Today's Main Darts Betting News:
Only a couple of months after Phil Taylor was crowned world champion for an unprecedented sixteenth time, the Premier League is back underway. Quite literally, bigger than ever before. The world’s top ten players now congregate on a weekly basis at the biggest indoor venues around the UK to battle it out for Premier League points in front of up to 10,000 darts fans.
The format has changed slightly in that the players now play over a best-of-12-legs format, rather than previously when 14 legs had been played. But perhaps even more importantly, there are now no breaks in the middle of matches. There’s also a relegation cut-off point midway through the league, with the bottom two players relegated after the first nine rounds.
While most darts players are enjoying some relative downtime from competitive action, the game’s elite are traversing the British Isles, playing in front of crowds of around 5,000 in arenas from Aberdeen to Exeter to Dublin to Cardiff for the Premier League of darts.
Phil Taylor is once again proving his excellence by sweeping aside all those that come before him in the competition. His tournament average is hovering around the 110 mark and he is now firmly established as the darts betting favourite to regain the Premier League crown that he has won five times previously.
Adrian Lewis has endured a disappointing start to the season, going through the first six weeks of the competition without picking up a single win. James Wade, on the other hand, turned his season around from losing his first three matches to win the next three and put himself firmly in the hunt for a top-four finish.

Although the darts circuit has been relatively quiet away from the Premier League, there have been a few floor tournaments, including a couple of UK Open qualifiers. Wes Newton and Michael van Gerwen won the first two UK Open qualifiers of the season with the Dutchman taking all the darts betting news headlines thanks to his nine-dart finish in the final.
Phil Taylor has also produced a couple of nine-darters in floor tournaments this season. He threw perfect legs on each day of the Players Tour Championship events in Reading, following up from his perfect leg against Kevin Painter in Aberdeen in the Premier League.

There are nine-darters, and there are World Championship Nine-Darters. Dean Winstanley threw one of the latter.
