Here are Tom Clee‘s darts betting tips for the night 13 in Birmingham.
MENSUR SULJOVIC v MICHAEL SMITH
Suljovic to win, Smith to hit the most 180s and highest checkout
Suljovic has got the wood on Smith at the moment, winning six of their last eight meetings.
That includes a 7-2 victory earlier in this competition, one of five victories for the Austrian during his last seven matches.
Five 180s for Smith last week means he’s now thrown the joint-most in the tournament, while Suljovic has the joint-fewest.
These two are unpredictable on their finishing, but Smith has hit the higher checkout on nine of the 12 nights so far.
ROB CROSS v GERWYN PRICE
Cross to win, Price to hit the most 180s, highest match checkout over 123.5
Cross has won eight of his last nine Premier League matches that weren’t against Michael van Gerwen, including a 7-4 victory over Price in Berlin.
Price is tied with Smith at the top of the 180 charts, hitting four or more eight times already this season.
Cross has only managed that on four occasions and didn’t hit a single maximum last time he was on stage.
At least one of these two should produce a monster checkout, given they’ve surpassed this mark 12 times in the last nine rounds of fixtures.
DARYL GURNEY v PETER WRIGHT
Over 13.5 legs, Wright under 3.5 180s, Gurney highest checkout under 102.5
These two have played each other three times in the Premier League, with every single one ending as a draw.
It’s fair, then, to expect this one to go the distance, especially as neither player is in particularly good form.
Wright’s scratchiness can be summed up by the fact he’s only managed more than three 180s three times all season.
Gurney, meanwhile, has failed to hit a three-figure checkout in eight of his last nine matches.
JAMES WADE v MICHAEL VAN GERWEN
Van Gerwen (-3.5), under 6.5 total 180s, Wade to hit the highest checkout
Wade has won his last two against Van Gerwen, but the Dutchman’s form suggests that run cannot continue.
The world No. 1 averaged 107.87 in overtaking Cross at the top of the table last week, with his last seven wins in this competition coming by four or more legs.
Neither of these players are reliable on the 180s, with Wade hitting more than three once in his last nine and MVG twice in his last 11.
The Machine has hit twice as many 100+ checkouts as Van Gerwen, so it makes sense to back him to win that contest at least.
