Taylor is bidding to claim a sixth Premier League crown at The O2 in London on Thursday May 17, when he will take on James Wade in the semi-finals, with Simon Whitlock and Andy Hamilton clashing in the other last four contest.
William Hill, the official betting partner of the McCoy’s Premier League Darts, make Taylor – who finished top of the league table following the 14 weekly rounds – as their odds-on 2/5 favourite. Whitlock is the 9/2 second favourite, with Wade priced at 7/1 to claim his second Premier League Darts title and newcomer Andy Hamilton the 10/1 outsider after qualifying for the Play-Offs in his debut season.
Taylor is 1/5 to win his semi-final against Wade, who is rated as 7/2 to win through to the decider. Whitlock is the 4/9 favourite to win the other semi-final against Hamilton, who is rated as 7/4 despite the Stoke ace taking a win and a draw from the pair’s two league contests this season.

For all games, the order of throw will be decided by a bull-off pre-match in the practice room. Should a game go to a deciding leg, there would not be any further bull-off, meaning that the player who throws first in the opening leg of the game throws first in the deciding leg.
