It is Night 7 action of the 2023 Premier League Darts with Dimitri Van den Bergh squaring up to Nathan Aspinall in an interesting quarter-final clash. Both of the players bowed out in last week’s semi-finals and there may not be much between them on the night.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Dimitri Van den Bergh vs Nathan Aspinall – Match Predictions
Even though Aspinall is the only player not to have been outside the top four in the Premier League Darts this season, he’s the underdog for this one. Van Den Bergh has already got the better of him once this season in the league and holds a commanding head-to-head advantage.
Prediction 1: Van den Bergh to win
The head-to-head is where we turn for the first of our Premier League darts predictions for this match. When the two met back in February in the early rounds of this season’s campaign, Van den Bergh powered his way to a big 6-1 win. That was the DreamMaker’s ninth straight win against Aspinall, so he clearly holds an edge.
Prediction 2: Van den Bergh -1.5 handicap
We are not going to lean towards another big hammering for Nathan Aspinall in this one. That 6-1 loss he suffered against Van den Bergh on Night 3 saw him catch the DreamMaker on a night when the Belgian just had his eye in. Van den Bergh rattled off a 105 three-dart average on the night and was just unstoppable. While he may win this again, the -1.5 handicap on him to cover looks just right.
Dimitri Van den Bergh and Nathan Aspinall Latest Form and Performances
This is in the top section of the draw for Thursday night in Nottingham. The winner of the night’s opening match will go ahead to face Jonny Clayton or Gerwyn Price. To piece this puzzle of darts predictions together, we next look at the current form of the two players.
DreamMaker can grab his chance at the top of the draw
The set-up of the Night 7 draw gives Van den Bergh a good chance at making progress towards the top half of the table. He goes into the night in fifth place, with four wins in ten matches played this season. The DreamMaker can take heart from his semi-final berth last week and he has the best checkout percentage in this season’s league.
Aspinall running steady but can he find an edge?
Nathan Aspinall will be happy with life sitting in the top four. He has been steady enough with 6 wins in 12 matches this season. But he is the only player occupying a top-four spot without a Night win this season. He has reached four semi-finals in six rounds, so he’s hard to knock and that’s why this could go close.
Dimitri Van den Bergh vs Nathan Aspinall Head to Head
Dimitri Van den Bergh bosses this head-to-head with a nine-match winning streak going against The Asp. That’s such an unusually strong trend that it just can’t be ignored in Premier League darts betting predictions. Three of the DreamMaker’s last four wins over Aspinall have been by at least a four-leg margin.
