Premier League Darts Betting Preview – Week 2 Glasgow
There are some great betting opportunities during Thursday night’s Premier League Darts action which takes place in Glasgow. We kept a close eye on the weekend’s action and have factored in to this week’s Premier League Darts betting predictions.
Far away from the Sky Sports TV cameras a number of darts biggest names have been in action over the weekend playing in one or two PDC Players Championships in Wigan. Michael van Gerwen won the first of the two events taking his winning sequence to 18 and then won four more to reach the quarter final of the second competition. Along the way he threw a host of 100+ average games and even recorded a nine-dart finish.
Of course we know full well about MVG’s abilities and that’s reflected on his 1/3 odds (William Hill) to beat Mensur Suljovic this week. But we do have a genuine dark-horse in the shape of this week’s Premier League invite player, Glen Durrant…
Glen’s Got Gurney Covered?
The reigning BDO World Darts Champion Glen Durrant showed no signs of nerves when competing as a PDC player for the first time at the weekend and he marched all the way to the final of the second competition. He was beaten 8-7 by Dave Chisnall in the final but he beat Joe Cullen 7-4, John Henderson 6-4, Robert Thornton 6-4 and Peter Wright 6-3 along the way.

These results must have given him no end of confidence and we think he can beat Daryl Gurney at a tasty 7/5 (bet365*) this Thursday. Gurney at his best is a handful for anyone but he has not been at his best and he was a first round casualty in the Masters and beaten by in the Premier League Darts last week. On both occasions he took an early lead, so those losses are unforgivable.
Crossing off Rob in Favour of James Wade
Elsewhere James Wade posted an excellent 107.9 average in one of his weekend Players Championship matches and he’s another strong fancy on Thursday given, once again, how poorly his rival is playing.
Rob Cross is his opponent on this occasion and the 2018 PDC World Darts Champion must have been disappointed to only draw against Peter Wright last week after racing to a 3-1 lead. He’s actually had a lot of disappointments recently and James Wade has beat Rob Cross on four of the five occasions they met in 2018. Understanding that, how can ‘the Machine’ be a 2/1 poke on Thursday?

Mensur Suljovic to Claim the Highest Checkout
Our other fancies this week include Mensur Suljovic to have the highest checkout in his match against MVG. This darts bet is 9/4 at Coral and on the stats we have run through the blender it looks way too big. The Austrian claimed this accolade when this pair last met, at the start of the month in the Masters, incidentally.
In the Peter Wright vs Michael Smith game the opening checkout being 40.5+ is priced at 10/11 with Betway. Based on both players recent trends, it appears a very generous price.
Summary: Premier League Darts Betting Predictions for Glasgow…
Glen Durrant to beat Daryl Gurney at 7/5 with bet365*
James Wade to beat Rob Cross at 2/1 with William Hill
Mensur Suljovic to have the highest checkout against MVG at 2/1 with Coral
Wright/Smith first leg checkout 40.5+ 10/11 Betway Sports
* Odds correct at the time of writing
