Michael van Gerwen vs James Wade: Under 6.5 180's (1.66)
Wade hasn't scored a single 180 in his past 3 matches. Current World Champion Michael van Gerwen sure can score many 180's but he only got 1 in last week's Premier League match against Phil Taylor. Wade and van Gerwen's combined average 180 score of this PL season is just about 5 per game.
Kim Huybrechts vs Gary Anderson: Kim Huybrechts +2.5: (1.90)
Huybrechts has won 3 of 4 of the previous battles (all in 2016) against Anderson, who suffered a big loss last week against Raymond van Barnevald, a player he hadn't lost to in 10 matches. Only 1-2 legs have seperated Huybrechts and Anderson in their previous 10 matches.
Peter Wright vs Phil Taylor: Peter Wright to win, draw no bet (1.53)
Peter Wright has played extremely well lately. The fact is that he has only lost 3 of 16 matches this year and is at the top of the Premier League table with 11 points after 7 matches played.
16-time World Championship Phil Taylor recently announced that he will soon retire from professional darts.
"It's hard to get motivated and keep up the practice and to dedicate myself week-in, week-out. That is what takes the toll My body cannot take the toll of 4-5 hours on the practice board anymore. It's difficult for me," Taylor said in an interview with The Sun on 27th January, 2017.
Lack of practise and motivation could be two of the key reasons why Taylor has not played his very best lately (he has lost his previous 2 matches and 2 draws before that).
Taylor is still very capable though, so we play it safe and go for Peter Wright as winner with draw no bet as a little protection.
Jelle Klaasen vs Adrian Lewis: Klaasen +2.5 (1.80)
Klaasen is at the bottom of the table with 3 points after 7 played Premier League matches. On the other hand, he has won 4 of the 5 previous games against Adrian Lewis, who sits in the middle of the table with 7 points.
+2.5 handicap on Klaasen to the odds 1.80 should be a good bet.
Michael van Gerwen vs Raymond van Barnevald: Raymond van Barnevald +2.5 (2.10)
The two fellow countrymen (the Netherlands) will once again face off on the big stage in what should be the best game of the evening. van Barnevald has played very well lately and he comes fresh from a 7-2 victory against 2015 and 2016 World Champ Gary Anderson last week.
Michael van Gerwen is the current World Champion and he's undefeated so far in the Premier League after 6 matches played. We expect him and van Barnevald to put on a very good match with many 180's and high checkouts.
We will go for +2.5 legs on Raymond van Barnevald
