7:10pm: Dimitri van den Bergh v Jonny Clayton – Clayton to Win

Premier League Darts action returns on Thursday night and Paddy has put on a fine offer: Place a darts acca and get a free football Bet Builder.

First up is the Belgian Dimitri van den Bergh against Jonny Clayton of Wales, which sees the World No. 11 face off against the World No. 7.

Clayton has won three of his last five meetings with VDB and we’re confident he can make it four in his last six.

Van Den Bergh, who lost 6-0 against Michael van Gerwen in their PDC World Championship semi-final last month, recently admitted he was surprised to be included in the Premier League so we’re siding with Clayton to get the job done on Thursday night.

7:40pm: Michael Smith v Michael van Gerwen – Van Gerwen to Win

We’ve got World No.1 Michael Smith against World No. 3 Michael Van Gerwen on Thursday and a repeat of the thrilling PDC World Championship final.

Smith won at Ally Pally and he followed that up with a Bahrain Masters success when beating Gerwyn Price in the final.

Smith is coming into this on the back of his 11-7 defeat against Chris Dobey in The Masters, while Van Gerwen lost 10-7 against Rob Cross.

It’s hard to split the pair – and hopefully we’ll get another thriller – but we’re siding with Van Gerwen to get the job done and avenge his PDC World Championship defeat.

8:10pm: Peter Wright v Chris Dobey – Wright to Win

Peter Wright and Chris Dobey have only faced each other twice, with ‘Snakebite’ coming out on top on both occasions. Wright is currently the World No. 2 behind Smith, whereas Dobey is ranked 21st in the world.

Dobey, however, is coming off his Masters success after beating Cross in the final last weekend.

Wright was knocked out by Cross in the semi-finals but he impressed in the tournament, beating Dave Chisnall and Clayton.

Dobey will be full of confidence after last week but we reckon Wright’s experience will shine through and he’ll come out on top.

8:40pm: Nathan Aspinall v Gerwyn Price – Price to Win

Finally, we’ve got Nathan Aspinall v Gerwyn Price, which sees the World No. 9 face off against the always-box office World No. 4.

It didn’t go to plan for Price at The Masters, with the Welshman losing against Dirk van Duijvenbode in the Round of 16. It wasn’t the best PDC World Championships for Price either as we all know when he came out with ear defenders on…

However, Price impressed at the Bahrain Masters last month, losing to PDC World Champion Smith 8-6 in the final.

Aspinall has lost three of his last four matches at the Masters, the PDC World Championships and the Players Championship so Price to Win makes sense to wrap up our acca.

Darts betting tips:

7:10pm: Dimitri van den Bergh v Jonny Clayton – Clayton to Win
7:40pm: Michael Smith v Michael van Gerwen – Van Gerwen to Win
8:10pm: Peter Wright v Chris Dobey – Wright to Win
8:40pm: Nathan Aspinall v Gerwyn Price – Price to Win
