The Premier League regular season reaches its penultimate night at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Thursday night (19:00). Luke Littler picked up his fourth nightly win in Aberdeen, to consolidate his spot at the top of the table, but can he keep up his hot streak in West Yorkshire?

Our Darts expert Sean Rafferty previews this one and gives us his Premier League Darts Leeds predictions, including a double that's been boosted from 5/4 to 6/4!

2 pts Night 15 winner - Luke Littler @ 7/4

Luke Littler continues his dominant spell in the Premier League - having now won four of the last six nights outright, he sits eight points clear at the top of the table.

Littler won outright for us last week at 5/2 and comes in to Leeds at 7/4 to repeat the feat this week but understandably so given his dominant form and what looks a fairly decent draw.

It should be an easy opener against Peter Wright who can barely buy a win in the Premier League, then he faces one of MVG/Price - van Gerwen suffered two opening round defeats on the Pro Tour at the start of the week, losing to Steve Beaton and Karel Sedlacek. Meanwhile, Price has been suffering with an injury to his back, which forced him to withdraw last week. Whether he even features this week is still up for debate but if he does then I think he may struggle.

The 17-year-old has had as good as a week off, having decided to sit out the Pro Tour events at the start of the week and didn’t have an event at the weekend either, so should come here fresh and ready to go. Littler will be playing in the European Tour qualifiers today, which should give him a bit of match sharpness back, although these haven’t been played yet at the time of writing.

7/4 for The Nuke to take the overall win again looks good value to me as the youngster continues to fly at the top of the darts world.

Peter Wright to hit over 1.5 180s @ 1/2

I’ve spoken about Wright’s struggles on the oche a lot this year, he almost seems scared of crossing the winning line in the Premier League, such is his lack of confidence.

However, it hasn’t prevented his ability to hit 180s as we continue to find a bit of value in that market for Snakebite. 4/7 for Wright to hit over 1.5 180s looks a good shout this week as it has been previously - he’s managed to hit over 1.5 180s in seven of his last nine matches.

The pressure is also essentially off him now as he already can’t qualify for Finals night and is as good as guaranteed to finish bottom of the table, in my opinion. He’s playing for pride now, so hopefully Wright can throw with a sense of freedom and nail a few maximums for us.

Rob Cross +2.5 legs handicap @ 1/2

Cross has just begun to find a bit of form again, perhaps just before it’s too late to give himself a chance of making the top four. He’d probably have to make two finals and win at least one of them so it’s a mammoth task, but not one that’s beyond him, given he’s made the final the previous two weeks.He’s averaged over 97.5 in six of his last seven matches, so is finding that form again that saw him do so well at the tail end of last year.

Humphries on the other hand has seen his level of play drop a touch in comparison to February/March, however it was going to be tough to stay at that insane level he was producing. Cross has won two of their three meetings this year - which includes a 6-5 win over Cool Hand in last weeks semi finals. Winning four legs looks an achievable task for Voltage here, as Humphries has already qualified so doesn’t have as much to play for. 1/2 looks a fair price considering.

The treble has been generously boosted from 5/4 all the way out to 6/4 which you can back by clicking the banner below.
