Darts Betting Tips: Barneveld’s match bets for the Champions League

Barney's won more trophies than you can shake your darts at. Who's he backing at this Champions League?


Peter Wright v Michael Smith

Peter Wright leads their rivalry 15-9, and they’ve drawn twice. In 2019 at the Pro Tour in Wigan Wright beat Smtih 6-5, and in week 11 of the Pro Tour he did the same.

In the Premier League, they had two draws this year. Even though Michael Smith hasn’t beaten Peter this year, I still believe that Bully Boy is the better one in form and that he will beat Peter Wright, 11-8.

Selection: Michael Smith to win 11/8 @ 17/2

Michael van Gerwen v Gerwyn Price

Michael leads their head-to-head meetings 16-0!

They’ve had one draw together, this year in the Premier League. In the Dutch Masters this year Michael won 7-6, and he won 6-5 in the European Darts Open.

In the other Premier League game, MVG won 7-2. The only time Price has never lost to Michael was that draw, versus 16 wins for MVG.

Based on this, even though Gerwyn is in good form, Michale should win this game. I would look at the 11-7 in the correct score.

Selection: Michael van Gerwen to beat Gerwyn Price 11-7

Barney’s Semi-final double pays out at over 6/4

Michael Smith to beat Peter Wright @ 9/10
