Mensur Suljovic v Gary Anderson: Anderson (-2.5) legs – 11/10
After a little turbulence at the start of his Premier League campaign, it’s been clear skies for The Flying Scotsman Gary Anderson of late.
He heads into Thursday night’s tie with Mensur Suljovic unbeaten in four weeks (one win, three draws) and could end the evening in a top four spot with a victory here. Standing in his way is the awkward Austrian, but The Gentle one’s form has been as soft as his nickname recently.
Suljovic has lost his last two of outings convincingly and only claimed a total five legs from that pair of games combined. That has us fancying Anderson to soar to an easy win in this one and don’t be surprised to see him cover the (-2.5) legs at 11/10 either.
Raymond van Barneveld v Michael van Gerwen: Van Gerwan most 180s – 4/6
Ah now we are talking! Darts’ Dutch derby between Raymond van Barneveld and Michael van Gerwen rarely disappoints and we hope Thursday’s match-up is no different.
Five points from six in his last three games has pushed Barney right into the semi-final mix, but he faces a tough task if he’s to down league leader MVG. Van Gerwan has only lost one game all campaign and boasts an almost unbelievable 103.09 average from his seven contests to date.
He’s also battered in 23 180s so far, six more than Van Barneveld has managed to date. Barney’s average is only 94.11 (which is still good going) and we’re tipping the great scoring power of Mighty Mike to squeeze out more 180s at 4/6.
Simon Whitlock v Peter Wright: Whitlock win – 11/5
If you were to compare Peter Wright results in the past few weeks to a Premier League team, then West Brom would really be your only option.
Snakebite seems all out of venom at present and he arrives in Northern Ireland on the back of three confidence-sapping 7-1 defeats. He meets Simon Withlock in the night’s closing tie and The Wizard will be hoping he can regain some the magic he found in the opening three weeks.
Given Wright’s troubles, it’s hard to fathom how Whitlock is an 11/5 outsider in this contest. But, we reckon you should capitalise on our traders’ generosity while you still can!
