After the January break and last weekend's Masters, the PDC darts season is about to go into overdrive with the start of the 2019 Unibet Premier League as nine of the world's best players - plus Gary Anderson's nine replacements (!) - prepare to battle it out every Thursday night until May 23.

Our Chris Hammer (@ChrisHammer180) is joined by journalist and commentator Tom Beresford (@TomSportJourno) to preview the tournament and pick out their best bets for the opening round of games.
