We experienced our best run in this year’s Premier League Darts campaign with a clean sweep on last week’s recommendations; a trend which we hope to continue on Thursday’s Judgement Night!

Wes Newton v Dave Chisnall (9-0-4)

Wes Newton had a double header last week, and came away with a loss and a draw. This week Wes faces off against Chizzy, where the winner will be safe, and all Chisnall requires is a draw to be safe.

The odds on the Newton 180’s are not worth a play, getting odds on more than two, and odds on also for less than four!

Chisnall lost a rare 180’s battle in the Premier League campaign last week and like Newton is odds on, but this time he must hit four and this pays just 1.67 with a few firms!

Chizzy is the same price to hit most 180’s against Newton, which in contrast to needing four in the match is better value. A reminder, Chisnall has hit 40 in the Premier League compared to Newton’s 25, so 4/6 could well be the bet of the night!

You could also argue that Chizzy -1 maximum at 5/4 with Skybet is strong!

Newton is TOO big at 2/1 to hit a higher match average than Chisnall, who can at the best of times be sloppy on the doubles! With a need to win Wes will have to perform, and the 2/1 on a campaign average (Newton 94.52 to Chisnall 96.59) may be the way to go.

Chisnall can often succumb to the pressure and I would not be betting on him at just 1/2 for the highest average under these circumstances.

Phil Taylor v Robert Thornton (15-0-5)

The interesting fact here is at this meeting exactly a year ago Thornton won the game 7-4 and is as big as 4/1 to switch off the Power, which is value to say the least.

The head to head has Taylor dominating as you would expect although in the last four meetings the pair have shared the spoils.

This match is hard to call on the basis that we do not know whether Thornton will have to win the match. Nevertheless the canny Scotsman will be wanting to take the points in a quest to make the top four, but it will not be made easy by either player!

The permutations are:

  • Newton beats Chisnall  – Newton is safe
  • Chisnall beats Newton – Newton is relegated
  • Chisnall/Newton – tie (Thornton must get a draw against Taylor or better)
  • Newton beats Chisnall 7-5 – Thornton must win at least two legs to survive
  • Newton beats Chisnall 7-4 – Thornton must win one leg
  • Chisnall and Thornton finish on same leg difference – Thornton is out!

I was listening to John Gwynne’s views on this weeks darts and he was under the impression that Newton and Chisnall could both escape leaving Thornton for the drop even though Thornton is 6/1 for the drop!
