The Unibet Premier League is soon to restart and the event sponsors are offering a wide selection of odds both for the opening night in Aberdeen and for the event overall.
Our contributor JR Lott has a good record of spotting value in these events, so we asked him what looked a decent shout?
JR: The Premier League is a strange betting event, effectively you are betting on two or three separate things at any one time. First of all your player overall picks must survive to judgement night so its like an each way bet. Then they need to be able to actually carry off one of the biggest prizes against very in form competition. Lastly, you may also have been betting on individual games or combinations. Single games are different and have factors such as head to head records or local crowds etc.
DW: So what stands out for you JR?
JR: There is rarely superb value in darts, But these odds from Unibet have one or two stand-outs. Hendo at home at 2.5-1 looks a decent value hit for night one and overall I like the look of 8-1 on Gary Anderson. Gary will get time to play himself fit here and is already showing signs of a return to his best.
Lastly, as an outsider, I would be tempted by an each way bet on Glen Durrant. 28-1 for a three time world champion who has already shown what he can do on the biggest stages?
