Chris Dobey vs Jonny Clayton – Match Predictions

This match kicks off the Night 12 action in Rotterdam and is a clash between two players who have some vastly contrasting form as of late. The winner of this will face either Michael van Gerwen or Jonny Clayton in the semis.

Prediction 1: Clayton -1.5 Handicap

Jonny Clayton, who has won two of the last three rounds of Premier League action, suffered a quarter-final defeat last week. The pressure is all on him in this one as he fights to keep his place in the top four. So we expect Clayton to just have a bit more about his game on the night.

Prediction 2: Clayton 6-4 Correct Score

Masters champion Chris Dobey has been going through a dry spell in the Premier League and is now winless in his last four matches in the competition. So he’s hard to throw much support at. Dobey hasn’t been getting the wins in recent Players Championship matches either, so remains vulnerable.

It’s now time to assess the latest form that has been delivered by Chris Dobey and Jonny Clayton, which helps drive our darts predictions for the Night 12 match.

Hollywood has had his lights dimmed

Chris Dobey has had more quarter-final exits in this season’s Premier League than successes at the same stage. It’s been a rough ride for him as of late, having bowed out of the quarter-finals in each of the last three rounds. He’s not shining as bright and recent misfires in Players Championship events may see him coming up short again.

Clayton Can Go On The Charge

After winning Rounds 10 and 11, Jonny Clayton was brought back down to Earth last week with a quarter-final defeat. That may serve as a good boost to get him back in the zone again in what appears to be a winnable opening match of the night. The Welshman has won eight of his last ten matches in all competitions.

Chris Dobey vs Jonny Clayton Head to Head

There has been just one Premier League meeting between the two players this season, which ended in a 6-1 victory for Clayton. That’s been the scoreline the last two times they have met (all competitions). Clayton is 3-2 up in the last five clashes.
