Here are Tom Clee's darts betting tips for night seven in Berlin.
GERWYN PRICE v ROB CROSS
Cross to win, Cross to checkout over 113.5, over 5.5 total 180s
Ignoring his defeat to Michael Van Gerwen on night 3, Cross has dropped just one point this season with a tournament average of 102.7.
Despite playing well, Price has only managed to win one of his last five matches, and lost 7-1 to Cross in this competition last season.
Voltage's finishing has been impressive, checking out on 115 or more in four of the last five weeks.
He's also always good for at least a couple of 180s, while Price has hit more than any other player so far.
JAMES WADE v PETER WRIGHT
Over 11.5 legs, over 5.5 total 180s, Wade to hit the highest checkout
These two have a head-to-head record of 18-17 dating back nearly 10 years, so it seems foolish to try and pick a winner on Thursday.
It will surely be close, though, with Wright drawing nearly a third of his games since joining the Premier League in 2014 and Wade a master of hanging in matches.
Wright's highest tournament checkout of 100 came back in week 1, a mark that Wade has beaten that six times since.
Both these players have been consistent on the 180s, averaging at least three each per night.
MICHAEL VAN GERWEN v DARYL GURNEY
Van Gerwen to win, Van Gerwen highest checkout, Van Gerwen under 2.5 180s
Van Gerwen finished runner-up in the Players Championship Finals the last time these two met in November, but he had won 12 and drawn one of their 13 meetings before that.
That includes a 7-2 thrashing of Gurney in Berlin during last season's Premier League, so he looks a safe bet to repeat the trick on Thursday.
MVG is struggling on the lipstick, however, having gone four weeks without hitting more than a couple of maximums.
But he has hit finishes of 124 and 132 in his last three, during which time Gurney has failed to take out more than 80.
MICHAEL SMITH v MENSUR SULJOVIC
Suljovic to win or draw, Suljovic to hit the most 180s, highest match checkout under 120.5
Suljovic put in his most impressive Premier League performance to date last week, averaging 101.38 to take down an in-form James Wade.
His ponderous style clearly interrupts Smith's rhythm, having won five of their last seven meetings, so the slight outsider can definitely take something from Thursday’s match.
Smith failed to hit a single 180s when they met last season, so there's plenty of value in siding with Suljovic after he rattled off six last week.
There's little to choose between them in terms of checkouts, but the fact they've only managed three finishes of 121 or more in 12 matches means this is probably the safest option.
MAX HOPP v RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD
Van Barneveld to win, Van Barneveld highest checkout under 94.5, under 5.5 total 180s
Given his current form, backing Van Barneveld is obviously a risk, but my hunch says he'll manage to salvage some pride on Thursday.
He comfortably beat Hopp 4-0 when they last met at the World Cup of Darts in Frankfurt last summer, so the German crowd shouldn't bother him.
Barney still hasn't taken out any finish higher than 92 since the opening night, while 180s are also likely to be at a premium.
The Dutchman is averaging just 2.16 per match so far, while Hopp only managed six in eight sets at the World Championship.
