talkSPORT betting tips – Best darts bets and expert advice for Premier League Darts

Luke Littler broke his Premier League duck in Belfast a week ago and is 5/2 in a row in Week 10 at the AO Arena, Manchester.

Littler beat Luke Humphries, Michael van Gerwen and Nathan Aspinall to claim his first night prize in his debut campaign, while reducing Humphries’ lead at the top of the overall standings to four points.

Although his advantage has dropped from seven to four points, Humphries is 1/2 to finish top of the league and 13/8 to go on to win the tournament.

  • Luke Humphries to win Week 10 at 2/1
  • Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright over 9.5 stages @ Evens
  • Nathan Aspinall will beat Rob Cross @ Evens

Humphries a nice call for AO Arena Glory

Michael van Gerwen was the first man to admit Luke Humphries is currently playing at a different level after crashing out 8-1 to the Englishman in the German Grand Prix final on Monday.

It was another stunning performance from Humphries, who beat Van Gerwen with an average of 112, his fourth average of 106 in the five matches he played in Germany.

It was just the latest masterclass from a player who has won three times in the Premier League in the last four weeks, fresh from reaching the final of the UK Open.

Humphries opens against Michael Smith in Manchester, a player he beat 6-2 in Dublin two weeks ago, with the winner facing either Gerwyn Price or Peter Wright. Meanwhile, Littler and Van Gerwen meet in the first round in the other half of the draw.

Take the 2/1 that Humphries is even clearer at the end of the evening in taking the five points on offer.

Snake bite can take Gezzy to the wire

Backmarkers Peter Wright and Gerwyn Price have only met once in the competition so far, a 6-5 win for Snakebite in Nottingham in week seven.

It was Wright’s first victory of the campaign – he’s picked up one more since – and he seems destined for the wooden spoon.

The two faced off again on Sunday at the German Grand Prix in Munich, this time Price prevailing by a score of 6-4.

Price, who has arguably played the better of the two men this season, is a short price even though he has only won one game in the last six Thursdays.

He could well stand out in this competition, but the last four quarter-final could be a scrappy affair and worth considering to go the distance.

Aspinall will continue the cross conquest

Nathan Aspinall and Rob Cross meet in the opening quarter-final in Manchester, the fifth time the two have faced tungsten in the first nine weeks of the campaign.

And given that The Asp has won the previous four meetings, is above Cross in the rankings and has a higher world ranking, it’s difficult to oppose him on even terms.

Aspinall has reached four finals in the last six Thursdays while Cross is in somewhat of a bad shape after suffering three first hurdle flops in the last three weeks.
