Taylor fav for O2 win but can The Wizard magic an upset?
The semi finals of the Darts Premier take place in London next week and Simon Whitlock is the 2/5 favourite to win the first match at the O2 with Andy Hamilton 7/4. Phil Taylor takes on James Wade in the second and the tournament favourite is 1/5 to defeat The Machine with Wade 10/3.
Despite not taking maximum points against Gary Anderson, Phil Taylor is the favourite to win the Premier League outright having missed out last year and tournament betting partners, William Hill, make him 2/5 to do so. Simon Whitlock is the 9/2 second favourite with James Wade 7/1 and Andy Hamilton 10/1.
"It is no coincidence that Phil led the league from day one and even less of a coincidence that he is odds on to reclaim the title from Gary Anderson," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Outright: 2/5 Taylor; 9/2 Whitlock; 7/1 Wade; 10/1 Andy Hamilton
1/5 Taylor; 10/3 Wade
2/5 Whitlock; 7/4 Hamilton
