James Wade Darts Premier League

Pete’s Best Darts Betting Tips for Night 11

  • Taking form into consideration, I like the look of the boosted 7/1 on a 6-2 Jonny Clayton victory over Gary Anderson at bet365.
  • In the matchup between Gerwyn Price and Michael van Gerwen, we’re sure these two heavy hitters could fill up the T20, so over 5.5 180s looks pretty good?
  • You can also get 6/4 on James wade to break first in his match against Michael Smith at bet365.

All betting lines current as of 10:33 AM UK Time on April 20th.

The 2022 Darts Premier League has another new nightly winner after James Wade finally broke his DPL duck.

The Machine’s win over Joe Cullen in the final of night ten, now leaves Michael Smith as the only remaining player in the tournament still to win a night.

Playing in Manchester, Wade became the seventh different weekly winner after ten Thursday nights of action.

Wade’s triumph over the Rockstar came in his fourth final having reached the last two on night two when Gerwyn Price hit his second nine-darter of the night.

Since then, he has reached the last three finals, losing out to Jonny Clayton and Michael van Gerwen before finally getting a win on the board against Cullen, himself playing in his second final.

In the final, Wade posted an average of 105.48 and pinned six of his nine darts at doubles in a brilliant display.

In contrast, the Rockstar, who had initially gone 2-0 ahead, wasted six of his 11 attempts at the outer ring.

An average of 93 per round earlier was enough for James Wade to overcome Gerwyn Price who had himself taken care of Peter Wright in the quarter-finals.

Earlier on, Wade recorded a dominant 6-2 triumph over Gary Anderson in which he averaged 100.1.

Match Of The Tournament So Far

Last Thursday will also be remembered for the best match we have seen in this year’s Premier League of Darts where Michael van Gerwen and Jonny Clayton met in the first round.

The Ferret averaged 109.1 compared to Mighty Mike’s 105.14, in a match that went backwards and forwards before MVG missed a match dart when shooting for his fourth ton plus finish of the night, leaving the Welshman to nick a 12 darter.

And it’s the Ferret that throws first this week in Aberdeen.

Jonny Clayton v Gary Anderson

We get underway this week with bottom-placed Gary Anderson walking out against Jonny Clayton.

Anderson can take heart from the fact that he will have the support of the Scottish crowd, just as Clayton did in night one in Cardiff.

This week’s trip to Scotland is actually the first of two visits north of the border sandwiched in between a trip to Dublin.

Hopefully, that brings the best out of the Flying Scotsman who really needs the points right now.

The form player of the two is Clayton who last week beat Michael van Gerwen before coming unstuck against Joe Cullen.

The Ferret, a double night winner, has a tournament average of 97.10, compared to Gary Anderson’s, but has played an extra 18 games and looks in much better shape than his rival right now.

Peter Wright v Joe Cullen

There is another Scotsman in the second match of the night where Peter Wright takes on big hitting Joe Cullen.

No one in this year’s Darts Premier League has landed more 180s than the Rockstar, but he does have a tournament-low average of 91.84, established over 14 games.

Snakebite is still stuck on just the one night title and fell at the first last week against a slowly improving Gerwyn Price.

Wright has the second-highest average of the tourney so far and boasts a much better doubles percentage which is why I’m backing Snakebite to come good in Scotland.

James Wade v Michael Smith

Having reached the last three finals, it seems crazy that James Wade is as heavy as 14/1 with bet365 to win this week’s. Crazier still, he’s 15/2 in the same sportsbook to win the Darts Premier League outright.

The Machine is in top form and carries a far greater threat than he is given credit for and has won eleven PDC majors in his time.

Only Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen have won more and now that he is back in a good place such a price is hard to ignore.

As for Bully Boy, he remains the only player left in the competition to win a night and was out in the first round a week ago, so this one definitely feels like a Wade win, especially given as he throws first.

Gerwyn Price v Michael van Gerwen

We finish with a massive match between two of the world’s top three.

It’s hard to know exactly where Gerwyn Price is at right now.

He has gone hugely off the boil and has been dealing with an injury that is clearly costing him points.

Last week we saw both sides of his game at the moment – as well as a new walk on theme – as he comfortably beat Peter Wright in the quarters, before losing out to James Wade in the semis.

