PDC - Darts: Premier League goes Dutch on night seven

For the first time in 2022, the Premier League Darts heads away from the UK with Rotterdam being the latest venue to host the sport's prestigious roadshow.

Michael van Gerwen currently tops the field heading into his home contest, with Peter Wright a couple of points behind him.

At the bottom, Joe Cullen brings up the rear as the newbie still looks for a first night win, with Michael Smith and James Wade in the same boat.

Home favourite Van Gerwen seeking a third win

Van Gerwen's dreadful 2021, where he failed to win a televised major tournament, was well-documented but MvG is going some way to prove he is not a spent force in the darting world this year.

Alongside a win on the European Tour a couple of weeks ago, Van Gerwen has triumphed twice in the Premier League's new nightly knockout format.

Exeter and Brighton saw him win the £10,000 bonus pot, as well as taking the maximum five-point haul at each event, and that sees him top of the table after six rounds of action.

He is still not yet back to his spellbinding Phil Taylor-esque best - and it is perhaps unlikely that will ever be the case again - but there is still plenty of life in Van Gerwen yet and the roar of the home faithful may just spur him on to win again on Thursday.

Van Gerwen takes on Smith in the quarter-finals and the Dutchman can be backed at 8/15 to win that showdown with Smith 6/4.

Anderson's campaign gets lift-off

Gary Anderson had been bottom of the table heading to Nottingham last week following four straight losses.

The Flying Scotsman had underperformed up until his visit to Motorpoint Arena and questions were once again being asked about his commitment to the sport, so it was a pleasant surprise to see him play so well.

He beat Jonny Clayton and Peter Wright to set up a final with Michael Smith, whom he beat with an average of over 104.

Anderson kicks off night seven against Joe Cullen, who has one runner-up and one semi-final spot to show for his efforts so far this season, with the Scot available to back at 8/11, while Cullen is 11/10.

Wales' darting icons do battle once more

Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton meet on the big stage once against as the two friends and Welsh international colleagues look to serve up another classic contest.

The duo have shared some great moments on stage - Clayton's 5-1 set thrashing in the Grand Prix final last year was a highlight, while Price has also dished out a couple of beatings on his compatriot in the Matchplay and Grand Slam.

Even though Clayton is still ranked number nine in the world, owing to the fact most of his TV titles (including the Premier League) are unranked, he is still rated as one of the best in the game right now and it is difficult to separate him and Price.

Clayton is 11/10 to beat Price with the Iceman available at 8/11.

World number one seeks second win

Two veterans of the darting world collide as Peter Wright faces James Wade in Rotterdam, with the former currently sitting second in the table.

After winning the opening night in Cardiff, Wright hasn't tasted victory since, but he has been largely consistent, making one final and two semis.

A first Premier League outright title is the overarching aim for the world number one and he opens against 2009 winner Wade on night seven.

Wade is one of three players yet to taste victory this year - the closest he came was losing the Belfast final to Price.

Wright can be backed at 4/9 to win his quarter-final with Wade 7/4.
