The action on night eight will be staged at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena and here at betting.bet we’ll preview all four quarter-final matches, providing odds from our partners at Unibet.
The Premier League Darts' league stage will reach the halfway point after Thursday's round of matches and it's all still to play for in the push for a spot in the play-offs later this year. The action on night eight will be staged at Newcastle's Utilita Arena and here at betting.bet we'll preview all four quarter-final matches, providing odds from our partners at Unibet.
Michael van Gerwen v Peter Wright
Peter Wright has endured a disastrous Premier League campaign up to now and suffered a comprehensive 6-1 defeat at the hands of MVG last week. Wright has won just one of his seven quarter-final matches to date whilst Michael van Gerwen has reached the semi-final in six of the seven rounds of matches so far. This seems like a routine win for MVG, but odds of 49/20 for a player of Wright's calibre could be too long to ignore. We're going to back Peter Wright to win the night's opening match.
- Michael van Gerwen: 2/7
- Peter Wright: 49/20
Nathan Aspinall v Dimitri Van den Bergh
On paper, this match was the toughest to call last week and so it proved. Belgian, Van den Bergh just edged out Nathan Aspinall to claim a 6-4 win in Nottingham. However, it's a coin toss as to who is going to progress to the semi-final this week. We're going to give this to Nathan Aspinall based simply on the fact he's yet to lose back-to-back quarter-final matches in this year's competition.
- Nathan Aspinall: 22/25
- Dimitri Van den Bergh: 22/25
Gerwyn Price v Jonny Clayton
Last week's event in Nottingham was won by Gerwyn Price who has now jumped up to second overall in the Premier League table. Price is yet to lose a semi-final match in this year's Premier League having reached the final each time he's progressed beyond the quarter-final. If he defeats compatriot, Jonny Clayton for a second week in a row, he's an excellent bet to win the second semi-final.
- Gerwyn Price: 4/7
- Jonny Clayton: 13/10
Michael Smith v Chris Dobey
Chris Dobey was a losing finalist last week having edged out Michael Smith in the quarter-final. The highlight of his evening was a 6-0 whitewash over league leader, Michael van Gerwen. Last week's win halted a run of five straight quarter-final losses for this year's Masters champion. We're backing Dobey to build on last week's win and defeat Michael Smith for a second consecutive week.
- Michael Smith: 3/5
- Chris Dobey: 5/4
