Darts! Now that I’ve got your attention, Premier League Darts heads back to Scotland for week nine in Aberdeen. Hopefully the shocking scenes that greeted the Premier League the last time they ventured to Scotland won’t appear again.
We went a magnificent 3-0 last week, taking us to 11-15 and a loss of -11.75 units.

So, with fingers crossed we don’t get the same scenes as last week, let’s get onto the Premier League darts tips for the Aberdeen leg.
Gary Anderson versus Terry Jenkins.
Gary Anderson scraped past James Wade last week. However, Anderson averaged 101.54 with a checkout average of 44%. Jenkins slumped to another defeat last week, losing 8-3 to Simon Whitlock. Jenkins averaged 95.08 in defeat and he’ll need to step it up a bit to get past Anderson.
Anderson will be looking to get his first win in his home country and facing Terry Jenkins might be the ideal time. However, the 8/15 is prohibitive and we’ll look at another market for our bet.
Both men hit the maximums for fun and the line of 6.5 is looking good.

Adrian Lewis versus James Wade.
World Champion Adrian Lewis bounced back to great form, beating Mark Webster 801 in Cardiff, averaging 101.30 on his way. James Wade, on the other hand, lost 806 to Gary Anderson and averaegd 92.09. A 9 point different is a lot to make up and the fact Lewis has been averaging around the high 90s, 10ss all tournament, it means Wade could struggle, yet again.
Wade looks a shade of his former self, so Lewis is definitely the play here.

Phil Taylor versus Mark Webster.
You know, I’d normally give you a write up here, but Mark Webster has been terrible, while Taylor has been awesome. Taylor averaged 17 points more than Webster last week and there is no value in any of the markets for the match.
Recommend: No bet.
Raymond van Barneveld versus Simon Whitlock.
Last week, the Raymond van Barneveld Express was derailed by Phil Taylor. His great fightback in the league was halted, although he averaged 96.20. His doubling let him down at times and that was that in terms of the match.
Whitlock’s comeback is also quite impressive and his 8-3 win over Terry Jenkins and a 97.19 average are testament to this.
Looking at the stats, this will be close and I think we should err on the side of caution. The draw looks the solid option here.
