Pete’s DPL Betting Tips for Night 14
- bet365 has boosted Gerwyn Price to out 180 Gary Anderson from 5/6 to 11/8 which is definitely worth looking at.
- Expect there to be over 6.5 180s in the match between Michael Smith and Jonny Clayton which is worth 6/5 at bet365.
- We can see Michael van Gerwen to near whitewash Peter Wright 6-1 which bet365 has priced up as a 17/2 chance.
All of these betting lines were correct as of May 17th at 5 PM UK Time.
Jonny Clayton won his fourth Darts Premier League night of the season last Thursday in Glasgow to go six points clear at the top of the table.
The Ferret beat second-placed Michael van Gerwen 6-3 in front of over 9,000 fans at the OVO Hydro Arena.
The win for Clayton, along with MVG’s earlier win over Joe Cullen, means that the Welshman’s place in the play offs is now secure with only three regular-season weeks left to run.
Mighty Mike had the defending champion on the ropes with the Ferret capitalizing on four uncharacteristically missed darts from Van Gerwen to break throw in the final and move 5-3 ahead.

He then sealed the win with a check out of 68 in the following leg.
This was Clayton’s sixth final in this year’s competition, and he began the night with a 6-2 victory over the previous week’s winner James Wade before meeting and beating local hero Gary Anderson in the second round.
Anderson himself finally banked some points after overcoming Peter Wright in the opening game of the night, while Van Gerwen opened up his night with a tight 6-5 win over Joe Cullen before progressing to a 6-5 victory over Michael Smith in the semi-final stage.
The Premier League of Darts roadshow now moves on to Sheffield this week for Night 14.
Joe Cullen v James Wade
Nigh 14 of the 2022 Premier League Darts gets underway with James Wade taking on Joe Cullen.
Having banked a pair of nightly wins, Wade is looking to cement his top four position after going out of the first round a week ago in Scotland.
The Machine has a ten-point gap over his rival this week and boasts the highest tournament doubles and check-out percentage with 44%.
The Rockstar, on the other hand, has the lowest percentage with 37%.
However, despite having the lowest tournament average, Cullen has recorded more 180s than his opponent this week.
Cullen has his own ideas of making the play offs and is trying to chase down five points from Peter Wright who, while currently in fourth place, needs to get motoring if he is to survive.
A win here for the Rockstar followed by a good run in his native Yorkshire would see his challenge for that fourth spot reignite ahead of the final week.
In what will likely be a close affair, I think Wade will likely just about edge it and head through to the next round.
Gary Anderson v Gerwyn Price
Game number two sees Gary Anderson take on former world number one Gerwyn Price.
While it is still mathematically possible, neither of these two look like being in Rotterdam for the finals.
It might have been five years ago, but it’s still impossible with these two not to remember their on-stage argument back at the Grand Slam of Darts.
That, after all, is the main source of the boos that still rain down on the Welshman to this day, proving that the fans haven’t forgotten.
In all, both of these have performed so badly that I’m expecting a low-quality affair.
Both players are former world champions and both players can switch on the class at any point, but neither looks like they are about to and the two of them looked disinterested.
Nevertheless, the pair of them need to play at least another three games before their misery is over.
Despite an impressive win over a lackluster Peter Wright a week ago in Glasgow, I’m leaning towards the Iceman as, out of the two of them, he has the best chance of reaching the last four, however unlikely that is, but could provide some inspiration at least.
Michael van Gerwen v Peter Wright
The glamour tie of the evening sees ‘Mighty’ Michael van Gerwen take on the world number one Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright.
Both men are currently sitting in the play off spots, but Wright, who still can’t settle on a set of darts, has been out of sorts in the past month.
Wright still has only one night title in this year’s campaign and that came in week one, which is why we’re backing the Dutchman in this one.
The Green Machine has the highest tournament average of all and has won three nights and reached six finals and is, at times, looking back to his imperious best.
It’s definitely worth backing MVG in the penultimate quarter-final of night 14.
Michael Smith v Jonny Clayton
The runaway leader of this year’s Darts Premier League, Jonny Clayton meets the struggling Michael Smith in the final match of the first round.
The Ferret has four night titles to his name so far, including last week in Glasgow, and has banked points pretty much every week so far.
In contrast, Bully Boy is the only player left in the tourney to still not won at least one night and looks close to certain to miss out on Rotterdam.
It really is hard to make a case for Smith and I just can’t see anything other than a win for the Welshman, given he is in the form of his life and, at the time of writing, playing like the best arrow chucker in the world right now.
