Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright – Match Predictions

This fixture is all about Gerwyn Price’s push to finish top of the table in the regular standings, which gives him the advantage of playing the fourth-placed finisher in the semi-finals on Finals Night. Here are our darts predictions for the match.

Prediction 1: Gerwyn Price -1.5 Handicap @ 4/6 (1.67)

It’s hard to see Peter Wright having a lot of interest in this match. He’s at the foot of the standings and would need a big effort to avoid the wooden spoon. It’s just not been there for ‘Snakebite’ this season. Price looks likely to finish top and will want to keep up his strong form ahead of Finals night.

Prediction 2: Price King of the Oche @ 7/4 (2.75)

As Price is the expected winner of this contest and we do expect him to get the job done comfortably, we can push for him to be King of the Oche. That’s Price winning the match, recording the most 180s in it and securing the highest checkout. Winning the match is pretty much going to ensure he finishes top of the Premier League standings.

Gerwyn Price and Peter Wright Latest Form and Performances

Before getting to this exciting clash at the Oche, we next have a look at the current form of the two players.

Price Targets Top Spot

Price is deservedly top of the pile this season and he has been to the final in four of the last five rounds of PL action. The ‘Iceman’ is the only player to have reached a tally of one hundred 180s this season. He skipped the Czech Darts Open on the weekend, so heads to Aberdeen fresh.

Peter Wright Tamely Bows Out

There was a turn up for the books on the weekend, as the out-of-sorts Peter Wright powered his way to the Czech Darts Open title on the European Tour. He churned out some decent performances, the likes of which have rarely been seen in this season’s PL. Wright, with a W5 L15 Premier League Darts record this term, is adrift by a couple of points at the foot of the standings.
