Littler Favourite as Final Play Off Battle Concludes

Red Dragon Darts

It’s the final week of the regular season of the BetMGM Premier League Darts this evening as all eyes turn to Sheffield to see who will clinch the remaining play off place. 

Luke Littler and Peter Wright kick off the action in Sheffield with both players sat at opposite ends of the table. Littler will be hoping to round the regular season off with yet another win and he starts as an overwhelming favourite to beat Wright at 1/9, while it’s 24/5 for Wright to pull off a shock victory. 

The highlight fixture of the evening is next with Nathan Aspinall taking on Michael Smith with the winner set to clinch the remaining play-off spot. Smith defeated Aspinall in the same stage last week but with both’s season hopes on the line, it’s set to be an intriguing encounter. Both players are priced at 22/25 to get the win.

Luke Humphries, fresh from his round win in his hometown Leeds last week, faces Wales’ Gerwyn Price in the third fixture of the evening. Humphries is the 12/25 favourite to record his 20th win of the campaign, while Price will be playing for pride and he’s 31/20 to get the victory.

Dutchman, Michael van Gerwen, rounds off the quarter final action against Rob Cross. Van Gerwen will be looking to cement his position in third with a win and he’s priced at 3/5 to pick up the two points, with Cross available at 5/4 to advance to the semi finals in Sheffield. 

Night 16 Winner: 

Luke Littler (7/4) and Luke Humphries (5/2) have both enjoyed stellar debut seasons in this year’s Premier League and they head to Sheffield as the favourites to win yet another round.  

 “With just one spot up for grabs at the 02 Arena next week, we’re set for an intriguing finale to the regular season of the BetMGM Premier League Darts. All eyes will be on the second quarter final fixture of the evening as Michael Smith and Nathan Aspinall, who are separated by just one point, face off with the winner set to claim a spot at the play offs next Thursday.
