Premier League Darts Night 5: Michael Smith v Michael van Gerwen Betting Tips
Michael van Gerwen got back to winning ways last week in Dublin and he’ll look to remain at the top in Exeter where he takes on Michael Smith.
Smith is unbeaten in three though, making for an intriguing tie, although we can see MvG stepping up to take the win. Paddy Power is pricing the Dutchman at 10/3 to win, hit the most 180s and hit the highest checkout – a punt well worth taking.
Van Gerwen to continue good Premier League form
Gerwyn Price knocked van Gerwen out of the Belgium Masters a few days ago so the Dutchman will want to get back to winning ways and has the perfect opportunity to do so in Exeter.
He’s 4/7 to win the game with Paddy Power and we’d expect him to do so. The MvG -3.5 handicap could be a good punt at 15/8, although a score of 7-3 may be underestimating Smith slightly.
Our Tip: van Gerwen to win by three games
Smith’s run of form is likely to come to an end in Exeter. van Gerwen is the master of the Premier League and we’d fancy a 7-4 victory in this one priced at 6/1.
