Huybrechts Can Upset The Premier League Odds Against Van Barneveld

We landed a nice 5/2 double during the opening night of the Premier League Darts in Newcastle last week and we're looking to follow up with three tempting bets for Thursday evening's action at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham...

Thursday 9th February, 7.15pm - Adrian Lewis v Dave Chisnall

Dave Chisnall boasts a decent head-to-head record against Adrian Lewis as he is currently 14-1-10 in all competitions and he has won the past four in a row. However, as we saw last week, 'Chizzy' struggles to put legs away because of his propensity for missing doubles and he duly lost 7-3 to an admittedly excellent Phil Taylor in the North East.

Chisnall still managed to throw the most 180s (five), as well as the highest checkout (160), of any player last Thursday though and he looks a banker to throw most 180s in his match against Lewis (8/11 with Paddy Power).

Last year, despite being relegated, Chisnall threw 37 180s in his nine matches (average of 4.1 per match). Compare that to Lewis, who, despite making the last-four of the tournament, only threw 38 maximums in sixteen matches (average of 2.3 per match).

Thursday 9th February, 8.00pm - Phil Taylor v James Wade

For us, Phil Taylor has been massively over-priced at the start of this Premier League campaign and he is again only a marginal favourite (4/5 with Betfred) for his clash with James Wade.

Taylor was superb in beating Chisnall 7-3 last week and he will be relishing another meeting with Wade, who was fortunate to edge past Kim Huybrechts 7-5 last week. Wade hasn't beaten Taylor in the Premier League since 2009 - a run of fifteen matches (drawn four, lost eleven) - and it is difficult to see him enhancing a head-to-head record against Taylor that has seen him lose 50 of 62 meetings.

Thursday 9th February, 10.15pm - Kim Huybrechts v Raymond van Barneveld

Finally, Raymond van Barneveld had to dig into his reserves of experience to come from behind and beat Lewis 7-5 in Newcastle but we don't fancy he can make such a slow start against Kim Huybrechts, who was desperately unlucky to lose to Wade last week.

Huybrechts averaged 100.62 in defeat as 'The Hurricane' again failed to finish off one of the top players but he will fancy his chances against Van Barneveld.

Huybrechts actually leads their head-to-head meetings 9-2 and he can take confidence from the fact that his sole win from his debut appearance in the 2015 Premier League came against the erratic Dutchman.

At the prices, Huybrechts is well worth a cheeky punt (3/1 with Betfair).
