For the last eight weeks, the PDC Premier League Darts has been played out across five different venues in the UK and Ireland and it makes sense to check back in with the tournament to see how it has progressed since the first week of action.

Eight of the best players in the PDC have been competing to win each of the five nights of action contested and we have had four different winners of those nights, while one player has yet to win a match at all in this year’s tournament.

Bet365 Sport carries a whole host of pre-match betting on each of the games taking place every Thursday night, plus you can also enjoy In Play betting when the games are in action.

Current PDC Premier League Table

  1. Michael van Gerwen – 25pts (+31)
  2. Gerwyn Price – 18pts (+20)
  3. Nathan Aspinall – 13pts (-12)
  4. Michael Smith – 12pts (-2)
  5. Chris Dobey – 10pts (-2)
  6. Dimitri Van den Bergh – 9pts (-2)
  7. Jonny Clayton – 7pts (-13)
  8. Peter Wright – 2pts (-20)

The top four players (in italics) at the end of the league stage will earn a spot in the final week playoffs at the 02 in London to decide who is the winner of the tournament.

With Van Gerwen and Price opening up something of a comfortable gap at the top of the table, but there’s real competition for third and fourth spots at the moment as we head towards this week’s action which comes from the Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin.

Night 9 Preview – Mercedes-Benz Arena, Berlin

Quarter Finals (best of 11)

  • Dmitri Van Den Bergh (6/4) v Michael Smith (8/15)

This should be a very exciting game to start the action off in Germany as Van Den Bergh will likely enjoy plenty of support as one of only two European players in the field.

However, Michael Smith needs to pick up some points after losing in the quarterfinals in three of the last four events and he is just hanging on to fourth place in the table. We’re going to go for a close one here but for Smith to earn the win at 8/15.

  • Nathan Aspinall (4/5) v Chris Dobey (Evens)

Two of the up and coming stars of the Premier League, Nathan Aspinall has been very consistent, losing just two quarter final games (only Michael van Gerwen has a better record), while Chris Dobey ended his long run of quarter final losses by finishing runner up Week 7 and the semi’s in Week 8.

That has moved Dobey up to 5th in the table and as the odds suggest, this does look to be a very even game and I am going to go Aspinall to land the narrowest of wins here at 4/5.

  • Jonny Clayton (12/5) v Michael van Gerwen (1/3)

Poor Jonny Clayton is the man who has to face Michael Van Gerwen in the quarterfinals this week and the Welshman faces a very difficult task against the Dutchman who who three weeks in a row from weeks 4-6 and has finished runner up in two more events (week 1, week 8).

Van Gerwen seems to be hitting his best form once again and that is reflected in the odds here and I can’t not back him to land the win here at 1/3.

  • Peter Wright (7/4) v Gerwyn Price (4/9)

Peter Wright has been in poor form in this event, winning just one game on Week 6, and losing every other match. He is on just 2 points and suffering from a disappointing lack of form.

In contrast Gerwyn Price has won the last two events to move up into second in the table and the Welshman is rightfully the 4/9 favourite to land a win here, which I feel he should achieve.

*Odds shown were correct with bet365 Sport as of 29th March 2023 but may change in the build up to them starting later on in the evening.
