Chris Dobey vs Nathan Aspinall – Match Predictions
Chris Dobey was the first player off the mark this season in the Premier League, winning the Final on the opening night. But there have been struggles since for him and it’s Aspinall that goes as the match favourite. We dig into the match further for darts predictions.
Prediction 1: Aspinall To Win
The form of Dobey in the Premier League has petered out after a bright start, so we are going with Aspinall. The consistency of The Asp is what gets the nod here. He’s the only player to have spent every week in the top four of the Premier League Darts standings. The first darts prediction for the night in this one is just the straight win for the player out of the two who is in better form.
Prediction 2: Aspinall -2.5 Handicap
Aspinall is more than capable of firing off a rapid victory with his heavy scoring. Considering that Dobey’s recent defeats (all tournaments) have seen him struggle to get close to most of his opponents, then it may be worth pushing for a bigger handicap line for our next darts tip.
Chris Dobey and Nathan Aspinall Latest Form and Performances
The winner of this match, the third of the night, will move ahead to meet either Michael Smith or Dimitri Van den Bergh in the semi-finals. To get a bigger picture ahead of this clash we look in closer detail at the recent form.
Dobey’s Form Struggles To Trip Him Up Again
The chances of Dobey coming up with a victory in this match don’t look particularly high. He goes to Liverpool with just one victory in his last five matches, which was in the opening round of the UK Open. Each of his last three defeats has happened by a margin of at least three legs. His win in the Final of Night 1 of this year’s Premier League feels like a very long time ago.
Nathan Aspinall Performances (Heading Title Should Be Enticing)
There has been good consistency from Nathan Aspinall in the Premier League this season, having reached at least the semi-finals on all but one of the Nights so far. Only Michael van Gerwen has won more legs against the darts than Apsinall has done in this season’s league. He was going well at this month’s UK Open before he bumped into MVG.
Chris Dobey vs Nathan Aspinall Head to Head
There has been a Premier League meeting between the two players already this year, with Dobey taking a 6-4 win back in Night 1’s semi-finals. That was against the grain, as it was Dobby’s first win in six meetings with Aspinall.
