2020 Darts Premier League Play-Offs Betting Tips

2020 Darts Premier League

OK, so it’s not May, we’re not looking forward to the summer and it’s not taking place in London’s O2 Arena, but at long, long last the Darts Premier League has reached the playoff stage. 

For London’s docklands, read Coventry’s Ricoh Arena and for live and noisy crowd– read: fake piped in atmospheric cheers — but hey after this most horrible of years, let’s be thankful for some top-level PDC darts at its finest.

A look at the final matches

Fresh off the back of the World Grand Prix, which only finished on Monday, bringing yet another PDC major for the new world number two Gerwyn Price. We have another top PDC award up for grabs as Thursday sees the complete final night of Premier League Darts 2020.

Price will not be there sadly, his league form poor enough to only render a fifth-place finish, one ahead of Michael van Gerwen who also misses out. The absence of the world’s top two should offer hope for the remaining four, which includes World Champion Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright

As well as Peter Wright, the remaining four include table topper Glen Durrant, Gary Anderson and Nathan Aspinall. The two semi-finals will be played over the best of 19 legs each.

The first semi-final is between Glen Durrant and Gary Anderson, leaving Peter Wright to face Nathan Aspinall in number two. 

As noted, Durrant ended the group stage on the top of the table making him only the third darter to do so in the tournament’s 15-year history, while Anderson is the only former Premier League champion left in the competition.

Before we look at the semis in greater detail, the outright prices from bet365 for the 2020 Darts Premier League are as follows.

As the highest-ranked player in the tourney, world number three Peter Wright is worth 13/8, ahead of Gary Anderson at 11/4. Glen Durrant is a sizeable 7/2 given his dominance thus far and Nathan Aspinall at 10/3 is also very generous. Given that it really isn’t very hard to imagine a Durrant/Aspinall final, those prices are indeed tempting.

Glen Durrant V Gary Anderson

Earlier in the competition, Durrant beat Anderson 7-4 in week three while the pair drew the rematch 7-7 in Week 11.

Could this be the night where Anderson is victorious? Possibly. I mean the guy is a two-times world champion and is capable of showing glimpses of his previous levels even if the Scottish veteran’s game is generally slowing down these days.

He remains one of the finest darters of all time and last week made it to the last eight of the World Grand Prix, averaging 90 along the way.

In contrast, Durrant had an atrocious Grand Prix, dropping out in round one at the hands of Dave Chisnall, citing technical issues whatever that means. Duzza has been messing around with his flights and will hopefully have settled on a set come Thursday if he is get the reward his Premier League form deserves.

Duzza has been the Premier League’s best player so far this season, but Gary has the titles, PDC at least, so it is a tough one to call. I’m backing Durrant in this one, however, providing he makes his mind up about those darts on time.

Peter Wright v Nathan Aspinall

On the two occasions these two met in the earlier rounds, Snakebite won both and with more than a little bit of breathing room too, averaging 106. Given this, he should be happy with the draw. The Asp was going great guns prior to the shutdown but hasn’t been in the best form since the live restart.

Like Durrant, both Wright and Aspinall exited the World Grand Prix in the first round. Aspinall busted out in round one of the Matchplay too, albeit to eventual winner Dimitri van den Bergh

On form, Wright should take this despite a disappointing World Grand Prix, but the Asp can be very dangerous and might have the bigger of two snake bites here.

World Grand Prix Darts Betting Tips 2020

World Grand Prix Darts Betting Tips 2020

The first televised PDC major since the World Series Tour Finals gets underway this week as the World Grand Prix gets underway at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Tuesday.

Whether it’s the year we have had or not, but darts feels more open now than at any point in the past few seasons when it felt that Michael van Gerwen was near imperial. This year, MVG has but one televised title, same as Gerwyn Price and Dimitri van den Bergh and one less than Peter Wright.

Price in particular has been in good form of late following up his win in Austria with a near miss in at German Masters where Devon Peterson took the crown.

The Iceman, along with world champion Peter Wright are both 5/1 with bet365 to take the Grand Prix title with the Welshman particularly tempting right now, particularly with no crowds allowed in to boo him. Price begins his campaign on Wednesday when he faces Jermaine Wattimena in a tough opener.

Snakebite also needs to wait until Wednesday when he faces Ryan Joyce in what should be a far more simple match. Or at least as simple as Snakey is willing to make it on himself. 

As for defending champion and five-time winner MVG, he is the favourite at 10/3, which is as long a price he has been pre-tourney for some time. Mighty Mike’s campaign begins against the Polish Eagle Krzysztof Ratajski on Tuesday night.

This famously is the double start tournament, meaning that games must start as well as end on a double throw which has in the past proved to be a decent leveler. That, and no fans as well as a change of venue – this normally goes off at the CityWest in Dublin — might mean we are in for some shocks this week. We certainly hope so.

As for movers outside the big three, Nathan Aspinall, who has now cemented himself in the PDC top eight, is a 10/1 shot, four points in from Gary ‘The Flying Scotsman’ Anderson at 14/1. Glen Durrant is a teasing 16/1 which shouldn’t be carelessly dismissed while Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith is available at 16’s to finally break his major duck. 

South Africa’s Devon Peterson, winner in Germany recently, is 22/1, while Rob Cross is 28/1 and Daryl Gurney 35/1, all with bet365.
