Cazoo Premier League Darts: Night Six Betting Preview

The M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool will host night six of the Premier League on Thursday with the league table already starting to take shape. Michael van Gerwen has recorded back-to-back wins in Dublin and Exeter and now looks nailed on to claim one of the four play-off places. As we preview all four of Thursday’s quarter-final matches, freebets.ltd.uk have provided the latest free bet offers and odds.


Gerwyn Price v Peter Wright

Peter Wright has made a disastrous start to this year’s Premier League and with five rounds of matches behind us he is yet to register a single quarter-final win.

Thursday’s opponent, Gerwyn Price, has been consistently inconsistent in this year’s Premier League having lost in the quarter-final on nights one, three and five, whilst he’s reached the final on nights two and four. Price finds himself in the tougher half the draw this week and reaching another final would be some achievement.

Wright and Price have only met once since last year’s Premier League with Peter Wright claiming an 11-5 win in the final of the Nordic Masters in January.

Match odds:
Gerwyn Price: 4/6
Peter Wright: 23/20


Michael van Gerwen v Jonny Clayton

MVG is a player right at the top of his game at the moment and is now the red-hot favourite to claim a record-breaking seventh Premier League title. Jonny Clayton is aiming to avenge last week’s final loss to Michael van Gerwen as he takes on the Premier League’s runaway leader in the second quarter-final.

Clayton got 2023 off to an underwhelming start but the Welshman has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks. Having lost back-to-back quarter-finals at the start of the Premier League, Clayton reached successive semi-finals before last week’s final defeat. Can he go one better this week? He certainly has a better chance of winning Thursday’s second quarter-final than Unibet’s odds of 19/10 would suggest.

Match odds:
Michael van Gerwen: 2/5
Jonny Clayton: 19/10


Chris Dobey v Nathan Aspinall

Nathan Aspinall was perhaps a surprise inclusion in this year’s Premier League, despite reaching the final of both the World Grand Prix and Grand Slam of Darts in 2022. Aspinall’s solitary televised ranking win came in the 2019 UK Open. Yet, Aspinall finds himself in third position in the Premier League with just once quarter-final loss in the first five weeks of Premier League action.

Having won the opening night of the Premier League, last year’s Masters Champion, Chris Dobey, looked like he could be a real threat in the competition this year. However, Dobey has lost four consecutive quarter-finals since and now finds himself languishing in seventh position in the Premier League table.

However, a closer look at Chris Dobey’s four quarter-final defeats will offer great encouragement to any would-be backers. In two of the four evenings, Dobey has lost to the eventual winners, losing to Gerwyn Price in Cardiff and Michael van Gerwen in Dublin just over a week ago. In his other two quarter-final losses, Dobey has been eliminated with a 100+ average.

In a repeat of the semi-final from night one in Belfast, we’re expecting Chris Dobey to once again get the better of his compatriot.

Match odds:
Chris Dobey: Evens
Nathan Aspinall: 3/4


Michael Smith v Dimitri Van den Bergh

World number one, Michael Smith is the youngest player in this year’s Premier League, but he’s made an encouraging start to the tournament. Quarter-final losses in weeks one and five bookend a series of positive results between nights two and four. Michael Smith was the outright winner on night three in Glasgow, recording a 109.42 average in the final. 

In Liverpool, Smith will face the losing finalist from night three, Dimitri Van den Bergh, in Thursday’s final quarter-final match.

He may be sat in a lowly fifth position in the Premier League but Dimitri Van den Bergh has statistically been one of the most consistent performers in the competition so far. Until losing 6-2 to Jonny Clayton in last week’s semi-final, the Belgian had won at least four legs in every single match he’s played in the tournament so far.

Match odds:
Michael Smith: 11/20
Dimitri Van den Bergh: 27/20
