Dave Chisnall to beat James Wade –

Chisnall has taken nine of the last 12 points on offer to climb to fifth in the table.

Wade, on the other hand, is finishing the season with a whimper – averaging just 87.35 and taking only three of his 17 checkout opportunities last week.

And having won the last three meetings between the pair – including a 7-5 victory against the throw in Exeter – Chizzy is a safe bet to claim another on Thursday.

That, however, is unlikely to be comprehensive enough to keep his slim play-off hopes alive.

Phil Taylor to beat Adrian Lewis –

Taylor has been unpredictable of late, outclassing Gary Anderson and Michael van Gerwen in between tame defeats to Chisnall and Wade.

Lewis did manage to get the better of the Power in Glasgow during his mid-season renaissance, but he has since lost four in a row to fall out of contention.

And given that he has won six of their previous nine meetings in the competition, Taylor should get the win he needs to guarantee a 17th play-off appearance in his final season as a Premier League player.   

Peter Wright to beat Raymond van Barneveld –

Wright’s superb season continued on Sunday with a third European Tour title from a possible four – and seventh in total – at the European Darts Grand Prix.

Snakebite whitewashed MVG in that final, and can move above him in the table, albeit momentarily, with a win against Barney.

That shouldn’t prove too difficult, considering the Dutchman has lost his last four league matches on the bounce and won only one of their nine meetings in all competitions since the start of 2015.

Michael van Gerwen to beat Gary Anderson –

The success of both these players means they have faced off in plenty of high-profile matches recently, with Van Gerwen coming out on top in six of their last eight, including the World Championship final.

And while Anderson may think it is a good time to be playing the world No.1, who has won just two of his last five in the competition, that is unlikely to be the case against a player who has never lost back-to-back matches in a single Premier League season.

Throwing first with the chance to top the table for a fifth year in a row – and claim the £25,000 bonus to boot – it would be foolish to back against MVG in the final game of the evening.
