Premier League Darts Bet Boosts: Michael Smith to add to Peter Wright's misery

We’re offering even bigger prices on selected markets for Night Four of the 2023 Premier League, including a 15/8 double as world champion Michael Smith looks to continue his winning streak against a struggling Peter Wright.

Premier League Darts Night Four 
Match-by-Match Guide:

Michael Smith (4/6) v Peter Wright (6/5)

World champion Michael Smith (4/6) is on the crest of a wave following last week's Night Three success in Dublin, whilst his dance partner for the opener on Night Four couldn't be experiencing this Premier League campaign any more differently. 

Two-time world champion Peter Wright (6/5) is yet to register a win in this year's Premier League, crashing out at the first hurdle on each of the first three nights. 

He has perhaps been unlucky to bump into Night One finalist Chris Dobey as well as eventual finalists in the following two weeks. 

However, for a player of Wright's calibre they should all have been winnable games. Night Three in particular was a huge let down; coming up against an out of form Dimitri Van den Bergh in front of a home crowd in Glasgow, Wright really should have been winning. 

It's hard to pinpoint what is going wrong for the Scotsman, but he looks all at sea this campaign and last week's champion can take full advantage. 

'Bully Boy' put in a vintage set of performances in Glasgow, outscoring all of his opponents and hitting big checkouts along the way to show just why he is the world champion. 

Ordinarily, Peter Wright would offer a stern test for the man from St. Helens but this doesn't look to be an ordinary occasion and Smith looks set to continue his win streak.

Gerwyn Price (8/15) v Dimitri Van den Bergh (6/4)

Dimitri Van den Bergh (6/4) was a shock inclusion in this year's Premier League after a lacklustre 2022, but he more than proved his talent last week when reaching the Night Three final. 

The Belgian threw more 180s than anyone across the evening in Glasgow, he then gave world number one Michael Smith a tough test in the final but didn't quite have enough to overpower the Bully Boy. 

His opponent this week, Gerwyn Price (8/15), has had something of an indifferent Premier League campaign so far this year. 

Other than his Night Two win in front of a home crowd in Cardiff, Price has been disappointing this season. 

The 'Ice Man' is the only player to have failed to register an average of 100 or more in any of his games so far, and last week participated in one of the lowest scoring games of the season in his loss to Michael Smith.

In terms of class, he should have too much for Van den Bergh, but form suggests otherwise and Price could be sent packing early for the third time in four weeks.

Jonny Clayton (8/11) v Nathan Aspinall (11/10)

Nathan Aspinall (11/10) comes into this match as an underdog, but given his recent performances he should only be considered underdog in price, and not ability. 

He has played some impressive darts so far this campaign, making it through the opening game on all three nights so far and taking some impressive scalps along the way, including an in-form Michael Van Gerwen last week. 

He has been firing the trebles in too, hitting more maximums than anybody on Night Two in Cardiff. 

His opponent this week, Jonny Clayton (8/11) has only won once this Premier League campaign and so, despite winning that one game well, is perhaps a shock odds-on favourite. 

What is promising for the Welshman is that his best performances, including that win against Chris Dobey, all came last week, so there is a case to be made for Clayton being the form player in this match up. 

It looks set to be a cracker whatever the end result, but Aspinall is sure to make it a tough test in an attempt to continue his streak of progressing past the opening game on each night.

Chris Dobey (12/5) v Michael van Gerwen (1/3)

The hero on Night One, Chris Dobey (12/5) has failed to register another win since that night in Belfast. 

He hit the most 180s that evening as well as registering the first 170 checkout of the Premier League campaign, but has been unsuccessful in reaching those levels again since. 

Michael van Gerwen (1/3) on the other hand hasn't struggled for consistency. He has outscored all of his opponents so far this campaign and also added the second 'big fish' of the tournament with his 170 checkout against Nathan Aspinall last week. 

Where the Dutchman has struggled though, is converting his high level of performance into results. 

His level of play has been more than enough to warrant the title on any of the three nights so far, yet he is still awaiting his moment at the top. 

On paper, this should be a routine win against an out of sorts Dobey, who was the Dutchman's conqueror in Night One's final. 

However, on paper, all of Van Gerwen's performances so far should have resulted in a routine win, so don't be surprised if this is another closely-contested, high-scoring affair.
