The 2016 Darts Premier League kicks off in Leeds on Thursday and it’s surely the tournament’s strongest line up yet. When the rag is current World Grand Prix Champion Robert Thornton then you know it’s a quality field.
The opening night has some belting fixtures with Raymond Van Barneveld a must back at a huge 13/5 with Bet365 to beat Phil Taylor. Elsewhere Bully Boy Michael Smith is overpriced at 2/1 with Bet365 to get the better of Peter Wright.
The pick of the ante-post markets is found at BetVictor where they are paying 9/4 on Michael Van Gerwen to top the league & to win the tournament. The World Number 1 has topped the league in all 3 of his appearances in the event and his unbelievable consistency makes that 9/4 pretty much an inflated tournament winner price. Make sure you get on.
- Barney to beat Taylor @ 13/5 (Bet365)
- Smith to beat Wright @ 2/1 (Bet365)
