Premier League Darts descends on Dublin on Thursday night with Glen Durrant making the early running at the top of the table in his maiden outing in the tournament.
Here’s our look at how things stand after the first few weeks of this year’s competition.
Premier League Darts 2020 | State of Play
Five-time champion Michael van Gerwen (1/1) still looks the man to beat at the head of the Premier League Darts betting despite slipping to defeat to Nathan Aspinall in Cardiff last time out.
He goes up against hometown favourite William O’Connor on Thursday in arguably the tie of the round. Challenger O’Connor (ranked 37 on the PDC Order of Merit) will be relying on a partisan crowd to help pull off a statement win at 3Arena. He’s 7/1 with Marathonbet to get the Dublin crowd rocking with a shock victory on Thursday night.
Glen Durrant hasn’t looked phased on his debut in this competition with wins against Premier League Darts stalwarts Michael Smith and Gary Anderson catapulting the former BDO champion into the early tournament lead. He opens proceedings in Dublin against Nathan Aspinall and currently offers interesting value at 14/1 in the Premier League Dart outright market.
It’s not been a great start to the tournament for 2019 semi-finalist Daryl Gurney, currently stuck at the bottom of the pile after failing to win any of his first three games. He takes on Michael Smith in round four, with Bully Boy bagging another handy point after playing out a 6-6 thriller with Gerwyn Price.
Welshman Price rounds off the evening against Scotsman Peter Wright, with Rob Cross and Gary Anderson resuming rivalries in another stand-out tie from night four.
