Punters Fancy a Clash of the Lukes:

Darts Takes Ireland by Storm as WGP sponsor sees things a little differently

Luke Humphries is the 2/1 favourite with bookies BoyleSports to win night 8 of the Premier League Darts as an octet of darts stars will take to the stage on Thursday night in the 3 Arena. 

Humphries is set to take on Peter Wright in the opening quarter-final of the night and is a red-hot 1/5 favourite to progress into the semi-finals. With Nathan Aspinall taking on Rob Cross and Michael van Gerwen set to play Gerwyn Price, there is plenty to whet the appetite of darts fans early on. 

Darts sensation Luke Littler has lost just one opening match after seven nights of the Premier League, but he does face stiff competition in former world champion Michael Smith who has beaten Littler in two out of three clashes this year. Savvy punters have already snapped up some of the 21/10 offered by BoyleSports on Smith cementing his head-to-head record, with Littler just 4/11 to pull it back to all-square. 

All eyes will on the prize at the end of the night and Littler is the 5/2 second favourite to put an end to Luke Humphries’ winning streak, while Michael van Gerwen, who is bidding to record a fourth win from just eight nights in this year’s Premier League, is rated a 5/1 chance. 

The Dublin crowd will be hoping for a nine darter and with Luke Littler hitting three this year and Michael Smith recording one on Monday, excitement will be high ahead of their opening quarter final and a nine darter on the night can be backed at 6/1. 

With the darts returning to Dublin this week it looks set to be the ‘Lukes’ taking centre stage. We saw a 9 darter here in 2020 and punters are hoping that we’ll see another one to cap off a sensational night of darts in the capital.
