Week 2 Darts Betting Tips (Liverpool)
Premier League Darts heads to Liverpool this Thursday (Feb 10) with eight stars back in action.
Peter Wright stole the show last week in Cardiff, as ‘Snakebite’ topped the table following his debut win of the new Premier League Darts format.
The Scot followed up this form at the weekend by grabbing the Players Championship Event 2 title and is the man to beat coming into Liverpool.
As is guaranteed with the Premier League, we’ve got four tasty quarter-finals to look forward to on Thursday night. Let’s take a look at the picks for week 2 …
Peter Wright v Michael van Gerwen
Peter Wright looks pretty unstoppable at the moment.
MVG is slowly returning to form, but is still well off the sublime pace he has set over a majority of his career in the PDC.
Wright’s record against the Dutchman is still a concern – winning just 18 of 82 meetings – but Thursday looks the perfect opportunity for the world champion to flex his muscles on the big stage.
Jonny Clayton v Michael Smith
No one is playing better darts in the world than Jonny Clayton – that’s a fact.
The ‘Ferret’ has chased his way to an incredible 100 average across his last 100 competitive legs, a standard that is going to prove hard to top.
Smith is growing and growing each time he visits the oche, but Clayton’s pace may punish ‘Bully Boy’ early.
Clayton to pinch this one after a quick start.
James Wade v Joe Cullen
Joe Cullen is still awaiting his first Premier League win and will be targeting Wade as one of the more beatable players in this electric field.
The ‘Machine’ averaged around 90 in week 1 and if Cullen gets his scoring boots on he should be able to push this one all the way.
An 11-leg thriller looks likely here as these two trade blows on the oche.
Gerwyn Price v Gary Anderson
Gerwyn Price and Gary Anderson are both showmen once they get going, and in a contest that could run deep into 10 or 11 legs, backing a 170 finish provides good value.
Price often leaves the T20, T20, Bull finish and is more than capable of reeling in the “Big Fish” against the Scot.
Anderson surprised many by his solid performance in week 1 and will push the Welshman into his best form.
