German Darts Championship 2012 Betting Preview

Phil Taylor returns to action in Berlin this weekend for the first time since his shock defeat in the UK Open final a fortnight ago - will there be another Power cut or will he surge to victory?

As expected Taylor heads the betting for the second European Tour event of the season; he will make his debut in this event along with fellow Stoke ace Adrian Lewis after the pair missed out on the first event in Austria.

The 15-time World Champion is on offer at 6/4 with Sportingbet to claim victory in the German capital and will no doubt use his UK Open hurt as motivation to return to the glory trail.

Potential barriers to Taylor prior to the Quarter-Finals include former World Champion Richie Burnett, rival Paul Nicholson and multiple major winner Colin Lloyd.

Reigning World Champion Adrian Lewis follows as 10/1 second favourite and would be on course for a meeting with his former protégé in the final.

Jackpot has had mixed fortunes since lifting his second world title in January; failure to progress to the Premier League Play-offs was followed by a disappointing UK Open campaign, but the quick-fire youngster hit back in Birmingham at the weekend with a run to a ProTour final suggesting a return to form.

James Wade has also blown hot and cold this season and will need to up his game and determination if he is to justify his 12/1 outright price. 

Many will feel value lies in Gary Anderson at 18/1; the Flying Scotsman may be in the midst of a title drought, but demonstrated he is back on track after a sensational nine darter at the recent UK Open and a new-found confidence with his new setup may warrant an each-way bet.

The ever-dependable tour players Simon and Dave Chisnall are priced at 14/1, while Justin Pipe, winner of the inaugural European Tour event in April is a 25/1 chance to build on his sensational floor form.

In terms of outside value look no further than Fleetwood hotshot Wes Newton at 25/1. The Warrior continues to go from strength to strength and now occupies the world number five spot.

He is regarded as one of the most dangerous floor players on the circuit but has since transferred that form onto the big stage and is reaping the rewards. He would avoid the likes of Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis until the latter stages and could do damage this weekend.

Michael van Gerwen was in scintillating form on Sunday, winning a Players Championship event and averaging 109 during one of many superb showings.

His long 80/1 price reflects his tricky opener against Justin Pipe, but the young Dutchman will be full of confidence having dispatched The Force last weekend and could do the double to kick-start a strong run should he finally find the consistency he has lacked since joining the PDC.

The straight knockout event runs from Friday June 22 to Sunday June 24 at the Temprodrom in Berlin. All matches will be played over the best of 11 legs, with the non-televised event open to the public.
