This is it: it’s sink or swim for Jonny Clayton and Nathan Aspinall in this season’s Premier League Darts.
The “Ferret” and “Asp” are the only two players with their playoff futures unknown, and they square off in the quarter-finals in Aberdeen in what is close to a winner-takes-all tie.
Elsewhere, top spot is still up for grabs between Price, Smith and MVG, whilst Wright, Van den Bergh and Dobey are scrapping to avoid the wooden spoon.
Let’s take a look at this week’s 5/1 weekly Acca:
Gerwyn Price to beat Peter Wright (7.10pm)
Despite Peter Wright’s win at the weekend’s Czech Open, we’re not sure this form will translate onto the Premier League oche.
The Scot has no doubt improved in the second half of the season, but still only has one final appearance to his name in week 10.
Price sits top of the league and a win against Wright could well confirm his #1 spot in the regular season.
Michael Smith to beat Dimitri van den Bergh (8.10pm)
Smith is purring at the oche, snagging the last three night wins in Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds.
Van den Bergh has won just one of his last eight quarter-final matches in the Premier League and we can’t see anything but a Smith victory as the “Bully Boy” targets top spot.
A two or three leg cushion should be ok as Smith wins at a canter.
Jonny Clayton vs Nathan Aspinall – Over 9.5 legs (7.40pm)
In their five meetings, Clayton and Aspinall have only been separated by more than two legs once.
That was a 6-3 win for Aspinall back in 2019 and it’s no surprise that these two are as close as they are in the league.
Clayton holds the cards by winning the last three plus enjoying a two point lead over Aspinall in the standings, but this tie surely has legs in it.
A 6-4 or 6-5 either way is where the value lies.
Michael van Gerwen -1.5 handicap vs Chris Dobey (8.40pm)
Six of the last 10 Premier League seasons have finished with a Michael van Gerwen victory, underlining how much the “Green Machine” loves this format.
Mathematically, van Gerwen can still win the regular season phase – adding to his previous eight – and he won’t be willing to throw the towel in against Dobey.
Dobey has fallen off a cliff in the second half of the league and MVG will be there to capitalise on any openings.
