Van Gerwen To Be Too Good For Taylor In The Premier League Darts

There are only two weeks to go until the Premier League Darts play-off night at the O2 Arena in London on 18th May and the battle for a top-four finish intensifies in Sheffield this Thursday. Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright have already confirmed their qualification, with the rest battling it out for two of the remaining top-four positions...

Thursday 4th May, 7.15pm - Peter Wright v Adrian Lewis

Peter Wright has qualified for the play-offs for the first time in his career and the in-form Scot will now be gunning for top spot in the table. 'Snakebite' meets an out-of-sorts Adrian Lewis, who had a night to forget last week as he was well beaten by both James Wade and Michael van Gerwen.

Lewis has a mountain to climb from here as far as the play-offs are concerned and it doesn't augur well that he has lost his past four head-to-head meetings with Wright, including a 7-2 Premier League defeat in March.

Thursday 4th May, 8.00pm - Raymond van Barneveld v Dave Chisnall

Dave Chisnall has hit form to mount an unlikely charge for a top-four finish and he is now just two points outside of the play-off places ahead of what is a 'must-win' match against Raymond van Barneveld.

Prior to this week, 'Chizzy' has been able to play without pressure as so little was expected of him but that changes in Sheffield and Van Barneveld's greater big match experience, allied with the fact he has won five of their past seven meetings, ensures he is the value for victory here (13/10 with Betfair).

Thursday 4th May, 8.45pm - James Wade v Gary Anderson

James Wade kept his slim chances of a play-off place alive with a 7-4 win over Adrian Lewis last week and he next faces a player he tends to enjoy competing against, Gary Anderson.

Wade has only lost one of his past seven meetings with Anderson in all formats (won five, drawn one) and it is well worth noting that their past four Premier League clashes have all ended in 6-6 draws. With that in mind, Wade is 4/5 to cover +2.5 legs in the handicap market (Betfred).

Thursday 4th May, 9.30pm - Michael van Gerwen v Phil Taylor

Phil Taylor is clinging on to fourth place despite a disappointing 7-3 loss to Peter Wright last time out and we fancy he will come up well short against Michael van Gerwen, who is unbeaten in six Premier League meetings with 'The Power' (won five, drawn one).

'Mighty Mike' is 13/8 to win, throw most 180s and land the highest checkout (Ladbrokes) and he should prove to be too good for Taylor.
