Can Wright sink Mighty Mike again?

Peter Wright had gone into the PDC World Championship Darts Final on January 1st as the underdog against Michael van Gerwen. But right from the get-go Wright was competitive and dialled in. He soared away to take the title, the pinnacle of his career.

But he was not done in January. He went into his next televised event, the Masters and took out Michael Smith in a deciding leg in the Final. So Snakebite’s form just can’t be faulted at the moment. Because of that, he has to be worth backing to come out on top in this latest meeting with MVG as well.

Our betting prediction:
Under 10.5 Legs

(odds taken 22:17 GMT, Tuesday 4th February)

Wright’s record in the career head to head against Van Gerwen is not great. He trails 18-59 (with 2 draws). However, Snakebite has won two of the last three meetings between the players and three of the last six. So he has been finding ways recently to get under the skin of the world number one.


Can MVG find his form?

Micahel van Gerewen, the four-time defending champion of the Premier League Darts title, won both Premier League meetings with Snakebite last year. But by his usual high standards, there has been a bit of a drop in form from the great Dutchman. He failed to defend his World Championship title, because of that loss against Wright.

Then at the recent Masters competition, Van Gerwen suffered a huge upset in the first round. He was beaten 10-6 by Jonny Clayton in a seismic upset. So it is notable that he has not looked quite as sharp and he is usually a strong starter to a new year. Mighty Mike was trying to win his sixth straight Masters for example. Granted throughout the long Premier League Darts season he would be expected to triumph again in terms of teh title, but right now, he looks a shade vulnerable.
