Premier League Darts Preview And Betting Tips – Week Three

Another dominant performance from Michael van Gerwen in week two of the Premier League Darts sees the defending champion in familiar territory at the top of the standings coming into week three from the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. Tipsters Form Labs cast their eye over Thursday nights match-up's with their betting preview and tips, and don't forget to check out all the odds for a packed midweek schedule of European football!







Peter Wright v Rob Cross

Despite their respective form, it’s Rob Cross who remains unbeaten from his two Premier League matches so far, while Peter Wright awaits his first victory, though we wouldn’t read too much into those two matches.

There was a huge contrast to the performances of these two over the weekend, with Voltage losing twice in three matches in Wigan as he failed to pass the last 64 stage in either of the Players Championships, while Wright reached the semis in both. The averages have recently been hugely in the Scotsman’s favour, too, with Snake Bite tonning up in seven of his most recent nine matches over the weekend, and each of his last four including a whopping 112.85 against Maik Kuivenhoven in the quarter-finals.

The Englishman, however, has only thrown 100+ in three of his last 30 matches, throwing 91.85 and 92.04 in his last two, so Wright looks a good price to make it three wins in a row against Cross for the first time in his career.

Jonny Clayton v Michael Smith

Michael Smith will be disappointed with his substantial 7-3 defeat in the opening round to Glen Durrant, though a draw against Gerwyn Price in his follow up is no mean feat and he’ll have a chance to pick up his first win when taking on Challenger Jonny Clayton on Thursday.

There’s very little to separate these two with regard to form, with both going W3-L2 in Wigan over the weekend. Bully Boy seems the more consistent performer however, with his last 12 matches seeing a spread of just 12.05 in his averages, hitting 100+ five times in that time as his opponent has seen a 19.61 spread, though it’s the nerve on the checkout that swings this in the Welshman’s favour for us.

Smith has been notoriously poor on the doubles of late in televised events, hitting just 99 checkouts from a possible 259 since the start of the European Championship (excluding Grand Prix) at just a 38.22% success rate. Clayton, meanwhile, has been far more prolific on his doubles, throwing at a 52.63% rate in the same time period. We can see him ousting the Englishman at the end of the legs and we’ll go against the grain here at a decent price.

Michael van Gerwen v Nathan Aspinall

Magic Mike is the only player still with a 100% record after two matches this year, having overcome Peter Wright and Daryl Gurney is his opening contests, though Nathan Aspinall won’t prove an easy customer.

The Asp has already won his first title of the year last weekend in Barnsley, though he followed that up with a 7-5 defeat to Rob Cross and his two Last 32 appearances at the weekend aren’t exactly the runs that he would’ve been hoping for in preparation for this clash. That’s especially seeing as his averages took a turn for the worse in Wigan, throwing under 96 in all but one of his five matches, and a similar posting won’t be enough to topple the world number one.

The Dutchman managed a final and quarter-final appearance in Wigan, throwing a 107.39 and a 110.92 on Sunday against Gary Anderson and Ryan Murray respectively. However, he’s not quite hitting the dazzling heights at the moment that we’ve become accustomed to, and although we feel like he’ll take the victory here, it should be close one and the handicap appeals for the Brit.

Nathan Aspinall +2.5 At 5/4


Daryl Gurney v Gerwyn Price

Daryl Gurney is in all sorts of trouble at the moment. He remains in 7th in the Order of Merit, though the Asp is hot on his tail as the Northern Irishman has lost eight of his last 10 matches since being dumped out of the World championships by Glen Durrant, falling short in the first round twice at the weekend.

The Iceman has drawn both his contests in the Premier League so far to Rob Cross and Michael Smith as he just can’t quite get over the line. A run to the final last weekend in Barnsley was his most notable tournament of the year so far, though against an out-of-form Gurney, this really is an opportunity for him to get back to winning ways having not done so for three matches. He’s also drawn eight times in the Premier League over this year and last, which is more than any other player in that period, a record he’ll be desperate to change and so he’ll be determined to not take this lightly.

Gerwyn Price To Win At 3/4


Gary Anderson v Glen Durrant

The Flying Scotsman remains one of the most dangerous players on the circuit, and has already claimed a Players Championship in Barnsley this month. He didn’t quite live up to the billing in Wigan at the weekend, though a last 16 run finishing at the hands of van Gerwen isn’t exactly anything to be ashamed of and he’ll still have the upper hand coming into this.

Duzza played out a draw against Fallon Sherrock in a topsy-turvy thriller last weekend, and while he would have been disappointed not to come away with the win as a strong odds-on favourite, a quarter-final and Last 16 run at the weekend will give him confidence. However, Anderson looks to be too strong at the moment and on the rare occasion he has fallen to defeat recently, they  tend to be extremely close (two of his last three have ended 6-5), while Durrant can be susceptible to some heavier losses, with two of his last three defeats coming by heavy 6-1 and 6-2 margins.

Anderson’s ability to fight to the end and his experience here should see him through this contest and we’ll get behind him at evens.