The Iceman hasn’t enjoyed the greatest of Premier League campaigns and his opponent, who went out first round seven days ago, is top of the league with a massive leg difference.

This one really could go either way, but in this short format race to six, I’ll side with the Welshman purely because he throws first.

James Wade Wins World Series Of Darts Finals; MVG Goes Into 2018 Grand Slam Of Darts As 10:11 Favourite

James Wade World Series of Darts

One week from putting an end to his half-decade wait for a TV championship win at the European Championship, James ‘The Machine’ Wade won another as he beat Michael Smith 11-10 in the final of the World Series of Darts Finals.

Wade’s TV double came in Vienna after a hard-fought match that only began to split after The Machine broke to a 10-9, only to miss two darts for the match. This fumble allowed Smith back in the match from where he managed to force a deciding leg where he would throw first. Just like his opponent at the oche, Bully Boy also dropped his two championship shots.

In a match where seemingly no one wanted to win, Wade couldn’t take out his required 141, instead, letting Smith in for three shots at the double 20. Missing all three, Wade returned to take out the double 18 in one shot to bring home the title, his second in as many weeks. The Machine, who knocked out Raymond van Barneveld in the semi-final, hit five 180s and averaged 97 in the match where he would win his ninth career TV title. Smith, who one round earlier dispensed of Welshman Gerwyn Price, would average 99 and hit five maximums.

A look at the Grand Slam of Darts matchups

This Saturday sees the Sky Sports-televised Grand Slam of Darts, which takes place at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton from November 10-18. This unique tournament features players from both the PDC and BDO, which is combining to make a field of 32 in a 24/8 split. The event’s structure sees eight groups of four in a round-robin phase make up a first round, before the remaining 16 players go through to the knockout stages. During the round robin phase, each player will face off against each other once in a best-of-nine legs match, with two points going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen has been grouped with Jonny Clayton, Joe Murnan and Gary Robson in Group A, while Michael Smith headlines Group B with Raymond van Barneveld, Krzysztof Ratajski and Adam Smith-Neale.

The in-form James Wade faces a tough Group C that includes Keegan Brown, Mark Webster and Wesley Harms, while Group D pits Ian White, Steve Hine and Michael Unterbuchner against Gary Anderson. Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright, seeded second, leads Group E where his opponents will be Max Hopp, Josh Payne and Jim Williams.

BDO world champion Glen Durrant goes in Group F, along with Simon Whitlock, Gerwyn Price and Andrew Gilding, while Mensur Suljovic will be the favourite in Group G that includes qualifier Stephen Bunting plus Martin Schindler and Scott Mitchell. Reigning PDC world champion Rob Cross will meet Ryan Searle and Mark McGeeney along with hot prospect Dimitri van den Bergh in Group H.

Grand Slam of Darts Betting Tips

Despite not being quite as dominant in the second half of this year, three-time defending champion Michael van Gerwen is the 10/11 favourite to lift the trophy for the fourth year in a row. The PDC world number one showed his class with last month’s World Grand Prix triumph, however, and it’s up to the likes of Gary Anderson, Peter Wright to stop him. Worryingly for the challengers though is that the format of this event suits the 29-year-old Dutchman — is there one that doesn’t? — who can utilise his three group matches to gather momentum as the competition goes on.

Of course, the same can be said for world number one and three Gary ‘The Flying Scotsman’ Anderson and Peter Wright. Anderson, in particular, offers the biggest threat to Mighty Mike and Betway have installed a 5/1 price on his head to win the tournament. Don’t discount a rejuvenated James Wade, fresh from his dual wins on the European circuit in Dortmund and Vienna. Betway are offering 20/1 on Wade and 9/1 on Wright to win outright. Mensur Suljovic is the other name worth considering this coming week after such an improved season. He can be picked up for 18/1.

Glen Durrant is my pick of the BDO qualifiers at 33/1 after reaching the quarter-finals last year, although emulating Scott Waites as the only other past winner from the BDO is a very tall order. In fact, Betway have priced any winner from the BDO at 20/1. Rob Cross fans can back their boy at 14/1, while Michael Smith, still looking for his first televised win, is available on 20/1, which is 30 points away from Gerwyn Price’s 50/1, again at Betway.
