Gerwyn Price opens his 2020 Premier League Darts account with a tough fixture in Aberdeen. The Welshman, who is one of the front runners to walk away with the title, is taking on last year’s runner up Rob Cross.

Cross can challenge Price once again?

In the two Premier League Darts meetings that Rob Cross had with Price last season, it was a W1 D1 record that the Englishman took. Cross did also take a win in the most recent of meetings which was at the European Championship Final back at the end of October. That did snap a four-match winning streak that Gerwyn Price was on against Cross, but it suggests that there is a little value in Cross.

Former World Champion Rob Cross is only in his third edition of the Premier League Darts. He made the semi-finals in 2018 and then the Final last year. So he is a player who enjoys the format of the competition and he finished second in last season’s regular-season standings behind only Michael van Gerwen.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
12/1

There was a big contrast in output between these two in last season’s competition. Cross won 10 of his 16 regular season matches, Gerwyn Price only six. The recent form hasn’t been hot from Cross who was a second-round loser in the World Championships. Then he crashed out of the first round of the Masters. But he does offer a lot of appeal in these Premier League Darts matches given his record over the last two seasons.

 

Not an easy opener for Price

Welshman Gerwyn Price didn’t make it to the final four of last season’s Premier League Darts. He finished last in his debut season in 2018 and then was a fifth-place finisher last season. Price had been a big title-threat since the Champions League of Darts last season, however. He has made it to at least the quarter-finals in each of his last six televised events.

But by the same token, there have been a lot of missed opportunities by him at the business end of tournaments, such as his semi-final loss to Peter Wright at the World Championships and a quarter-final bow at the recent Masters against Gary Anderson (where Price lost 10-2). In the first round there he had only edged out Simon Whitlock on a deciding set.
