If Vader was stupid enough to even consider killing Palpatine right in front of his men in that situation, then that proves that he would never expect the clones to turn on him. Beζides, even if he was so far above the caliber of other Jedi (no evidence to support such assumptions), I seriously doubt that it would be possible for him to deflect laser fire from eight clone troopers at once at point blank range, with each clone facing him from different angles.
