Premier League Darts 2023
Week 12 Preview by Shane McArdle
The Premier League continues this week Thursday (April 20th), with the action coming from Rotterdam.
There are now just two points separating Michael van Gerwen (top, 29 points) and Gerwyn Price (2nd, 27 points) at the summit of the league table, with a massive nine-point gap back to the rest of the field, headed by World No.1 Michael Smith.
The action from the fantastic Rotterdam Ahoy Arena begins with four eagerly awaited quarter-final matches, followed by two semi-finals and then the week 12 final.
The action will be broadcast live on Sky Sports from 7pm on Thursday evening.
Quarter-Final Match Betting and Predictions:
Thursday April 20th
(Prices correct as of 3pm on April 18th)
(7:15pm) 23/20 Chris Dobey v Jonny Clayton 13/20 (Prediction – Jonny Clayton, The Ferret has been in better form than his opponent in recent weeks, including an overall night win back in week 10, where he beat Peter wright 6-5. His 100+ checkout record lately should be the difference in this match.) Correct Score Prediction – 3-6
(8pm) 7/5 Michael Smith v Gerwyn Price 1/2 (Prediction – Gerwyn Price, without question, The Iceman, Gerwyn Price is the best player in the world right now and, in a repeat of last week’s final (where he was a 6-3 winner) he is confidently expected to gain another win over tonight’s opponent Bully Boy Michael Smith.) Correct Score Prediction – 4-6
(8:45pm) 6/5 Dimitri Van den Bergh v Peter Wright 13/20 (Prediction – Peter Wright, despite a loss of his usual top-class form in recent times, Snakebite has been showing signs of a return to somewhat near his usual high standard and although Dimitri will be many people’s choice to win this contest, it’s a win for Peter for me in this interesting match-up.) Correct Score Prediction – 4-6
(9:30pm) 3/10 Michael van Gerwen v Nathan Aspinall 23/10 (Prediction – Michael van Gerwen, A tough game for both players, this will be a close game and although both players come into this in very good form, I just expect MVG to prove a little too good on this occasion and get the win) Correct Score Prediction – 6-5
