Phil Taylor In Premier League Darts

by Renee Israel

Phil Taylor Is Nicknamed The Power

Despite drawing his Night Four match in the 2013 Premier League Darts, Phil "The Power" Taylor, the 7/4 favourite to win the prestigious UK darts tournament, is unsurprisingly already leading the way.

Taylor had a comfortable 6-4 lead against James Wade, when the left hander won the last two rounds to level the score. After the match Taylor said that he was playing with a new set of darts that he had just received the previous day.

"I like the darts, they feel good and they're nice, so with a bit of match practice in the next couple of weeks I'll improve, but I'm pleased with a draw tonight," revealed Taylor.

2013 Premier League Darts Night 5

This week the 2013 Premier League Darts moves to the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham. The fixtures on Thursday March 7 are as follows.

James Wade vs. Robert Thornton
Raymond van Barneveld vs. Andy Hamilton
Adrian Lewis vs. Michael van Gerwen
Phil Taylor vs. Gary Anderson
Wes Newton vs. Simon Whitlock

Ladbrokes is an online betting site that darts punters often use to place wagers. It has posted odds for the Night Five fixtures in the Premier League Darts competition. These are as follows.

James Wade 6/5, Robert Thornton 11/8, Draw 7/2
Raymond van Barneveld 8/13, Andy Hamilton 11/4, Draw 4/1
Adrian Lewis 4/1, Michael van Gerwen 2/5, Draw 9/2
Phil Taylor 3/10, Gary Anderson 11/2, Draw 5/1
Wes Newton 2/1, Simon Whitlock 5/6, Draw 7/2

If results go according to form then van Barneveld, van Gerwen and Taylor should maintain their positions in the top four. Wade is expected to displace Thornton and consolidate his claim for a place in the playoffs.

Phil "The Power" Taylor's Secret to Success

Though it may not appear so, fitness is as much a necessity for a darts player as it is for any other sports person. A disciplined fitness regime has enabled Phil Taylor to continue dominating the professional darts scene. At the beginning of the 2013 season Taylor said, "I didn't want to hit 55 and have a heart attack."

He follows a healthy living plan devised by nutritionist and fitness expert Laura Church which ended his life of endless fry-ups and added exercise. Phil said in an interview that he is a lot fitter and sharper and that his concentration levels are up and his alertness has increased.
