Michael Smith continues to make strong waves in the Premier League darts 2020 after taking a win over Michael van Gerwen last week. Next on his list is reigning World Champion Peter Wright who has produced some inconsistent form so far in the campaign.

Smith rising to the occasion

In what is his fourth season in the Premier League darts, Michael Smith is heading into the sixth round of action sitting in second place in the table. Part of the reason for this is because he produced a 7-4 win over Michael van Gerwen last week.

That was the third straight win for Smith in this season’s Premier League and his fourth undefeated. So he has really got it together. This week’s action on Merseyside is in his neck of the woods (born in St Helens) so he should be extra fired up.

The former under-21 World Champion was a faller in the round of 32 at the UK Open over the weekend, falling in a narrow loss against Rob Cross. But it was a consistent run and that is something that he has managed well this season after reaching the final of this year’s Masters too.

Our betting prediction:
Smith Most 180s

(odds taken 08:26 GMT Wednesday, 11th March)

Cross holds the second-highest three-dart average for this year’s Premier League currently, behind only MVG. Smith is W10 D2 L17 in the head to head with Peter Wright. However, Smith won the most recent meeting which was earlier this year at the Belgian Darts Championship


Can Wright build on success?

Wright has won none of the four previous Premier League Darts matches against Smith (D2 L2). The last two have been drawn and Snakebite might be happy with that on the night against an in-form player.

Last week Wright bagged himself the second win of the season and it was a strong 7-3 success over Nathan Aspinall as well. That was easily the best we have seen Wright play in this campaign, looking relaxed and he finished with a massive three-dart average of 110 on the night.

That fantastic night of scoring boosted his three dart average up to 96 in the campaign, which is average more than spectacular. He has however, scored the joint-highest number of 180’s in this season’s league, 17 of them alongside Gary Anderson.

The overall concern will be a lack of consistency there from the Scot in this season’s Premier League as he goes in search of back to back match wins for the first time. That return to form last week was fantastic but it remains to be seen if he can get that elusive Premier League win against Smith.


Michael Smith vs Peter Wright Betting Advice

Smith is up in the north west and will be well supported. He has been chugging along in great form recently and tops out Wright in the three-dart average for this campaign. Smith is well worth taking on to beat Wright in the 180 tally on the night as well.

He can fire them off rapidly. The last two meetings in the Premier League between Wright and Smith have been drawn, which naturally leads to it being a tempting proposition to happen again.


Key Facts – Michael Smith vs Peter Wright Betting Tip

  • Michael Smith beat Van Gerwen last week
  • Michael Smith is unbeaten in four previous Premier League matches with Wright
  • Peter Wright has won 2 of 5 matches in this season’s league


But we think that Smith just shades this one on the night. He has been really dialled in and his win over Michael van Gerwen last week wasn’t out of luck. Smith was ruthless and accurate and can take down Snakebite. Smith has the highest check out average in this season’s league of 133. Wright’s checkout average is 92.
