Premier League Darts Free Bets, Betting Offers and Latest Odds
We’re back on the oche, baby!
A Sue Gray-style delay meant that this year’s Premier League line-up was released at the last minute, rather than the traditional slot at the World Championships, but we now know the line-up for this 17-week-long event.
Oh, and there’s a switch-up in the format this year!
The Premier League will feature eight players and the 16 league nights – before a Grand Final evening – will be held as individual events comprising the quarter-finals, semi-finals and a final over the best of 11 legs. There will be a £10,000 bonus incentive for the winner of each evening.
World champion Peter Wright, world number one Gerwyn Price, three-time world champion “Mighty” Michael van Gerwen, two-time world champion Gary Anderson, Masters champion Joe Cullen, “The Machine” James Wade, “Bully Boy” Michael Smith and Jonny Clayton will contest this season’s Premier League, with names such as Rob Cross, Nathan Aspinall and Jose de Sousa missing out.
You won’t miss an arra’.
We’ll be here each week with free bets, tips and previews for the 2022 Premier League darts!

Premier League best: 5th (2019, 2020)
The Premier League crown is missing in the Welshman’s trophy cabinet after a couple of disappointing seasons.

World ranking: 3
Premier League best: Winner (2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)
MVG was trophy-less in 2021 and will be eyeing the Premier League as a perfect opportunity to reverse this fortune.
He owned this tournament for most of the 2010’s and is more than capable of a tilt at a 6th crown.
Odds: 9-2 with Paddy Power
World ranking: 2
Premier League best: Runner-up (2017)
“Snakebite” is the current world champion and near impossible to beat at his very best.

Odds: 5-1 with Paddy Power
World ranking: 8
Premier League best: Winner (2021)
“The Ferret” had an incredible 2021 winning multiple titles including the 2021 Premier League.

World ranking: 6
Premier League best: Winner (2011, 2015)
Anderson is a two-time winner of the Premier League but has fallen out of form over the last couple of seasons.
The “Flying Scotsman” arguably doesn’t dedicate enough time to the sport in comparison to his opposition.
Odds: 20-1 with Paddy Power
World ranking: 4
Premier League best: Winner (2009)
Perhaps a surprise inclusion into the Premier League, but James Wade is still number four in the world.
