After a week-long break, we’re back at the oche for the next set of darts Premier League fixtures!
The league is trying to take shape, bless it, but with a majority of the players sharing wins — apart from reigning champion Glen Durrant — there is plenty of congestion in the upper echelons.
The countdown is now on to Thursday’s Judgement Night where the bottom two will be axed from the league, and it’s looking like a case of Glen Durrant +1 as it stands.
We’re here this week to guide you through the best darts betting, odds and picks, and we are kicking off the week with an 11/1 acca.
Jose De Sousa v James Wade – Over 6.5 180s
De Sousa has done a lot right so far in his debut Premier League season, but if the Portuguese can tighten up his counting and finishing he’ll become a real threat.
But you can’t question his scoring.
De Sousa has rattled home a league-high 26 180s so far and we expect this scoring to continue on Monday.
Wade isn’t known for his maximum hitting, but if the ‘Machine’ can chip in with one or two then De Sousa can get this leg of the acca over the line.
Jonny Clayton to beat Dimitri van den Bergh
Both debutants will fancy crashing the party in this season’s Premier League.
They sit one and two in the table with genuine title ambitions.
Clayton is power-scoring slightly better than Dimitri so far and is good value to pinch this one over the distance.
This match will probably go back and forwards, but there is enough value to chuck a Clayton win into the mix.
Michael van Gerwen -4.5 handicap v Glen Durrant
Glen Durrant will just want this week over and done with.
The reigning Premier League champion is really out of touch on the oche and faces the relentless ‘Green Machine’ on Monday as he tries to salvage a point or two from his defence.
Van Gerwen is warming up after a fairly stagnant 2020 and should sweep aside ‘Duzza’ in style.
Anything better than a 7-3 win will get this one over the line – with Durrant currently averaging 2.2 legs a match.
