Betway Premier League night 15 picks: Fight for final play-off spot to go down to leg difference

The tournament travels to the Netherlands for the first time on Thursday, with two players still in contention to make the semis

100/30 – Robert Thornton to beat James Wade

The first match of the evening has nothing riding on it, and that should suit Robert Thornton who has been out of contention for some time in this tournament.

James Wade, on the other hand, has only just dropped out of semi-final contention meaning his motivation could well suffer as a result.

The Machine started the competition well but his form has tailed off more recently, with consecutive 7-1 defeats ruining his play-off chances.

A dead rubber is always a tough to call, but the Thorn is well used to fighting for a lost cause and so looks the more likely to get the victory here.

10/11 – Peter Wright to beat Raymond van Barneveld

The real action begins in the second clash of the night with Peter Wright having the chance to move into the top four with a win over Raymond van Barneveld.

Wright seems to have turned his season around in recent weeks, picking up five points against three former champions in Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson and James Wade.

He is unlikely to struggle against another on Thursday, with Barney never coming close to troubling the top of the table after an impressive win in the first week.

The Dutchman will be desperate to put on a performance in front of his home crowd, but having won their last three showdowns it is Wright who has both the form and the momentum to prevail once again.

7/2 – Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis to draw

If Wright does win then Lewis will need a point (or maybe even two depending on leg difference) to make it into the semis, a tough ask against the current world champion.

Jackpot has tended to do well against those below him in the Betway Premier League table but struggled against those above.

Currently sitting one place higher than him in third, Anderson has no pressure on him having already wrapped up his play-off spot and being unable to catch the top two.

Lewis has made no secret of his desire to make a mark on this tournament, however, and should have enough to get over the line even if it is via a nervy draw.

4/6 – Michael van Gerwen to beat Phil Taylor

The battle for top spot comes down to the final game, with Michael van Gerwen currently edging it on leg difference.

Mighty Mike had endured a dodgy few weeks but has come storming back to with three wins in a row.

The Power has been superb this year, losing just twice in 15 games, yet he has only beaten MVG once in their last 11 meetings.

The Dutchman certainly has his number, and having let a 5-1 lead slip in their draw earlier in the tournament, is unlikely to be as generous in front of his home fans as he seeks to secure the top spot for a fourth season in a row.
