The Night 11 action in Brighton starts with Van den Bergh vs Michael van Gerwen. Van Gerwen is an odds-on-match favourite. Read our darts predictions for the match below.
Prediction 1: MVG To Win & Have Highest Checkout @ 10/11
Dimitri Van den Bergh looks to be out of the race for a top-four finish. The Belgian is in a bit of a slump at the moment with his current form, so we have to lean towards Michael van Gerwen coming through with the win. Van Gerwen has had The DreamMaker in his pocket this season, and we see MVG winning comfortably again.
Prediction 2: Michael van Gerwen -2.5 Handicap @ 13/10
Most of the meetings between these two players this year have been lopsided affairs, with Van Gerwen winning each of them. The most recent meeting was at the end of March on the PDC European Tour and MVG won that 6-2. With that, in mind, we are going to push our darts predictions to a bigger handicap line for MVG to cover.
Dimitri Van den Bergh and Michael van Gerwen Latest Form and Performances
To look at the bigger picture of things ahead of this meeting, we next dive into the current form of the two players.
The DreamMaker Facing A Nightmare
Dimitri Van den Bergh has seen his form in the league drop away. He has won only one of his last six matches in the competition and has made a quarter-final exit on each of the last three Nights. It’s a five-match losing streak for him currently in all competitions and The DreamMaker faces a nightmare of a match on Thursday to try and arrest this slump.
Reliable MVG To Motor Ahead?
Michael van Gerwen hasn’t won a Night of Premier League action since Night 6. But he has only lost two quarter-final matches all season, and he has been top of the standings since Night 4. He rocketed through last week’s quarter-final match against Chris Dobey when his form was just being questioned. He may do the same here.
Dimitri Van den Bergh vs Michael van Gerwen Head to Head
Michael van Gerwen has won both Premier League meetings this season by a 6-4 scoreline. In all competitions against Van den Bergh in 2023, it’s five wins from five for MVG. Van Gerwen is W9 D1 in his last ten against the Belgian.
