkins showed signs of a return to top form last week with a typical battling draw with Phil Taylor, although if you want to be ultra critical you could say he should have won from a position of 6-4 up. Not sure what to expect from Barney as he could turn up hit form and thrash Jenkins, but if recent form is anything to go on Jenkins looks good value at 5/2 with Blue Square.
