Gerwyn Price v Rob Cross
A tough match to call here with both players playing well at the moment. Both are residing in the top three for averages this year, with Gerwyn Price throwing 99.22 and Rob Cross 99.87. If we look back to the beginning of 2018, it’s 95.49 v 98.11 so the match odds look spot. Their head-to-head record is close with Cross leading 3-2, so a speculative play on a bigger price in taking the draw. In the 12 league matches so far both players have only lost once – both against van Gerwen.
James Wade v Peter Wright
James Wade is the outsider in this match and that looks wrong given the way the Machine has played the last 12+ months. There’s not a lot to split them in terms of averages since the beginning of 2018 – 95.13 v 96.75 – but crucially Wade is winning 70% of his matches to Wright’s 67%. He also leads their head-to-head 18-17, including winning their previous meeting this year in the semi-final at the Masters in January.
Michael van Gerwen v Daryl Gurney
Michael van Gerwen returned to winning ways last week with a comfortable 7-2 victory over Gerwyn Price. Daryl Gurney failed to win again and now sits 2nd bottom in the table. He made the final of the Players Championship on Saturday but then lost in round two the next day which encapsulates his up-and-down form over the last 12+ months. He’s lost 18 of his 22 matches against MVG and he’ll either bring his A game and run him close, as he did in their last meeting when he won the Players Championship Finals in November, or the Green Machine will crush him, and there’s a much greater chance of that happening.
Michael Smith v Mensur Suljovic
This is 7th v 6th in the Premier League, and the odds look like they should be a lot closer than they actually are. In 2019, Michael Smith is averaging 97.82 v Mensur Suljovic’s 97.71. In the Premier League, it’s 96.37 v 100.99. And since 2018, it’s 97.24 v 96.92. So, there looks to be very little to split them and at a bigger price, the Serbian certainly represents the value. Indeed, Suljovic leads their head-to-head 8-6, whilst he also won their only Premier League meeting 7-2.
Max Hopp v Raymond van Barneveld
None of the contenders have won a match yet but there looks to be a very good chance of that happening this week, especially with Max Hopp being backed in his home country by a crowd of 12,000 in Berlin. He clearly relishes playing in his home country given the last time he played there he made the semi-finals of the European Championship in October. Raymond van Barneveld unsurprisingly lost again last week, to leave him rock bottom, and it’s no surprise when he’s averaging just 92.58. Since 2018, Hopp is averaging 92.53 and the head-to-head stands at 2-2. Take the home player here.
