Roy The Boy previews the Premier League Darts and he likes Raymond Van Barneveld to get more 180s than Michael Van Gerwen.
Maximum Faith in 180’s Stats
Darts may not be to everyone’s liking but when a clear-cut betting opportunity arises, why not embrace it? That’s the case on Thursday night when Raymond van Barneveld has to be backed to post more 180’s than his opponent, Michael van Gerwen.
The mighty Michael van Gerwen is a deserved clear-cut favourite for the game but he has repeatedly shown a liking for treble 19’s and treble 18’s despite opening with a treble 20 this current Premier League season and that is reflected in his stats.
MVG has posted just 21 180’s in his six games to date and, while Raymond van Barneveld has played seven games, his 29 ‘maximums’ is still vastly superior. In fact the veteran has laid claim to the ‘most 180’s on the night’ accolade for the past two weeks.
He may be no good thing to win the 180’s battle, especially with the very real possibility of honours being even (the draw scenario is 5/1 with Boylesports) but Raymond van Barneveld is definitely no 2/1 shot in this market and has to be backed accordingly.
