The Premier League roadshow heads to the East Midlands and the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham on Thursday night (19:00). World Champion Luke Humphries was back to his very best when winning last week but can he keep up that momentum? Our Darts expert Sean Rafferty previews this one and gives us his predictions for the evenings action. 

Premier League Darts Nottingham Betting Tips

Draw

Peter Wright vs Gerwyn Price

Luke Humphries vs Michael Smith

Michael van Gerwen vs Luke Littler

Rob Cross vs Nathan Aspinall

Luke Humphries to beat Michael Smith @ 4/11

Humphries has been a man on form. He did however lose to his friend Ryan Searle at the weekend in Belgium, but bowed out with a 101.5 average, no mean feat. Cool Hand has averaged 101+ in his last five matches, so the form is evidently there. He romped his way to the title on Night six last week and looks to have an easy settler here against out of sorts Michael Smith, who he beat 6-3 in the final the previous week.

Smith averaged 87 in a 6-2 defeat to De Decker at the weekend, with Bully Boy continuing to struggle to find any real consistency and would need to find so much more to win this match. 4/11 is more than a fair price on Humphries to win, although I wouldn’t put anyone off the handicaps if they are feeling more ambitious.

Luke Littler most 180s vs Michael van Gerwen @ 4/5

Littler has had another sensational week - winning the Belgian Darts Open and quite frankly playing out of his skin for the duration of it.

Since winning Night four of Premier League, van Gerwen has lost his last four matches and has averaged below 95 in all of them - he also looks to be having a few issues with an injury to his shoulder.

Littler is playing at the top of his game and MVG appears to be the opposite. Since winning the Bahrain Masters final, MVG has now won the last three meetings between them so I’d rather swerve a Littler win and instead back him to hit most 180s.

MVG has hit two or less in his last three first to six leg matches, whereas Littler has hit 3+ 180s in his last six first to six leg matches, 4/5 is more than backable based on the stats.

Rob Cross to beat Nathan Aspinall @ 4/7

I'm struggling to jump off Cross of late - he continues to perform to a high standard and was fairly unlucky last week, losing to Humphries in the semi finals but still averaged 108. He also made the final of the Belgian Darts Open last weekend, where he lost 8-7 to Luke Littler but again averaged 108.

Cross made the quarters finals of UK Open the week before and the long-awaited title win looks to be round the corner. Aspinall has got the better of Voltage in their two PL meetings this year but I believe it’s going to be third time lucky for Cross, who has won his opening match the past four nights.

Asp is definitely beatable, having lost his last three matches in all comps and is struggling for form. 4/7 is a fair price for one of the form players on tour at the moment.

You can back all three selections as a treble which currently pays 14/5.
