Premier League Darts Betting Tips: Michael van Gerwen to make amends against Gerwyn Price?
Odds and preview ahead of the week six action
After a fifth week full of upsets on the Premier League Darts schedule in Exeter, we move on to week six in Liverpool where we’ve got plenty of great matchups.
Peter Wright was on top form last week, averaging 110 in his 7-3 win over Nathan Aspinall. He’s up against Michael Smith, who comes in off the back of an impressive victory over world number one Michael van Gerwen.
Elsewhere, both Van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price will want to pick up wins after losing in Exeter, plus it’s top vs bottom as Glen Durrant takes on Daryl Gurney.
The schedule also includes Gary Anderson taking on Nathan Aspinall, with Rob Cross up against Stephen Bunting. And before the first arrow is thrown, we’ve got all the key odds right here…
Smith impressed against Van Gerwen last week, storming out to a 6-1 lead before a few nervy legs gave the world number one hope. Wright put in the complete performance in his 7-3 win over Aspinall last week, with a 110 average and four 180s.
Snakebite is slight favourite at 11/10 to win this match-up, but with Smith joint-top with Durrant heading into week six, he could continue his fine form. He’s 9/5 to win.
Last week’s performance from Wright could have turned heads, with the Scot looking like he was back to his best. We’ve got him down at 4/1 to be King of the Oche with the win, most 180s and highest checkout.
Both Price and Van Gerwen looked a shadow of their usual high standards last week, but neither will want to dwell on the past and will hope to get back to winning ways.
It’s MvG who’s odds-on favourite to bag a fourth win in his Premier League campaign at 5/6, but Price could overtake in the league table with a win. The Iceman is the 9/4 underdog.
The pair played out a thrilling draw in their last Premier League meeting in April last year. If you can’t split the two this time, that’s available at 10/3.
In the evening’s curtain call, It’s Anderson v Aspinall, another match where both throwers will be looking to get back on winning terms.
The Asp has been performing well in the league, starting the night fourth level with MvG. We make him the narrow favourite at 13/10, but The Flying Scotsman is still available at 6/4.
Anderson has the lowest checkout percentage in this season’s Premier League campaign, but in contrast, Aspinall landed a 170 finish on week one. Fancy the Asp to get another? You can find 14/1 on that.
